Jimmy grew up in Apalachicola and Port St. Joe (Class of 1958) and cherished the memories of those years dearly. He moved to Mobile in 1959 and worked at Scott Paper Company until his health forced him into early retirement. He returned to Port St. Joe as often as possible throughout the years to visit family and friends.
A memorial service is tentatively scheduled in Port St. Joe for 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, November 18, 2012 with visitation after the service. Details will be provided in the Nov. 15 issue of The Star.
