Jimmy was an avid fisherman and the only thing he loved more was his family. He loved fishing so much he even taught his two daughters. Throughout his life he enjoyed fishing, bowling, horseshoes, playing cards, gardening and family trips to the beach. You could also find him cheering on one of his favorite sports teams; Tennessee Vols, Tennessee Titans and the Atlanta Braves. He loved great music and a bonfire with family and friends. He was the life of the party and to know him was to love him.
