Jimmy took pride in everything he did, whether it was work, coaching/watching his sons play baseball, spending time with his daughter, or loving his beautiful wife. He strived to give his children the best life possible and lived life to the fullest, touching many hearts along the way. He always kept a positive outlook on life and influenced others to do the same.
As founder and owner of Father & Son Construction Co. for 25 years, he had many loyal clients who could always depend on them for their repair or remodeling projects. Also, as a faithful member of The Church of the Living God for 30 years, he served God in many areas of ministry including usher, youth leader, deacon, and elder. Jimmy enjoyed surfing, fishing, being outdoors and being in the company of family and friends. The community will remember him by his warm smile and open heart.
