Jimmy never met a stranger, never thought bad of a person, and never met a person in need he wouldn’t help. He loved fishing, flying, hunting and most of all family, friends, and fur babies, always at least 5 dogs and a couple cats. Farming was a way of life as was the vol. fire department (26 years plus). Strong family man with great love for his family. Jimmy felt most at home on his loader clearing lots and helping others, and to Betty, he was the most loving person in her life.
