Jimmy had the strongest of work ethics.

He was saving his money to buy his first car. He worked in the natural gas and industrial gas industry as well as the trucking industry for most of his adult life.

After recovering from hip replacement due to an accident in 2015, he returned to work as an owner/operator at Genox Transportation Inc, until the time of his death.
Jimmy was nominated as Driver-of-the-Year at DMC, Inc as a top 5 finalist in the nation. he took pride in his work performance whether he was mowing his lawn or delivering cryogenic liquids or helping a fellow worker through a difficult situation.
His family, next to our God was most important to him. caring for his family and always putting them before himself was natural to him.
Thanksgiving and Christmas were his holidays. Giving and fellowshipping with family, making his famous fudge, and planning the entire season gave him so much joy. So much since he passed sharing many memories. We have found that you take for granted every day. His love for each of us was immeasurable.
Most of all Jimmy’s love and trust for the Lord. He never left the yard without praying, whether starting at 3 week tour or just after taking a break, he gave it all to the Lord. He will be greatly missed.
