Several great grandchildren as well as a host of cousins, including his cousin that was more like a sister to him Juanita Goodwin. Jimmy graduated from The Alabama School of the Deaf in Talladega, Alabama in 1967. There he obtained a barber’s license. He was inducted into the ASD Football Hall of Fame in 2008. He was one of the quickest halfbacks with 10 career touchdowns. He earned All County in 1964.
His deafness never stopped him from doing anything. He could talk to anybody and always did. He worked at Home Depot in Flowery Branch, Georgia for 19 years in the hardware department and also did some security. He loved his Home Depot family, dearly. He loved carpentry and was a handyman. One of his all-time biggest loves was Alabama Football. He would always tell you “Roll Tide!!” He loved the Lord, and his last wish and prayer is that his family will join him in heaven one day. The family would like to extend a special thanks to Angela, Patricia, John, Juanita, and Donna with North East Georgia Medical Center Hospice. A Celebration of Jimmy’s life will be held at a later date.
