We are all deeply saddened by the loss of Jimmy. He is a life-long friend. Jimmy, this is for you: Crossing the Bar -Alfred Lord Tennyson Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea, But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crost the bar.

Rest in peace Jimmy.

When I first met Jimmy we became instant friends, and that was over 50 years ago. We were in C Battery 230th FA a National Guard Unit! We were certainly a “band of brothers” different, ages, backgrounds, education, but worked well together. And we have many great memories of those years! Jimmy was always a gear head, was our unit Motor Sargent, and at that time he had the coolest sports car in Savannah a gold Avanti! Since I’ve moved back to Savannah we have gone to dinner or drinks a few time a month. Jimmy seem to always have some interesting stories to tell, and loved telling them. He always loved his dogs, and since losing his last one Sky, he was looking forward to getting a new puppy, and had already named her! Later my good friend! Hope to see you on the other side some day.

I was so heart broken when I heard that Jimmy has passed away. Jimmy was such a good friend and would do anything for anybody. He loved Lynn so much and now they are together again. I loved her also. She sang at my husbands Fred Bonners funeral so I guess she is singing for all of them. May God take care of all of you. All my love to all our friends that gone on before us.

So very sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are up for each of the family members. RIP Jimmy

I met Jimmy about 33 years ago when he and Lynn started dating. I knew without a doubt, this was the start of something. They just clicked and were the perfect couple. We were “threes company” for a few months when I lived with them. I will never forget them for taking me in. Lynn was the love of his life, and thanks to them, I met the love of mine. I can’t be sad that you are gone, since I know you are with your “Lynn Carol” once again. Rest easy our friend, until we meet again. Love, Margie & Roland

Jimmy (& Lynn) were our neighbors on Tybee, they quickly became our family, Lynn & Jimmy welcomed us to Laurel Avenue and made our new house a home. The amount of love they had for each other was a such a special bond, we were there when he lost her, and a broken man he became. I know without a doubt there was such a rejoicing celebration in Heaven when they joined each other again. Rest in paradise my friend(s).

- Carrie Harvill, Tybee Island , GA

Love and Prayers for comfort to all of Jim’s family and close friends. I have fond memories of him from growing up in Kensington Park and attending Jenkins High School together.

We grew up on Andover Drive and knew each other in high school. He always had a positive thing to say to anyone having a hard time and we shared the pain of losing our spouses. Just the night before he left us, he sent me another funny video for which I thank him. I hope he knew how much his kindnesses meant to me. Rest in peace, Jimmy.
