Celebrating the life of

James G. "Jimmy" Neville

September 05, 1940 - May 17, 2022

James G.

James G. "Jimmy" Neville, age 81, died May 17 at Pruitt Health & Rehabilitation.  He was born in Savannah on September 5, 1940 to George Grady and Mamie Hagin Neville.  He was a graduate of Savannah High School.  He was a retired Master Technician for RCA, a member of Bible Baptist Church, and was a veteran of the U.S. Army.  Following his retirement, he volunteered as a security guard at Calvary Day School, and loved working in his yard and cleaning his pool.  

Jimmy loved his wife, loved his children, especially his grandchildren, and also loved the Lord and was a faithful Christian.  His world was not the same without Linda, who preceded him in death after 51 years of marriage, and we know that they are together again.  He always had the best sense of humor and enjoyed making everyone laugh.

He is survived by his son, Glynn Neville (Debbie); his daughter, Sheree Holloway (Dale); and grandchildren, Taylor Neville (Mariah), Clayton Neville (Victoria), Hayden Holloway (Brianna), Gavin Holloway, and Kaylee Holloway.

A visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 25, from 10:00 until 11:00 a.m. at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel, with the funeral service to follow at 11:00 a.m.

Burial will be in Hillcrest Abbey Memorial Park on Wheaton Street.

GUEST BOOK

Sheree & G;ynn: I was so sad to hear of Jimmy's death today. Unfortunately, I didn't hear about it until lunch time and it was too late to attend visitation and service. Bill and I had some good times with Linda & Jimmy in the past. I know Jimmy will be happy to be reunited with Linda again.

I am so sorry to see that your dad has passed away. He was always such a caring, easygoing guy. I know you will miss him terribly, but just know he and your mom are with each other again. Rip, Jimmy.

My uncle served as inspiration my whole life. I have fond memories of being a little boy, riding in his car. I remember the time when he sat me down at our grandparents house to tell me he and Linda were to be married. I thought that was a thoughtful thing to take the time to tell me. There are many more memories. I will miss our visits when we have come home. The great discussions were always inspiring to Anna and me.

So sorry to see this. Jim was a nice man. We used to work together when General Electric bought out RCA. Prayers for the family.
