Jimmy attended the Nottoway County Public Schools and was employed by J.D. Whitt Roofing, Paul D. Coleman, Norfolk and Southern Railroad and various companies. At an early age he was baptized and joined the Cedar Hill Baptist Church, under the pastoral leadership of Reverend Walter Prince. He trusted in the Lord and lived his life by faith.
Jimmy had “gifted hands” and many talents, if there was anything you needed repaired, he was the man. Jimmy enjoyed motorcyle riding, hunting, fishing, baseball, football, a die-hard “Redskins Fan.” He enjoyed spending time with family and friends. On a daily basis you would see him cruising through the town of Blackstone, checking out the community.
