Jimmy was born November 15,1951 in Atlanta, Ga. In his early years his mentor in life was his father-in-law, George Manderson, now deceased. He loved Jimmy dearly as a son. He taught him many things – fishing, hunting, growing a garden, carpentry, how to overcome a trouble childhood and grow into manhood. Jimmy was an excellent mechanic all of his life. He had customers from all over who only trusted him with their cars. He loved southern food, banana sandwiches, banana pudding with coffee, racing, living his life and having a good time. Later in life he picked up the nickname The Breeze, it suited him. He had a great sense of humor.

Jimmy always carried a gas can, tools, and jumper cables in his vehicle. He repaired many cars and trucks for people he never knew who were broke down on the side of the road.

Jimmy taught his daughter, Kandi, everything he knew about cars and how to work on them. He loved sitting with both of his daughters drinking a cup of coffee and having great conversations.

A celebration of Jimmy’s life will be on July 28 at 5pm at his daughter, Kandi’s, lake house at 195 Wilson Rd Jackson, Ga 30233. All friends and family are invited.

In lieu of flowers, Jimmy would have wanted you to tune up your car and check the air pressure in your tires.
