Jimmy was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer in February of 2017 and finished his fight surrounded by his family after 31 months of truly inspiring determination on August 25, 2019.
Throughout his life Jimmy had a great love of traveling, and loved going on vacations with Beverly to new and exciting places. He also had a great love of food and often joked that a meal wasn’t worth eating unless you wore a little bit of it home. An incorrigible cut-up Jimmy loved to joke, be it making funny voices, playfully heckling family and friends, or regaling anyone who would listen with fantastic stories of ghosts or tales of the fearsome Green-eyed Snolygaster, while sitting around a campfire. Above all Jimmy was a family man, he was enormously proud of the legacy that he and Beverly built together, and those of that legacy will miss him everyday for the rest of their lives.
