Having known Jimmy for 20+ yrs, I can say that he was a very unique and special man. Many of my first dealings with him were on a business level where Jimmy was one of a kind but, the more I grew to know him on a personal level over the years, I can say his world truly revolved around his family. Gonna miss you around Jimmy,see you on the other side! Keith Carraway, April 9, 2015 So long to Jimmy Wayne. A good friend, classmate and all around good guy. May God bless Mary Ann, Larry and Alechia and give you comfort and strength. Bob Vandagriff, March 28, 2015 To know Jimmy Anderson is to know about a guy who lived the American Dream, Texas native who gave it all for his family. A quiet steadfast man who was always making people smile. I loved talking to this man, he had a quiet reserved way about himself. He would say things that made me laugh and say things that would make you feel good about your friendship one had with this man. God Bless you Jimmy, we will miss you greatly but will see you someday again when we meet the Lord. Ron King, March 7, 2015 Only knew Jimmy for a short time through our children in the Trenton school. He was a fine man. He was so kind and honest. My children, David & Barbara remember him too as a very nice man and wonderful father to Larry and Alesha. Floyd & Judy DeBurger, March 6, 2015 Alechia, Russell and family, We are so sorry for your loss. From all accounts he was a very nice man and will be missed greatly. Cling to the wonderful memories. Prayers for comfort. Chuck and Cheryl Cheryl Cox, March 6, 2015
