Jimmie was an unstoppable force for UPS, and a welcome face to customer’s while making deliveries. Never missing a day of work, Jimmie retired from UPS after 37 years of service. He will be remembered for his love of the game of baseball. He was an avid Cubs fan and just couldn’t stop smiling after their long, awaited World Series win in 2016. Jimmie was a country music fan that would sing along with all his favorite songs. He could be found enjoying his time spent outdoors while grilling mouthwatering meals for family and friends. Jimmie loved to root on and was a faithful fan to his favorite football team the Dallas Cowboys. Jimmie was an unforgettable example of working hard, helping others, and always being there for his family.
