James "Jimmy" Carlisle

July 7, 1958 — June 1, 2021

James “Jimmy” Albert Carlisle, age 62, of Prentiss, MS left his earthly home Monday, June 1, 2021. Graveside services with Military Honors for Mr. Carlisle will be held at 1:00 PM on Saturday, June 12, 2021 at Whitesand Cemetery. Reverend Eddie Myers will officiate. Saulters-Moore Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. James was born on July 7, 1958 in Hattiesburg, MS to Lilly Mae Gatwood-Earley and Clarence W. Carlisle and spent a large majority of his life, in and around Hattiesburg with his mother, step-father, Joe Earley, brothers and sisters. Jimmy was passionate about his family, life, gardening, music and animals. Family meant the world to him and he kept in touch regularly, whether it was to just say “Hey, I love you” or check on everyone’s yards and plants. He was a fun-loving character, always ready to share his smile, huge heart and gardening tips. James was enlisted in the US Military from June 4, 1976 to December 3, 1979 where he served as a Percussion Player for the Military Band. James is preceded in death by his mother, father, step-father, brother, Phillip and sisters, Janie and Becky.
