In addition to many, many positive moments over the years, Jimmy and Marcia Sue endured the unimaginable loss of two children in seperate automobile accidents in the 1980s, they were strengthened by each other and the confidence of reuniting with them. Jimmy was a hard worker all of his life and was a successful entrepreneur, setting a great example for his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.  After years as a construction contractor in the local community and along the Gulf Coast, Jimmy and Marcia Sue founded J&J’s Supermarket on Highway 35 in Bassfield. He poured many years of hard work and love into the business. Now operated by their son, Gary and granddaughter, Megan.

Jimmy is survived by his wife of 60 years, Marcia Sue; his son, Gary (Virginia); grandchildren, Megan, Melanie and Garrett (Bobbi); great grandchildren, DJ, Keaton and Kennedy; brother-in-law’s; sister-in-law’s; nieces and nephews who will miss his pointy wit and sense of humor.
