My sincere condolences to Jimmy and his family. He will live in my memory as a happy, fun, chubby first and second grade elementary school classmate with a great smile. At a fifty-year Ardmore High School reunion in 2013 (Jimmy always identified himself with and was happily accepted by our class even though he graduated from Ringling) I had a long and wonderful visit with him. I remember seeing then, now in his 6o’s, that same chubby face and friendly smile of elementary school. It is a memory to cherish. Fred Whitehurst Durango, Colorado

I was in first grade with Jimmy in Mrs Ross class. We considered him a part of our AHS Class of 63. He attended most of our reunions. He always enjoyed them and we loved seeing him. We love you Jimmy! Judy Gardner Smith
