"Jimmy" or "Cowboy" as he was affectionately called, was a loving husband and caring father, grandfather and friend. He was a simple man who loved his family dearly. Jimmy enjoyed people and never met a stranger. With a witty personality, he had a nick-name for everybody he knew. Jimmy and Joanne were owners and operators of Wallace Starter and Generator. During this time, Jimmy worked hard and developed numerous friendships that lasted throughout his life. He also made sure he instilled his good work ethics in his girls. His passion was being outside and riding horses. Jimmy had a big heart and loving spirit about him that made it a pleasure to be around him. He will surely be missed and cherished memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
