Memories Timeline


  1. I had known Jimmy throughout High School and beyond when he worked for the DPW. He always seemed jovial to me.
    He didn't get much of a retirement and that's too bad. He was a hard worker.

    Haven't seen him for a while but Rest in Peace my man!

    Condolences to his family.
