Jimmy lived most of his life in Holland, Texas were he raised his children, watched his grandchildren grow up and spent time with his family. Jimmy retired after 45+ years of truck driving with McLane’s, Western Auto, Sherwin Williams and as an independent driver. He traveled all over the US and enjoyed his many adventures.
