My memories of Mr. Jimenez that will always stay in my mind at 9 years old is that when he would come home I guest from work and I would be playing outside and I would see this handsome man through my nine years old eyes and he would have this beautiful smile and it always made me feel happy inside. He would say hello and I would smile and say hello too. Never did I see him angry. I'm 60 years old and still I remember his smile. Through the eyes of a nine years old. Rest in Peace I will always remember your kindness and your beautiful smile.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time of sorrow.

We are saddened by the passing of Mr. Evaristo Jimenez, Sr.
Our Condolences and sympathy are especially given to his wife who spent many wonderful years with him, Mrs. Filomena Morales Jimenez. Men of his generation have earned the respect to be called Mr. and Sir, which I personally always give.
He was/is one of the last Elders of a fraternity of men that held a code: honor, duty, and country, along with family and church. Rightfully, he was given a flag by his country for honorably serving during a turbulent time of our history.
It was noticeable by his smile and stature, that he respected his past, present, and what he could give to the future. One could also see this with the family foundation of Jim and Marta.
I have seen his masonry skills used firsthand when he was 70, while helping his son with work around his house on ladders above 20 feet. Looking at his work today, it still looks brand new!
I see his torch passed to his son, Evaristo Jimenez, Jr. always ready to help and assist neighbors with the art that has been past down to him by from his father.
Larissa and Javier, members of the next Jimenez generation, also have his pleasant smile and welcoming whenever you see them. At church, or in front of Jim's house, he would always give my mother-in-law a smile and greeting.
It has been an honor and privilege to have had an opportunity to have been around Mr. Evaristo Jimenez, Sr.
James Reives and Family
We are very sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Please accept our sympathy.
My deepest sympathy to all. I am saddened because the last of my uncles departed and went to heaven, and at the same time I know he is in a better place, with our Lord and united with his brothers and sisters. I know that my dad is happy to have his brother there with him so he can have someone to argue with, but above all with respect and lots of LOVE. Thank you Tio for always being an example to all of us and for always taking care of my dad. You will surely be missed. Till we meet again. God Bless
