Jimmie was born to Willie and Eula Jenkins on January 11, 1930, in Youngs Chapel community in Hokes Bluff, Etowah County, Ala. He and his family eventually settled in Alexandria. He left high school in his senior year to fight in the Korean Conflict. Upon returning home, he returned to school to get his diploma. He met his future wife and married Glenda on October 1, 1954, in Glencoe. To this union they had four children. Jimmie never met a stranger. He loved life and it showed in everything he did. He dedicated his life to Christ when he was about 24 and never turned his back on his faith. He was a lay minister of the Baptist faith. He loved to write and paint. When asked what kind of music he liked, "All Kinds." He was an avid Alabama fan and we asked that you wear Alabama colors to the funeral. Online Condolences at www.graybrownservice.com
