Mr. Moreland was born April 18, 1931, in Amory, Mississippi. He was a graduate of Amory High School and attended Louisiana State University on a music scholarship. In 1962, Mr. Moreland opened the first franchise of Jack's Hamburgers at the corner of 19th Street and Quintard Avenue in Anniston. From there, he went on to become President and CEO of Jack's Hamburgers, Inc. In 1978, Mr. Moreland purchased his first Long John Silver's Franchise on the corner of 6th Street and Quintard Avenue. He went on to own and operate twelve Long John Silver's franchises throughout Alabama and Mississippi. Jimmy won numerous awards throughout his career, including the "Restaurateur of the Year" by the Alabama Restaurant Association in 2006, as well as, the "Franchisee of the Year" award from Long John Silver's in 1989. Jimmy and Rhunette were members of Mountain Brook Baptist Church. He was an exemplary husband and father, always putting his family first over any of his other endeavors. His sense of humor was remarkable and his laughter was contagious. He will be cherished in memory by everyone whose lives he touched. The family thanks every one of the compassionate caregivers at Regency Retirement Village in Birmingham, and the incomparable care he received from Comfort Care Hospice.
