Unexpectedly Jimmy passed away in the early morning hours of September 17, 2013. Jimmy was born and raised in Bakersfield. In his early years Jimmy enjoyed working his way up the ranks of Scouting, playing BSWLL 1987-1991 and being in a pee-wee bowling league. Jimmy graduated from Bakersfield High School. Jimmy overcame many obstacles from the time he was born. With health issues and the death of his mother, Jimmy never wavered. Jimmy had an amazing amount of perseverance and never let his spirit be broken. Jimmy was an amazing man with a personality that would nurture life long friendships. Jimmy most enjoyed being a faithful Giants fan and hitting the pavement with his skateboard. Jimmy's greatest accomplishment was in the raising of his daughter, Sidney. She was his pride and joy. Jimmy is preceded in death by his mother, Linda Hathaway; grandparents, Jim and Dorothy Hathaway; grandmother, Barbara Tikulski; and grandfather, George Absher. He is survived by his father, James; step-mother, Robin; grandmothers, Kathy Absher and Neta Hathaway; grandpa, Stu; his sisters/best friends, Allie Hathaway (Brandon), Sumner Cruz (Arturo), Ciera, and Carsyn; nieces, Harmonie and Patricia; and nephews, Arturo and Boston. We love and miss you Jimmy. For additional information, please contact Basham Funeral Care at 873-8200. Basham Funeral Care www.bakersfield.com/obits
