69 of Bradenton, formerly of Palmetto & Ellenton passed away peacefully at home on June 4, 2016. He was born on September 15, 1946 in Troy, Ohio. In 1951 he and his parents, Jack and Vi, moved to Snead Island. They then moved to Ellenton where he spent his childhood. Jayme graduated from Palmetto High School in 1965, attended MJC on a full baseball scholarship, where his pitching talent lead to many awards and championships. Instead of continung his baseball career, he chose to take over the family business, Curl Mobile Home Sales. He loved boating, fishing, traveling in his motorhome, and watching the Gators, retiring in 1994 to do much more of the same. He will be dearly missed not only for his stature and sense of humor, but for the stories he told in his deep trademark voice. Jayme was predeceased by his parents in 2011. He is survived by his loving wife Cathy; daughters Cristin Carter and Cindy Howerton; father-in-law Joe Fisher; mother-in-law Rose Fisher; brothers-in-law Tom (Kelly) and Joey Fisher; sister-in-law Christina Fisher; grandchildren Cash and Cara Carter, Cadie Graham and Ava Howerton; and his buddies Tebow and Special K. There will be a Gathering for friends and family on Saturday June 18, 2016 from 2-5 p.m. at Swordfish Grill in Cortez, FL. The 2 "BIG DOGS" Jay and Tank are back together again.
