Jimmy Duran(1948-2013)

Jimmy Duran entered into heavens gates on October 14, 2013 at the age of 65 years old. He was a long time resident of Hanford, CA. He was born in Texas to Santiago and Pauline Duran.
Jimmy was a firm believer in hard working and never believed in a day off. From mechanic work to landscaping, construction to a helping hand, he was always committed in a good days work. Never did he let anyone's smile fade to a frown. He would give the last dime he had to save a soul.
He is survived by his daughter Nikki Duran, grandson Jayden Lee Williams and a son Jimmy Duran Jr. He also leaves behind his two sisters; Eva Kwolek and Jessie Perez, and a close brother Manuel Urias and many nieces, nephews, several great-nieces and great-nephews.
There will be a mass of Christian Burial on Friday, October 18, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, burial to follow at Calvary Cemetery.
Any donations for funeral expenses can be made with Jimmy's daughter Nikki.
Arrangements under the direction of Whitehurst-McNamara Funeral Service.
