He was born Jan. 22, 1938, in Vienna, Ga., to the late John Dees Brett Jr. and Myra Howard Brett.

He started his Civil Service career at the Marine Corps Supply Center in Albany, Ga., and after two years there he transferred to Eglin Air Force Base in 1962 and worked at Site A-19 for one year. Jimmie worked four years at Homestead Air Force Base with the Third Army when he was offered his job back at Site A-19. He had worked in Airborne Instrumentation and Preflight in Building 100 for many years before he retired. He was retired over 20 years and was lucky enough to enjoy every minute of it.
