James "Jimmy" Anthony Guillot
Austin - James "Jimmy" Anthony Guillot was born August 30, 1955 in New Orleans, LA and passed May 28, 2021 in Austin, TX.
Growing up in Louisiana, Jimmy loved days hanging out with grandparents and hunting and fishing with his nephews. He was awarded a scholarship to play football for Louisiana State University (LSU). Jimmy graduated from LSU with a degree in accounting and had a successful career as a CPA in both Louisiana and Texas.
Jimmy was known for his love of LSU football, photography, and smoking briskets for his family and friends. He loved his LSU football but happily became a Longhorn fan when he met his wife Sita. Anyone that knew Jimmy would be impressed by his memory to recall football stats. His love of photography meant trips, parties, weddings or just a simple dinner with family and friends were always documented in a special way. We will always be grateful for the memories he created with his camera. Another love of Jimmy was smoking briskets, ribs, and all types of barbeque for his friends and family. Seeing the people he loved enjoying his barbeque made him very happy.
Jimmy is preceded in death by his parents, Sanford Joseph Guillot and Dora Giroir Guillot, and by his nephew John Gordon and niece Michelle Gordon. He is survived by his beloved wife Sita Cilfone Guillot, nephew Patrick Gordon, siblings, and family members. Please join us for a memorial service, Thursday, June 10, 2021, 11:00AM - 3:00PM at The County Line on the Lake, 5204 FM 2222, Austin, Texas.
