James "Jimmy" Dale Dollar

Tallahassee - James Dale Dollar passed away peacefully on Monday, January 14th, 2019 at the age of 72. He was a resident of Tallahassee, Florida for over 70 years. He leaves behind his loving wife Shirley Autry Dollar and his beloved dog Sassy.

Jimmy was born in Bainbridge, Georgia on June 23rd, 1946 to Robert Ford and Sybil Haire Dollar. His family moved to Tallahassee when he was only 6 months old where Jimmy went on to graduate from Leon High School in 1964 then joined the United States Marine Corps Reserves.

Jimmy worked as a self-employed carpet-installer and loved to hunt and fish in his free time. But his true passion was as a wildlife artist. From water color painting to carving bows & arrows, Jimmy was an exceptional artist with several of his paintings having been featured in magazines such as Florida Wildlife, Turkey Call and Florida Sportsman. His hand-carved bows & arrows were sought by collectors around the country and included in several art galleries throughout North Florida. Additionally, twice he won the competition for the Florida Wildlife Commission's selection of the turkey-hunting licensure stamp design.

In addition to his wife, Jimmy is survived by his son, Dale Dollar (Lisa), his brother Bob Dollar (Rosey), godson Adam Thompson, niece Lisa Guthrie (Doug), nephew Trey Dollar (Cristy). He is preceded in death by his parents.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, January 16th from 6pm-8pm at Bevis Funeral Home at 200 John Knox Rd in Tallahassee. A memorial service to celebrate Jimmy's life will be held Thursday January 17th at 1:00 pm in the Bevis Funeral Home chapel followed by a brief graveside service at Tallahassee Memory Gardens on North Monroe St.
