Jimmy was a consummate musician. With perfect pitch, he could play many instruments in his own wonderful way. He was involved in numerous bands and an outstanding array of top notch musicians with a wide following in Northeast Ohio.
As an instructor at Willow Music and later Joe's Music, both in Willoughby, he unselfishly nurtured the dreams and aspirations of many people of all ages. When he sang, he put everything he had in every note. He will always be remembered
for his beautiful smile, his warmth, and his complete loyalty as a friend.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Martha L. (Washington) Black.
