I have known Jimmy since I started working at Frank Ix and Sons at the age of 18. Jimmy was a man of many talents and he would always greet you with a smile. Jimmy was my neighbor and he would always watch out for who came to my house and if he did not recognize the vehicle he would let me know. Jimmy was a great neighbor and friend. You will be missed my friend, fly high
