Jimmy was very fond of sports and had a natural talent for baseball, football, and golf. He loved to bowl and shoot pool and enjoyed watching football, boxing, and horseracing. He had an infectious smile and an outrageous laugh. He lived life with a “go hard or go home” attitude and had a great respect for humor and living his life his own way. He loved all types of music and livened up the room with his unforgettable dance moves.
