Kathy and family, I am so sorry to hear about Jimmy. Just a few days ago I came across his Facebook page and was thinking about the kids when babysat for them. In Jimmys photos I could still see that little silly boy and his sweet smile and laugh and it made me smile and then to see this today. I’m so sorry and thinking of you during this difficult time. RIP Jimmy ❤️

I always appreciated how much Jimmy loved Kristen, his step-daughter. He was excited to become a grandfather when Kristen had Ellie. God bless and provide peace and comfort to the family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

We are so sorry for the loss of your Father Kelsi and the loss of such a great guy. I can remember when he went to school in Homer and would stay at the house with Jimmy (Sparks). Know that we are here for you all. R.I.P.Jimmy
