Jimmy proudly served in the United States Navy as a petty officer before embarking on a 40+ year career with the Lembo family in the machinery industry.
He loved the Dallas Cowboys, the Atlanta Braves, golf, spending time at the casino, and most of all, a good joke.
Jimmy was an extraordinary father, devoted husband, doting grandfather, adoring brother, fun-loving uncle, loyal employee, and a friend to all. His laugh will be sorely missed.
