He was an avid sports fan his favorite team was the Texans. On game days they would put on their Texans’ gear decorate the room with all the Texans memorabilia and prepared their game day snacks for their private tail gate party with Kevin of course. They would all have fun during the games.
He also loved college football and would watch as many games as he could find often at the same time. He always rooted for the Texas teams. He kept up with the University of Houston and would notify his mother in law who was also a Cougar fan of the date, time and channel of each game.
Jimmy was a kind and loyal Christian man and will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
