On Tuesday, November 5, 2019, Jimmy E. McDaniel, loving husband of Deborah (nee Lyles), passed away at age 69. He was surrounded by family and close friends, who were praying as he was ushered into heaven.

I am so sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing! I work at the bank, where he used to make the church's deposits. He was always pleasant and smiling! A pleasure to wait on. He had a lot of prayers going up for him, a few years ago, when he first got sick! Then the church changed banks and I did not see him again. But thought of him often, with a smile! He was a bright light on a dark day. My prayers and thoughts go out to his family and friends.

Rest In Peace, My Buddy, My Buddy! You fought the good fight, and stayed in touch as long as you could. At last you asked Deborah to call when you were too sick. I’ll remember your baseball days, your hustle and sportsmanship, and thanks for stopping by with Antoine on your motorcycle. Rest In Peace, My Buddy.
