Jimmy grew up and went to school in Safford and in 1959, he joined the Army and was stationed in Frankford, Germany.

They would have been married for 53 years this year. Jimmy and Lillie were blessed with two sons during this time, Ruben Theodore and Jesse West.
Jimmy was not an idle man. He worked hard his entire life and also had many hobbies such as playing pool at the old pool hall on Main Street, fighting roosters, fishing, hunting, playing cards; in which he was always cheating but you could never catch him at it. He also made belt buckles, bridles and spurs.
Jimmy was a kind and loving man to all. He always had a good outlook on life no matter how rough his day was going. He was always ready to greet you with a smile and hoped your day was going well. The goodness he displayed in his life will be missed by all.
