    Jimmy was a dear friend and unofficial member of the Babb family. He brought kindness and humor to our family in ways that can never be replaced. We shared numerous holidays, birthdays, tailgates, beach trips and other family gatherings over the years. Our family is stronger for his quiet examples of love. We are certain Jimmy also impacted the lives of many others through his work at the Simpsonville park and the lawn care business he owned. Jimmy will be deeply missed by many as we hold our memories close to our hearts!
