Jimmy worked for Mrs. Baird’s Bread for 23 years. He was a devoted father and husband. When James Allen was a baby, we would meet Jimmy at the park in League City on his route and he would give James Allen something from his truck every day. James Allen was devoted and loved his father very much. The both of them would go to junk yards, and work on his car and truck.

Jimmy will be buried as a Mrs. Baird Man with the clothes he use to wear.
