James King was born on January 17, 1957 in Memphis, Tennessee to Robert and Desiree King. Moved back to the King family home in Mississippi in 1962 and attended Kosciusko public school before enlisting in the army in 1973. Jimmy was self-employed most of his life. His hobbies included riding his Harley motorcycle while traveling cross country. He had 12 states left to visit to see all 50 states. He loved watching Jerod and Josie play college baseball and softball. He loved all his family, friends and loved leaving his marks on everyone that he met. His children, family and friends remember him as a kind, gentle, patient, and loving man who would give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it. Jimmy was an avid hunter and fisherman. His favorite hobby was riding his motorcycle with the wind in his face with his two loved ones, Jodi and Harley. At Jimmy’s request, there will not be a funeral or memorial service. In his final days and hours, he was surrounded by loved ones. In lieu of flowers, Jimmy requested that contributions be made to the Wounded Warriors Project. The family would like to thank professional caregivers: UMMC Cancer Institute, Dr. Kelly Wilkison, oncologist, and Sta-Home Hospice, Blake, Meagan, and Rick for their efforts, care and dedication. The services are in the care of Chancellor Funeral Home in Florence, MS
