Jimmy is preceded in death by his mother Connie Workman Helton and his Grandparents Burns & Nova Workman, and Grandmother Roxie Villers. Jimmy worked as a Diesel Mechanic (ASE certified) for many years, he was also a handy man and could fix anything you threw in front of him. His greatest past times included, fishing, any type of water sports, riding a motorcycle or fixing them up, as well as going to the gun range with family and friends. He was a die hard fan of U of M football and the Detroit lions. Jimmy was taken too soon but we appreciate all the time we had with him, he will be greatly missed by many friends and family. As Jimmy wished, there will be a private burial in Alan, KY. As things are opening up we will give further details about a celebration of life for friends and family in Michigan.
