Reba and I went to Los Angles to visit Uncle Jay, Jimmy Derrell, and Aunt Sis. While there we met Jimmy Hicks at his ship. He told us about his boat and escapades. I was impressed by the sailor suit and how each item had a use and a function besides being a piece of clothing. He impressed me years later when he showed me everything he carried while working at the police department. I always looked up to my cousin who always seemed bigger than life to me.

Jimbo was a bigger-than-life sailor to me. I never thought about him being my cousin because of the age difference. He was always laughing and picking on us kids. He will be sorely missed.

Prayers to his nephews who he loved n family. I also worked with Jim at police station. I remember 2 stories he told and he had newspaper clipping to back them up. 1 was he came into this world in back seat of a car as it turned south at 3rd and main. 2 was when he served in navy and was shot in head, he said he was hard headed and the bullet went under skin but traveled over his skull. Take care friend keep smiling!!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I worked with Jim at the Police Department back in the late 70's and early 80's. He was a good police officer. Jim not only had a big physical presence, he also had a big personality. Jim always had a smile on his face. He always had a joke or a story to tell., which brought laughter to those around him. In more recent years, I often saw Jim at the VA. He was always the same person that I had known years ago. You will be missed, my friend. Tell Troy hello and we'll be seeing each other again one day. Pat
