Jimmy was a World War II veteran in the Philippines and served his country honorably. After the war he married Ruth Loiselle of Amesbury, his devoted and loving wife of 43 years. He spent his life working hard at the Bailey Company as a machine operator. He loved to cook and eat and spend time with family and friends in the backyard, tell stories, and laugh a lot. He was a devoted father, grandfather, uncle, brother and husband and will be greatly missed.
