Jimmy worked for Southern Frozen Foods and drove tour buses for Perry Bus Line. He was medically retired in the early seventies. -Following his wife's retirement from Perry High School in 1991, they spent their time developing 37 acres in Peach County along Mossy Creek into gardens filled with splendid azaleas, camellias, day lilies and various other plants.
