Jimmy was born in Leflore, OK in 1942 to Walter and Lucille Kitchens. They moved to Dinuba, CA when Jimmy was 5 years old, where he graduated from Dinuba High School. Jimmy was an EMT, Firefighter, printer and business owner. He was probably most proud of his 20+ years of military service. Jimmy was a member of the Kiwanis Int. and loves NASCAR, gardening, his children, grandchildren and dreaming of how he would spend the $176 million he was going to win in the lottery one day.
Jimmy is preceded in death by his father, Walter.
Jimmy is survived by his mother, Lucille; his wife of almost 49 years, Cheryl of Fallon; his daughter, Deborah (Dean) Hayley; daughter, Lisa (Jay) Alford; daughter, Pamela (Steven) Tognoli; his brother, Jerry; sister, Regina Marable and Kay Giannandrea; grandchildren, Madison, Spencer, Stephen, Breanna and Kascia; and several nieces and nephews.
Jimmy will be remembered for his quick wit, ability to make friends where ever he went and the twinkle in his eyes when his laughter rang out across a room. He will be loved and missed for an eternity.
Arrangements are with the Smith Family Funeral Home & Crematory in Fallon (775) 423-2255.
