Yesterday on September 26, 2017 we have lost a Husband, Father, Son, Brother, Papa, Uncle and friend. Jimmy Shipley has been batteling a sickness for quite some time now. Due to a blood clot in his lungs. As hard as the doctors tried to save him, the good Lord brought him home, where he is no longer in any pain or suffering. As many of you know, Jimmy had the biggest heart in the whole world. He could turn what you may feel your worst day ever, into your best. I have never met anyone who didnt get along with him. Jimmy was so passionate about his family, dirt car racing, NASCAR, but most importantly his grandbabies and his children.
Jimmy was so kind, and so sweet to everyone he ever met. He worked most of his career in truck driving and lumber yards. He was so passionate about his work and would have done anything for his co-workers, or for that matter anyone else.
As you all may know medical billing and funeral cost are pricely, as Jimmy does not have any insurance. Us as his family, are asking for any support or donations to help with the medical and funeral costs. Anything helps.
Jimmy Shipley will be layed to rest on Thursday October 5th, 2017. His viewing will be held from 1-4 pm immediately following his memorial service at Winkenhofer Pine Ridge Funeral Home
2950 North Cobb Parkway NW
Kennesaw, GA 30152
Also- as all of these costs are due at time of services, we would greatly ask that if you are able to help with any kind of donations they be sent no later than Monday October 2nd 2017, so we are able to get the funds on time for his services. If you would like to help out in any other way feel free to contact any of his family memebers.
Thank you all for your support and well wishes.
The Shipley Family
