Jimmie Dean Landreth, also known as “Tuffy” to those close to him, was called home on his 76th birthday, September 21, 2016. Although we are saddened, we are faithful God chose to bring Jim into this world and on this same day of his birth, God chose to bring him home.

  1. Although I didn’t know in person this fine gentleman. I am grateful for the way he treated the Corral family when they worked for him many years ago. He was a kind and true friend to all of them and I heard only good things about him as a boss and as a friend.

    There are no words that we can express to alleviate the sadness he leaves behind. We only wish that our Heavenly Father receives him in his bosom and gives him the peace that he deserves. With the faith as well that someday we will be all together in the presence of the Lord.

    Our deepest sympathies to the family and friends who loved him. Rest in peace “Mr. Jim”.

  2. Deana,
    What can I say? I wished I was there to hug you and try to comfort you. I love you and I am literally a phone call away. I miss you so. I will be praying for you.

  3. I knew Jimmie through my work, his Dr. would periodically send him to me for medical imaging. Over the years we were acquainted, I developed a genuine fondness for Jimmie, and I looked forward to our visits, even though the circumstances were less than ideal. He was such a nice guy, friendly, down to earth, a true gentleman. I’m saddened it’s over. Blessings to all his loved ones.
