Born in 1928 in Moab, Jimmy graduated at Grand County High School in 1946. Self-taught in geology, he saw success from the 1950’s to 2008 in the uranium business. His love of country, the constitution and Moab brought him to loyally serve as county commissioner for 12 years.
Jimmy was passionate about God, family, music, church, fly fishing , and chocolate . He sang for Moab events such as weddings and funerals for over 60 years. As a member of the Community Church you would see him singing in the choir for about 50 years.
The first of many children was named Mike and his mother was Marjorie Smith. He married Kit England in 1957 and adopted her three children Larry, Kevin, and Laurelei. Together they welcomed Wendy in 1959. He married Dorothy Knitig in 1973 and raised her three children Marcia, Janice, and Shelly. Their marriage continued until his passing.
Jimmy had an abundance of enthusiasm, wit, and unconditional love. When you finished speaking with him that energy stayed with you for hours, and you knew he passed on the love. He will forever be remembered by his nieces, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and friends.

|They Live On
Those we love remain with us
For love itself
Cherished memories never fade
Because one loved
Those we love can never be
More than a thought
For as long as there’s a memory,
on within our heart.
