On retirement he had achieved rank of E-7 SFC (Sergeant First Class). Jimmie was always known to us as “Uncle Super” because everything we suggested to him, his answer was always, “that’s super”. So “Uncle Super” he became! Uncle Super always had laughter in his mouth and love in his heart, and his presence with telling stories can never be duplicated. His everyday thought was always geared towards who he could help.
