Jimmy Washburn

Jimmy Washburn, 82, of Fort Worth, died Oct. 29, 2012.

The family will provide a memorial service 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at City View Community Church, 3800 Ram Blvd., in Mineral Wells.

He was born Dec. 14, 1929, in Bristow, Okla., to James and Pearl (Isbell) Washburn. Jimmy gave many years of his life to the military service and his country, eventually retiring from the Air Force with over 23 years of service. He loved every form of sports including softball, football and golf, whether watching them or participating in them. The University of Oklahoma Sooners was his favorite team to root for. He was an avid reader of war and western novels, especially Louis Lamour. Jimmy also found time to care for animals, which he loved dearly. Cats and dogs always had a welcome home with him and he couldn’t stand to see an animal mistreated. Jimmy had a special place in his heart for Big Brothers and Big Sisters; he used his degree in social work from the University of Texas-Arlington to guide and help many children in his lifetime.

Jimmy is survived by his sister, Mary Ellen Holder ,of Santa Fe, Texas; sister-in-law, Norma Smith, of Fort Worth; granddaughters, Jo Graham, Alicia Harrison and Amanda Smith; all of Mineral Wells; eight great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Jerry Washburn; wife, Joanne Vickroy Washburn; son, David Washburn; daughter, Sherrill Harrison; grandson, Jimmy Harrison Jr.; and great-granddaughter, Beth Ann Harrison.
