Jimmy Lee McBeath was born on April 8, 1960 to the late J.B.McBeath and Vennie McBeath. He departed his earthly life on April 24, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, R.L.McBeath, L.V.McBeath, Carl J. McBeath, Lavon McBeath, Marvin McBeath, Tommy, McBeath, and Willie B. McBeath; sisters, Betty A. McBeath, Bobbie A. McBeath, Diane McBeath, Etoy McBeath, and Willie E. McBeath.
Jimmy was a family man. He loved spending time with his family. No matter if he was sitting around "chewing the fat" (talking) at cookouts in Mississippi or on vacation being buried in the sand by his grandkids, he was always present and in the moment having a good ole' time. His personality was quiet and laid back, but he was never too quiet to laugh and joke around. He has a cool confidence about himself. In the Summertime, he would always have a pair of freshly starched and creased shorts, a collared shirt, and flip-flops with a tube of Chapstick in his pocket. Always so fresh.
Jimmy had a beautiful voice, he would effortlessly sing just about any song. He enjoyed listening to all genres of music. His favorite song as "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone" by the Temptations. Every time that song came on, Jimmy would sing along and do a little two-step every now and then when he really got into it. He loved the Dallas Cowboys. It didn't matter if they had a winning or losing season, he was guaranteed to say, "How Bout Dem Cowboys!"
On the weekends, Jimmy working in his yard and throwing some meat on the grill. Over the years, Jimmy collected a few nicknames such as Mac, Top Shelf, and Papi. He was loved by so many and truly enjoyed living life.
Jimmy served in the United States Army for a total of five years as a 44B Metal Worker. His last duty station was with the 598th Combat Support Division FORSCOM FC. While in the military he was awarded the Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, Army Good Conduct Medal and the Army Commendation Medal.
After returning home from the military, Jimmy became employed with the Yellow Freight Trucking Company where he retired after twenty-one years of service.
He leaves to cherish loving memories to his wife, Deneen McBeath of Acworth, Georgia; three children, Jakitta (Rodney) Sullivan of Birmingham, Alabama, Quenisha (Eric) Watson of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Timothy Pierce of Acworth, Georgia; five grandchildren, Jacob, Sean, Zoey, A'yanna and Asher; one brother, JOHNNY McBeath of Sebastopool, Mississippi; three sisters, Ernestine Tripplett of Carthage, Mississippi, Helen Smith of Philadeplhia, Mississippi, Brenda McBeath of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and a host of loving nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
