Jimbo was a graduate of Barrackville High School and Barber College in Huntington. He worked at Westinghouse and North American Philips. He was a member of the State Championship Basketball team at Barrackville High School. He was a star pitcher growing up and was honored to tryout for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Being a barber by trade, many of the children in the area got their haircuts at his shop on Pike Street. The famous “flat top” was the rage at the time.  Jimbo coached many youth baseball, basketball and football teams while his sons were growing up. For years he would frequent the “Diary Mart” for his power ball tickets in his quest to hit the lotto.

In accordance with Jimbo’s wishes, he will be cremated.
