Jimmy Cary Culpepper, 61, passed away on January 7, 2017 at his home in Scurry, Texas.
Jimmy graduated from Bryan Adams HS in Dallas, Texas in 1973 and joined the Army that Fall. He served in the US Army for two years to return home where he then acquired his BS in Political Science. He followed his calling and returned to the Army as a Lieutenant, later retiring as a Captian from Fort Benning. He loved reading, learning and traveling and covered most of the US working for years as a Computer Technician for a Dallas based firm. After all his traveling, he settled down in the Kaufman area where he lived until his passing.
Jimmy will be remembered with his infectious smile and quick wit by his many friends from all walks of life. He loved people and enjoyed spending time with friends any time he could. He could be found with a beer in his hand and a smile on his face, surrounded by those he loved and we know that is where he will forever be.
He had a passion for motorcycles and the outdoors including gardening and harvesting grapes for his own homemade wine. He followed in his mother’s footsteps and loved crocheting, making many items of love for family and friends throughout the years. He will be missed by all that knew him.
