Jimmy Lee Crow of Griffithville, Arkansas was born on October 19, 1951 to Branty and Barbara Crow. He left this world peacefully after a short battle with cancer on February 4, 2021 with his family by his side.
Jimmy was a great son, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He was truly loved by his family and friends and that love was always reciprocated back to the ones he cherished most.
Jimmy had several passions in life. He joined the army at the age of 18 and was proud to serve the country that he loved for 3 years. During this time of service, he met and fell in love with his soulmate, Sandy, and married her on June 17, 1972. After 49 1/2 years of marriage, she was still his world. They raised two beautiful children, Jammie Lynn Crow and Jimmy Lee Crow JR. He also played a large part in raising a bonus daughter, Sherri Tolentino. Jimmy became a journeyman painter and started his own company, Rainbow Painting and spent practically every dime he earned spoiling his family and giving them a fun and adventure filled life. As time passed, he gained a beautiful daughter-in-law, Marie who cherished him along with his many grandchildren and great-grand daughter. There was nothing more precious in his eyes than his beautiful wife, children, grandchildren, and great-granddaughter. He had two sisters, Mary Ann and Erma, that he adored and always kept an eye on, in return they always kept him laughing and shaking his head, He also had several nieces and nephews that he adored and was so very proud of. During the last couple years of his life, he found a new passion in iRacing. Jimmy and his son shared this passion.
