Jimmy was born on January 2, 1949, in Little Rock, Arkansas, to Bobby Garza and Josephine Prudhomme. He passed away on Thursday, April 27, 2023, in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Jimmy was a skilled carpenter for the entirety of his life and was known for his ability to build anything out of wood, even your dream home. He was a hard worker and dedicated to his family and taking care of them. Though he seemed tough at times, he would do or give anything for his family and the ones he cared for. When Jimmy wasn’t hard at work, he knew how to cut loose. He was the life of the party and was never quick to push guests out of his home. Jimmy would often ask, “You know who I am?” and with his great sense of humor and his infectious laugh, you did. Jimmy also enjoyed playing pool, throwing darts, and horseshoes while listening to classic rock. He will be greatly missed by all that know him.
Jimmy is preceded in death by his parents; son, Victor Garza; brothers, Leon Garza, Joseph Garza, Earnest Garza: sisters, Lilly Patterson, Angela Hillard, Bobbie Jean Garza, Leona Bay, and Thelma “Cookie” Louis. He is survived by his sons, Jimmy Garza, Jr., and Bobby Joe Garza; brother, Bernest Garza; sisters, Wallace Jiminez, Delores Gibson, and Bernice Garza; 12 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Honoring Jimmy as pallbearers will be Allen Ashley, Chase Coleman, Jerry Coleman, Bobby Garza, Daniel Garza, Jimmy Garza, Jr., and Matthew Garza.
