James Kevin Stearrett , Jimmy or Jimbo to his family and friends, peacefully left this world and gained his heavenly wings on June 22, 2020 at the age of 56.
Jimmy fought a hard battle against cancer and he gave everything he had to that fight. Everyone who knew Jimmy called him a friend. Jimmy was loyal, kind, honest, and completely selfless. If you were blessed enough to know him, you could guarantee Jimmy would do anything to help anyone, no matter what it was or how difficult it appeared to be, he somehow always found a way. American Door and Glass was the company where Jimmy chose to give his loyalty to and spent all of his working days dedicated to his career there. He loved his job and took great pride in his ability and work while he was there. If ever there was a job to be done, Jimmy was always first to volunteer his time, his work, and anything to help others. Jimmy was kind to everyone and he never knew a stranger. The protective spirit that encompassed Jimmy was outstretched to each and every person he knew. Jimmy would do anything to protect his loved ones from suffering physically, mentally, or emotionally. Jimmy’s main desire was to ensure his loved ones always felt safe, happy and loved.
Jimmy was predeceased by his father, John Alvin Stearrett Sr.; mother Loretta Palmer Stearrett; brother Glen Aaron Stearrett; and sister-in-law Linda Stearrett. He is survived by his brothers and sister, Jack Stearrett Jr. (Mary), Edward Stearrett, David Stearrett, Diane S. Grossman (Mark) and Darrin Stearrett (Dana); his nieces and nephews, Krissy Stearrett, Jamie Stearrett, Laura Wynn (Daryl), John Stearrett, Eddie Stearrett Jr. (Crystal), Heather Wynn, Sarah Hoover (Thomas), Amanda Grossman, Brittany Gordon and Jacob Gordon; his great-nephews, Mason Gentry and Colton Hoover; his brothers-in-law, Tim Harris and Martin Wynn; along with many extended family and close friends.
Everyone who knew Jimmy loved him greatly and he in return loved them deeply. Jimmy impacted so many lives in so many ways and if you were lucky enough to know him you were blessed in some way or another. The family will receive friends for a Celebration of Jimmy’s Life at his sister Diane’s home in Chesterfield County where Jimmy resided prior to his passing. If there were three closing words to summarize Jimmy and all that he was and proved himself to be they would be: Integrity, Selfless, and Loved.
