Jimmie was loved by many. He was surrounded by his loved ones at his passing at 11:36 p.m., Jan 6, 2019, while listening to “Let It Be” by the Beatles. He had many passions in his life, but his three greatest were his family, his music and his country. He served in the US Army during the Vietnam era; stationed in both Germany and Killeen, Texas. Upon being honorably discharged he captained a shrimp boat for many years following in his father’s footsteps. He loved the ocean. He worked many years for the Department of transportation and also worked as an independent contractor upon his retirement. His love for music was evident throughout his life. From his first band, The Sunn to all the bands he played with to all the individuals he taught to play, he touched many lives. He was a fighter till the end. Always thinking of everyone else before himself.

    Our sincere condolences to the Altamirano family on the passing of Jimmy. Jimmy was a wonderful person who we were proud to call our friend. Although he suffered from this horrible disease, he always managed to keep a friendly smile. Many classmates and friends were so happy to have seen and talked to him at the Gathering of Eagles in December. He appeared cheerful and very pleasant, yet one could feel his pain. May God Bless and give strength to the family during this difficult time. Jimmy, you are now in Heaven with our Lord. No more pain, no more suffering. You will always be remembered.
