If you knew Jimmy, you knew two things; he was a “True Blue” University of Kentucky fan and he liked to eat. A day never went by that he didn’t have on something UK, and while he wore his blue, he would enjoy a good hotdog and popcorn. Jimmy was a veteran of the United States Army, later working as Sales Manager at Worldwide Equipment where he retired after 30+ years. He will be sorely missed by his family and all those who were blessed to have known him.

Left to mourn his passing, Jimmy is survived by his children Kevin (Connie) Baker of Harrogate, TN., and Misty (Bryan) Owens of Middlesboro, KY., his 4 grandchildren Hagen and Kailey Owens of Middlesboro, KY., and Caleb and Cole Baker of Harrogate, TN. Other survivors include his brother and best friend, Billy Ray Baker of Middlesboro, KY., and baby sister Carolyn Ann Taylor of Ferndale, KY., as well as a host of many nieces, nephews, family and friends who will miss him greatly.
