smiling down on us always

This online memorial was created in loving memory of Jimmy Simcox, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. Please sign Jimmy's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember Jimmy forever.

In honor of Jimmy's Life This memorial has been created! On May 20th, 2010 it will be one year since he was taken from us so unexpectedly.  Although I know he is looking down and watching us all with a smile...wondering "why are you all being so ridicualous?" he is missed more and more every day.  To have known Jimmy was to have loved him.  He was the kind of person that you always wanted to be around, always making you laugh with some stupid prank or always lifting your spirits with his words of wisdom.....Jimmy's spirit was and always will be a part of all of us!  To some of us he was a Son, to some of us he was a sibling.....a nephew....grandson.....or a cousin, but to every single one of us he was a friend~Even if you just met him for a moment,,,he impacted your life somehow....His love for life was amazing and he lived it like most of us wish we could....He enjoyed every day like there was no tomorrow....and he made sure that you knew he loved you! His passion for sports was almost as strong as his passion for people.  He was an avid Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles Fan....and he would challenge anyone who wasn't! Jim had a heart like no one I know...He would tell you how he felt right from the start...even if he thought you were a bum..., but he would have done ANYTHING for anyone! The love he had for his home town and the people there will live on forever....His love for his extended "Preferred" family will never die and all of us who knew the kind of person Jimmy was will make sure that he lives forever in all of us (I promise you this)......Someone he was extremely close to once said "Jimmy taught me to always help people when they need it".......that was who Jim was! WE WILL NEVER FORGET~Unitl we meet again Jimmy.....we will keep your legacy alive and your love in our hearts~we miss you~    DON'T FORGET TO VISIT JIMMY'S GUESTBOOK WHERE YOU CAN LEAVE A MEMORY OR A THOUGHT OR JUST TALK TO HIM IF YOU LIKE...............

 

Mom and Dad at the Scholarship event....you would have been SO proud~

In order to keep Jimmy's passion for people alive, we have started a foundation in his name to help give back to the children of the community where he grews up and love so much. 

The foundation's mission is to give back to the children of Wildwood New Jersey.  Every year a Scholarship will be given in Jimmy's memory to a young college bound athlete from Wildwood High School.  Our long term goal is to ultimately give back to these kids in as many different ways as possible for many years to come.  We are hoping to help give kids simple things like a warm coat or eyeglasses, or really whatever may be needed.  We are also hoping to be able to donate things such as athletic equiptment to the Wildwood schools in Jimmy's name.  Jimmy touched many lives, but nowhere did he touch lives like he did throughout Wildwood High School and the amazing community where he grew up.  This foundation will allow Jimmy to keep on touching the live's of young people even after his was cut too short!
