November 20, 1942 - October 24, 2020
Jimmy Lee Hightower, of Terrell, passed away October 24, 2020. He was born November 20, 1942 in Pearly, Texas to Henry Tom and Grace Truman Wolfe Hightower, both of whom preceded him in death along with his son, Daryl Joe Hightower, siblings: Connie, Doris, Norman, Dorman and Joe Mac. Jimmy worked for, and retired from, Montgomery County where he had been a dedicated employee for many years. On Oct. 6, 2006, he married Marjorie and they spent many days making memories with each other and their families. After their move to Terrell, he then worked for Environmental Co-op for 10 years where he helped with the many community initiatives sponsored by the Co-op. Jimmy never met a stranger and could talk about anything with anyone. He was known as a big joker and making people smile and laugh was a special skill Jimmy had. A kid at heart, you “could not take him to Walmart at Christmas time because he would have to try out all the toys” and be the best and most fun quality control manager! Jimmy never spoke ill of anyone and his devotion and constant love for his family was very well known by all who met him. He was an amazing man who set a great example to his family to cherish every day and every person and they will each be proud to carry on Jimmy’s legacy. He is survived by his loving wife Marjorie Hightower; son. Tim Hightower and wife Teresa; daughters: Tammy McNutt and husband David and Ronda Ebert; stepsons: Greg Watson and wife Mary, Rodney Watson and wife Jennifer, Kendall Ray Watson and wife Raquel; 19 grandchildren, 24 great grandchildren as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and a host of friends. Funeral service will be 10:00 am Thursday, October 29, 2020 at Max Slayton Funerals and Cremations with interment to follow at Highland Memorial Gardens. Family will receive friends 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm Wednesday October 28 at the funeral home.
