In Loving Memory of Our Friend Jimmy Detterline......

Hi all.....

Yesterday, Brian got news that his very good friend Jimmy had passed away. This is an EXTREMELY sad time for our family. We all loved Jimmy to no end. He had the biggest heart, the BEST sense of HUMOR....and he was just an amazing man to our family and to others that knew him.

He bowled with Brian, and last night our friends Mitch and Angela (who were also friends with Jimmy) came over and with a little help from my brother Steve....we were able to get some photos off of a bowling tournament DVD that Brian and Jimmy had been in together.

I remember when I first met Jimmy. He had a smile that lit up a ROOM! He always had a laugh on his lips and a funny story to share!!! Here I was, Brian's "new" girlfriend....and he treated me and Adam like part of the family. He gave Adam his first softball and glove, and would go into the softball fields and practice with him. He WOULD SPOIL Adam too!!! LOL If there was a video game or one of those toy claw machines within 20 feet of Jimmy and Adam.....Jimmy would shove $5.00 at Adam and tell him to go have some FUN! :):):):):)

Here is the information that I found on Jimmy this morning (with the help of Angela and Mitch...thanks guys!) in the local paper.........

"Detterline, Jimmy Ray
age 50 of Buckeye, AZ, left this world at his home on January 6, 2009, following a courageous battle with Congestive Heart Failure, and COPD. Jimmy was born in San Jose, CA, October 11, 1958 to Ray Detterline and the late Sharon Detterline Lincoln. Jimmy loved and was fantastic at all sports. He played baseball, bowled, fished, and hunted. He bowled a perfect 300 game and an 800 series. He got a bull elk on his first outing last year. Jimmy loved all children; he enjoyed teaching and playing sports with them especially all his nieces and nephews. Jimmy leaves behind his spiritual soul mate, Paulette Sisson; his father, Ray Detterline; stepmother, Rose Detterline; three sisters, Becky Ricci Castro of Fremont, CA, Donna James of Concordia, KS, and Dori Stefani of Ben Lomond, CA. He also leaves behind two sons, Christopher and Jonathan, and two daughters, Noel and Tiffany."

We love and MISS you Jimmy.....Rest in Peace...........
