Jimmie Lee Taylor

February 16, 1939 — June 22, 2024

Jimmie Lee Taylor, 85, of Gulfport, MS passed away on Saturday June 22, 2024 in Biloxi.

He was born in Damascus, GA. Jimmie retired from Sterling Drugs. He dedicated his life to serving his God Jehovah. Though he has been blind for the past 9 years, he enjoyed working with his hands. He had a kind heart and even though his illnesses gave him several difficult moments, he constantly spoke about the many happy memories he had with his family and friends. He is a longtime resident of the MS Gulf Coast and lived through many major hurricanes, most noteworthy was his time with Camille in 1969. He often shared his experience sitting on top of Gayfer’s at Edgewater Mall during the eye. He will be greatly missed and we all look forward to seeing him standing next to Jesus Christ and Jehovah in the new system.
