Jimmy D. Folsom, 74, of Grand Ridge, Florida passed away peacefully on Monday September 6, 2021, at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital surrounded by family.
Jimmy was born June 2, 1947, to Ray and Mildred Folsom in Grand Ridge, Florida.
Jimmy was a retired Warden with the Department of Corrections. He enjoyed farming, hunting, and working. Most of all Jimmy loved and cherished his time with his family with all his heart.
Jimmy was a pure hearted man who would give the clothes off his own back to be sure his family and friends were nurtured and cared for. He was a hard-working man, who could outwork most young and old men, from a young age all the way to his untimely death. As well, Jimmy was Southern Baptist who strived to walk in the steps of Jesus daily. The world has lost a truly hard-working, loving, and God-fearing man that can never be replaced.
Jimmy was preceded in death by his mother, Mildred Folsom of Dellwood, FL; father, Ray Folsom of Grand Ridge, FL; brother, Jerry Folsom of Grand Ridge, FL; and sister, Sandra Folsom of Grand Ridge, FL
