James (Jimmy) made his journey to the Spirit World at his home in Gordon, NE on May 15, 2013 at the age of 49 years.
Jimmy was born on July 29, 1963 at the GordonMemorialHospital to Agnes Bird Head (No Leaf)-deceased and Noah No Leaf. He attended school there in Gordon, NE. Jimmy continued to make his home in Gordon where he could be close to his friends and family which he cared for more than anything.
Jimmy loved being around his family and friends, and spent his time helping them do whatever needed to be done whether it be mowing a lawn, working on a car, fixing a bicycle tire, or just simply helping where he could. Jimmy was the first to always have a joke, he loved to make people laugh. He shared his happiness with everybody there was never a person left out. Jimmy with his heart of gold would give the shirt off his back to help somebody even if it was a stranger. While spending time with Jimmy you might have heard an old country western song, have played a good game of horseshoes, or possibly even watched the playoffs with him. Jimmy was a long time horse shoe champion and would never turn down a game. He will be greatly missed by the many that he leaves behind to mourn him.
