Believe he was a long time boater too. Had something like a 70 footer cruiser. Have to try and look it up.

Bigget then I thought:

".....a Bahamian cruise aboard Dean's 110-foot yacht, the Big Bad John. Decked out in teak, with white carpeting (no shoes allowed on board), the boat has six bedrooms, five baths (some with gold-plated fixtures), a main salon with sectional sofas, a gourmet chef and a crew of two. "

I met the man several times in my life, when I was in my early 20's he came to my parking lot for my services. Once I was able to put the name to the face he was as much a regular guy as one could imagine. He loved the idea that a youngster from the heart of the city knew who he was.

A down home gentleman if you ask me, sorry to see him go!

My mom and dad met him once on the boat and said he was really a nice guy.

When I sold my boat on May 14, we took a spin down the James from the ramp and turned around and rode up to Jimmy's home - new owner's wife took a pick from the boat of Jimmy's place and called her daughter to tell her where she was!

A few years ago, he kept a couple of boats out front - a fairly large "yacht" and, I think, a deckboat? They were not there when we passed on the 14th.

I think the property was in his wife's family - Donna Mead - and they had done a lot of refurb and additions to the place over the years.

He was a good man and did a lot for the community. At one time I remember him giving a new car each year to the top graduating student at the local high school.

RIP, Jimmy.

Regards,

I saw him many times at the Bull Pen Lounge which was below the Stockyard in Nashville during the 80's. He was there to see Donna Mead sing with the house band.

Big Bad John would always stop in St. Augustine and dock at the City Marina on it's way South every fall for warmer winter grounds...

I'd still be single (and there wouldn't be any daughter) if she wasn't so easily impressed!
