James O’Neal Durden
Born at approximately 130 a.m. July 2, 1954 the only son of Aubrey S. and Angel L. Durden. Jimmy was called home at approximately 130 a.m. September 8, 2021 after suffering many health issues.
He was a son, a brother, a husband, an uncle and great uncle. He was loved and adored by his family and many friends and he never met a stranger. Jimmy loved to fish, play golf, play his guitar and sing but most of all he loved animals. His dogs were his children and he loved them like they were human.
Jimmy is survived by his mother Angel Durden, his wife Carol Pratt Durden, four sisters Connie Bernard (Leonard), Gwen Lane (Bob), Debbie Baxley (Mark) and Pat (Trish) Durden, Sister-in-law Mary Pratt Homschek (Alan), a multitude of nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews, and his three dogs Patches, Max and Peanut.
Jimmy is predeceased by his father Aubrey Durden, nephew Brian Montgomery, his father-in-law (Dudley Pratt), mother-in-law (Hermine Bandion) and brother-in-law (James Pratt).
In his final earthly hours he tried talking with family, tapped his foot to music his wife played for him and told everyone he spoke with that he loved them. At 115 a.m. we all told him to tell Daddy and Brian hello and sent them our love. At approximately 130 a.m. he drew his final breath and gained his angel’s wings which as devilish as he could be he deserved them.Print Obituary & Condolences
