Jimmy Owens, 71, of Baytown, Texas, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at his residence surrounded by his family.
Jimmy's greatest passion in life was his family. He had a gentle strength that could carry his loved ones through life's most trying storms. His very presence somehow made rough waters calm. From bouncing a baby on his arm while singing one of his favorite songs to breaking out his tools to help with any project his love of family was evident in all that he did.
Jimmy leaves behind a legacy of love that will never be forgotten by friends and family.
