Ronnie McCutcheon says:
Jimmy, or "Pa", as I always called him, was one of the kindest people I have ever known. We remained friends through all of lifes ups and downs. Always eager to help or, if you were down, always had a joke or a smile. There are not many men like him left in this world and I have lost a true friend. We use to pull pranks on the kids. He and I dreamed up a couple real doozies!! All my kids, Chase, Kayla, Jeffrey and Taylor will always remember the "Beechgrove Beast" at the halloween bonfire we did each year. Jimmy told the kids he had to go to work and snuck off and dressed up in a white "sasquatch" suit. I told this fantastic story Jimmy and I made up. Long story short, We scared the crap outa all the kids. They loved it (once they realized it was a prank). What a hard working man he was. Jimmy, your wisdom and friendship will be terribly missed my friend. May God above wrap you in His loving embrace and welcome you home good and faithful servant. I love you Pa. I will see you on Gods golden shores my dear friend.

Tonia Mccutcheon says:
I will greatly miss you always daddy. You helped everyone and you never knew a stranger. I’m glad I have the memories I have of you the last four years. I still can’t believe you are gone. You always had a smile on your face and some new prank up your sleeve. You brought joy to everyone around you. You were the hardest working person and you loved your family and friends not to mention Randy and Tiger. God gained an angel for sure Sunday. I will never forget you and the great times we had. I will see you again someday. Go rest high on that mountain daddy. I love you very much.
