James Arthur “Jimmy” Sammons went into the arms of his heavenly father on Saturday, November 24, 2012 at the age of 46. He was the son of Luther Sammons and the late Bertha Caroline Sammons. He was preceded in death by his beloved grandson John V. Ryder Jr. “Johnny Blue”.
James went to heaven and left behind his soul mate and wife of 26 years, Lori L. Sammons. Jimmy is also survived by his four loving daughters, the keys to his heart and son-in-laws; Nicole “Nikki” and Dantae Ramirez, Rebecca “Becky” Naylor and Ervin Hardy, Jacquelynn “Jackie” Naylor and Roger Drinks, Victoria “Vikky” Sammons and Sergio Wilkerson; and a very special son, John V. Ryder Sr.
James also leaves behind his grandbabies, the joys of his life; Cameron, Micah, Darrius, Nevaeh, Marcus, Rafael, Alyssa, Gabriel, Devon, Olivia, Ervin and R. Jay.
Lost without their baby brother are his brother and sisters and their spouses; Luther A. and Anita Sammons, Wanda and Anthony Seeney, Shelia and Herbert Pierce, and Brenda Sammons. He also leaves behind his goddaughter, Ashley Pierce and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends too numerous to name.
He will be missed by his nearly 5,000 friends on Facebook where he posted almost daily, “words of inspiration” until he became too ill to do so.
Please come dressed warm and comfortable to his celebration of life service at Immanuel Union United Methodist Church in Cheswold, Delaware on Sunday, December 2, 2012 at 1pm. Burial will be private at the convenience of the family.
The family asks in lieu of flower donations be made to Torbert Funeral Chapel. Letters of condolence may be sent, and guestbook signed at torbertfuneral.com
