Obituary for James "Jimmy" Daniel Gill, Jr.

Loving Father, Grandfather, and Brother.

James Daniel Gill Jr., known to his friends and family as “Jimmy”, passed away on January 11, 2019, at the age of 65.

A native of Solway, TN, Jim never met anyone who he didn’t consider his “buddy”. He was loved by all who met him and he never met a stranger. He loved riding around in his jeep and taking his loved ones to the Smoky Mountains. He played the drums in his high school band. He was an avid “tinkerer”, he loved technology, building, and inventing things in his workshop. He also loved racing and working on muscle cars.

Jimmy was a member of the Karns Church of Christ. He was born on October 23, 1953 in Knoxville, TN. Jim graduated in the class of 1972 at Karns High School and went on to Tennessee Technical College where he received his Electronics degree. Jim worked for IBM and went on to start New Tech Inc., repairing office equipment, and JD TV, where he created videos for special occasions.

He was preceded in death by his parents, James Gill Sr. and Mae Gill, and sister Kim Gill.

He is survived by his two loving daughters, Jamie Gill Hall (Brooke) of Oak Ridge, TN and Julie Allison Pennock (Cris) of Ewa Beach, Hawaii; Grandchildren, Chloe Gill and Collin Baker; Sister Tina Davis; Nephew Jason Manley; Nieces Brittany Thomas and Courtney McClure.

Jimmy will be fondly remembered by those who knew him.

The family will receive friends at Weatherford Mortuary ,Thursday, January 17th from 5 to 7 pm, with service following at 7 PM. Mr. Steve Higginbotham will be officiating . The graveside service will be held at Oak Ridge Memorial Park on Friday at noon.
