Jimmy Dean Cissom Obituary

Jimmy Dean Cissom, 59, passed away unexpectedly of natural causes on Monday June 10, 2024, at his home in Walnut, MS.

Funeral Services honoring the life of Mr. Jimmy will be at 10 AM Saturday June 15, 2024, at Jesus Name Community Church in Walnut, MS with Bro. Cory Porterfield officiating and Bishop Gary Porterfield and Rev. Daniel Nooner sharing personal reflections. Visitation will be from 5 PM until 9 PM on Friday June 14, 2024, at Jesus Name Community Church and will continue from 9 AM until service time on Saturday. Graveside Services will follow in Jesus Name Community Church Cemetery.

Born September 23, 1964, in Tippah County, Mr. Jimmy was the son of the late Paul Dean and Mary Heavener Cissom. He received his education from Pine Grove High School and was married on June 17, 1997, to his beloved wife, Gloria Kesler Cissom, who survives. A hard worker, Mr. Jimmy was a truck driver with Asco Sanitation, as long as his health permitted.

A Christian and member of Jesus Name Community Church, Mr. Jimmy was man of few words, who had a gentle soul and easy-going personality. He enjoyed the simple and old things in life. His favorite pastimes included blue grass music and picking the banjo, looking through yard sales and flea markets, traveling to the mountains with family, and old cars, especially his 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass. Above all, Mr. Jimmy's greatest joy came from his family. He took the role as "Pawpaw" very serious and loved nothing more than sharing time with his grandchildren. He was a wonderful family man, who believed in taking care for his own, helping others, and keeping life simple. He will truly be missed by those who knew and loved him.

In addition to his wife of twenty-six years, Gloria Kesler Cissom, those left to cherish his memory include two daughters, Cindy Medlin (Mitchell) and Robin Simpson (Scott Woods), one sister, Betty Matthews (Grady), one brother, Gerald Cissom (Julie), ten grandchildren, Steven Walker, Elizabeth Walker, Gage Simpson, Josh Walker, Thomas Walker, Emma Cissom, Syranne Woods, Tabitha Walker, Tristan Walker, and David Walker, and a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends.

He is also preceded in death by his grandparents, R. C. and Vera Cissom and Learsley and Martha Heavener.

Donations can be directed to Camp Yadah at Jesus Name Community Church at 61 County Road 770, Walnut, MS 38683.
