Jimmy Leon Kiser passed away Saturday, Sept. 2, 2006 at the age of 58. He was the son of William and Mary Kiser. His father preceeded him in death.

Jimmy was a Vietnam War veteran, serving in the Marines and obtaining the Purple Heart, Bronze Star and Marksmanship Metals. His dedication and sacrifice to his country and its citizens was his proudest accomplishment.

He was an excellent carpenter and a self-employed home builder. A native of Gaston County, he was educated in the Gastonia schools and voted Most Valuable Player in football during his senior year at Hunter Huss High.

Jimmy attended Gaston College after returning from his tour of Vietnam. Later he worked for Duke Power and graduated from Duke Power's School of Welding, followed by several years of career welding. He shared his natural gift with his students at Brunswick Community College as a welding instructor and was given an award of appreciation for building a prototype machine to be used in the agriculture industry for the country of Guyana. During this time, he often created metal sculpture through the art of welding. He also held a degree in Equine Technology. Jim loved riding and teaching others.

He is survived by his wife, three daughters, five grandchildren, two sisters and one brother. Jimmy spent his last years living and working close to the ocean where his ashes are now scattered.


There are souls in this world which have the gift of finding joy everywhere and of leaving it behind them when they go.
