Jimmy was killed in a hunting accident, the day after Christmas, while hunting with his dad, James Arthur (Red) Hillhouse and brother, David. His age was 12 years 8 months.

I met Jimmy in the 1st grade at Highlands Elementary in 1959. We became friends after his mother Billie gave him a nice birthday party and most of his classmates were there. A few years later, he and his family moved to Prairie Avenue, where I lived. There were a lot of kids our age to play with, walk to school together, ride bicycles, and just hang out. Jimmy was a quiet, polite, well mannered kid with a big smile. His voice had a slight, nasally twang, and he would laugh a lot with a grin from ear to ear. He may have been as shy as I was back then, and never got into trouble as far as I know. He was a little timid about the braces he had on his teeth....That sad day in December made all us kids face our own mortality, Jimmy gone at just 12 years old. He has been resting now for 46 years next to his father, just steps from my parents and my brothers. He would have grown to be a fine man, husband and father, but Jimmy will be forever young! You would have loved him...he was my friend.
