YORKTOWN - Jimmy B. Green, 72, passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2010. He was a native of Burnt Corn, Ala., and resident of York County for 48 years.
Jimmy was employed with Newport News Shipbuilding as a mechanical engineer in a supervisory position and retired in 1999 after 36 years of service. He was a member of Bethel Baptist Church and served as one of its Deacons. Jimmy enjoyed the outdoors - hunting, fishing, and gardening.
