Jimmy Darren Pickett, 49, went home to the Lord on May 26.

He was born Aug. 26, 1969 in Grundy County to Charlie and Ann Pickett, who preceded him in death. He is survived by his wife of 34 years Theresa Pickett, brother Tim Pickett, daughters and son-in-law Brittany Pickett, and Tabitha and David Lowery, and grandchildren that he loved dearly Alora Perry, Autumn Lowery, and his adopted grandbabies Ezekiel and Elijah Basham.

Jim loved to joke around and help people. He was a sheriff’s deputy for Cannon County and Sequatchie County for several years. He was a Middle Tennessee arm wrestling champion and boxer and he was very proud of that. He was also a roofer for many years and he worked at Tennessee Valley Tractor, the local Kubota dealer. He loved his family and was proud of his grandbabies.

Please join the family in a celebration of life on June 15 at 6 p.m. at Calvary Baptist Church pavilion at 610 Myers Lane in McMinnville. For more information, you can call or text (931) 743-0431.
