Jimmy Harlow Obituary, Death – Jimmy Richard “Termite” Harlow, who lived in Wren and was 75 years old when he passed away on March 31, 2023, had been battling an ailment for a considerable amount of time before his death. On November 21st, 1947, he was born in Wren, Mississippi. The exact date is unknown. He was the son of his parents, Richard C. Harlow, Jr. and Merle Lawler Harlow, both of whom had passed away before he was born.
Jimmy was given the nickname “Termite” when he was in high school, and he carried that moniker with him throughout the remainder of his life. After graduating from Amory High School, he continued his studies at Itawamba Junior College in Fulton, Mississippi. He received his associate’s degree there. He was a veteran of the Vietnam War and had served in the United States Army from 1971 to 1972.
His tour of duty took place in Vietnam. He was a member of the 223rd Engineer Battalion of the United States Army National Guard and spent the years 2003 and 2004 serving in Iraq as part of the mission to aid in the liberation of Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He served for a cumulative total of 23 years in the United States Army as well as the United States Army National Guard.
This accomplishment brought him a great deal of pride. Up until the day he quit, Jimmy was employed by Georgia Gulf in Aberdeen, Mississippi, in the Purchasing and Receiving department as a Supervisor. He held this position until today. In his later years, he worked part-time at the Food Giant in Aberdeen, Mississippi. The city is located in Mississippi.
Jimmy’s golf swing, which he enjoyed doing in his spare time when he played golf, garnered a lot of attention from his pals, who constantly remarked on how “weird” it looked. In spite of this, the activity that he looked forward to the most was getting together with his other relatives and friends at Uncle Dub’s shop for an afternoon of listening to stories and coming up with their own tall tales.
Jimmy treasured the time that he was able to spend in the Wren neighborhood and “the bottom.” In addition to that, he took great pleasure in the time that he was able to spend with his grandkids and great grandchildren. All of the wonderful memories that were made throughout the course of his life will live on eternally in the hearts of his family, friends, and the people who were closest to him in his life.
We are going to miss having him here with us. He is survived by his wife Linda Gail Pickle, whom he married on June 25, 2005; his sister Janet Harlow Coleman, who is married to Mike Coleman and lives in Lebanon, Tennessee; his three children Jimmy R. Harlow II of Aberdeen, Timothy Harlow of Aberdeen, and Shannon (Darren) Hensley of Tupelo; three stepchildren Wendy Calhoun of Amory.
