February 15, 1952 - December 1, 2016
James Robert Hargrave “Jimmy” of Tioga, TX passed away on December 1, 2016. He was born February 15, 1952 in Dallas, TX to Edward Murrell Hargrave and Dorothy Marguerite Flaherty. Loving husband and partner of 42 years of Dickie Arnold Hargrave. Jimmy knew how to appreciate and enjoy life and was continually surrounded by long-term friends who loved him dearly. Jimmy displayed his love of nature and its bounty by creating a country homestead that showcased his building and gardening talents. Friends often gathered there while Jimmy cooked homestyle meals using organically grown produce from his garden. Jimmy’s mac and cheese was legendary. For a number of years, Jimmy and Dickie enjoyed sharing their vacation home that Jimmy built in Breckenridge, CO with family and friends. A collector of music posters and political buttons, a sports enthusiast and avid fisherman, Jimmy was also a classic rock and jazz aficionado. Jimmy loved New York City and Broadway plays and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing from North Texas State University (now UNT). An intelligent man with a soft heart, Dickie and Jimmy were parents to a long line of lucky dogs and cats who were fortunate enough to have been adopted by them. Jimmy’s friends and family will deeply miss his kind nature and gentle soul. Jimmy is survived by his wife, Dickie Arnold Hargrave, his sister, Eugenia Sue Hargrave, his sisters-in-law and their families, along with his many friends.
