Jimmy spent most of his life at Little Acre Community Residence, where many fond memories were created. Jimmy loved listening to music, especially anything 70’s and Michael Jackson, which was his favourite.
Jimmy is survived by his siblings, caregiver and sister Candace Salkey and her husband Martin, several aunts, uncle, nieces, nephews and cousins, and best friends John Curran and Donald Leslie.
