Jimmie Dwayne Pridmore, 52, passed away on March 7, 2020 in Modesto, California. Jimmie was born in Modesto on July 14, 1967 to parents: Joan Toth and the late Jimmy Pridmore. Jimmie married his wife of 33 years, Donna Owens on May 29, 1987. He worked as a truck driver for 25 years. He had a passion for the big rig and being on the road just like his father and grandfather. They were his guardian angels, always flying beside him. He was a true jack-of-all-trades. He could fix or build anything.
In Jimmie’s spare time he enjoyed working on cars and putting together puzzles. He was a diehard 49er fan and could sing word for word any oldie hip hop song. If you knew him, you knew he was a master on the barbecue and loved spending weekends by the pool with his family and grandkids.
Jimmie was a loving husband, father, poppy, son, brother and friend. He was very proud of his family. He enjoyed watching his girls play softball and teaching his son all about cars.
Family always came first to him. The love for his grandchildren shined the brightest. There was not a single thing he would not do for them. Their faces lit up with joy whenever they were around him.
Jimmie is preceded in death by his father Jimmy Pridmore. He leaves behind his loving wife Donna Pridmore, his mother Joan Toth, and stepfather Dwayne Toth.
Jimmie also leaves behind his children; Britany Pridmore of Modesto, California, Amanda (Kevin) Lavoie of Monroe, North Carolina, Elizabeth (Troy) Damron of Modesto, California, Rebecca Pridmore of Hermiston, Oregon, Jimmie Pridmore Jr. of Modesto, California; his grandchildren Hayleigh, Olivia, McKenzie, Baylee, Emrys and Aubriana; his siblings Manny Aflague of Sacramento, California, Anthony Aflague of Santa Rosa, California, and Katie Berger of Los Angeles, California.
