Mr. James "Jimmy" Deloach Obituary

DeLoach, James (Jimmy) passed away peacefully around 3:40 am on January 3rd, 2024 at the age of 53, after a short battle with cancer. 

Jimmy was born on December 4th, 1970 to parents Hester DeLoach and James DeLoach in Indianapolis, Indiana. After graduating from Arsenal Technical High School, he went on to join the United States Navy. He was on an aircraft carrier in the Navy until it was decommissioned. He often reminisced on the “crazy times he had in the Navy.” Jimmy then went on to do painting and carpentry work in Indiana and eventually moved to North Carolina to live with his sister, Dianna. There, he fell in love with the beach and his beloved pup, Daisy. Upon coming back to Indiana, James began a job that he was very proud of at Peerless Pump where he worked until his death. 

Jimmy loved fishing, watching football, drinking beer, and petting whatever dog was around. He enjoyed spending time with his friends, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and great nieces and nephews.   


He is preceded in death by his parents, Hester DeLoach (Wright) and James DeLoach. James is survived by his loving siblings Lucinda Gorman (Barry), Diana Smith (Jay), and his three nieces, Amy Sudduth (Kevin), Beth West (Heath), Hannah Gorman and his many beloved cousins.


Per Jimmy's request, he will be cremated and there will be no services held. If anyone would like to make any donations, please donate to your local animal shelter in honor of Jimmy.
