November 15, 1941 - November 15, 2021
Jimmy Lee Pilgrim, 80 of Fresno, California, died on Monday, November 15, 2021, in Selma, California. Jimmy was born to Ernest Pilgrim and Nora Etta Rodgers Pilgrim on November 15, 1941 in Reedley, California. Jimmy grew up in a very humble hard working family of 10 with 7 siblings. If there is one thing his loved ones knew about Jimmy.... It is that he was a proud man, Jimmy made certain that everyone he met knew what a proud man he was. If you were family, a life long friend, or just had the pleasure of setting next to him in a lobby you were sure to have heard a story or two that left you knowing he was a proud man! You might have also learned he was feisty, stubborn, strong willed, and had a heart of gold! He married his first love Treba Joyce Pilgrim and raised their family of 6 children with hopes of giving them the same pride that they held in their hearts. After 31 years of marriage his wife Treba passed away. Jimmy was brokenhearted until he connected with the new love of his life Mary Floyd. Jimmy and Mary shared 16 years of happiness and cherished each other. The joy he found with Mary gave his children peace. The memories Jimmy and Mary built together will forever be cherished and kept in our hearts. The pride Jimmy had for Mary was displayed with his smile, the love he had for Mary will always be remembered and treasured by his children. His children will be forever grateful for the love that Jimmy and Mary shared! And for the fact Mary put up with Jimmy's crazy butt. Thank you Mary for filling his heart with love, his soul with happiness, and his life with purpose. We know how much he loved you and we will forever be thankful you are part of our lives!! Jimmy is survived by a daughter Jamie Hughes, son Jeff Reynolds, daughter Janice Renee (Luis) Lozano, daughter Joyce Etta Pilgrim (Will) Frea, daughter Stacy Darlene Spencer, companion Mary Floyd, brother Frankie Pilgrim, Sr., brother Billy Pilgrim, sister Carol Brown, sister Frances Nixon. He is also survived by 20 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren. Jimmy is proceeded in death by wife Treba, his son Jerry Pilgrim.
