Alicia Boykin Brown Shreveport, LA Saturday, August 28, 2021 Jim was a wonderful brother in law, father, husband, son and Uncle. We will miss him terribly. I wish we could all be there today. Thinking of you all. David Larsen El Paso, TX Thursday, August 26, 2021 I became heavyhearted to read of the death of Jim McNutt. Jim (we called him Jimmy) grew up four doors away from me on Timberwolf Drive in El Paso. I knew Jim from 1951-62. Jim was two years older than I so our friendship was always an older kid in the neighborhood with a younger kid. Many summer afternoons we played in his back yard, watched the clouds roll by, and talked about life, as young boys saw it. His parents were good friends of my parents. His grandmother, Mrs. Martin, was a tremendous woman. In fact, many of my clothes as a boy were hand-me-downs from Jim through Mrs. Martin. The blue suit I wore for high school graduation was the same one Jim had worn two years earlier. In high school Jim was, in my eyes, about the coolest guy around. He first drove a 1955 Chevy then a Corvette. You can't get any cooler than that. Jim played tennis while I played football and baseball so we never competed on the same team. He was a good guy; I hope you can take comfort in that. I never knew him to be cruel or deceitful. He just carried himself with grace and dignity. The last time I saw Jim was either at Christmas in 1979 or 1980. My father and I went up to the McNutt house on Christmas day to see Mary and Zu (I never knew him by any other name) and Jim was visiting over the holidays. We had eggnog and talked about the old days. He was every bit as cool then as he was as a teenager, although I hope we were both a little more mature by that point. Jim, Mrs. Martin and the McNutts were some of the most decent people I've had the pleasure of knowing. You have every reason to be proud to have been a major part of his life. Sincerely, David Larsen davedog46@yahoo.com Service
