Sammy was born September 24, 1958 in Greenville to Lloyd Ray, Jr. and Zohelen (Anderson) Jimmerson.  He went from labor to reward on March 20, 2021 at Christus Mother Frances Hospital in Tyler. He attended Ore City schools and married Connie Jimmerson in 1981; to this union his daughter, Shequelia, was born.  He visited family and friends often to show how much he cared for them and if there was anything he could do to help anyone, he would.  Most of all, he loved his daughter and grandchildren.  He was preceded in death by his mother, Zohelen Jimmerson.
