James Sirmans

-- — James Sirmans, 74, of Lakeland, GA passed away Sunday afternoon, April 7, 2013 at his residence after a lengthy illness, while surrounded by loved ones singing him into the presence of his Savior.  After losing his beloved wife Mary (Faye) Moore Sirmans of 51 years, he was longing to be with her and Jesus. He was born July 24, 1938 in Clinch County, to the late James Ernest and Edna Lee (Tomlinson) Sirmans of Lanier County, Ga. He was a veteran of the United States Air Force. By trade he was a master carpenter, until his health forced him to retire. He LOVED to fish, but God put a stronger desire in his heart to be a FISHER OF MEN, always quick to be a bold witness for Jesus. Many times he was misunderstood, but those that really knew him, knew he had a heart of gold, who would give the shirt off of his back without men’s applause. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone at any time; even more so, when the Lord started a new church. One thing is for sure he really loved his JESUS!
