James “Jimmy” Valentine, 48, passed away Monday February 18, 2019. He was born and raised in Wilmington NC, the son of James C. Valentine Sr. and Carolyn Willaford Valentine. He is preceded in death by his step-father Ray Jackson.
Jimmy is survived by his wife, Holly Valentine and her two children, Kager and Kayleigh; his mother, Carolyn Willaford Valentine; his daughter, Samantha Valentine Schweitzer and her husband, David; his Aunt “B” Brenda Benton, Aunt “Jo” Joanne Summerlin and Aunt “Dr” Rhonda West.
Jimmy loved everyone and was loved by many. He enjoyed going out and shooting pool, singing karaoke, and going on adventures with his wife Holly whom he adored. He knew how to make everyone around him smile, laugh and he was always there to help you if you needed it. He was a very hard worker in everything he did. He might not have always been on time but he was there eventually. He will be deeply missed and never forgotten. He was definitely one of a kind!
