He was a 1975 graduate of Arlington High School, and was involved in football, baseball, Young Life and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He was proud of the fact that his dad played on the 1951 Arlington Colt Championship football team. Jimmy taught school for 20 years at Webb Elementary and later at Bowie High School. He had a passion for coaching youth sports, coaching football and select baseball for his son and others for over 20 years. He also umpired softball more than 30 years at the major level. An avid Texas Rangers fan, his play-by-play commentary will be greatly missed. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing and bow hunting. Jimmy's favorite music was Texas Red Dirt and his favorite band was Little Feat. Jimmy was a loving and giving man who will be dearly missed. His children and his wife were the loves of his life. Jimmy's life centered around his own family, but he still found time to give to so many others. He was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Lou Glasgow, in 1996.

Memories Timeline


  1. Jimmy, I’m gonna get that big black pig for you! I will miss your wit about Rangers baseball and your passion for bowhunting as do I.

  2. Annie, there are no words to express the deep sadness I feel for you and your family at this time. For now, I offer this to each of you – let our Lord carry you, let yourself lean on the strength of your family and friends, drink plenty of water and take care of you. You are in my heart.

  3. I don’t know how many years I knew Jimmy, but it probably goes back to when I last had a team (1991) and definitely continued thru when I worked for Louisville Slugger. Whenever I ran a U-trip Major level tournament I did my best to have him helping call in them. If I had him on a field I never worried about things being looked after like they needed to be. He was a great umpire, a tribute to the game of slow pitch softball and a great all-around individual whom I’m proud to have called a friend. You will be missed but not forgotten.

  4. Annie and family,

    We are praying for you and your family during this difficult and sad time. So so sorry for your loss.

  5. Annie, Raymond and all the family,
    All of you are in our prayers. We remember well the time you spent in our home. We appreiated Jimmy – as so many did.
    Love and prayers,
    Wanda And Neal Estes
