Jimmy Odom

Jimmy Douglas Odom Sr. entered this world on August 17, 1932 in Enterprise, MS and passed on December 11, 2023. In his 91 years he lived a full life of adventure and accomplishment. In addition to receiving a bachelor's degree and making it to retirement as a lab technician for the Scott Paper Company, he served in the Air Force during the Korean War based in Germany. In his down time he loved to be close to nature, and spent that time hunting, fishing, and gardening. As he was very team oriented and enjoyed staying active, Jimmy was a fan of any and all sports. He was also a member of the Mason George U. Potter Lodge #912. However, the most important adventure to him of all was his loving family.
