You could find him often outside working in his yard and sometimes in a neighbor's yard.

Jimmy is preceded in death by his parents. He will be cherished by those who remain: His children, Mary Romero and husband, Jesus Aguirre; Tina Romero; Jimmy Romero, Jr. and wife Kay Romero; and David Romero.  His Sister, Judy Quintero, husband, Willie Quintero, and his brothers, Alfonso Romero, Jr. and Tony Romero. Jimmy was blessed with 13 grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.
