565. James Frank PIPPIN Jr. was born on 5 May 1928 in Bonham, Fannin County, Texas.246,247 He died on 18 October 1998 at the age of 70 in Denison, Grayson County, Texas.247,248

Juanita Deatherage says he was born in Bonham, not Ladonia.

Jimmy Pippin graduated from Ladonia High School in the Class of 1945; May 30, 1947 Ladonia News.

Jimmy divorced Estelle - the only other wife I knew anything about was Judy Bond. However I found in the Texas Marriage Index, 1966-2002 - the following. James F. Pippin Jr., age 43, married Edith C. Lester, age 31, at Hill County, TX on 31 Aug 1971. The age and name fit and this marriage was about two years before the marriage to Judy Bond. I suspect he was married three times.

At the time of Jim's death, his son Kevin and wife Goodie lived in Durant OK. Three grandchildren were named in the Funeral Bulletin, none living with their fathers: Kory & Kasha Pippin of Lewisville, TX; Kyle of Waco, TX.

Died in hospital from massive heart attack. Burial at Highland Cemetery, Durant, OK. His gravesite is listed in the database of U. S. Veterans for his military service in WW II

His social security number was obtained in North Carolina - perhaps when he was in the Navy.
