June 7, 2015 Can't believe this...We were friends and we ALWAYS KNEW THAT !  I could tell him anything and he LISTENED and possibly commented and put his 100 cents in. He and I wished we lived closer together so we could LAUGH and CRY together. Oh, and laugh we did! That was such a joy; knowing that you WOULD come away from a visit with a HUGE belly-laugh and feel the endorphins being released at that time and thru-out the day as the memory was encountered again. Also, he was kind and caring and as we continued our relationship thru the phone or on FB, we grew together and closer. I was off of FB for a long while and when I returned, I immediately "felt" that something was "off" and then I looked for Jimmy's posts and tried to contact him as I needed HIM ! Finally, dreading the worst, I googled him and froze as my finger wavered over his obit. I opened the website (while I was inwardly saying "NO, NO, NO"). Upon realizing that he was gone from this reality, I broke down in a cry emoted from my heart and being as questions rambled thru my mind. Upon wavering acceptance of the reality, I could get to work reading all that was available, copying pictures and absorbing insights from his myriad of loving and amazing friends for my Private life and death send-off for Jimmy. What a GREAT and WONDERFUL MAN/SOUL. In my own way, I say Good-bye to Jimmy.....XOXXXOOOOXOXO

Patti Walker Lyon, Wimberley, TX

I very much regret this huge loss and feeling the pain his family are going through, I want to share the hope that very soon "will be a resurrection from God", as the Bible tells us in Acts 24:15. Courage and strength to all your family at this painful time. www.JW.org

Jimmy was a kind, gentle man who enjoyed life. Where others fail to see the beauty of simple things, Jimmy had a keen focus whether it was to stop and appreciate the sweet fragrance of a flower, feed a scurry of squirrels, or see the needs of others and do his best to provide help. Jimmy was my cousin, and I will miss him. I'm sad, but I know his struggle here is over and I have assurance he is with our Heavenly Father.

Delene Hoffpauir Allen, Mineola, TX

I'm saddened, just learning of Jimmy's passing. I know he had some rough days, but he always seemed to shine a bright light on the day - every day. I miss you already, Jimmy, but know you're in the arms of the angels now. When next we meet, we'll dance and we'll sing. It'll be like Christmas- always.

Julie' Weldon, Vidor, TX

I only knew Jimmy for a couple of years. But grew to love him and all his Facebook post very quickly. Facebook has not been the same since his passing. He is greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of Jimmy's family and friends. With Deepest Sympathy, Odessa Spikes

Jimmy and I took piano lessons from Mary Julie Collins back in the day. We had many recitals at The Department Club on Lakeshore Drive. Miss Collins would always take her oldest and best students to play a duet at the end of the recital as a grand finale. I had the privilege of being able to play with Jimmy for a few years. Jimmy was a much better pianist that I and played from the heart. Lost touch after that but kept up with him through his cousin Jane. Reconnected on FB after several years and enjoyed his zest for life, his attention to details in everything and his gourmet meals. Jimmy was a positive influence even though he was going thru his own storm. Rest in Peace Jimmy. I will miss you on FB.

Debbie Carberry, Spring, TX

Well Jimmy......Life as we all know it is very short and seems like just a short time ago you were in your mothers arms. First time I got to hold you was at our Grandmother Lippincott's house in Port Arthur. I know you are in a much better place free from pain and sickness you suffered with for the past several years. And, I can see you with your mother, father and Little Pat in paradise, God's World of beauty. So, you are finally catching up with your little brother who was good to me. I'm going to miss you my man but, will cherish all of my memories of you.

Pete Lippincott, Magnolia, Tx

Phillip Todora Jr., Bridge City, Tx

I didn't know Jimmy well in school Thomas Jefferson Class of 1974 was large, but we reconnected on fb like so many of our classmates have. We will all miss his wonderful morning greetings and stories of his family, not to mention the pictures and discription of the meals he could whip up out of so little . Most of all I will miss Jimmy, even though I know he is in a better place and has rejoined him earthly and heavenly families. RIP Jimmy, know you were and are loved and will be missed. I am proud to be able to have called you friend even if mainly on fb.

Rebecca (Hankins) Leger , Lumberton , TX

Another classmate from our 74 class gone too soon. Jimmy was a sweet man that always had a good morning message for us all. I already missed it this morning. I loved the pictures of his gourmet meals. It looked like he was feeding an army. I will miss that too. Jimmy was not a well man but loved life. I didnt realize how ill he was but i'm thankful he didn't suffer. RIP my sweet friend. You are greatly missed by many.

Lee Ann Collins, Bridge City, TX

Jimmy was such an inspiration to so many. He lived each day to the fullest. He enjoyed every second. He savored the beauty of all of God's creations. He had a pure heart, and was one of the most devout Catholics I have ever known. He is at peace with our Lord now. No more pain, and no more struggles my sweet friend....May God's perpetual light shine upon you, and may you rest in the Love and Peace of Our Lord. Amen.

Kathleen Black, Hamshire, tx

Jimmy was a lifelong friend of our family, we lost touch over the years, but thanks to facebook we reconnected several years ago. I know Jimmy has been ill over the years and then worsened. He is in a much better place, where he is healed and not in pain. Jimmy will be truly missed by many, he was a good friend, I will always treasure the stories and memories I have of him. May he forever rest in peace...<3

Suellen Noel LeBlanc, Port Neches, Tx

I was so sad to hear of Jimmy's passing.. Although I didn't know him personally . I knew I could call him a friend... I loved all the photos he shared and just his passion for life, and the catholic church... Rest in the arms of your loving father Jimmy, you will be missed

Rhonda Mathews, GROVES, , Tx

It is so sad to lose another classmate of the class of 1974 at Thomas Jefferson and Jimmy was such a big part of our class. We reconnected on Facebook as did many classmates and I loved his morning greetings each day. His daily photos of feeding the birds and squirrels and caring for all his plants was always enjoyable to see. He decorated for every season and holiday and shared his bargain finds with all of us. He was also a gourmet cook and his plating of food was like looking at pictures from Food and Wine Magazine! He spoke so highly of his parents and their love for food and entertaining along with all they taught him. Jimmy will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Connie Ledger Chaplin, Fort Worth, TX

We loved Jimmy so much. He was a ray of sunshine added to my life. I didn't know him well in school, but we renewed our friendship several years ago when I started helping him with his Welch Street Project. It was a joy and an honor to be part of that. He loved helping those children. We all loved getting together with him. It always brightened up everyone's day to get to visit with him. With all his troubles, he was always happy. We will miss you terribly Jimmy and we all love you so much.

Linda Culpepper, Cypress, Texas

I know there's more than just this life, plenty more, and I know you know that too. You will be missed but you already know that as well. Until we meet again, like I said before, "Save us a place at the table!"

Kerri Zwetzig Wilson, Vidor, TX

It is with great Sadness that we lose another member of our class:( I didn't know Jimmy as well as some our other classmates but from what I understand he was a Great person as well as a great friend to those who knew him well..rest in Peace my friend!!!

You and your mom Mary will always be in my heart. Love to you forever. Connie Davis

Jimmy Carl Hoffpauir was born March 11, 1956 in Hattiesburg, MS and passed away on Sunday, April 12, 2015 at Omega House in Houston, TX. Jimmy was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Maxie and Mary Hoffpauir, and is survived by numerous cousins and many friends. Jimmy grew up in Port Arthur, TX where his parents owned a “Mom and Pop store,” Lakeview Grocery. Jimmy loved to tell stories of his childhood and shared many memories such as Fourth of July cook-outs at the beach, the smell of his momma’s pot roast on Sunday, and trips taken far and wide with his mother and other relatives.
A talented musician, Jimmy’s experience ranged from school band clarinetist and drum major to studying for his Ph.D. in Music History at LSU. In recent years, he shared his love of music through Facebook, posting favorite songs and writing rave reviews of his church choir and organist every Sunday.
Formerly an educator in several school districts, Jimmy’s last position was that of second grade teacher at Gregory-Lincoln in Houston ISD. There he formed a very special friendship with Betty Herrington, who along with her husband, Jim, made Jimmy a part of their extended family. In recent years, when Jimmy was not well enough to hold down a full time teaching position anymore, he reached out to the children in his apartment complex. He set up a free tutoring service and with help from his high school classmates, provided much needed school supplies. Even after moving away, children would return to visit him, and he would have elaborately wrapped holiday gifts and treats waiting for them.
Jimmy delighted in holidays, both large and small, and relished decorating his apartment for each one. Weeks in advance, he planned gourmet holiday meals which he prepared and photographed, capturing their elegant presentation. He especially savored Christmas, beginning with Pandora Christmas music in October, and continuing his celebration well into January, loath to see his favorite season end.
More than anything, Jimmy was kind. He loved God, his family, and friends. He was a bright spot all day, every day and well into the night on Facebook. He will be sorely missed, but we know he is where he belongs…with Jesus Christ, his Lord and in the company of the family he missed and loved so much.
Friends are cordially invited to gather with the family at nine o’clock in the morning on Monday, April 20, at St. Anne Catholic Church, 2140 Westheimer Road in Houston.
The Rite of Christian Burial will be held at ten o’clock in the morning following the visitation at St. Anne Catholic Church.
