James Guy McConathy was born Nov. 23, 1927, in Blum, the ninth of 12 children of the late William Oscar and Serena Allie Offutt McConathy. He was a proud veteran of the United States Navy having served during World War II aboard the USS Huntington. After his honorable discharge, Jimmy married the former Virginia Adams on Oct. 29, 1949, and they made their home in Parker County. Jimmy was a longtime member of Aledo Church of Christ where he taught the junior high class and served as a deacon.
Jimmy made his career as a pattern builder for General Dynamics and retired after 42 years and eight months of dedicated service. He was a hard worker from early in life - from serving in the Navy, working at General Dynamics, or woodworking at his home. However, when he wasn't working he hooked up his Airstream and off he and Virginia went.
Jimmy was preceded in death by his parents and 10 siblings.
