Jim Schmager, departed from my life on Friday, April 26, 2013. He was my best friend, soul mate and my husband.Jim was of the Catholic faith, he was known by others as Jim, Jimbo and Granddaddy. People often compared him to George Carlin. He could always make you laugh or at least smile. He would always help others when needed.Jim loved his camper on the lake, his pontoon boat, his dogs, But most of all his pride and joy his Dikate Motorcycle. He was a die hard Cleveland Brown fan.Jim served his country in the Air Force and was a key salesman in Toledo, Ohio. And one of the best bartenders in Sarasota, Fla., and security guard at Ruby Falls in Chattanooga.Jim leaves behind his wife of 27 years, Michele; his children, Nick, Robin,Scott, Tobi and Kendra; his grandchildren, Josh, Tyler, Shilo, Brandon; and niece, Sandy.Until we are in each others arms again my darling, I will miss you with all my heart and love you forever.Visit www.hamiltonfuneraloptions.com to share words of condolences to the family and view the memorial tribute.The family will receive friends from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 4, 2013.Arrangements are by Hamilton Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 4506 Hixson Pike. 423-531-3975.
