His ‘going home’ celebration was in the chapel of Young’s Community Memorial Funeral Home on Friday, February 11, 2022, at noon, with Rev. Kenny Johnson, Rev. Clyde Walker, Rev. Glinda Kelly and Rev. Jim Kelly officiating. Visitation was at 10 a.m. until time of service. Burial followed at Oak Grove Cemetery in Winnsboro under the direction of Young’s Community Memorial Funeral Home.
Jimmy was preceded in death by his parents, Rev. James E. Burns, Jr. and Opal Mae Burns of Winnsboro; one sister, Kelly Michelle Burns also of Winnsboro; one niece, Carrie Bernice Hatten and one nephew, Keith Allen Sikes.
Survivors left to cherish his memory are his sisters, Paula Lambert and husband Hollis of Winnsboro; Jackie Cloutier and husband David of Winnsboro; nephews, Aaron Lambert, Chris Lambert; great nephew, Blaine Lambert and a new addition he didn’t have a chance to meet……great-great nephew Rowen. Also, one very fond niece, Falisha Cloutier; two half-sisters, Joyce Hatten and husband Bill of Dexter, Missouri; Martha Gayle Sikes and husband Jerry of Swartz; one half-brother, Richard Burns of Rayne, LA and a host of church family and friends.
Jimmy has been in the ministry since he was 15 years old and pastored Faith Tabernacle for 21 years. At a very young age the Burns family began to travel and evangelize. The children would play and sing, then their dad would preach. The only life Jimmy has ever known was behind a piano, an organ, or a guitar. Yes, you guessed it - he mastered them all. He loved God and his music with all his heart and soul. That is why at the passing of his dad in 2001, he stepped up as pastor to the church his dad had led for many years. He often was heard to remark, “I feel inadequate to fill dad’s big shoes.” But with the help of the Lord, he continued to play his music and love the folks of Faith Tabernacle. When his nephews and niece were born, they became the apple of his eye. “Uncle Mimmie” as you affectionally called him, did his best to leave you with memories of great love of music, and a good example of godly living. So today, the last note has been played - Aaron, Chris, Blaine, and Falisha - giving you instructions to pick up your instrument and play with all your heart, making sure you are finely tuned, because you don’t know when the time will come for us to hear the clarion call, as Brother Jimmy clearly heard, in the early morning hours of January 30, 2002.
“Strike up the band, assemble the choir, another soldier’s coming home. You’ve played your last note on earth.” Matthew 24:31
Pallbearers were Aaron Lambert, Chris Lambert, Blaine Lambert, Falisha Cloutier, David Cloutier, and Thad Thompson.
Honorary pallbearers were Chad Ward and Derrick Tillery
Words cannot express how much we thank you for the expressions of sympathy and encouragement you have given during our time of sorrow. We are truly grateful for your friendship and support.
