Jimmy Clint Byrd, born August 25, 1941 in Savannah, TN to the late Woodrow Wilson and Fannie Mae Byrd.
Died June 9, 2023 at the age of 81 in his home in Spring, Hill, TN surrounded by his wife, children, and puppies. After graduating from Lobelville High School, Jimmy began his career as a pipeline worker. In 1979 he returned to Tennessee, stocked his truck with mechanic tools and tried his hand at sales. As his business relationships grew, Jimmy saw an opportunity to focus on the auto body and collision repair industry so he decided to add automotive paint to his product line, and in 1988 Byrd’s Automotive was born. He enjoyed being near the lake, fishing, corn hole, playing cards, and spoiling his puppies Harley and Hannah. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother Woodrow Byrd Jr., sister Linda Doyle, and great grandson Bobby Myles Bates.
