Jimmy Ray was a member of the Perry First Church of God and knew in his heart that when God decided to call him home he was ready to go.  He lived a full life and he was a good man. 

A memorial service will be held Sunday, February 19, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at Perry First Church of God (1915 US Highway 221) in Perry. Florida.  In lieu of flowers, it was Jimmy Ray’s expressed wish to have donations sent to the Perry First Church of God’s Building Fund.   All friends and family are welcome to join us at the conclusion of the regular morning church services for a luncheon in the Fellowship Hall before the memorial service begins.

I am very sorry to read of the loss of, Mr. Padgett. He was a very faithful and dedicated man, married for 24 years! I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is, John 11:25, which says, "Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life." I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved husband, father, grandpa and friend. Sincerely, Meryl,
