Mr. James “Jimmy” Frances Hoesel was born July 10, 1960 in Buffalo, NY, the son of the late Raymond Hoesel and Gloria LeBoeuf Hoesel Anderson and late step-father, Richard Anderson. After high school, he went to Sri Lanka as a foreign exchange student for six months. He will be lovingly remembered as a very adventurous person that would try anything once. He made his career as a Master Craftsman as he loved to build. Later in life when his health was not as good as it once was, he loved working with his step-sons on building projects where he served as the supervisor. If you were around him very long, you would quickly see his love for the Buffalo Bills, the Buffalo Sabers and the Beatles! Second to none was the time he spent with his family. He loved spending time with the kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. From early years to more recent times, he loved a good game of Risk, that sometimes would last a few hours or other times would last a few days! He attended the Collinwood Church of God. Mr. Jimmy departed this life on March 30, 2022 in Columbia, Tennessee at the age of 61 Years, 8 Months and 20 Days.
