James “Jim” Raymond York

James Raymond York, known by all that loved him as simply Jim, passed away Wednesday, June 19, 2019. A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. July 20 at Harmony Presbyterian Church with Rev. Tom Prentiss officiating.

Jim was born April 9, 1977 in Corsicana to parents William Lee York and Linda Rankin York.

His father preceded him in death. He was a 1995 graduate of Fairfield High School.

Jim was an outgoing and strong man, who never met a stranger. No matter who or where, someone always knew Jim York.

He had more friends than anyone will ever know, and had literally given the shirt off his back for so many.

He is survived by his beloved wife Jessica Ty York, his beautiful daughters, Kaitlin Newman and Addyson York; his mother and step-father, Linda Fryer and Charles Fryer; his brother Charles Wilson and wife.
