James “Jimmy” Ernest Henry O’Mary, age 66, of Temple passed suddenly from this life on Friday, May 8, 2020 in Williamson County. Born in Temple on the 5th day of December 1953 he was the son of James O’Mary and Margie Lou Walker.

Jimmy attended Temple schools and spent his entire life in Temple. He worked as an auto and motorcycle mechanic in his younger days then he worked for Johnson’s Piano and Organ for over 10 years. For the past 36 years Jimmy has worked for Temple ISD, 29 years in the media and technology department and for the past 6 years, until his death, he was a crossing guard at Western Hills Elementary School where he was dearly loved by the students, teachers and parents of all the kids. Jimmy loved his family. He married his wife Martha in Waco, Texas and together they have spent the last 32 years together. Family was everything to Jimmy. He loved spending time with his children and grandchildren as well as his brothers and sisters, playing bingo and dominoes whenever he could. Jimmy also loved visiting Las Vegas; you could always find him sitting at his favorite slot machine trying his luck and honing his slot machine skills. The love Jimmy had for his family and for the children he helped get safely to and from school every day will be the legacy he leaves for generations to come.
