James Edward "Jim" Sizemore


James Edward “Jim” Sizemore, 76, of Delano, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 20, 2021, surrounded by his beloved family.

Jim was born on May 28, 1945, in Pineville, Ky., to the late Edward and Alice Patterson Sizemore.

A man of many talents, Jim was a well thought of handyman who could build or fix anything imaginable. He had a great love for his family and took the highest care of the families he served throughout the 41 years at Woodmere Cemetery in Detroit, Mich.

One of the many but most cherished memories would be his talent in the kitchen. He was a great cook but even greater family man. The greatest attribute accomplished in life would be that of his family. Jim loved spending time with each of them and will be missed by everyone blessed to have been in his presence.

In addition to his parents, Edward and Alice Sizemore, he was also preceded in death by his stepsons: Keith and Harold J. Cooper; along with many siblings.

Left to honor his legacy are his beloved wife of 14 years,  Frances Sisum Cooper; children: James A. (Rebecca) Sizemore, Holly Sizemore; stepdaughters: Cynthia Cooper, and Theresa Cooper; sister, Shirley Sizemore; brother-in-law, Melvin (Linda) Sisum; 11 grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

A Celebration of Life service will be conducted at 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 24, 2021, in the chapel of Higgins Funeral Home of Benton. Entombment will follow with his family serving as pallbearers.

His family will receive friends from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, prior to the service at the funeral home.
