James was born on August 18, 1925 to the late Etienne Baker Musselwhite and Ephraim Emmett Musselwhite in Crisp County, Georgia. Jimmie proudly served in the United States Army Air Corp during WWII.  After he returned from service, he held many different jobs, always looking for the right fit for him and his family. He found his passion at Robins Air Force Base.  He went into electronics.  He studied and worked hard to learn by reading all the books they would offer for him to be successful.  He became an Electronics Supervisor and earned many awards for his suggestions.  These were some of his proudest moments.
