In the early morning hours of Friday, Aug. 24, 2018, James Albert-Manning ‘Jimmy’ Crain, 26, tragically lost his life to addiction.

Born Jan. 20, 1992, Jimmy was an incredibly intelligent, witty, kind-hearted soul who loved music, animals and his family and friends. He will be sorely missed by everyone who knew and loved him.

Left to cherish his beautiful memory are his devastated parents, Lisa Crain and James Crain; heartbroken sisters, Audrey Crain, Anna Leonard, and Morgan Girucky (Daniel); nephew, Colin; grandfather, Jim Manning, aka his Goongie; great-grandparents, John and Bonnie Barber, aka his main man Paw Paw and his Maw Maw; grandmother, Debbie Groves; great-grandmother, Patricia Bailey; loving aunt, Lori Raymond (Mike); loving uncle, Matthew Totone; great-uncle, Jeff Barber (Kathy); great-aunt, Sue Oresky (Mike); adoring cousins, Kallie and Katrina Raymond and Sarah Damond; and his best friend and partner in crime since birth, his cousin, Joe Rice (Angeline).

Jimmy also leaves behind many other family members and friends who loved him and who will miss him terribly. Jimmy was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Cherrie Tomasovic; and by his beloved dog, Wubbie, who he had tattooed over his heart.

His family would like to thank everyone for loving Jimmy and for being by their sides throughout this terrible ordeal.

Jimmy’s service and celebration of his life will be held at 11 a.m., Thursday, Sept. 6, at Virginia Beach United Methodist Church, 212 19th St., Virginia Beach.
