Jimmie William Pohorelsky Sr.

October 3, 1923 - September 1, 2013

Jimmie William Pohorelsky, Sr. was born on October 3, 1923 in Caldwell, Texas to Tom and Annie Pohorelsky. He married the former Milady Cepcar, and their union was later blessed with two sons. He served during World War II in the U.S. Army. Jimmie was an area cattle rancher and farmer for many years. Later, after his first wife’s passing, Jimmie married his current wife, Irene McCowan. Jimmie really loved his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He also enjoyed his albums of country music, and if you sometimes couldn’t find him, all you needed to do was call the auction barns within a hundred mile radius.

Jimmie was preceded in death by his parents, Tom and Annie Pohorelsky, by his first wife, Milady Cepcar Pohorelsky, and by a son, John Pohorelsky.

Worth; two granddaughters, Nicole Pohorelsky of Giddings and Robin K. Pohorelsky of Dallas, and four great grandchildren, Miladie Pohorelsky, Hadlie Pohorelsky, Codi Padgett, and Paige Padgett, as well as a host of friends.
