Being doubly blessed, Richard married again in 1993 to Shirley England-Manley. Shirley dedicated herself to Richard’s care in his latter years.
Richard is survived by his wife, Shirley, his daughter, Brenda Faye Miller (Tony), step-sons Mark Manley, Terry L. Manley, Jerry Manley, Thomas Elbert Jammes (Judy), Terry A. Manley and brother Frank Jammes. Richard is also survived by many grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren, nieces and nephews and many in-laws.

This is a celebration of his life and legacy as he enters the everlasting presence of the Lord.

My precious, loving dad, Richard E. Jammes, was a wonderful example and influence in my life. He was always cheerful, honest, hardworking, honorable, kind, and a loving parent. He loved the Lord with his whole being. Dad was a giving friend and he loved to laugh. As a gardener, he would “watch” his plants grow and share his prize vegetables with us all. Dad always had time to share a smile with you and to add the comment “that’s for real” when listening to you. There is one thing “that’s for real,” and that is I will always carry my Dad’s beautiful memory in my heart. Until we meet again….

I am saddened to hear of Richard’s passing but am comforted by the assurance that he made his journey home to be with his Lord and Savior, whom he was as devoted to during his earthly life. I have wonderful memories of he and family visiting VA and our visits to his home in Florida. Loved his fresh garden-to-table food and hospitality when we visited. He will not be forgotten and we will see him again one day, maybe soon!

I have joy for my grandpa as he is finally fully in the presence of Jesus. He now knows more and loves more than we ever will in this life. Thank you Lord for your great mercies, for salvation through Jesus Christ. Have mercy on we who remain let your peace that passes understanding rest in our hearts and minds. Help us keep our eyes on you until we are reunited, amen.

You are all in my prayers and I pray that each one of you will feel God’s embrace as he gently puts his arms around and carries you through this sad time in your lives. He will never leave or forsake you and will give you the strength to endure. Your husband and father was a wonderful Christian man and I know without a doubt that he is rejoicing with our Heavenly Father. One day we all will be rejoicing if we have Jesus Christ as our personal savior. God bless and keep all of you.
