Jimmie Arnold Baity, age 70, of Hiddenite went to his eternal home on July 15, 2017.

Jimmie was born January 22, 1947 in Alexander County to the late Rev. Homer Albert Baity and Mattie Reavis Baity. He was retired from Shurtape Technologies in Stony Point.

Jimmie was a dedicated hard worker and most of all he had a big friendly heart for all he met and was forever the comical jokester, and he loved to see people smile and laugh - forever a “kid at heart”.

Jimmie and his wife attended Sulphur Springs Baptist Church.

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by two brothers; David Atwell and James Larry Baity, and two sisters; Betty Baity Reese and Catherine Owens Hamby.

Jimmie leaves to carry on his legacy, his wife, Betty Jean Davis Baity and daughters Tracy Jeanette Baity and Sherry Mullins; step daughters Lisa Reyes and Trisha Coleman. Jimmie is survived by three brothers; Bill Baity, Sr. and wife Betty, Donald Baity and wife Clare and Jerry Baity. Three grandchildren surviving Jimmie are Andrew James Mullins and Jordan and Jared Miller along with numerous nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be held 5:00 pm Tuesday July 25, 2017 at Sulphur Springs Baptist Church, 116 Patterson Road Hiddenite with Pastor Mitch King and Rev. Steve Parks officiating. Visitation will be from 4-5 pm prior to the service. A gathering and cookout is being planned for a later date at the Baity home place in Vashti and will be announced later. 

In lieu of floral tributes the family request donations toward final cost or to a Veteran of Foreign Wars charity of choice.

BJ, I never new Jimmy until you introduced him to me at the amaco in hiddenite when you worked them. He was a lot like Jerry a real cut up. He never met a stranger, was a heck of a good person. I was so glad that you found a nice man. I'm not sure where you live but I do want to come see you. Love you
