Obituary for James Isham Dykes

James Isham Dykes, 83, passed peacefully surrounded by family on June 10, 2019 in Pensacola, FL.
Jim was born on March 2, 1936 in Fountain Springs, TN to Virginia Phillips Dykes and William Lee Dykes. Jim attended Central High in Knoxville, TX and then went onto Texas Tech University where he played 3 years of varsity football. Upon leaving school he served as a police officer in Miami, FL and then Pensacola, FL where he resided for more than 40 years and eventually started a business. He was known in the local community as KraZ Jim, owner and operator of a full-service filling and automotive repair station for over 30 years.
He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Barbara; sons, Chip, Jim, Deke, Keith (Brooke) and Jimmy (Jessica); plus 5 grandchildren, Taylor, Gunnar, Peyton, Parker and Miller. He is also survived by his older brother, Edwin Dykes; and 2 nieces and their families. He also leaves behind countless happy memories.
Jim and Barbara took great pleasure in raising their family. Most weekends, they could be found on their boat, fishing or frequenting areas around the gulf coast. As their kids grew older, weekends on the water were replaced by weekends at the ballpark. After the kids’ playing days were over, they continued their adventures on the waterways and later became fans of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. They could often be found in attendance at their games.
Services will be held Saturday, June 15, 2019 at Faith Chapel Funeral Home, 1000 S Hwy 29, Cantonment, FL 32533. Visitation will be from 11:30-12 with service beginning at 12. Reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, the family asked that contributions be made to the Wounded Warrior Project. https://support.woundedwarriorproject.org/Donate
