James ”Jimbo” Allen Staley, Sr. age 50, left this life as we know it on Thursday, January 13, 2022. He was born in Searcy, Arkansas on October 9, 1971. Jimbo as we all knew him, grew up in Ward and stayed very true to home. Jimbo proudly chose to be a police officer for his career. He worked in Austin, Ward, and at the sheriff’s office as a Lonoke County deputy. Jimbo also served on the Ward volunteer fire department for many years. Jimbo had a passion for public service both as a police officer and volunteer fireman. When he wasn’t working he loved to go fishing and loved being with his family most of all.
Jimbo was preceded in death by his loving mother Joe Alice Staley, his father William Doyle Staley, grandmother Florence (Big Momma) Staley, Papa John Staley, Calvin Eugene Staley and several other cousins, aunts, and uncles.
The people left to cherish his memory on this earth are his loving wife, Meagan Staley; his children; Joline (Jimmy “JD”) Mathis, James Allen “JJ” Staley Jr. (Brittany), Jacqueline “Jackie”(Kyle) Staley; his two beautiful grandchildren Beau and Maci; his nieces Brianna, Aleigha, and Kinley Staley; and his brothers and sisters; John (Mandy) Staley, William “Buster” Staley, Robert “Bobby” Staley, John David Campbell, Lenita Villagomez, and his special Aunt Martha Hill whom he loved very much, as well as a host of extended family and friends.
