Jimmy Earl Chatman-Brady was born March 4, 1967 in Oxford, MS to Earnest Brady and Mary Alice Pegues in Oxford, MS.

His most precious joy of all was spending time with his grandchildren, he was the best granddad ever.

To cherish his memories and life, he leaves his daughters, Kimberly Horton of Houston, TX, Janika Davis and Erica Davis both of Greenville, MS; god son, Montel Sherdon; grandchildren, Erin Davis, A’Layla Boston, Jadah Davis, Thomas Robinson, Jr., and Tomerica Robinson; great grandson, Chancellor Robinson; mother and stepfather, Mary Alice Pegues (Robert); siblings, Letha Brady, Pamela Brady, and Rodney Pegues all of Oxford, MS, Tangee Evans and Reginald Brooks (Dreka) both of Houston, TX, Paula Lawson (Johnny) of Katy, TX, and Ernest Brooks (Ashley) of Jackson, MS.
