We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Leeside Funeral Home
Jimmy Lee Howard was born on December 14, 1953, to Walter Sanders, Jr. and the late Eloise Howard. He was born in Spartanburg, SC, was baptized at New Salem Baptist Church in Pacolet, SC and graduated from Benjamin E. Mays High School. Jimmy Lee was employed with Magna International but had to retire early due to health complications. Jimmy Lee was primarily to himself (a loner) and enjoyed watching wrestling and listening to old-school music.
Jimmy Lee's cherished memories are left to his wife, Alice Elaine Howard of the home; five sisters, Sylvia Howard of Pacolet, SC, Gwenolydn Brinson, Jacqueline Sanders, Cherrie Freeman, and Thelma Sanders all of Passaic, NJ; two brothers, Walter Randolph Sanders of New York, NY and Chubby Howard of NC; and other relatives and friends to mourn his passing.
He was preceded in death by his only son, Jimmy Decarlos Henderson.
On August 25, 2022, Jimmy Lee Howard peacefully transitioned and ceased wrestling with the cares of this world.
