Jim came into this world Oct. 21, 1969, to parents Janet and Ed Arrington in California. He passed on Sept. 2, 2007, into the loving arms of his sister, Karyn.

He had a great wit and sense of humor, he kept us all laughing. Jimís brother, Matt, is so lonely without him. We miss him terribly and wonder who will keep us laughing at all the things in this crazy world.

Survivors include his beloved son, Connor James Arrington; brother Matt and sister-in-law, Skye, of Bandera; nieces Rachel, Anna and Mattie; nephews Joshua, Dylan, Chazz, Mitchell and Jaxon; many aunts, uncles and cousins; his parents, Janet Arrington and Herb Tisdale of Brownwood and Ed and Pettye Arrington of Grand Prairie; stepbrother and stepsister, Rusty and LaShonda; grandparents, Dr. and Mrs. John Dunn, Mrs. Anna Arrington, and Nedra and James Russell; and many good friends.

Graveside services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, at Greenleaf Cemetery with Mr. Carol Nichols officiating. Interment will follow under the direction of Netherton Funeral Home.

The family will receive friends from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at Netherton Funeral Home.
