Jimmy and his family moved to Charleston, SC in 1974. He attended Stratford high School and graduated in 1990. He joined the United States Navy in 1992 and served for five years.

Upon completing his military tour and receiving an honorable discharge, Jimmy resided in Virginia Beach, VA for many, many years. He was the manager of the Ocean Mystique Jewelry store in Virginia Beach, VA.

In June of 2012, he relocated to Honolulu, Hawaii, where he attended Windward Community College, pursing a degree in Marine Science.

Jimmy was an adventurous and loving person. He was an excellent gourmet cook and loved entertaining friends. He never met a stranger and always greeted everyone with a pleasant smile and a soft voice. He was a free spirited person who loved the ocean and all of the aquatic activities therein.

His memory is cherished by his loving mother, Beverly Comer Hargrow, brother; William “Bill” Hargrow, Jr, Columbus, OH, Three aunts; Barbara Clarke, Marietta, GA, Sandy Yarborough, Columbus, OH, Ollie Lawson, Atlanta, GA, one grandaunt; Virigina Mathias (Gene), Shaker Heights, OH, two uncles; Charles D. Comer, Kalamazoo, MI and Sylvester Hargrow, Columbus, OH; and a host of cousins and many, many friends.

We will miss James “Jimmy” Douglas Hargrow, his smile and his love of life. To all he would simply say: “It is what it is and I love you more!”

    You were part of a special group of friends I had growing up in the neighborhood of Foxborough and you truly will be missed. You and your family always treated me as family growing up – you were the definition of a “True Friend”

    I love you brother and I know you are in a better place now – you will never be forgotten.

    Dear Cousin:

    I made a promise to Aunt Peg that I was going to come see you but you went so fast and I did not make it in time. I am so sorry I wasn’t a better cousin. I love you because you are closest in age to me. I am so sorry you got sick. Rest In Peace.
