James "Jim" Stovall

March 26, 1944 — June 4, 2023

Arlington, Tennessee

James “Jim” Stovall, age 79, resident of Arlington, Tennessee, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, June 4, 2023.

Jim was born March 26, 1944 in Memphis, Tennessee. He attended Whitehaven High School, Northwest Junior College in Senatobia, Mississippi and Mississippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi. He was an outstanding football player at all three schools and he followed his Mississippi State Bulldogs with great pride! Jim was a natural-born salesman in a way that made people buy whatever he was selling. His words were all it took and his honesty never questioned. His dry sense of humor never left him and he could always make you smile. Jim loved his family deeply and his country but above all, he loved his Lord, Savior, Jesus Christ. His faith never wavered.

Jim is survived by his loving wife, Jo; his son, Larry St. Clair, Jr. (Angela); two daughters, Laura Munnerlyn (Gary) and Teresa Davis (Bruce); two sisters, Adelaide Ashmore and Birdie Haire; his grandson, Connor St. Clair; and two granddaughters, Samantha and Jenny Davis.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Edgar and Alice Stovall; his brother, Eddie Stovall; and his twin brother, Johnny Stovall.

A visitation for Jim will be held from 10 A.M. to 12 noon Monday, June 12, 2023 at Faith Baptist Church in Arlington. Funeral Services will be at 12 noon Monday, June 12, 2023 at Faith Baptist Church in Arlington with Bro. Brian Carlisle officiating. Special music will be provided by Ben Kirk, soloist.
