James “Jimmy” Hartley Skaggs, 73, of Campbellsville, Kentucky, son of the late Hartley Skaggs and Bertie White Skaggs, was born June 29th, 1948, in Green County and departed this life on Thursday, December 23rd, 2021, at UK Bluegrass Hospice Care Center in Lexington, Kentucky.
Jimmy united in marriage to Beverley Corbett Skaggs on April 17th, 1971, who survives.
He professed his faith in Christ and was a member of South Campbellsville Baptist Church. He was a wonderful, loving husband and father. Jimmy worked as a mechanic and was a former employee at Firestone and Advance Auto in Campbellsville. In his spare time, he loved working with wood. One piece of advice he left for any man getting married was “always say yes ma’am and no ma’am and know when to say it.”

One daughter and son-in-law: Kimberley Farmer and her husband, Billy, of Campbellsville.
