James Raymond York, known by all that loved him as simply Jim, passed away Wednesday, June 19, 2019. Jim was born April 9, 1977 in Corsicana to parents William Lee York and Linda Rankin York. His father preceded him in death. He was a 1995 graduate of Fairfield High School. Jim was an outgoing and strong man, who never met a stranger. No matter who or where, someone always knew Jim York. He had more friends than anyone will ever know, and had literally given the shirt off his back for so many. Jim was known for his intelligence, strong opinions, hard work, love of talking, and his love for Ty over these last years. Jim fought battles in his head no one knew about, and they eventually caused him to take his own life.
He is survived by his beloved wife Jessica Ty York, his beautiful daughters, Kaitlin Newman and Addyson York; his mother and step-father, Linda Fryer and Charles Fryer; his brother Charles Wilson and wife. In lieu of flowers or half- hearted sympathies, go home and hug the ones you love. You never know when it will be the last time.

Jim and I have been best friends since jr high. We had lots of fun together and spent so much time at each other house. I could always count on him to talk or just hang out. He was like a brother to me. I will truly miss him. Jim I love you and until we meet again.

I will miss Jim so very much. He was a part of my family when he and my sons, Phillip and Ethan, were growing up together. Ethan and Jim were inseparable when they were young. He spent lots of time in our home, and I loved him like my son. He was an awesome young man and will be missed greatly.
