He was born on October 20, 1932, in Warrenton, to the late Mason and Lucy Mae Green Strother.

After graduation in 1950 from Warrenton High School, he attended the College of William and Mary and was a member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. Jimmy served in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict and upon discharge went to work for the National Security Agency. He left that to become the manager of the Culpeper Farmer’s Cooperative store in Warrenton until his retirement after 37 years of service. He was a member of the former Warrenton/Fauquier Jaycees and an active supporter of 4-H and FFA in and around Fauquier County. He was a charter member of the Orlean Volunteer Fire Company. He was a fan of the Redskins and enjoyed working on his farm near Orlean.

He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Sally McClanahan Strother; his daughter and her husband, Jill Strother Mitchell and Jim Mitchell; a son-in-law, Larry Czarda; his sister, Pat Morrow Sharer; his grandchildren, Jimmy Czarda, Cliff (Paula) Czarda and Stephen Czarda, Charlie Mitchell and Samantha Mitchell; his great granddaughter, Emma Czarda, and two nieces, Helen Worst and Laura Duziak.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two daughters, Patricia Landon Czarda and Sharon Kay Strother, an infant.

The family will receive friends from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4, when the service will begin at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. A private interment will follow at Warrenton Cemetery at a later date.
