James Allen Reeves was born in Louisville, KY on February 23, 1947, and passed away on April 30, 2022. He was known as Jimmy to his family and close friends, of which there were many. Jimmy valued friendship and maintained relationships across the country for decades.

Jimmy earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Western Kentucky University and his Master of Arts degree in Film Studies from the University of Louisville. He was a tutor and free-lance teacher for many years.

Jimmy loved travel, which took him all over Europe and all over the United States. He lived in San Francisco, Portland, Oregon, and New York before returning to Louisville, Ky and eventually making a home with Keith McGill, his partner of 30 years.
