Clifford James Wohlgemuth (2-27-1947 / 11-28-2022) Born to Clifford James Wohlgemuth Sr and Dollye Rosena Wilder Wohlgemuth of Jackson Mississippi. Jimmy attended elementary school, junior high school, and high school in Jackson Mississippi. He graduated with an Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Mississippi class of 1970. He started his career working for Gulf Power, Southern Company straight out of college and retired from Gulf Power working for the company as an electrical engineer for 40 years. In 1976, Jimmy married Guynel Echols Wohlgemuth. In July they would have celebrated 46 years of marriage. Jimmy and Guynel have two children, Matthew (Kelly,Liam,Lily)Nelson, who live in Smyrna GA, and Leah (Jason, Wyatt,Levi,Ryleigh) Peacock who live in Hiram GA and a Niece Angie Echols who lives in Kennesaw GA. Jimmy is survived by one younger brother John Thomas Wohlgemuth Jackson Mississippi. In 2018 Jimmy and Guynel relocated from their home of 40 plus years in Gulf Breeze, FL to a new home in Dallas GA. This move allowed them to enjoy their children and grandchildren being nearby. Jimmy and Guynel were members of East Brent Baptist Church in Pensacola, FL for almost 30 years before moving to Georgia. Jimmy enjoyed several service ministries at EBBC. Some included third and fourth grade AWANA Boys on Wednesday nights and Vacation Bible School as a daily Bible teacher of 6th graders for a week for many summers. Another service duty he enjoyed greatly was being a ‘greeter’ to folks as they entered one of the doors on Sunday morning worship services. Jimmy also served and enjoyed several mission trips, student ministry trips and children’s summer camp as a counselor with fellow EBBC members. Jimmy was always glad to do any electrical projects needed on the mission trips where construction work was involved. Another time Jimmy enjoyed with EBBC was being a part of the CHRISTmas pagent, always being the tallest wiseman. Jimmy also served as a weekly volunteer at the Washburn Homeless Shelter in Pensacola. His duty at the homeless shelter was to oversee the laundry room facility that the clients of the shelter used. Guynel said she teased him about that position since he wasn’t familiar with the laundry location at their house. He was friends with the shelter clients each week and he shined the light of Jesus as he facilitated the use of the washers and dryers made available to the clients at the homeless shelter. Another service Jimmy did was mentor young boys at various elementary schools who needed help with their math. Jimmy loved math. Most of these boys came to Jimmy by recommendation of their teacher, as needing adult interaction and math help. He delighted in seeing these young boys on a regular basis, working on their math comprehension and skills as well as talking life with them and helping with anything he could for them. And this was something everyone who knew Jimmy knew, he would attempt to fix anything. “Don’t toss anything until I try and fix it”. And more times than not he did succeed at fixing and repairing it. But, at the top of Jimmy activities was his prayer time with his Lord. There is a pad of paper with several pages of names that Jimmy faithfully prayed for and talked to the Lord about daily. Since his retirement, the length of time he could spend in prayer increased. There are so many folks who have been so faithful to pray for Jimmy thru this health journey. Words are inadequate expressing our thanks but THANK YOU faithful prayer warriors! Jimmy’s battle with cancer began IN 2004 experiencing three different types of cancer and many great physicians with many treatments. Jimmy was a strong man with strong faith. God has been ever-present and was with Jimmy especially through his health journey. Jimmy remained hopeful and at peace continually. Jimmy is more alive now than he ever was on this earth. Praise God for His promises and blessings abundant.
Funeral service will be 11 AM Saturday, December 3, 2022 at Rose Lawn Funeral Home in Gulf Breeze, FL.
