James Wista Andrews III
James Wista Andrews III, Jimmy, 64, of Kountze, left us on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. He was born on August 29, 1957, in Beaumont to Marian Ann Richardson and James Wista Andrews, Jr.
Jimmy spent his entire career in Industrial Sales and, true to his character, remained loyal to the same office for over 45 years of service. Like most, he entered into the industry working in the warehouse, but through hard work and determination, he finished his career as a mentor to the team as it has generationally changed and an owning partner of BK Industrial Solutions.
During his free time and early stages of retirement, Jimmy was an avid outdoorsman who thoroughly enjoyed hunting and fishing. In recent years, Jimmy and Darlene moved out of the city and into rural communities where they found a new passion for farm life.
Surviving immediate family includes his wife of 40 years, Darlene Ann Andrews; sons, Chris Andrews and his wife, Sara, of Kountze; Jon Andrews and his wife, Lyndsay, of Lumberton; and Ronnie Howard and his wife, Kerry, of Pearland; grandchildren Paisley, Jack, Collins, Tate, Cade and Reed; brother, Richard Andrews and his wife, Veronica, and son Richard Andrews Jr of Beaumont; as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Jimmy is preceded in death by his parents, James Jr and Marian Andrews.
Memorial contributions may be made to Lifeshare Blood Center; 4305 Laurel Avenue, Beaumont.
A gathering of Jimmy’s family and friends will be from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m., Saturday, September 25, 2021, at Broussard’s, 2000 McFaddin Avenue, Beaumont. Cremation arrangements were handled through Broussard’s Crematorium, under the direction of Broussard’s, 2000 McFaddin Avenue, Beaumont.
