Jimmy was described as a delight and a pleasure to be around and his youthful, almost ever-present grin ensured those in his company suddenly saw their lives in a different light.

He grew up on a farm in Glenmoriston. After leaving the farm, Jimmy ran a petrol station in Fort Augustus with his brother, [name witheld], before branching out on his own, first with a filling station in Aviemore and then another in Fort William, where he met his wife, [name witheld]. Jimmy and Fiona opened several businesses together, including: Signature, a clothing store in Eastgate; Girvan's, a restaurant in Inverness; and Riva's, a pizzeria in Inverness.
