James Odis Harrison

April 4, 1967 — January 21, 2024

James Odis "Jimbo" Harrison, 56,  died unexpectedly from years of sickness on January 21, 2024, at Riverview Rehabilitation Center. He was born on April 4, 1967, in  Natchez, MS, the only son of William James Harrison and Sarah Bryant Culpepper. On September 18, 1992,  Jimbo married the love of his life, the woman who took care of him through all his years of sickness, Doris Lay Harrison.  He retired medically in 2005 that prevented him from driving his 18-wheelers that he loved to do.  Jimbo was a member of Temple Lodge #448 in Bossier City, LA.  He loved to tinker on anything that needed to be fixed, even if it didn't need to be, he would still work on it. He loved to keep his hands busy and hated to sit around and do nothing.

  Jimbo loved to play with his grand babies and ride his scooter around wherever they went. He loved watching them grow, and will continue to watch over them as they grow older.  His grandchildren were his pride and joy and they could do no wrong.  He was a lover of fishing and went every chance that he was able.  His newfound love the last few years was going on random road trips with his wife and family.

Jimbo is preceded in death by his father William James Harrison, and mother Sarah Bryant Culpepper, and mother-in-law Susie Lay.  

Jimbo is survived by his wife of 33 years, Doris Lay Harrison of Bossier City, LA, two children, son, James Marshall Harrison of Bossier City, LA, daughter, Katelyn Cassel and spouse, John Cassel of Benton, LA, daughter-in-law, Whitney Harrison of DeBerry, TX, 3 granddaughter, Allison Grace Imken, Kennedy Faith and McKenzie Grace Cassel, and the only grandson, James Corbin Harrison. He also had his "second mom" Denise Mitchell of Beaumont, TX.  He is also survived by numerous friends and family Members, including his "brothers" Loyd Guyans of Benton, LA and Danny Weems of Haughton, LA.

The family would like to thank these amazing facilities and staffs of Fresenius Pierremont for the numerous years of dialysis treatment that they helped him with, Fresenius Viking Drive for the care they showed him over the year they had him with treatments, Northwest Nephrology  Dr. Rokaw and Dr. Barz, the nurses of Willis Knighton North on 2 North and 2 West for the loving care, support,  and compassion they showed , and Dr Beedupalli for taking care of his heart and helping him make it this far in life.
