James B. Plummer, III
BOSSIER CITY, LA – James “Jay” B. Plummer, III passed away at his home on August 7, 2016. Services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, August 12, 2016 at First United Methodist Church of Bossier, 201 John Wesley Blvd. Interment will follow at Hill Crest Memorial Park in Haughton. Visitation will be Thursday, August 11, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Hill Crest Memorial Funeral Home.
He was born in Shreveport, LA on June 13, 1953. He is a graduate of Parkway High School, the University of Louisiana-Monroe where he received a BA in Criminal Justice, and Louisiana Tech University where he attained a MA in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. Jay initially followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the Bossier City Police Department. He later became a Special Agent with Union Pacific Railroad and retired as one of the most decorated agents in the history of the organization. After retirement, he returned to City of Bossier employment accepting the position of Director of Human Resources, where he stayed until ALS forced him to retire.
Jay loved sports and the outdoors – hunting, fishing, and competitive shooting. Some of his best times were spent at the hunting club founded by his parents. The common denominator in pursuits that Jay enjoyed were people. Any activity that brought together friends, family, and loved ones is one where you’d be sure to find Jay.
Jay was preceded in death by his parents, James B. Jr. and Martha Plummer.
He is survived by wife Diane Plummer; children Jayme Plummer, James B. Plummer, IV, Joshua Rambo and wife Megan, and Jessica Bell and fiancé Scott Robertson; grandchildren, Braeden and Brooklyn Bell and Rebecca Rambo; brothers, Paul “Mac” Plummer and wife Janet and Kenneth Plummer and fiancé Jo Campbell, as well as nieces, nephews and friends.
Pallbearers will be Billy “Bubba” Barefield, Glenn “Skinny” Grannan, Paul Miller, Rodney Oar, Jimmy Hall, Joe Buffington, Kirk Armitage, and John Thompson.
The family would like to thank Dr. Tivakaran, Dr. Milligan, Dr. Noles, Dr. Stanley Appel and Dr. Erik Pioro for the care they have shown.
