Jimmie Wayne Maggard, 63, passed away Sunday, October 8, 2017.  Born April 27, 1954, in Hazard, KY, he was the son of the late Jimmie Maggard and Irene Maggard who survives.

A man who loved and lived life to the absolute maximum, he will definitely be remembered as an “avid adventurist,” especially enjoying traveling and hunting.  Indeed, his vehicle license plate contains a phrase that aptly describes his motto for life, “Living My Dreams One Day at a Time.”  Also, he was employed at Borden Dairy before his retirement in 2016, and began working with his nephew, Jim Ed Harris, at Step Ahead Mail Service.

In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by a brother, Randel Ray Maggard and a brother-in-law, Gary Keith Harris.

He leaves behind his soulmate, Mary Powell; two sisters: Iris Afterkirk and husband Don, and Brenda Harris; a brother, Gary Maggard; four nephews: Jim Ed Harris, Jonathan Wade Harris, Chris Afterkirk, and Gary Lynn Maggard; and two nieces: Rene Afterkirk and Jessica Maggard.  He is also survived by great nieces and nephews, other relatives, and numerous friends.  

Funeral services will be held at 7:00 P.M. Thursday, October 12, 2017, in the Hart Funeral Home Chapel with Bro. Frank Vanzant officiating.  

The family will receive friends from 4 – 7 P.M. Thursday at Hart Funeral Home, located at 1011 Master Street in Corbin.

    I just read about the recent death of Jimmie and I know Mary and the Maggard family and loved ones have saddened hearts today. So I wanted to share beautiful scripture where our heavenly father, Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18), promises us that he is going to do away with man’s greatest enemy, death. Rev. 21: 4; “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: “And no resident will say “I am sick,” ever again. God’s kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises, including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25) Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: “is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago.” Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will live……And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it.” For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. John 17:3 Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalm 34:18 It is my prayer this scripture will give you comfort in your grief. If you feel up to contacting me, my email address is: myranj@centurytel.net
