James Lowell Sloan, Jr.

On January 30, 2021, James “Jimmy” Lowell Sloan Jr. went to be with his Lord and Savior. Jimmy was born on June 10, 1954 in Greensboro to James Lowell Sloan Sr. and Frances Comer Sloan. He was an avid hunter, golfer and outdoorsman. Jimmy loved to stay busy and work outside. He retired after 30 years of service from the City of Greensboro Parks & Recreation Department, and also enjoyed many years of farming and landscaping. Jimmy never met a stranger and greeted everyone with a smile. He worked hard and was always there to lend a helping hand. Jimmy was a loving husband and father, but was best known as “Paw Paw”. His favorite times were spent riding with his “grandbabies” on his outdoor equipment. Jimmy was known by many and loved by all. He will be dearly missed. Jimmy was greeted in heaven by his parents, his loving sister, Karen Sue Pegram and his faithful dog, Charlie. Those left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 48 years, Mickey Busick Sloan; daughter, Jennifer Lori Van’t Wout (Chris); son, James “Jamey” Lowell Sloan III (Christin); grandchildren, McKinley Sloan, India and Ziggy Van’t Wout; nieces Stefani Pegram (Henry), Stacie Pegram (Bryant), Amanda Troxler; nephews Trey Early, Russell Early, Michael Troxler; as well as a large and loving group of extended family and friends. The family will celebrate Jimmy's life at a private memorial service on Thursday, February 4, 2021 at 1:00 PM at Monticello United Church of Christ with Rev. Greg Bouck officiating. Friends are welcome to attend the graveside committal held at the church cemetery following the service at 1:45 PM. All may come by Wilkerson Funeral Home in Reidsville to honor Jimmy on Wednesday, February 3, 2021 from 9 AM until 5 PM. The family kindly asks that everyone wear masks and maintain a safe distance. Please share your thoughts and memories of Jimmy with the family at www.wilkersonfuneral.com. Memorial donations can be made to Monticello United Church of Christ, 5001 NC-150, Browns Summit, NC 27214, and/or to the PAN Foundation which helps patients afford the life-saving medications and treatments they need. www.panfoundation.org.

I want to share my condolences with the entire Sloan family. Jimmy will be greatly missed. I have worked for Jimmy and Jamey for the last five years, off and on. Jimmy always had a warm heart, a smile on his face and a great story to tell. I learned a lot from Jimmy in and out of the work place. He will always be an inspiration to me. He never stopped going or fighting and despite his battle he was always in high spirits. I am blessed that I got to have this wonderful man in my life. Much love Jimmy may God rest your soul.

I am so sorry to hear about Jimmy's death. So many memories of high school, working together at the City, hunting and more. I am sorry I couldn't be there to speak to all the family in person. He's enjoying hunting in heaven now and seeing his family gone before him! I know you will all miss him so much! Stuart Welborn
