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.

Friends are welcome to attend the graveside committal held at the church cemetery following the service at 1:45 PM.
