Jimmy Wayne Caldwell, age 80, of the Hardin Community near Pine Bluff passed away Wednesday, May 13, 2020.

Born September 11, 1939 at Pine Bluff, he was a son of the late Lee Otis Caldwell and Inez Duncan Caldwell Taylor.

Jim was a carman for the Cotton Belt, Southern Pacific, and Union Pacific Railroads. He retired on April 12, 2001 after 41 years of service.

He was a member of Hardin Baptist Church and was a proud veteran of the United States Navy and the Arkansas National Guard.

“Catfish” was a mentor to young people and friend who was loved by many, whom he considered a part of his family.

In addition to his parents, Jim was predeceased by two sisters, Dianne Smith and Joyce Elmore; and a brother, Everett Caldwell.

Survivors include his wife of 60 years, Jeanne Allred Caldwell, who he married on April 1, 1960 at Central Baptist Church in Pine Bluff; two children, Regina Weeks and husband Roger, and Phillip Caldwell; a brother, Dewey Caldwell; along with five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Graveside services will be held Monday, May 18, 2020, 10:30 a.m. at Memorial Park Cemetery with Brother Johnny Taylor officiating. The family will greet friends following the service. Arrangements are by Fuller Hale-South Funeral Services.

We will observe the most recent Covid-19 Guidelines, observe social distancing, and ask that you bring and wear your own mask.

The service will be webcast live on where you may leave typed or video remembrances to the family.
