Jimmy Dean Died
Jimmy Dean, the music legend and entrepreneur passed away on Sunday, June 13, 2010 at his home outside Richmond, Va. at the age of 81. His wife, Donna Meade Dean told the Associated Press that Jimmy Dean was just sitting at home, eating and watching TV. She left the room for a little bit and when she returned, to her shock, she found him dead. Besides his wife, Jimmy Dean is survived by three children and two grandchildren, Donna Meade Dean said. Arrangements have not be made, but it will be a private service, she said.
Jimmy Dean was born in Plainview, Texas in 1928. He dropped out of high school to help support his family. After a stint in the military, Jimmy taught himself the accordion and began writing music and went to a successful career in country music, which included his own TV show, 'The Jimmy Dean Show'. Elvis Presley appeared on his show once in 1956 and Jimmy humorously recounted what a hard time he had getting anything out of Elvis other than a 'yep' or a 'nope'.
