James W. “Jimmy” Coburn, 51, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his wife and family at 11:54 a.m. on Saturday, October 8, 2022.
He was born in Plymouth, Indiana on August 20, 1971, to Janice E. (Nice) and Kelly Coburn. Jimmy graduated from Warsaw High School with the class of 1989 and went on to get his associate’s degree in business science from Ivy Tech College.
On September 22, 2018, in Mishawaka, Indiana, Jimmy married Shonda R. Robbins.
Jimmy was a truck driver for Hoosier Racing Tire in Lakeville.
He was born with the gift of music and a lot of his talent was self-taught, from the drums and piano to the guitar, and he enjoyed sharing his love of music with others. He was passionate about playing bass in the band High Five, long rides on his Harley, and spending time with great friends.
Jimmy had a smile that lit up the room. He was stubborn, strong-willed, and liked doing this “his way”, as he thought he was never wrong. He had a loving heart and deep love for his family.
He is survived by his wife, Shonda, and their children: Bianca, Troy, Trent, Dakota, Savannah, and Xander; grandchildren Carson and Asher; his mother Janice (John Gaines) Moore Gaines of Plymouth; his sisters Debra (Steve) Keen of LaPaz and Barbara Sommers of Plymouth; stepsiblings: Terry (Jim) Thompson, Charles Moore, and Sandra Williams; many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles as well as many close and lifelong friends and extended Tirotta family.
Jimmy was preceded in death by his father Kelly; his stepfather Charles Moore: his brother Kelly William Coburn; his half-sister Kellie Jean Warner; maternal grandparents Maxine and James Nice and paternal grandparents Elizabeth and Jim Varney.
Visitation will be held on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, from 4-6 p.m. at Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home, 1100 N. Michigan Street, Plymouth. Funeral services will immediately follow at 6 p.m. with Rev. John Perkinson officiating.
A Celebration of Jimmy’s Life will also be held at a later date.
