James Edward Lusk Sr

January 3, 1956 ~ July 16, 2021 (age 65)

Tribute

James (Jimmy) Lusk passed away on Friday, July 16 at the age of 65. He is survived by an older brother, William Lusk married to Elia Lusk and an older sister, Lynn Galliano married to Martin Galliano.

The greatest joy of his life was his family. Jimmy married Linda in 1978 and they have been inseparable since that time. His son James Jr was born 5 years later then a daughter Amanda in 1987. To just say he was proud of his now grown children would be an understatement. He was a father who was present in all activities of his children’s younger lives from education, sports (soccer, basketball, baseball), dance, gymnastics, and cheerleading. As adults his children sought his advice on many topics. Jimmy recently retired from Outfront Media after 43 years of dedicated service. He was excited to spend more time with his (3) grandchildren Austin 8, Landon 5 and Jolene 15 months. They knew Paw Paw could fix anything and turn an ordinary wagon in to the best Halloween vehicle around.

His favorite vacation spots were the Great Smokey Mountains and the Alabama/Florida coastline.

If you would like to do something in memory of Jimmy, the family would appreciate a donation to M D Anderson in Houston or Children's Hospital in New Orleans.

The attire for Jimmy’s services is casual just like the man.
