After graduation, he married Barbara Bagwell in October 1969. Together they had three children, Larry, Karla, and Jason, that he was always so proud of. In 1983 Jimmy married Nancy Johnson and gained two stepchildren that he loved dearly, Darrell and Angela McIntosh. Jimmy worked construction and operated heavy machinery, he worked for Latimer County Barn in Buffalo Valley, where he made many good friends. He was always known for getting in everyone's lunch boxes and helping himself to some lunch, mostly the sweets. Jimmy enjoyed hunting (and poaching a few deer), one of the many traits he passed on to his son Larry. He took Larry hunting on Buffalo Mountain on countless occasions, legally, and this is where Larry killed his first deer. Jimmy also loved to dance, he would two-step with Karla at the street dance when a street dance was an actual street dance. Jimmy loved to laugh and pull jokes on people. He bought Jason a go-cart and first time Jason drove it he went right under the truck, then bought him a bb-gun, which Jason shot Karla in the eye with through a window. Jason never got in trouble, dad would always say, "leave him alone he is just a baby" Jimmy leaves behind his three children: son Larry and wife Tayna Burks of Talihina, OK, daughter Karla and husband Kris Holland of Talihina, OK, and son Jason Carl Burks of McAlester, OK, stepdaughter, Angela and husband Brian Johnson of Talihina, OK, grandsons: Zachary Burks of Elmore City, OK, Colton VanHorn of McAlester, OK, Jayton and Jaxton Burks of McAlester, OK, Dalton McIntosh of Talihina, OK, Darrell Johnson of Talihina, OK, granddaughters: Haley Burks Jennings of Elmore City, OK, Oakley Burks of Talihina, OK, Dayton and Khloe Holland of Talihina, OK, Jaycee Burks of McAlester, OK, Chelsea Holland of AR, and Kailee Daney of Talihina, OK great grandchildren: Elena VanHorn, Bryson Lanning, Adalynn Holland, Laree and Bryson McIntosh.
