James "Jim" Culberson Obituary

Jim Culberson, aged 77, a longtime resident of Yazoo City, MS, left this life on March 2, 2024. He is predeceased by his parents, Bonnie and Vera Culberson, and his brother, Dale. He leaves behind his wife of 31 years, Linda Culberson; two children, Lee Pellegrin (Ginger Callahan) of Chauvin, LA and Evangeline Zamm of Blue Ridge, GA; and one grandson, Levi Pellegrin.

Jim was born in Canton, MS in 1946, graduating from Canton High School and the University of Southern Mississippi. He worked for the Mississippi Department of Transportation for 31 years before his retirement and was a member of the First Christian Church of Vicksburg.

Jim had many interests that he enjoyed sharing with others. He began studying insects as a young boy, and that expanded to plants and wildlife. He enjoyed street rods, antique tractors, and all things mechanical. Psychology, archeology, and people fascinated him. Jim loved sharing jokes and conversation with family, friends and random strangers. He never met a cat he didn’t like, and he liked most dogs too.

A memorial service will be held at 10:30 AM on Saturday, April 13th at the First Christian Church in Vicksburg followed by an informal graveside service in the Canton Cemetery at 2:30 PM.

John 3:16 (KJV) 

For God so loved the World, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
