Jimmy Doyle Beard, 64, of Orange, passed away August 5, 2020, at home.
Born in Orange, Texas, on December 22, 1955. Jimmy worked many years as a fabricator for Inland Boatworks. He was an outdoors man who enjoyed being out on the river in his boat fishing or building new things.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
He is survived by his loving girlfriend of 15 years, Dianne Ellett; stepchildren, Austin Ellet and wife Sierra of Silsbee and Levi Ellett and wife Chasity of Orange; grandchildren, Issac Ellett, Cadence Ellett, and Avery Ellett; and loving sister, Debbie Long.
