Jimmy was born to the late James E. and Mary Lee (Stephens) Salyer on January 13, 1961, in Winchester, TN. He went on to grow up and live in the Michiana area where he worked as a skilled mechanic and QC operator . Jimmy married the love of his life, Deborah “Debbie” Preissing, in South Bend. Together they shared many years as soulmates and best friends.

Jimmy was an avid bowler and joined many different leagues over the years at Beacon Bowl and Regal Lanes. It was at Beacon Bowl while playing in a mixed league that he met Debbie, and it was there after some time dating that she asked him to marry her over the intercom. He also enjoyed music and loved to sing.  He spent time with his extended family members singing bluegrass gospel music. One of the songs he loved to sing was “Dream Weaver,” and Deb fondly called him her Dreamer.
