James (Jim) Thomas Osborne, 77, passed away November 21, 2019. Jim was born in Cullman, Ala. on August 18, 1942 to Wilburn and Charlotte (Basch) Osborne who preceded him in death. He was the youngest son and one of eight children. On October 1, 1962 he married Jan (Bone) Osborne of Cullman. They have been married for fifty-seven years.
Jim was an accomplished salesman whose career promotions moved him around the country from Greenville, to Pittsburgh, to Los Angeles, and then to Atlanta where he retired as the Executive Vice President of Sales for Curtis 1000. In retirement, Jim moved back to Cullman, where he worked at various car dealerships: a hobby combining his love of people, cars, and sales.
Jim and Jan had two daughters, Jamie (Davin) Miller and Janna (Donald) Newberry. Jim was an adoring husband, loving father, and doting grandfather to nine grandkids, Bryden, Colden, Rhodes, Leighton, Gavin, Ashlyn, Aeryn, Laney and Harper.
He was an avid Auburn fan, enjoyed hunting and fishing, and loved his family. He was a true people person who never met a stranger.
He leaves to cherish his memory, his wife, Jan; his two daughters, Jamie and Janna; nine grandchildren; three brothers, Jack, Freddie, and Charles; four sisters, Jane, Marie, Helen, and Pat; and many nieces and nephews.
War Eagle!

Jan, what a shock to find this . I am saddened to hear of the passing of a man of Jim's caliber. What a friend he you were when you were in Greenville. The great times Jim and I had playing golf and just being friends. He will be missed I'm sure by many friends and family. Our prayers are with you and your family. Roger Simmons
