James Dean Reddick

March 7, 1963 — August 12, 2023


Mr. James Dean Reddick, “Jimmy”, 60, passed away Saturday, August 12, 2023, at Memorial Hospital in Savannah, Georgia with his loving wife by his side.

Jimmy was born in Savannah, Georgia on March 7, 1963, to the late Bobby and Linda Reddick. Many knew him as “Tater” as he inherited that nickname as a kid. At the age of 15, he owned his very own convenient store at Goshen called “Tater’s Country Store”. He worked for many years in the construction business, where he met many special friends including Mike & Laura Jenkins, Darnell & David Callahan, Jack Carter, and Cliff Yawn. Jimmy had a big sense of humor and an even bigger heart. He loved to make people laugh and was always willing to help anyone in any way he could. Above all, Jimmy loved his family, and he will be missed greatly by all who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Bobby and Linda Reddick; daughter, Jessa Reddick Crews; brother, Bobby Reddick, Jr.; and brother-in-law, Sonny Thames.

Survivors include: his loving wife of 7 years, Teresa Fail Reddick; daughter, Jena Reddick; son, Daniel Reddick; sister, Angie Thames; six grandchildren, Danielle Reddick, Matthew Reddick, Mariah Reddick, Brianna Reddick, Camren Reddick, and Jaxen Ryals; a very close and special friend, Denise D. Reddick-Doss; brother-in-law, Ronnie Fail; and mother-in-law, Jennie Fail.
