The Master Plumber

James Richard Girtmon, the son of  the late Richard Girtmon and Pearlie Brandon, made his descension into this world on August 16, 1945. On October 15, 2023, James Richard Girtmon, Sr. made his ascension from this world to join those who had gone on before including James Girtmon, Jr., James Johnson, Dewanda Wright, and  his sister, Aristean Girtmon-Fields.

James Richard Girtmon, Sr. was the first  African American Master Plumber in Morehouse Parish in 1969. As was the tradition he passed his trade down to the next generation.

He enjoyed watching westerns, hunting, and fishing.

Gardner Girtmon; his children: Lashay "Tootie" Girtmon- Bastrop, LA, Paxton (Catina) Girtmon-Flowood, MS, Paisha (Kenneth) Girtmon-Dacula, GA, Chadwick (Zowanda) Girtmon - Lake Charles, LA, Alejandro (Leateasha)Girtmon-Henderson, NV, and a sister, Pearlie B.
