Jimmie Leland Lightsey (1939-1986)
On May 26, 1986, the aquatic weed control industry lost a close friend with the passing away of Jimmie Leland Lightsey. Jimmie Leland was a long time, dedicated member of the Aquatic Weed Control Program at the Okeechobee Field Station Division of the South Florida Water Management District. He joined the District in January 1968, and worked under the Aquatic Weed program until his death. We extend our sympathy to his wife, Fay, and his family.
