Jimmy Clark Leggett, 82, of Trenton, Florida, loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother, passed away peacefully at Haven Hospice in Chiefland on Thursday, April 18, 2024.  Jimmy was born on September 30, 1941, in Judsonia, Arkansas, to Jennings and Roxie Leggett.  He married Patricia “Patty” Robbins on December 16, 1961, and they had three children, Greg, Damon, and Alicia.  Jimmy moved his family to Newberry, Florida in 1974, where he worked in construction and later started his own business (Leggett Construction) which thrived until he retired in 2006.  Jimmy fiercely loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them as often as possible.  He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, and gardening.
