Jimmie Lee Brisendine


Jimmie Lee Brisendine was born in Paris, TN on April 26th 1939 to Florence and Fred Brisendine. He enjoyed sunrises and God and his family. After retiring from being a dental technician he spent his days at coffee shops making friends and talking about the God that he loved. Jim is survived by his loving and devoted wife Shannon with whom he shared a stunning love. He also leaves behind his five children: Michael Brisendine(Michelle), Kristy Hampton(Rich), Nathan Brisendine, Stephen Brisendine(Erin) and Alicia Odhiambo(Jeff). He is also survived by 11 grandchildren. He will be fondly remembered and mourned by his many friends and family. He was always quick to discuss God’s Word with anyone who showed an interest. He is also mourned by his dog Zoe and cat Cali whom he loved. Jim will be dearly missed by all who loved him. He lived a full and passionate life and passed at age 82.


A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday Nov 20, 2021 from 4pm -7pm at Cafe Latte @ the Jackson 139 W. Peoria Street, Paola, KS 66071.

    I will miss Jim so very much. He was a spiritual mentor and enjoyed his teachings during the Sunday morning bible studies. Jim was a one of a kind and feel blessed that we crossed paths in this life. He may now be gone, but will never be forgotten.

    I will miss Jim more than anyone could know. I considered him my spiritual mentor, someone I could joke with and am so very proud to say that he was my friend. I will miss him leading us in our Sunday morning bible studies where I felt blessed and privileged that he shared his teachings with me. I know he is now rejoicing in the presence of our Lord and Savior that he loved so much and shared with many. Jim will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.

    As each day passes, I am remiss with all of the conversations and theological explorations we were unable to bring forth. His fondness of elucidating his beliefs and his strong passion to boldly proclaim them always brought a smile to my heart.

    He was filled with fire for the truth like few that can be found. We all know that he now knows all the answers to all the questions he has ever had.

    Jim, I feel lucky to have had you as a friend.

    Jim was alway so amazing when I would visit him and Shannon. I was actually just thinking about them today. Without Jim I wouldn’t of gotten my first tractor. I still use it running around my farm. Shannon I know this is a hard time that you know I am there if you need anything. Love you

    Shannon I know you will miss him something fierce. I remember all the times we got together and had a peck of fun & laughter. He would go out of his way to help me out with moving furniture or bringing ice for the knee pain. He knew how to do anything around the house. I even have a crown in my mouth he made. What a guy!!! See you at the coffee shop.

    He was such a wonderful Christian man and a great friend! We are assured that he, Oh and Rick are together with Jesus now! Along with our other Christian brothers and sisters who have gone to glory!
