 Funeral Service at Hart-Wyatt Funeral Home Chapel, Walters, Friday, April 22 at 1:00 p.m., Rev. Kent Simpson Officiating with interment at Highland Cemetery, Lawton, OK. 

Jimmy Dawn “Bimbo” Sabo was born to Tammy Reed and Joe Cordell on April 5, 1989 at Comanche Co. Memorial Hospital, Lawton, OK and departed this life at Lawton on April 16, 2016.

Jimmy grew up playing football, soccer, basketball and baseball in elementary and continued with football through his freshman year of high school. He was a huge sports fan who loved watching the Denver Broncos and the Oklahoma City Thunder play ball. He also enjoyed playing football and basketball with his friends at home anytime. He was beloved by all his friends and family, like his grandmother Barbel Cordell, his sister Brittany Barton and her three kids Bryson, Nathan, and Jeyleen and his other sister Jamie Bert and her daughter Sophia. Growing up he enjoyed playing with his brother Scott Collignon and sister Camber Collignon, cousins Mac and Joshua Sabo, Johnathan Swain, and close friends, Stephen Gath, Joseph Harding, Casey Shell and so many more.

Greg Collignon, the husband to Tammy Reed’s first marriage, helped raise Jimmy as one of his own since he was 8 months old. Greg introduced Jimmy to one of his life passions, computers. They spent hours together teaching Jimmy about them. Jimmy would later find work in it and help anyone who had trouble fixing them.

Greg Collignon’s mom and grandmother to Jimmy, Gerry Cancienne was a school teacher and always had plenty to teach him when he was a toddler. Although Jimmy lived 8 hours away later in life, that didn’t matter to Gerry. She always wanted to know how he was doing and celebrated his birthday and holidays every year. Although Greg and Tammy divorced, like Gerry, they all continued to support Jimmy, from Ty and Staci Collignon, Blake and Michelle Collignon, Allison Collignon and his cousins, Marcy, Kevin, James, Caitlyn, Ashley, Sarah and Jake. 

Mike Reed, the husband of Tammy, had gotten to know Jimmy over the past 8 years. Mike was adored, respected and loved by Jimmy who he taught the importance of hard work and responsibility. Mike was an important father figure to Jimmy and everyone knew it. 

His rock, his best friend and mother, Tammy Reed was his most cherished guardian. She was always there for him, from changing diapers, to sports games as a kid, to doing his laundry. That’s how his entire family was because he was so beloved. He would talk to his grandmother Barbara Day for hours at a time. He would help anyone who needed a favor, from his aunts Bonnie, Linda, Joellen, and Holly, to his uncles, Rick and John. He would always enjoy a good laugh, especially when it came to picking on his cousins, Mikey, Brandon, Jennifer, Kyle, Adrieonna, Johnathon, Keith, Amanda, Joshua, Mac, Nicole, Marina, and little John.

Jimmy Sabo was a family man, which was the most important thing to him. As a kid he was troublesome and always breaking a rule with his friends or stepbrother, Brandon Salas. He took those lessons to heart later as a man and spread those lessons to anyone who would listen. He kept his family and friends close, from his siblings Scott and Camber Collignon, Jake, Holly and Patra Reed and her daughter Andy Grace, to his close friends such as Jerry and Pam Tolliver, Kim Seifert, Megan Lageson and Terry Stine. He will always be loved and missed by everyone he touched!
