MJ Sims

September 12, 1994 — July 19, 2022

James Michael Sims, Jr., affectionately referred to as MJ or Brotherman by family and friends, passed July 19, 2022, in Copperas Cove, TX.  He was born on September 12, 1994, in Temple, TX to James Michael Sims and Michelle Owens Sims.  Visitation will be held at Sneed-Carnley Funeral Chapel in Lampasas, TX on Wednesday, July 27 from 12 to 2 pm.  His body will be cremated.

MJ grew up in Harker Heights, TX.  His passions in life were writing music, drawing, and rapping.  He also loved to talk and would, "Speak his truth," to anyone who would listen.  He had a brilliant smile and when you saw it you couldn't help but smile too.  He was one of a kind, and anyone lucky enough to have met him knew this.

MJ was preceded in death by his grandparents, Kandy and Billy Sims, and his grandfather, Michael Owens.

Survivors include his parents, Mike and Michelle; four sisters, Shandi Rogans, Alyssa Sacco "Yaya" and husband, Tony, Macie Sims "Sisterman" and Miranda Sims; grandmothers, Cydney Cummins and Lumduan Sims; nephew, Brayden; nieces, Kennedy, Madilyn, and Makenzie; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and bonus family who all loved him dearly.

The family would like to note that this is a casual gathering and casual attire is preferred.  If you would like, please wear purple for MJ.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to any suicide prevention charity of your choosing.  If you or anyone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts the Suicide and Crisis Hotline is available 24/7 by calling or texting 988.
