Jimmy Mule Death, Obituary – Today marks the passing of Bonefire, a beloved figure in the folk music community and an Abingdon institution. In the early hours of today, Jimmy “Mule” Repass was taken from this world. Accidentally cutting his head open, he sustained a hemorrhage on the brain as a result. When he suddenly went away, we had the sense that he was making headway toward recovering when in fact he had abruptly passed away. Even if he was more entertaining than the rest of my family, I still considered of him as my uncle since through the years we had formed a bond and I thought of him as my related.
Jimmy will be remembered for his enthusiastic performance in front of the stage whenever a rocking band played at the restaurant where he worked. He thought the tempo at which bluegrass was played was too slow. He wore hand-crafted jewelry all the time that was so ostentatious and showy that it would have made Elvis Presley and Liberace green with jealousy. The vast majority of people were unaware that he manufactured all of his accessories on his own. Everything he owned was customized, from the sunglasses he wore to the canes and walking sticks that were made just for him.
His rings and brooches were extremely sought among the Bonefire clientele, and he frequently gave them to attractive ladies as presents because he thought they would like them. Jimmy was an extremely one-of-a-kind person, and we will unquestionably miss having him here with us at the end of the bar. Jimmy did not partake in drinking, therefore while deciding where to sit at the party, he took into consideration how near he would be to the bandstand. We won’t soon forget his infectious grin and smooth moves on the dance floor. RIP, Mule. On the other side, we shall dust ourselves off and start dancing once more.
