Armando was born in Cutzamala de Pinzon, Guerrero, Mexico on June 17, 1951 to Epigmenio Jaimes and Catalina Perez. He was one of 10 children.
He came to the United States as a young man and worked in many jobs before settling in Altus in 1994. He was currently a Foreman at the Martha Co-op and had been there for over 15 years. Armando was a hard worker and enjoyed working. He was not a procrastinator, when there was something that needed to be done, he wanted to get it taken care of immediately. When he wasnt on the job, he was working in his yard and garden. He looked forward to his days off so he could be home to cook for his family and friends. His specialty was barbecuing. Armando was well known for being an understanding, well humored man. He was a loving father and caring husband. He was a wonderful man on the inside and out which showed his kindness in his everyday life. He has many friends and family who loved him and will miss him greatly.
