Texoma lost an incredible musician Wednesday morning, December 26, 2018. Born James Divine, some musicians called him the Blues Man, others titled him Mr. Strat, but most knew him as Jimi.
He played the United States with his unique style influenced by his heroes Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy and of course Jimi Hendrix. Jimi Divine had an impact on many in the Wichita Falls music community, whether he was rocking the stage, watching as a fan, or recording their songs at his father, Johnny Divine’s workroom, Outback Studios.
Divine mastered the guitar, but coming from a musical family, he also played keys and was brought up a drummer. Jimi also wrote and recorded his own original music. Local artists, friends, and family will miss his wit, his kind heart, and undeniable talent.
A Celebration of Jimi’s life will be held at 1pm, Wednesday, January 2, 2019 at The Wichita Theatre, 919 Indiana Ave, Wichita Falls, with Pastor Tim Hoke officiating. The family asks that memorials be made in his honor to PETS, 500 Wichita St, Wichita Falls, TX 76306, The ARC of Wichita County, 3115 Buchanan St, Wichita Falls, TX 76308, Texas Pit Crew or to a charity of your choice.
