The Gator Boys: Is Sara Barber Married To Jimmy Riffle?
No, Jimmy Riffle and his co-star Sara Barber are not married. The couple reportedly got engaged in March 2018 after Jimmy proposed to Sara during their Belize trip. They dated for more than five years before they got engaged and were reportedly associated with each other since 2011.
Their last post together was in October 2022 when they visited Flagstaff, Arizona together.
However, now in 2023, they’ve broken off their engagement. It is unclear when they chose to part ways and why they broke up.
So, Jimmy doesn’t have a wife but he has moved on into a new relationship now. He is now in a relationship with Heather Daly since January 2023, as his Facebook states. Fans of Gator Boys got the big news on Jimmy’s recent 38th birthday in August 2023 when he flaunted his new girlfriend.
Jimmy captioned the post, “I want to thank @heatherdaly3 for such an amazing 38th bday. We took a mini vaca to the east coast and had an amazing time. #staugustinefl was a blast! Cheers to a great time and to many more!!!!!! #fun #happycouple #vacation #bdayfun #staugustinebeach #fort #scalestailsandteeth #loveus #happy #goodtimes #tomanymore.”
Jimmy, who recently turned age 38, has been working with native and exotic wildlife under the supervision of Mike “Skeet” Johns at the Native Village in Hollywood, Florida on the Seminole Indian reservation for many years. Starting at the age of eleven he has been working alongside and learning much from friends and Native Village alums Ian Tyson, Paul Simmons, Tre Huntoon, David Weathers, Dexter Osborn, and Richard Decoste.
Jimmy met his partner and good friend Paul Bedard at the Native Village when Jimmy was a young volunteer there. Paul knew much and Jimmy knew little at the time, they worked side by side wrangling gators and catching venomous snakes. Under Skeet’s supervision, Jimmy taught his younger brother Andy to wrestle gators at a young age. Andy often goes with the “Gatorboys” on their adventures and has become very skilled at working with animals.
Growing up Jimmy’s parents George and Kim Riffle backed Jimmy on any of his decisions “Even though we know he could be hurt we still support him.” At an early age, Skeet took Jimmy under his wing and taught him about wildlife and how to live off the land. He taught him how to identify, appreciate and respect native wildlife and the land itself. Since the age of eleven Jimmy has wanted to follow in Skeet’s footsteps. The two became close friends as Jimmy moved from volunteer to manager of the Native Village by the age of 18.
Skeet passed away in 2005 and left Jimmy at the Native Village to literally walk in his footsteps. Jimmy still works at the Native Village and spends much of his time with his partner Paul exploring the Everglades and the swamps of Florida as well as new areas outside the state. Jimmy says, “The learning experience I get every day working with wildlife and meeting new people is a blessing from God. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.”
