James Lewis Lacy Jr.
Oct 13, 1954Apr 21, 2019
James L. Lacy, Jr. beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend left this world to join his Heavenly Father on Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019.
Jim had a big, welcoming personality with a warm smile and huge heart to match. He had a contagious laugh that brightened the darkest of days. Jim never met a stranger and made each of us feel like we were extra special to him. Jim was a generous, caring and positive person, and gave unconditional love. His family was more important to him than anything, and he always made time for his children and grandchildren and put them first. Papa Bear, as his grandkids called him, had an amazing spirit that will live on within them and be cherished forever.
Jim was preceded in death by his parents, James L. Lacy, Sr.; and Louise Puffenbarger Lacy. He leaves behind to cherish his memory two sons, James Connor Lacy and Jordan Reed Lacy (Crystal); six grandchildren, James, Eve, Trinity, Ella, Emma and Paisley; a sister Joan L. Collins (Steve) and her family; and two brothers, David R. Lacy (Verna) and his family and Paul K. Lacy (Heidi) and his family; plus numerous other family members in Richmond, Goochland, Bridgewater, Weyers Cave, Williamsburg and Tidewater areas of Virginia.
I thank God to have had the pleasure of working with Jim so many years at Water Treatment Services. He will truly be missed. A man of strong faith. He loved his grandkids
Whenever we did not have any evening work Jim would say: “ you guys have a good evening going Jim to make spaghetti with the grand kids” a family man who loved his family
May the Grace of God be with the family
I will keep the family in prayer
Yvette Barnett, Marketing Manager at Water Treatment Services
It is with a very heavy heart that I say goodbye to a very special man. I have not known him as long as others but that didn’t matter to him. He had a way of making me feel like I knew him a lifetime. God got a very special Angel the day Jim went home. Rest in peace Jim until we meet again
Always Liz Ryder
What a great man he was and all around good person. I worked with Jim for 10 years and even though we only saw each other at Company Christmas parties, we talked a lot between those parties. The time spent in catching up at the parties were like we never skipped a beat. On Saturday afternoons we would talk while driving around about the weeks appointments. The measure of a good person is the amount that person will be missed by those who knew him, I like many know that void is without measure. I look forward to the time we meet again Jim, thank you. May you truly Rest In Peace
Remembering Jim! I met Jim while out with my girlfriends. He is contagious. Wonderful memories – he introduced me to Innsbook, Delbert Mcclinton, Halloween parades, Concerts in the Dale, swimming on the Island, canoeing down the James, Art in the Park, Saturday’s at his Moms, he was a bouncer for me at Hampton Sydney Frat events, he danced with me at First Fridays in Farmville, joined my family at my Mom’s wedding, reunions, I could go on. I relocated due to work, and our paths separated, we each had kids to raise. We continued to keep up with each others families. I will miss seeing him. My 4 kids and I were blessed to know him. What a man! Love you Jim ! What a legacy you have in your family. God bless your family.
