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.
