James M. Zeigler “Jimmy” born March 15, 1941 passed away January 4, 2021.
Jimmy was preceded in death by his daughter, Ann; his brother, Mike; and his uncle, Richard Ivey.
Jimmy is survived by his wife, Fran, of 56 years; his granddaughter, Ivey; her husband, Nick Vickers, and two precious great-granddaughters, Bryer and Breeland. Other survivors so special to him are his sister, Eloise White and family of Brooklyn, NY; his nephew, Joshua Zeigler and his family Phiane and Christopher and his niece Guinevere Zeigler, all of Richmond; his aunt Lois Ivey of Ashland and her children, Rick and Joan Ivey and family, and Myra and Buddy Weston and family; his North Carolina family, his sister-in-law, Betty Walters and her husband and her children Elizabeth Bossert and family, John Peacock and family, Julia Peacock and family, and Hudson Rose.
Jimmy was a Richmond area custom home builder and developer for more than 40 years. In his leisure time, he enjoyed collecting antique muscle cars. For more than 35 years his best times were spent at the home we built in Wrightsville Beach, NC, fun times deep-sea fishing on his boats named “Locomocean” with dear friends Bill, Terri, and Maggie Barker, and Charlie Godwin.
The family would like to thank the capable and caring staff at VCU Medical Center, the Neuroscience ICU, the palliative care unit, and Hospice of Virginia.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Children’s Hospital on Brook Rd, The Hume Lee Transplant Center at VCU, or to Methodist University in Fayetteville, NC. Interment will be private.
