James "Jim" Cox

Wytheville, Va.

James "Jim" Cox, Jr., age 58, passed away Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at Johnston Memorial Hospital, Abingdon, Va.

If you were looking for a story – that would take forever to tell – Jim Cox was your man. He loved to pick on his friends, camp, fish, make people laugh or just give his opinion about whatever the topic was. A friend described the world as "a sadder place without Jim Cox", and for his family and friends, that is true.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Alfred and Frances Cox; sister, Kim Cox; and father-in-law, Douglas Hylton.

Jim is survived by his love, Diann of Wytheville, Va.; step-sons, Kelly Meadows and wife, Jennifer of Eagle Rock, Va., and Chris Meadows and wife, Kristin of Bland, Va.; sister, Wynn Fair and husband, Mike of Jonesboro, Tenn.; brother, Tim Cox of Marion, Va.; grandsons, Hunter and Johnathon Meadows and step-grandson, Hunter Wilson; niece, Callee Cox; nephew, McCloud Cox; and many friends.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, February 9, 2019 at 7 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel with Blake Frazier officiating. Graveside services will be held Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 2 p.m. at Wassum Cemetery. Family are asked to meet at the cemetery at 1:45 p.m. The family will receive friends Saturday evening from 5 until 7 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Big Brothers – Big Sisters, 114 Court Street N.E., Abingdon, Va. 24210; or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. When someone we love dies, its natural to want to see that person again. God promises us that He will comfort us in our trials if we go to him in prayer. 2 Corinthians 1:3 calls him the God of all comfort. Id like to share with yall this link that shows 12 steps on coping with grief that is good for sharing. I have personally found this very comforting and I hope yall do as well. https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&docid=102018086&srcid=share

I hadn't known Jim for too long, but as all of you know to know Jim was to like Jim. We always joked with each other, and always looked forward to working with him. I will miss Jim a great deal.

Prayers for Jim's family and friends. Praying for you to have God's peace during these difficult times. My memories of Jim are few, except that I do remember him as always kind and considerate. He had a big heart and was a good friend to many.
