Gibson, GA – Ricky Coxville, 54, loving husband of the late Terrie Prescott Coxville, entered into rest Saturday afternoon, December 28, 2013 at Georgia Regents Medical Center. Funeral services will be held Tuesday, December 31, 2013 at 1:00PM in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Stacy Williford officiating. Interment will follow in the Mt. Moriah Cemetery.
One of three children born to Kathryn Lampp Coxville Marsh and the late Bennett Coxville, Ricky was a lifelong resident of Gibson, specifically Steephollow Rd. A welder by trade, he was a jack of all trades—could do anything and was an especially great mechanic: “he could make anything run”. Ricky was always the life of the party, never met a stranger and loved to make people laugh. He was known for his kindness and generosity—he was always there to help those in need in any way he could. Other than work, he loved to go on cruises, usually with his family. Ricky loved to hug, especially his family whom he cherished beyond measure. He was a “family man” and loved his family get-togethers, especially being with his grandchildren, his greatest joy. Death leaves us a heartache that no one can heal; but love leaves us memories that no one can steal.
Ricky was also preceded in death by his grandparents, Frances Gregory Coxville and Joe Lee Coxville, and Lena McNeil Lampp and Bill Lampp. Other survivors include his two sons, C. Ryan Coxville (Dolly) and Chad B. Coxville (Danielle); two siblings, Faye Post (Kelly) and Scotty Coxville( Julie); six grandchildren, Autumn Coxville, Alex Coxville, Ryleigh Coxville, Colton Coxville, Madison Hadden, and Cade Coxville; several nieces and nephews; and many friends. Pallbearers will be Ryan Brooks, Peck Dawson, Jim Hadden, Tony Kelley, Preston Prescott and Ricky Wood.
The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home on Monday, December 30, 2013 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
Because of the unexpected nature of this loss, the family respectfully requests memorial contributions to be made to James Funeral Home, PO Box 588, Wrens GA 30833.
I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an after glow of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways--
Of happy times and laughing times and bright, summer days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve,
To dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.
