Obituary

Mr. James M. “Jim” Lenox, age 73, of Covington went Home to be with his Lord Thursday, November 11, 2021. He was born August 5, 1948, in Hartwood, Virginia, to James and Myrtle Lenox who have preceded him in death. Jim grew up in Hartwood and Fredericksburg and was a 1971 graduate of Bob Jones University. He was a high school English teacher for thirty years, impacting thousands of students’ lives at Christian schools including Faith Baptist in Longmont, Colorado, and Grace Baptist in Petersburg, Virginia.


Jim was an avid reader, especially of history and westerns. He enjoyed being in nature, watching football, and listening to his daughters’ and grandchildren’s music. He will be fondly remembered for his dry humor. He was a member of Hopewell Presbyterian Church. Along with his parents, Jim was preceded in death by his brothers Everett Lenox, Edward Hewitt, and Stephen Lenox. 


Jim is survived by his wife of 50 years, Deborah Lenox; his 3 daughters Melody Troutner (Andrew) of Covington, Julia Lenox of Boerne, Texas, and Joy Haun (Kyler) of Concord, California; his grandchildren Aaron, Autumn, and Camden; his siblings Rodger Lenox, George Lenox, Gloria Lenox, and Bessie Lenox; along with numerous nieces, nephews, other family, and close friends.
