James T. Rixey, left this world on December 30, 2017 to be with God, and many family and friends. He was the loving son of Eppa Rixey III and Nancy (Roudebush) Rixey Gottschalk, step-son of Jack Gottschalk and brother of Eppa (Buffie) Rixey IV and their children, Carol Rixey Sullivan, Sarah (J.P.) Rixey Pharr and Eppa (Maggie) Rixey V. He married his loving wife, Brenda (Furlong) Rixey and had two amazing children, Alex (Ivy Subin) Rixey and Leigh Rixey.

People often say someone is “unique” without really meaning it. Jim Rixey was truly the most unique, kind soul, who always put others before himself. He shared his unconditional time, knowledge and compassion with anyone who was in need. Jim was an incredible father, husband, and son, while also being a loyal friend to countless others. Jim touched lives in all walks of life, making his impact on the people around him that much stronger. In addition, Jim’s strong relationship with God led him through life with a guiding light. His passion for music, charity, and family filled his everyday life, giving him a wonderful purpose. This world is a bit better because of Jim Rixey.

He leaves a hole that no one will ever fill. Please join us for a celebration of life at Horizon Community Church in Newtown, Ohio on Saturday January 6, 2018 at 10:00am. In lieu of flowers, please give to the charity of your choice.
