Obituaries » James F. Legg Jr.

With sad hearts we announce the death of our beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother James Franklin Legg Jr., 85, of Warrenton, on June 15, 2020, as he changed his address to Heaven.

Jim was born August 9, 1934 in Round Hill, to the late James Franklin Legg Sr. and Josephine Alder Legg. 

In addition to his parents, Jim was preceded in death by his siblings William, Betty, Joe and Freddie.

He is survived by his beloved wife of almost 68 years Joyce Legg; his beautiful children, Debbie Lindsey (Stewart) and Jim Legg (Cindy); his adored grandchildren, Jacqueline Legg (Keith), Aileen Bayliss (Lloyd) and Christopher Legg (Violeta); his great grandchildren Brooklynn, Christopher and Knox; his siblings, Charles, Mildred, Tommy, Doug, Peggy and Bonnie, as well as many beloved nieces and nephews. 

We were blessed in abundance to have him in our lives. He was a God loving humble servant and gave his all to his family and members of the community. He was a commissioner of the baseball and football little league in Fauquier County, a little league coach, chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Warrenton United Methodist Church and lifelong member, president of the Jaycees, president of the Ruritan Club and lifetime member. He served on the Warrenton Town Council and the Rappahannock-Rapidan Planning District Commission, as well as owner of Legg Construction for 60 years. 

The family will receive friends on Friday, June 19, from 9 a.m. until the service begins at 10 a.m. at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. Due to COVID-19 governmental restrictions, limited space is available for the visitation and funeral service and wearing of facial coverings will be required. Rev. Tim Tate will conduct the service. Interment will follow at Warrenton Cemetery. 

Memorial contributions may be made to Warrenton United Methodist Church, 341 Church Street, Warrenton, Va. 20186 or to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, Tenn. 38105.
