Jim Cribbs

James “Jim” Cribbs died Tuesday, January 6, 2015 at Kindred Care, Elizabeth City, NC. He had been a resident at Brian Center, Hertford for one and a half years prior to his recent health issues. Mr. Cribbs was born in Statesboro, GA to Ernest and Georgia Cribbs. He was preceded in death by his wife Patsy of forty-three years; his parents; sister Elizabeth; and son, Tommy Cribbs. He served four years in the Air Force prior to joining the Marines. He was a retired Gygt in the United States Marine Corps serving twenty-two years prior to retirement. He was a truly devoted veteran and proud that he served in the Korean War as well as Vietnam.

Mr. Cribbs is survived by three children, Connie Harris (Odell) of Elizabeth City, NC, Darell Wagner (Gary) of Colorado and Gary Keasling (Felicia) of Virginia Beach, VA; ten grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Jim, as he was better known, was known for his kindness, caring, loving and compassing to anyone he knew or met. He will sorely be missed by all.

His interment took place at West Lawn Memorial Park with military honors and private burial of his remains at the veteran niche. His true love of animals was ever so great and he was a regular donor to the local SPCA as well as the VFW. He took pride in spoiling many pets over the years. There will be a brick in his honor at the new SPCA as well as a memorial brick when the new VFW facility is built. Rest in peace, Jim. Semper Fi.

Twiford Funeral Home, Memorial Chapel, 405 E. Church Street, Elizabeth City is assisting the Cribbs family. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.twifordfh.com.

Condolences for the family of “Jim Cribbs”

Condolence from Sharon on January 16th, 2015 5:05 pm

My heart goes out to your family. I am so sorry for your loss. What pain hurts worse than the pain of losing someone that you love? Mr. Jim was loved and he will be dearly missed. Again, I am so sorry. Though the pain you’re feeling must seem unbearable, please remember that you are not alone. Psalms 46:1 says, “God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress.” Pray to Him for strength. Weep to Him when there are no words. One of the poets of the Bible said at Psalms 56:8, “You keep track of my wandering. Do collect my tears in your skin bottle.” You see, God understands your pain and He cares for you very much (1 Peter 5:7). And He will really help you get through this difficult time (Isaiah 41:10).
