James I Lomax, Jr.

July 22, 1963 ~ March 9, 2019 (age 55)


James I. Lomax, Jr. received his “ultimate” healing from the Lord at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center on March 9, 2019 after a recent medical crisis.

James was a Christian servant that loved the Lord and helping others; he was a loving, loyal husband as well as father and grandfather.  The new millennium term “foodie” was not what he ever used to describe himself, but he loved all cuisines and was excited about new culinary ideas; he had a culinary degree and was a certified chef for the state of Ohio.  James was also community-minded and worked with his spiritual mentor and leader, the late Pastor John B. Culp, in reaching other males seeking salvation.  For years, he trained dogs for adoptions; he had a God-given “touch” with them, but never considered himself a “dog whisperer.”

James was the only child of the late Rev. James I. Lomax, Sr. and the late Gloria Williams-Lomax.  He is survived by his wife Valencia, his true love and soulmate as well as best friend next to Jesus; they met over 40 years ago and God blessed them with a supernatural love that most never experience.  She was by his side during his final days in the hospital and prayed over him as his spirit united with our heavenly father.  Together, they have a daughter Tiana, a regional special education manager, son Dwight, a top-ranking automotive salesman for his company, granddaughter Jazmin, a performing arts high school senior, and a grandson Jayson, second grader in a Spanish-immersion elementary school.
