NUTLEY, NJ - Vincent United Methodist Church (100 Vincent Place) will host a simple Memorial Service for Jimmy Cox on Saturday afternoon, May 13 at 1:00 p.m. for family and friends and the Nutley community. All are welcome.
Jimmy Cox grew up in Nutley and attended the Nutley schools in the 1960s and 1970s.
Over the years, he had his share of difficulties. Eventually, he became homeless in Nutley. Many people helped him in ways large and small so he was able to get by.
He became a familiar face around town. Jimmy said “The earth is my turf.” In recent years, he appreciated the Care Kitchen at Vincent Church where he got a good meal and was able to play a guitar with friends. He also began attending church there.
The hard life began to catch up with Jimmy this past winter and he passed away on April 23.
