With many having mixed emotions and understandably broken hearts, the Majestic Family has been given the solemn duty to serve notice that Mr. James McKoy no longer has to tolerate life’s fitful fevers. Mr. McKoy stepped out of life’s backdoor early Sunday morning at Cape Fear Valley Bladen County Hospital in Elizabethtown, NC.
Life and Legacy Services for Mr. McKoy will commence with a public visitation on Friday between the hours of 6pm and 8pm in the A.B. Hobbs Remembrance Chapel located on the campus of Majestic Funeral Establishment. A formal “farewell” celebration will take place on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at 3 o’clock post meridian at Zion Chapel AME Zion Church in Kelly, NC. Immediately following the formalities in the House of Worship, Mr. McKoy’s earthen vessel along with his cherished family will be escorted to the Lagoon Community Cemetery for Interment Rites. Although Mr. James exited this daily walk called life, those whom he loved and loved him can find solace knowing he has walked into the Garden of Rest where everyday is as peaceful and beautiful as a bright Sunday morning and the sunlight brightens the day from the rays of our Heavenly Father.
He leaves to cherish his memories: his wife: Valerie McKoy; three children: Latarsha Shaw (Darrell) of Kannapolis, NC, Dante McKoy (Marcella) of Ammon, NC and Joy McKoy of Kelly, NC. He had the pleasure of having and loving dearly his six grandchildren: Shanai, Shadia, Naya, DeSyias, Aaron and Kameron. He also gained his first great grand-daughter: Kennedy; his father: James Phillip Wright; three brothers: Bennie McKoy( Pamela), Larenzo McKoy (Priscilla) and Waymond McKoy (Valeria); four sisters: Lee Helen Mckoy, Agnes Mumford, Mavis Harvey (James) and Machelle McCraken (Courtney); three sisters-in-laws that he looked upon as his sisters: Delorse Mercer, Rosetta Robertson and Cordellia Wright; brother-in-law: Wayne Young and like a brother: Edward Wright as well as his special friend: Mary Wright Witchet as well as a host of special friends, nieces, nephews and cousins.

The McKoy and connected families are being served with Genuine Compassion and Distinguished Class by the Majestic Servants of Service.
