James Spurgeon

February 20, 1949 — October 29, 2017

James M. (Jimmy) Spurgeon, 68, husband of 48 years to Delia Corman Spurgeon, died Sunday, October 29 at Baptist Healthcare in Lexington. Born February 20, 1949, he was the son of the late James L. and Leona Rose Spurgeon.

Jimmy was a retired production supervisor for Osram-Sylvania with over 30 years of service. He was an avid fisherman, a dedicated husband, father, brother, and "Papaw" to his grandchildren and great grandchildren, was a member of the Versailles United Methodist Church, and as a school bus driver the children always called him "Mr. Jim".

Jimmy would give you the shirt off his back, make you feel at home, and give you words of wisdom. His hobbies changed like the seasons, but his loyalty and love remained steadfast.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by a daughter, Leslie (Mark) Gaus of Clayton, NC, a son, Jason M. (Larissa) Spurgeon of Lexington, a sister, Wanda Spurgeon Parrott of Versailles, eight grandchildren, Emma Gaus, Lydia Gaus, Jonah Gaus, Joshua (Lesley) Stephens, Thomas (Ashley) Stephens, Lacey Stephens, Corey (Breanna) Stephens, six great grandchildren, Mother-in-law, Jo Ann Corman, sister-in-law Melissa Corman, a niece, Karen Boden, nephew Marlon Hutchens, and a great nephew, Jamie Glass.
