Hubert Lee Wilcox, 71, passed away Monday, September 3, 2018 at his home in Sharpsburg, Ga. surrounded by his family.

He was born on December 27, 1946 in Clarksburg, W.Va. to the late Thurman William Wilcox and Evelena Morrison Wilcox.

Lee, as he would introduce himself, had many passions in life. His faith was always very important to him and he did not mind sharing the good word with others by teaching and reciting whole chapters of scripture. He was very active at Welcome Road Baptist Church where he was a long-time member. After his faith came his family and his love for being a master carpenter and wood worker. If you were to ask his family, he never met a stranger and was loved by all who knew him. He will be dearly missed by so many friends and family.

 Along with his parents, Lee is preceded in death by his sister, Minnie Brown.

He is survived by his loving wife, Patricia Wilcox; children, Brian Garrett and his wife Sherry, Dina Whittington, Josh Alexander and his wife Stacey; grandchildren, Brian Garrett, Jr., Julian Whittington, Bella Pastor, Makenzie Alexander, Joshua Alexander, Jr.; and great grandchild, Corbin Garrett. Lee is also survived by his siblings, Peg Turner of Goodhope, W.Va., Dorothy Mills of Bridgeport, W.Va., Lewis Wilcox of Akron, Ohio, Louise Bowser of Akron, Ohio John Wilcox of Lakeside Park, Ky.; and numerous nieces and nephews. 

The funeral service for Lee is Saturday, September 8, 2018 at 11 AM at Welcome Road Baptist Church with Pastor Dan Odom officiating. The burial will follow the service at Brooks Memorial Gardens in Brooks, Ga. The family will receive friends Friday evening from 6-8 p.m. at McKoon Funeral Home, 38 Jackson Street, in Newnan.
