Jacob Franklin Fincham, 69, of Lynchburg went to be with his Lord Saturday, July 22, 2017 following a lengthy illness.

Born in Washington, D.C., he was the son of the late Bernard Fincham and Frances Beltz Fincham. Jacob was an active member of Thomas Road Baptist Church for over 30 years where he served in the greeter program every day to welcome students, faculty, visitors and staff to TRBC and LCA. He was also actively involved with Liberty Christian Academy. He was a fixture at the school and was a servant to the students at LCA and they loved him. He was a manager for the basketball teams in the 80’s and 90’s and went on many church ministry teams to Myrtle Beach in the summers. Jacob was present at many of the school activities and athletic functions assisting with fundraising and supporting the school in any way. Jacob also actively participated in the Special Olympics for many years. Jacob never met a stranger and he will be missed.

Jacob is survived by one brother, Bernard Fincham of Amherst and his family at Thomas Road Baptist Church and Liberty Christian Academy.

Although I had not seen Jacob for several years, I remember him well from many years ago when he rented from me. He was a prime example of a man who may not have never been possessed of many of live's material advantages but, nevertheless, made many positive contributions to his community. As I recall, he was always a happy person and you couldn't help feeling good when you were in his company.

I will always remember Jacob's sense of humor and how he would leave phone messages singing Christmas songs in July. He loved milkshakes and chicken nuggets. Actually he loved most anything to eat! Jacob loved his Lord and his church. When Jacob prayed you knew God heard him. He will be greatly missed. Theresa Bryant

I will always remember Jacob and his love for TRBC and LCA. Hot Dogs always seemed to be his favorite at the games and he would always ask for one.
