In Loving Memory of James Jeffrey Nance

1959 - 2024

It is with deep sadness that we share the passing of James Jeffrey Nance, affectionately known as “Jeff,” who went home to join his Heavenly Father at the age of 64 on February 5, 2024, in Fort Worth, Texas.

 Born on October 14, 1959, in Fort Worth, Texas, to James Franklin Nance and Jacqueline Ethel Wood, Jeff was a proud graduate of Eastern Hills High School, Class of 1978. Throughout his varied career, Jeff embarked on diverse professional paths, excelling as a skilled farrier, professional bull rider, seasoned private pilot, adept flight dispatcher, dedicated contractor at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, and experienced over-the-road truck driver. Above all, Jeff was a proud father and Papu; he cherished each moment he spent with his family.

Jeff has been reunited with his beloved Mimi and Papu, Ethel McAdams Wood and Ashley Duell Wood; grandparents, Velva and Samuel Nance; father and step-mother, James and Jeannie Nance; mother, Jacqueline Wood; half brother, Gregory Chance Williams; and in-laws, Shirley and Mel Podell and Muriel and Matt Kevil, in God's Eternal Kingdom.

He will be deeply and lovingly missed by his son, Clay Nance and wife, Jenny; daughter, Kaity Marcos and husband, Daniel; step-son, Jerad Jones and wife, Allison; sister, Lynne Robinson and husband, Terry; his brother, Brad Nance and wife, Julie; and those who knew him as a loving Papu, Willow and Emma Nance, Diego, Eli, and Naomi Marcos, and Jordan, Jil, and Jet Jones; his previous wife of thirty years, Priscilla Kevil; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family and friends.
