James “Jim” Wallace Bock, passed away peacefully in his home, with is loving wife, children, and pets nearby and a fire crackling in the fireplace, on the evening of February 10, 2020. Jim, born June 30, 1959, in Fairmont West Virginia, lives on beyond his sixty years through his love for his family and his hard work. He is missed by his wife, Patricia Ann Bock of Mannington, WV; children, Melvin “Joey” Joseph Bock and wife, Tonya, of Lumberport, WV, James Wallace Bock Jr. and wife, Emily, of Check, VA, and Erika Elaine Pittman, and husband, Cory, of Morgantown, WV; grandchildren, Brad, Laura, and Dani; as well as his beloved canine Buddy “Boudreaux”. He is preceded in death by his father, Larra “Joe” Bock, and brother, John Bock. He is survived by mother, Betty Bock of Mannington, WV; siblings, Butch and Dorothy Bock of Brooksville, FL, Linda and John Perkins of St. Mary, WV, and Joe Bock of Mannington, WV; and several nieces and nephews. Jim was a retired SeaBee of the United States Navy, having served for twenty years and gone on to work construction security from 2002 to 2017 as a government contractor to the State Department, keeping our embassies safe for those years. He enjoyed riding his Harley motorcycle, his RZR UTV, and spending time with his family, friends, and pets. Jim’s other joys included traveling--especially with his wife, building projects--making memories with his children, and relaxing in his home in the countryside with his friends. Jim’s oldest son, Joey, recalls that his fondest memories with his father involved two wheels, riding on the back of his motorcycle when he was little. Son, Jimmy, warmly remembers family fishing trips and how his father instilled a love of the outdoors. Daughter, Erika, affectionately reminisces about playing ‘Chocolate Roulette’, involving blindly sampling from the most obscure box of chocolate they could find, laughing at each other's reactions to the less than appetizing flavors.

Jim requested that there be no service and instead have his family and friends celebrate his life, anticipated for summer of 2020. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be sent in his name to Patriot PAWS ( or Paws and Stripes (, which are organizations that train and match service dogs to veterans in need. Friends and family are invited to leave condolences and memories [in the comments section below].
