James McCoy

A graveside service for James "Carl" McCoy, 90, of Iowa City will be held Friday, April 3, 2015 at 10:30 AM at the Welsh Cemetery, 4401 Sharon Center Road, Iowa City, IA, 52240.  A memorial service will be held at 2:00 PM at the Gospel Meeting Room at 1266 Wilson Avenue, SW, Cedar Rapids, 52404.  Memorial donations may be made to Bible Truth Publishers, Iowa City Hospice, or for the family's use. Carl McCoy, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather joyfully entered into the presence of our Lord and Savior in the early morning hours Friday, March 27, 2015.  Faith gave way to sight as Carl was called home to glory.  His earthly joy was to "...hear that my children walk in truth" III John 4.   His prayer was for all to have the saving knowledge and belief in our Lord Jesus Christ.  Indeed for him to live was Christ!
