James Randall RHEA Obituary
RHEA, James Randall "Jim" Age 91, formerly of Northern Kentucky and Hamilton, went to be with his Lord on Monday, January 7, 2019, at The Anderson Rehabilitation and Nursing. He was preceded in death by his wife, Lisbeth Gail (Jelle) Rhea (April, 1999) and multiple siblings. Jim was cherished by his four children, Mark Rhea (Cincinnati), Kevin Rhea (Lake Lure, North Carolina), Cindy (Rhea) Elam (Cincinnati), and Todd Rhea (Murrysville, PA), and by his step-children, Deborah Ann (Hay) Couch (Glendale, KY) and Karen Dale (Hay) Furnish (Tampa Bay, FL). Jim was also blessed by several grandchildren (Erika Kaufman, Alex Elam, Noah and Liam Rhea, Brian Couch, and Andrea Pruitt) and great grandchildren (Avery and Brynn Kaufman, Aubrey Basham, and Henry Pruitt). Jim once owned an independent house painting and drywall business and was known for his meticulous work and craftsmanship. He also worked as a houseparent for a boys' home in Hamilton. Jim belonged to First Baptist Church in Covington before becoming an active member of St. Clair Avenue Baptist Church in Hamilton, where he was an avid singer in the choir. Jim also loved to dance with dear friends at Partners in Prime before he had to stop cutting a rug. A private graveside service was held for family members on January 8 at Floral Hills Memorial Gardens in Taylor Mill, Kentucky.
