Virgil Lackey III age 38, passed away on May 13, 2023.
Virgil was born in Cincinnati, Ohio to Virgil Lackey, Jr., and Marvis R. Green (nee Hall).
Virgil is survived by his parents, his siblings, Jesyca N. Lackey-Cook, Joshua P. Lackey, and Christopher J. Lackey, his grandfather Virgil Lackey, Sr., and the two loves of his life, Tina Meyer and their daughter, Marley Lackey,, as well as a host of other family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Nadine Lackey and his maternal grandparents, Paul Hall III, and Jessie M. Hall.
Virgil lived life fully, successfully making his dreams reality – having a family of his own and opening a Martial Arts dojo – creating a legacy he was proud of. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him and his infectious laugh.
A memorial service for Virgil Lackey III will take place at a later date.
“My son “Chilly Jordan”, I know that we didn’t always see eye to eye on things. But when we really looked at things, we had more in common than we realized. It saddens me that due to outside sources we were not able to say a proper goodbye. No worries my son! Somethings cannot be denied or removed. One of those things is that part of my DNA was in you because you were my son, and I was your mother. That cannot and will not ever change. I may not have said it enough but you were and still are loved. Understand, ” Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal”. I love you my boy!! Now you rest!”
“Virgil will be missed. By all of his family not just the Lackey side but the Hall side also. He was loved by both of his parents who are both alive and still living in Ohio. He will be missed by his whole family on both sides the Lackey side and the Hall side. RIP Chill.”
“Virgil the third will be truly missed. He has a very huge family. Especially on his mothers side. The Hall side. He is survived by both of his parents who are still alive in the state of Ohio. Both of his parents loved him deeply. Not just his father who is portraying that the Hall side doesn’t exist. But they do and they are remorseful and very respectful of his passing. RIP Chill.”
“SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS, MAY GOD COMFORT YOU IN YOUR TIME OF SORROW. GOD BLESS!”
“Rest In Peace and our hearts go out to you Marvis and your family.”
“So very proud of your many accomplishments Love and.will miss you (Chill) Virgil III Aunt Arlene in SC”
“Much love and peace coming your way family of Chill God be with you in your loss. Judi Classen”
“Virgil or 3 as I affectionly called him is already missed. I would come around the corner on my way home from work and 3 would be out in the yard smiling and waving at me. I would stop the car and we would chit chat a while. He was such a gentleman. After seeing his garden flourishing; he came down and built me a garden box. I enjoyed seeing him dote on his baby girl Marley. 3 you are missed. May God grant peace to your family and loved ones. 3’s friend Mary Terrell”
“A great man with love and compassion for everyone. I watched this man go out and do what he does best, working with his students of all ages, pushing them to be the best they can be. He pushed my son to get up and not accept defeat. I value the time I knew Virgil and I’m proud to say he was my friend. God bless and if there are Judo matches in Heaven, I know you’ll be there pushing the next group of students!”
“Far and away one of the best people I have ever had the pleasure to know. The world is a much worse place now that he is gone. I hope we meet again”
“Very hopeful that your soul is at peace and finally at rest with grandparents and other loved ones that the family has lost along the way..❤️💫”
“RIP Virgil. You were a joy to be around. A calm and grateful soul. You will be missed.”
“It seems surreal still. Those of us who were blessed enough to walk into the dojo with Chill, left a better person. Myself and my crew of children will never forget the bright light he left on our hearts.”
“The measure of man is the legacy he leaves behind. You made an impact on so many people my friend. You will never be forgotten. Rest well.”
“You are and always will be remembered for all you strengths and kind hearted nature. Our lives were made more full by your presence. Marley will always know what an amazing person her Daddy was. Rest easy Brother.”
“We are all just so sad. As you can imagine, Michael (a.k.a. by Chill as a young Steven Seagal) has been very emotional. Our daughters were in disbelief when we told them. He will be dearly missed. We will always remember his kindness, his smile and his laugh. His laugh was contagious! Our prayers for peace and comfort are with all of you❤️”
“Sorry for your loss Virgil,but if he was anything like you then he was a good man can’t imagine what you and your family are going through I know it will never be the same but hope you guys get through this”
“Man it took some to process the whole situation. It’s crazy in just a short months I was a part of the team I got to kno more bout you an the dedication you had for this. An the news about you being sick hit close to home cause I also have a family member battling cancer. I remember my last message to you was “I hope u get better soon big man” didn’t think that it was gonna really be the last message I’d ever send to you. I’m grateful for the knowledge I received from you an the rest of the team. You really helped me live my dream. And I hope the rest of the team doesn’t give up. Cause you never did an we shouldn’t either. Hopefully classes go on and we continue to fight for you. Much love Chill til we meet again big man”
“I regret that I didn’t get a chance to train with you cousin. To hear the wonderful words and stories being told by your friends and loved ones of you fam warms my heart. My prayers are with your beautiful wife and daughter as well your Students. Take Your Rest ✊🏾”
