James Carroll Pavlikowski, 25, died in a tragic automobile accident Oct. 31, 2016. He was born in Virginia Beach on Oct. 3rd, 1991, and is now in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior.

This unexpected tragedy has sent shockwaves through his family and circle of friends. He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, and his maternal grandmother.

He is survived by his parents, Steven A. and Sharon Pavlikowski; his older brother, Andrew Pavlikowski; his maternal grandfather, James R. Overbey; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Three words best describe James and they are “JAMES WAS JAMES.” He lived life like there was no tomorrow and was a likable young man, which is evident by his many friends. He enjoyed going to Back Bay to relax and take pictures of the sunrise and sunset, and posting selfies of himself in various outfits and poses. Above all else he loved his family. James was a one of kind person whose overwhelming presence will be deeply missed. May he rest in peace.

Services will be held from 2-3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12, at London Bridge Baptist Church, Virginia Beach.

James had no life insurance and his family is left not only heartbroken, but unable to make ends meet. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a memorial contribution to the Pavlikowski family at James C. Pavlikowski Memorial Expense Fund. All contributions will be utilized for any outstanding bills, funeral expenses, vehicle costs, family travel costs, etc.
