Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Welcomed into the open arms of the Lord, On the morning of September 1st, 2021, John “Jay”Adam Niedbalski Jr.’s enormous heart played its last beat.

Native to Wilmington, Delaware he was born into the wild heat on the eighth of July in 1966. We take solace in knowing he can be with his earthly father again, John (Jack) Adam Niedbalski. He is survived by his loving wife Kimberly Katherine Niedbalski, his sons John Adam Niedbalski III and Christian Alexander Niedbalski, his daughter Nicole Alaina Moore, Son in Law Cary Wayne Moore, two granddaughters Caroline Wyatt Moore and Lucille Katherine Moore, his mother Barbara Jane Niedbalski and two sisters Catherine Rossi (James “Jimmy” Rossi) and Patricia Humphries (Robert Humphries). In addition, he is survived many cousins, nieces, nephews, and extended sons, daughters, and those he cared for in such fashion.

A man of unwavering faith, open arms, and would unconditionally love others is the epitome of the legacy he leaves behind to us all. From his start at Union Park to his entrepreneurial success with Jay’s Auto Repair his skills and knowledge were beyond solving any problem on car- but that within the hearts of everyone he met. A coach, a mentor, a friend, a brother, a father, a missionary, a true beacon of hope; he lived his faith.

To all whom got to share a page in his great adventure, join us in celebrating his unconditional legacy Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 4:30 PM at Calvary Chapel, 20722 Timberlake Rd. Lynchburg, VA, 24502.

I just heard about Jay’s passing this morning and I am absolutely devastated; he was such a wonderful man with a heart of gold, he came into my life in a time of uncertainty and though I didn’t know him personally there was an ease about knowing that there are people out there that you can trust, people out there that did care about the well-being of others … he was truly a prodigy when it comes up to the service industry. Based on reading his obituary I only regret that I did not know him on a personal level, my condolences go out to his family and his friends and may you be blessed with your memories of all the times you shared with him to ease your healing. Rest in Peace my friend …

We are so very sorry for your loss. For all of our life (87 years), we have been close friends with Jay's mother and spent many happy memories with Jay's father. Jay's dad was a great man and I am sure Jay followed in his footsteps. We remember Jay as a happy go lucky & delightful little boy and teenager. We are so sad for your loss and have been praying for your family.

Jay was like a father to me. He, Kim, and Christian treated my family as his own, and helped lead us on a path to truth - no matter where it took us. He was always there for us, even across state lines and in times of trials. His devotion and resolve to the truth will always be remembered in our hearts and minds, and will be forever reflected in our actions. Here's to you Jay, you changed my life and I am forever grateful.

Sweet Kim, and beloved children...Jon and I were just stunned when Kate called friday night. It was our privilege to know Jay for all these years from Little League so long ago. My heart is broken for you and your kids. Sending all of you so much love during these unbearably heavy days....

Kim and family, we are still in a state of shock over the news of Jay’s passing. He was such an amazing man and We always left the shop feeling encouraged.. He always made time for us and our vehicles! His love for God was so apparent & he shared his faith so willingly. I know that he is resting up in heaven with Jesus. We will miss him a great deal.

Jay was a damn good man and he will be missed dearly. He and his family immediately made me and mine feel welcomed and loved from the moment I met them. He never passed judgement on what you had done or where you had been in life, because he knew and genuinely believed people could change and were good. He was truly a man of God, and if you met him there was no question in your mind that he was. He loved talking to, mentoring, and going on adventures with his youth group at church whether it was fishing, Turkey hunting, or hurting himself on the accidental 5 mile hike all up hill. Jay was always “W.F.O.” and spent most of his time like a fart in a whirlwind, which usually kept us guys in the shop laughing and the atmosphere light and fun. I sure hope the lord has plenty for him to do because he’s dangerous when he’s bored, trust me on that one! I can honestly say there will never be another one like him, love you buddy and thanks for everything. We love you Kim and family, we’re always here if you need us. - The Craun’s
