James F. Cox, Sr. of Granbury, Texas passed away on Saturday January 25, 2020. James was born on May 16, 1948 in Butler, Georgia. He was 71 years old. The Funeral Service for James will be a private family service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Cancer Society.
James proudly served his country as a United States Marine from 1966 – 1968. He loved his grandkids, great grandkids and sometimes his own kids. He also loved his dogs and his junk. He was an avid Nascar Fan and enjoyed traveling to the races, people watching, deep-sea fishing and work, work, work.
He enjoyed waking people up at ungodly hours in the morning to go have breakfast and he rarely passed up a Waffle House. One of his favorite pass times was finding ways to aggravate the people he loved and cared about and he always had a joke ready at your expense. So, if he ever gave you a hard time, or ever called you a name or two; chances are, he cared about you. He was a tell-it-like-it-is kind of guy and always gave you his opinion, even if you didn’t want it.
Although he was known for being cantankerous and a little rough around the edges, he had a big heart and tried to help everyone he knew. Those who knew him, knew that when you needed him, he was always there. He will always be remembered and greatly missed. James was preceded in death by his parents: Homer Dorsey Cox and Mary Myrtis Cox.
He was survived by his long-time friend and companion: Dee Goodnight; children: Ronald Cox and wife Debbie, Jeff Cox and wife Angela, Tater and wife Sunny, James F. Cox, Jr. and wife Carol; grandchildren: Rachel Beal and husband Bobby, Christa Sheffield and husband Grady White, Kayla Jordan and husband Chase, Maddy Cox, Ashley Reagan, Robert Reagan, Jr., Sophie Cox; great-grandchildren: Bailey and Mason Beal, Rustin Jordan, Laityn, Shaylie, and Kannon.
“Hats off to Willie”
