James McCrory

November 3, 1937 - July 18, 2023

James Elmer McCrory Sr., of Pottsboro, Texas, passed away on July 18, 2023. He was born on November 3, 1937, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Roy Howard and Mary Ann (Thornbrue) McCrory.

James was a faithful and hardworking man. He married the love of his life, Sharron, on January 27, 1957, in Gainesville, Texas. He was a faithful Christian and was a member of the Trinity Lighthouse Church in Denison, where he started the Men’s Ministry many years ago. He retired at a young age from TI with over 25 years of dedicated service. However, that didn’t stop James from working. He truly enjoyed learning all things new. From arts and crafts, woodworking, gardening, canning preserves, photography, and farming, nothing was out of his reach. James was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. His grandchildren and great grandchildren always had an adventure waiting on them when they were in his presence. In his own words, he was ‘young at heart.’ James was well respected and loved by all. He was dependable, self-reliant, and kind to others. He will be deeply missed by all that knew him.

He is survived by his wife, Sharron McCrory of Pottsboro, Texas; sons, Jimmy McCrory Jr. and Gary McCrory, both of Pottsboro, Texas; seven grandchildren, James McCrory III and wife Tabitha, Candace Tyree and husband Willie, Tyler D.

He was preceded in death by his parents; son, Jason Eldin McCrory Sr.; daughter-in-law, Angela McCrory; and five siblings, Roy McCrory, Elsie Metlock, Dan McCrory, Bob McCrory, and Edna Sisson.

    I have such fond memories of James and the loving relationship Bill and I had with James and Sharon and our kids. Although a quiet man, James was a man of exemplary morals. He set an example of kindness, friendship and the love of God, and lived accordingly. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, and my greatest hope is for you to receive peace and comfort in every day that passes. Love, Julia Merlynn McClain
