James Robert Cotton died February 11, 2021, at St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center, Enid, Oklahoma, at the age of 81. James was born October 14, 1939, to Orange Houston Cotton and Irene (Schwieger) Cotton in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

James graduated from Northeast High School in 1957.

James and Glenda McCracken were married, March 12, 1966, in Crescent, Oklahoma. Together they had 2 children, Robin Cotton White, (Kevin) and Robert Houston Cotton. He also had a chosen family, Andrew, Ellie, James and Ariel Haywood, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

James was a member of I.B.E.W for over 50 years and worked on electrical projects across the state, as well as in Texas, Kansas, and Arkansas for numerous electrical contractors, retiring in 2001.

James was also an avid antique fan collector and member of the Antique Fan Collectors Assoc., attending many “fanfests” and “fanfares” in several states. He loved nothing better than strolling thru the antique malls looking for that special fan, always knowing what year they were made and who made them.

He also loved cars; Corvettes, 64 Chevys, 57’s and even had a race car. He loved airplanes, being able to identify each kind as they flew overhead. He and his son took flying lessons together. He was also a big Sooners fan.

James was preceded in death by his parents; siblings Richard, Doris, Mary, and Martha; brothers-in-law Jack Gilbert, Bill Mitchell, Alan Johnson, Bill Vinyard, and John Garrison; nephew Michael, and sister-in-law, Laqueta Garrison.

James and Glenda attend Hennessey Church of Christ, Hennessey, Ok, where a Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 pm, Saturday, March 6, 2021 with Allen Tillman officiating. Funeral arrangements are under the guidance of Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home, Enid, Oklahoma.
The family requests that all in attendance please wear a mask.

We are so sorry loss. There are no words to take away your pain and sorrow. We are so sorry we won’t be able to attend James’s services. Just wanted to let you know the fan James-restored is in Edmund’s office. The OSU fan is quite the attention getter! Please know you all in our thoughts and prayers

My family and I were friends with the Cotton family when our children were younger. Although we drifted apart I still remember the great times we had together. James was truly a great man and my heart goes out to Glenda and all of his family during this hard time.

Glenda, my sister, Carol, called to tell me about your husband. I am so sorry for your loss. Although it has been many, many years since I have seen you, I always remember the good times we had working in the drugstore together and I feel a sadness for your loss. Know that you and your family are in our hearts and prayers. Bless you. Marilyn Oltmanns Talley
