Danny Lamar “Big Daddy” Scarborough, 68, passed away November 19, 2019 in Tyler, Texas. 
He was born November 22, 1950 in Center, Texas, to Jeff and Ruth Scarborough.  He was a member and Deacon of Smyrna Missionary Baptist Church where he taught Sunday school for many many years.  He loved the Lord and had a huge impact on the life of many through his teaching of the Bible and how he led by example in his day to day life.  Danny was loved by all and was always known by everyone as “Big Daddy”.  Big Daddy was very active in his children and grandchildren’s lives and attended as many of their functions as he could fit in whether it be sports to theatre events.  He loved to fish, hunt, play 42, pitch washers and watch westerns.  He will be missed by a multitude of friends and family that loved him, but we all rest easy in knowing he is resting in the arms of Jesus.

James Richard Shofner


 

 

James Richard Shofner, 89 of Center, Texas, left this world on Monday, November 18, 2019, in Nacogdoches, Texas. He was born to Martin Lee and Bessie Flemings Shofner on December 21, 1929, in Center, Texas. After graduating high school, he proudly served his country for eight years in the United States Navy, where he completed a tour of duty during the Korean War. After being honorably discharged, James promised the Lord if He would let him get back to the Piney Woods of East Texas he would never leave for long. It was a promise he kept short of a few brief vacations. 

 

Upon his marriage to Rosa, he settled in Center to raise a family and run his machine shop building, tinkering and creating for many years. He was a Master Mason and was the Worshipful Master of Lodge 149. James was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ and a long-time member of Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Huxley, Texas, where he was a deacon for 58 years. Everyone who knew him knew of his faith and unending love for Jesus.

 

He passed that love along not only to his family, but also to countless friends and strangers alike. We are certain that upon reaching the Pearly Gates he was met by a host of family and friends and welcomed with the words, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” Services will be Thursday November 21, 2019 at Mangum Funeral Home at 10:00 a.m. with visitation Wednesday November 20, 2019 at Mangum Funeral Home from 5-7 p.m. Interment will be at Oaklawn Memorial Park.
