Life Reflections

James Lewis Fauntleroy, Sr., son of the late Mary Taylor Fauntleroy and Spencer Fauntleroy, Sr. was born February 16, 1921 in White Stone, Virginia. Educated in Lancaster Public Schools, James attended A. T. Wright in White Stone, Virginia and honorably served in the United States Army during World War II. As a Technician Fifth Grade in Company C in the 484th Port Battalion, James served his country in the European African Middle Eastern Theater from 1942 to 1945.

He was affiliated with St. Paul's Methodist Church in White Stone, Virginia and later joined Galilee Methodist Church in Edwardsville, Virginia.

James loved to spend time with his family and friends; especially his children and grandchildren. Whenever you saw him, he always had a funny story to tell and enjoyed making you laugh.

On Tuesday, November 7, 2006 at his residence in White Stone, Virginia, James went home to be with the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was preceded in death by three sons: James, Jr. “BoBo,” Robert “Bobby” and Kenneth Fauntleroy.

Cherishing his memories are: Elizabeth Pinkney, a loving and devoted friend and companion; his children: Vernell McDougle of Newport News, Virginia; Terry Fauntleroy of Weems, Virginia; Cheyann and Hezekiah Fauntleroy both of White Stone, Virginia; and Cheryl Cockrell of Mechanicsville, Virginia; a son-in-law, Julian Cockrell; two daughters-in-law: Charlotte of Newport News, Virginia and Gail of Abbeville, Louisiana, 35 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, one brother, Edward Fauntleroy of Exmore, Virginia; three sisters: Margaret Nutt of Millville, New Jersey, Mary Buggs of Baltimore, Maryland; and Maria Mason of White Stone; a special nephew: Rev. Herman “Jackfrost” Cottman of Hampton, Virginia; a host of nieces, nephews relatives and friends.
