Obituary for James Henry Caton


James Henry Caton, a former resident of Mangum, Oklahoma, passed away on April 5, 2024, at Willow Park Healthcare Center in Lawton, Oklahoma. Born on May 1, 1930, in Detroit, Texas, to James Canton Senior and Alley Canton, James Henry Canton Junior brought joy to his parents from the moment of his birth.

James spent his early years in Paris, Texas, before relocating to Mangum, Oklahoma, at a young age. He quickly became an integral part of the family farm, assisting with chores and cultivating a strong work ethic. Throughout his adult life, James dedicated himself to hard work, laboring on the farm, hauling hay, erecting fences, and tackling any task that needed attention. In his leisure time, he found pleasure in watching westerns, playing dominoes and cards, and relishing the tranquility of his front porch. His love for nature extended to long drives in the countryside, where he delighted in observing wildlife, especially the majestic sight of buffalo running.
An avid fan of Dr Pepper, a drink he associated with his hometown, James was rarely seen without a can in hand. Known for his kindness and selflessness, he always prioritized the needs of others above his own. Above all else, James cherished spending time with his family.
In 2017, James relocated to Lawton, Oklahoma, to be closer to his daughter, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He was a man of faith, finding solace in his relationship with Jesus Christ and attending various churches in the Mangum area. James leaves behind a legacy of love, devotion, and faith.
He was preceded in death by his parents a brother, and his son Milton Caton. . James is survived by his children: James Caton,III, Thelma Thompson, Yuller Walker, Angela Richardson, Cynthia Caton, Wilton Caton, and Michael McDougle; ten grandchildren; and numerous great-grandchildren.
