James Creyer Pogue
On October 28, 2012, after a lengthy illness, James Creyer Pogue,85, of Eupora passed away at North MS Medical Center in Eupora surrounded by his loving family, and went to his Heavenly home.
James was born May 15, 1927, in Mathiston, MS to Robert Lee and Irma O’Neal Pogue. The youngest of five children, he grew up learning the value of hard work, the importance of family, and the enjoyment found in sports, particularly football. Leaving high school at the age of sixteen, he enlisted in the United States Army where he served in the 3rd Infantry Division. After basic training, James was sent to Germany where he was assigned to the Army’s Motor Pool in Transportation and Operations. He was eventually given the duties of transporting German prisoners to the Hall of Justice in Nuremberg, Germany to stand trial for war crimes. After three years of service in the Army, he returned home to Eupora to complete his high school education. At this time, James volunteered for burial detail where he would meet trains that brought American fallen warriors home. While enrolled in Eupora High School, he was selected to be captain of the Maroon Yahoo football team. Upon receiving a football scholarship, James enrolled at Mississippi College to further his academic education. After college, he went to work in Aiken, South Carolina, at the Savannah River Plant as a supervisor in the Health Physics Division.
In 1964, James and his wife, Carolyn, made the decision to move their family to Webster County to operate the family farm. Of his accomplishments, he was most proud of introducing Hybrid Bermuda grasses and registered Santa Gertrudis cattle into this area of the state. For many years, James planted the original Bermuda pastures for Mississippi State University and surrounding states. He loved this great nation and wished to give back to it and to leave the land better than he found it. James’ legacy is one of a man who was a warrior, a cattleman, and a farmer who was generous and was quick to share a story.
However, his greatest source of pride was his family. James would often say he could not imagine where in life he would be without his loving wife of 57 years, Carolyn Carter Pogue. He was a proud and loving father of daughter Patti Pogue Swindle (Wade) of Eupora; his three sons, Bobby, Matt (Linda) all of Eupora, and Lance (Dixie) of Batesville, MS; his grandchildren, David Pogue (Mia) of Eupora, Jamie Swindle Walker (Steve) of Mantee, John Swindle (Chastity), Lee Swindle, Daniel Pogue, Jennifer Swindle, Luke Pogue (Lauren), Maggie Pogue Ballard (Nick), Chet Pogue all of Eupora, and Tyler and Meleah Pogue of Batesville, MS; his great- grandchildren, Carson, Connor, and Nealy Swindle, Gracie and Eian Pogue, Jayden Ballard, and Carter Pogue all of Eupora, and Corinne Walker of Mantee. James also leaves a nephew, Jimmy Crick, and niece Carolyn Crick Lane of Eupora, Tonya and Joe Huffman; his special caregivers, and family, and Tyler Huffman of Eupora as well as his cherished and loving dog, Sassy.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Robert Lee and Irma O’Neal Pogue; and his four sisters, Louise Pogue, Nell Pogue Crick, Ruth Pogue, Alice (Bob) Pogue Wood; and nephew, Billy Pogue Burgess.
James was a member of Tomnolen Baptist Church. The family received visitors Tuesday, October 30, 2012 from 5:00-8:00 pm at Oliver Funeral Home in Eupora.
