Obituary for William "Bill" Ellis Coxe, Sr.

William “Bill” Ellis Coxe, Sr., a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend, passed away peacefully on Monday, February 25, 2019 at the age of 80. He graduated from Walker High School in 1957 and later attended LSU. Bill was involved in a variety of businesses throughout his career beginning with supervising subdivision development for Coxe Construction, co-owner and manager of Builders Center Inc., in Baton Rouge. Bill also established American RV’s Inc. in Baton Rouge with his wife, Barbara, where together, they achieved great success and were one of the top RV dealers in the nation. During his later years, Bill established Bill Coxe Contractors where he primarily focused on residential developments. Much like his parents, Lamar and Bunchie, Bill was known for his love of family and his ever-present generosity towards others. Bill would tell anyone that he was truly blessed to have a life filled with an abundance of joy and happiness. In his spare time, Bill enjoyed watching the car races, driving his antique cars, and taking his family on spontaneous vacations. Bill is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Barbara Sibley Coxe; son, William E. Coxe, Jr.; daughter, Charlotte Coxe Lockhart and husband Mike; grandchildren, William E. Coxe, III, Steven E. Coxe, Elizabeth Lockhart Butler and husband Brennan, Brittany Jade Coxe, Michael Ellis Lamar Lockhart; great-grandchildren, Destiny Victoria Coxe, Rachel Mercedes Coxe, and Parker Joel Coxe; sister-in-law, Patsy Bankhead Coxe; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Lamar N. and Bernice “Bunchie” Stafford Coxe; brother, Lamar N. Coxe, Jr.; and daughter-in-law, Cynthia Greer Coxe. Pallbearers will be William Coxe III, Steven Coxe, Carey Coxe, Mike Sibley, Michael Lockhart, and Brennan Butler. Honorary pallbearers are Larry Milton, Ken Montgomery, Larry K. Sullivan, Travis Clark, Rick Simmons, Stanley Fuqua, John Cox, and Bobby Coxe.
