Obituary for JAMES EARL GOLD

Mr. James Earl Gold, age 85, of Billings, Missouri, departed from this earth to his eternal home on Friday, May 10, 2019, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on April 5, 1934 in Union City, Missouri, the son of Lon and Vesta Jewel (Melton) Gold.

James was proud of working as a police officer in Crane, Missouri; and also, for Sheriff Tommy Walker in the Stone County Sheriff’s Department, as the last of the mounted patrol. He later was employed as a machine mechanic at the old Lily Tulip Plant in Springfield, Missouri, and it was during this time he met the love of his life, Betty Lea Brigance. They were wed on June 20, 1969. James was a member of the Hurley Community Baptist Church, Hurley, Missouri.

He loved coyote and bird hunting; traveling; swap meets; trail rides. James was known as a quiet gentle man.

James was preceded in death by his wife of 46 years, Betty, on August 21, 2015; a son, Earl Gold; a stepson, Gary Walton; a step grandson, Jason Gale Walton; and his parents.

James is survived by four children and their spouses, Steve and Donna Gold, Kathy Gold and Charlie Ayres, Kelly and Wayne Berry; and Kimberly and Arlynn Tucker; two stepsons and their spouses, Gale and Rhoda Walton, and Greg and Rosanne Walton; 14 grandchildren, Chad, Travis, Robin, Mikki, Caine, Shane, Tiffany, Ashley, Curtis, Brandon, Charity, James, BreeAnna, and MaKayla; 22 great grandchildren, Christian, Wyatt, Tyler, Logan, Cale, Cali, Zachary, Matthew, Haylee, Jack, Laitynn, Trinity, Curtis, Gracie, Mathew, Jason, Hunter, Brandon, Joshua, James, Jayla, and Sebastian; and a host of many other family members and friends.
