Shirley and family, we are sorry to hear that Billy Joe passed. I am Jan King, Frances and Mac Megahan's daughter. My dad wanted to be sure to tell you he has fond memories of you all at the Bowman family reunions at Lake Earling. I have enjoyed listening to his stories of Billy Joe and what a career he had with football! Dad has an amazing memory for almost 95. Again we send our heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

I am the youngest of the three oldest cousins as grand children of Bill and Nora Johnson. Bill was the oldest born in August of 1931, I am the youngest, born in May 1032. Billy Mack Pate was about half way between Bill and Me. Because of our living far apart, I only saw Bill 3 or 4 times before we moved to Monroe, LA, in the middle 80's. Only lived there for about 2 years, but wegot to see a lot of Bill and Shirley and became really good friends. We really enjoyed seeing them and really missed them when we moved away. So sorry that we didn't get to see much of them in the last 10 -15 years. We will miss Bill but we will stay close to Shirley! God rest his soul. Cousin, Jim

Joe Ferguson left a message on August 4, 2016:
Billy Joe Adcox was backbone of the Woodlawn football machine in the great years of the 60's and 70's. Coach Billy Joe took a bunch of slow white guys that couldn't run out of sight in a day and make them into the best offensive line in the state. His offensive lines helped make a lot of QBs jobs' easy and fun. There is an endless list of young men both on and off the field that Billy Joe Adcox influenced everyday. I know I am speaking for all my teammates, Coach Adcox was the rock that kept the machine going. We all know that coaches make great family sacrifices for there teams. God Bless Shirley and the family and I am thankful for your sacrifice and letting all of us be a part of Billy Joe's life.

To Shirley Adcox and Family, Our thoughts and prayers go out to each of you. Coach Adcox was one of the most influential individuals in my life. He was the hero and role model that so many young men needed at Woodlawn High and Fair Park High School in the 1960s. We were so Blessed to have known him and for him to be our mentor. There is another Angel in Heaven today! Kirby Ramsey
