James “Sonny” Harrison Moats, 75, of Thomasville, NC, passed away on November 27, 2023. He was born March 25, 1948 in Sutton, WV to the late James Arthur and Goldie Estelle Moats.
Sonny was a wonderful man who will always be remembered for his love of hunting, fishing, and camping with his friends. He had a generous spirit and was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Sonny’s selflessness and kind nature endeared him to many, and he will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Sonny is survived by his loving wife, Anita Moats, his daughter Christy Anders, his son James Moats Jr, his granddaughter Faryl O'Neil, his brothers Earl Loye and Gary Lee, his sister Goldie Louise Snyder, and many in-laws, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Olen David, Arnie Denzil, and Paul Douglas, and his sisters Emma Jean, Pamela Sue, and Sylvia Frances.
He was a member of Northwest Church of Christ in Greensboro, NC where he served the Lord with a congregation he cherished.
