Mr. Adolphus Oxford, Jr. , fondly known as “Bro.” He was born January 23, 1938, in Parrott, GA, to the late Adolphus Oxford, Sr., and Annie Lee Oxford. He attended the public schools in Parrott, GA, and Webster County. He tended the fields for many years with his father. Later, life’s journey assigned him to be an officer at Terrell County Prison. Macgregor Golf was his place of employment, until he retired. He started his very own lawn service, where he serviced many people in the community, until his health began to decline. He was a member of Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Parrott, GA. During the years, he was a servant of God. He was a deacon, treasurer, member of Lamons Association of S.W. GA, Superintendent of Sunday School and organist of the First Macedonia choir. He was married to Gloria Jones Oxford for over 35 years. His enjoyed his breakfast club friends and early Saturday morning conversation on the round table with Arthur Clark, Jimmy Moses, Willie Oxford and David Shorter, with much laughter and many stories being told.
