James Alvin Hooten

September 17, 1935 ~ June 9, 2023 (age 87) 87 Years Old


James Alvin Hooten, 87 of Klondike, Texas passed away Friday June 9, 2023.

Graveside services are scheduled for 2:00 p.m. Monday June 12, 2023, at Oaklawn cemetery with Brother Butch Burns officiating, with Hopkins County Military Coalition.

James was born in Klondike, Texas September 17, 1935, to James Otis and Edith Etaw (Roland) Hooten. They preceded him in death as well as his second wife Marcia Lea (Mitchell) Hooten, brother Shelby Roland Hooten, and sister Bennie Mae (Hooten) Auldridge.

James was in the United States Air Force, and he carried the knowledge of his military experience forward to his service with NATO as he traveled the world. He often said, as a young boy flying on his bike around the streets of his hometown of Cooper, Texas, that he’d never have dreamed of the adventures his future held as he went just about everywhere a person could go.

Humble. Handsome. Bold. And Brave. He loved his country and God.

James held a master’s degree from East Texas State University. He was a pioneer in the computer field before retiring in 1993 from positions as Lead Technical Training Specialist and Logistics Engineer at E-Systems.

Survivors include first wife Peggie Jane (Blakenship) Hooten, two daughters, Lisa Hooten Hadrosek (husband Paul) of Charleston, South Carolina, Gina Hooten Popp (husband Henry) of Dallas, Texas, two grandchildren, Henry James Hooten Popp, Jacqueline Georgia Hadrosek, and a sister Alma Lois (Hooten) Boyd of Charleston, Texas. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
