Obituary for James Warren Poe II

by Mason Brothers Funeral Homes

James Warren Poe, II “left the island” on April 11, 2019, at the age of 23 years old.

James was born December 16, 1995, in Valparaiso, Indiana to James and Zola Poe. The family relocated to Kentucky and James attended Hopkins County Central High School.

James played baseball, basketball, and football throughout elementary, junior high, and high school. His love for sports never faded. One of his favorite things to do was watching a game with fans of opposing teams so they could “trash talk” each other. The one thing that stood out the most about James was his love for his family. “FOE” (Family Over Everything) tattooed on his arm, said it all.

He is survived by his son, Rhys Houston Poe Davis; father, James Warren Poe; mother, Zola Poe; sister and brother-in-law, Shantell and Ricky Farrow; sister and brother-in-law, Leslie and Matt Scott; sister, Jamie Faith; sister and brother-in-law, Marcie and Marcus Armes; sister and brother-in-law, Jennifer and James Mullins; sister and significant other, Jackie Poe and David Briscoe; brother and significant other, Justin Poe and Emilie Ables; sister, Isabella Poe; and numerous nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, cousins, and countless friends.
