|James (Jim) Hoke drifted off to be with the Lord on November 14, 2011. He is survived by his wife Molly, daughters Janelle Murray, Janette Miller, and Regina Coffman and husband Barry; son James Hoke and wife Brandi; brother Henry Hoke and wife Sherry; grandsons: Matthew Miller and wife Jenn, Michael Miller and wife Sarah, T.J.

Jim’s family moved to New Caney in 1948 where he grew up, married, and raised his own family. He was a hard working man who loved spending time with his family. Jim was always in pursuit of growing the biggest and best tomatoes, as well as finding the best fishing hole. He led by example and was a hero to his children and grandchildren who referred to him as “Super Paw Paw.” He was a member of the United Methodist Church and was a retired member of the IUOE Local 450. Jim maintained his sense of humor all the way to the end. He will be missed tremendously by those who loved him.
