Robert Paul Lockett
A memorial service for Robert Paul Lockett, age 53, of Jacksonville is scheduled for 4:00 p.m., Saturday, April 10, 2021 at the Wallace-Thompson Funeral Home Chapel.
Mr. Lockett passed away April 6, 2021. He was born November 27, 1967 in Pittsburg, TX, to Bobby and Eleanor Lockett. He graduated from Rusk High School and from Lon Morris College with a degree in business. He was employed at Commercial Building Supplies located in Tyler, TX, as a small engine mechanic.
Paul truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures: spending quality time with his family and friends, fishing, cooking and eating great food, and playing golf. He also shared his love of music with his brother Joey. Paul was a devoted father and grandfather with a giving soul; he never knew a stranger and was the last to pass judgment on others.
He was preceded in death by his wife Lisa Brooks Lockett and father Robert (Bobby) Lockett. He is survived by his mother Eleanor Lockett of Jacksonville; brother and sister-in-law Joey and Wendy Lockett of Jacksonville; son and daughter-in-law Corey and Chelsea Lockett of Grapeland; daughter and son-in-law Courtney and Chase Sutton of Palestine; stepson Devin Crow of Jefferson; grandchildren Chloe, Caisley, Keaten and Lacee, as well as niece and nephew Krista and Collin Lockett; multiple cousins and grand niece and nephew Alexis and Jeremiah.
