James Daniel Cowgill, 47, of Jacksonville went to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, May 31, 2017. He was born November 13, 1969, in Flint, Michigan to James and Jo Ann Cowgill.

Dan was preceded in death by his father, James L. Cowgill and his former wife, Michelle Cowgill. He is survived by his mother Jo Ann Cowgill; sister Rebecca Cowgill; and his son James, all of Jacksonville; and his closest uncle, Paul Rice of North Little Rock. He is loved and missed by his family and many friends.

Dan never knew a stranger. A resident of Arkansas for nearly 30 years, he was known by many for his kindness, his sense of humor, and his willingness to help others. His son, James, was his best friend. Dan enjoyed music, fishing and working on vehicles. He spent some of his happiest hours helping others with their vehicles.

Generous to his last, Dan was an organ donor. His final gifts will bless many.

    We loved you, Dan. And even though we never told you out loud, I think you knew it. I hope you did. We will sure miss you. There is already a void every time we walk outside. Love ya, Buddy.

    I worked with Dan at Target and also played softball with Dan. He was a great guy and truly will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.

    It’s been three years, today, and we still miss you. You were a good man, son, brother, husband, father and friend. People still share with us their memories of your kindness, generosity and sense of humor. As a man with faith in Christ, you “walked the walk.” We love you and were blessed to know you. Happy three year anniversary in heaven, Dan!
