Obituary

David Molix, Jr. was born in the small rural community of Bains, LA.  He was the first of six children to the union of David Sr. and Winnie Molix on July 11, 1936.  God saw fit to call him to eternal rest on August 5, 2022.  He acknowledged Christ as his personal savior at the age of 13 and was baptized by the Rev. Major Payne at the Afton Villa Baptist Church. He graduated from John Dawson High School as valedictorian of his class.  He went on to Southern University where he became a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc.  He graduated Cum Laude with a BS degree in Horticulture and a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the USAR.  He earned a Master’s Degree in Education and a Post Graduate Certification in Supervision from UT El Paso. He taught science in the El Paso ISD, retiring with 33 years of service.  

Cpt. Molix served 6 years in the active Army, including a tour in Korea and one year in the Vietnam War. He was awarded the Combat Infantry Badge, the Army Commendation Metal, and the Bronze Star for Meritorious Service.

Upon moving to the DFW area, he united with the “Exciting” Singing Hills Baptist Church where he served faithfully with the Men’s and Greeter’s Ministries until his health failed.
