For I am ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. 2 Timothy 4: 6-8

Quenson Cross, Sr., fondly known as “Buck” or “Buck Jones”, was born July 2, 1950 to the late Robert Jr and Emelda J. Cross. A precious life of humility and humbleness came to a halt on Saturday, June 13, 2020 when Buck made his eternal transition.

Buck was a native of Gibson, Louisiana and a resident of New Iberia, LA. He was baptized at an early age at the St. James Baptist Church by the late Rev. A. J. Pharr. Buck rededicated his life to Christ in 2010. His favorite scripture was the 23rd Psalm, which he loved to recite.

After graduating from Terrebonne High School in 1968, Buck worked in a number of employment areas, one of which included drafting and designs at McDermott’s in Morgan City, LA. Buck was a quiet, but fun-loving man who enjoyed hanging out with the young people. He didn’t bother anyone but you had better not bother him.

Buck enjoyed watching football and watched them until he lost his vision and then continued to listen to the football games.. His favorite phrase was “Yeah you right”. He loved life and he loved his children.

He leaves to cherish his memory his children: Shelly C. (Taras) Hughes of New Iberia,LA;  Quantrina Cross and Quanjalla C. (Saidi) Henry both of Lafayette, LA, Quenson Cross, Jr., of Vacherie, LA Patrice (Eric) Thomas and Jonathan White both of Gibson, LA, Quenecia Cross and Ju’Quincy Cross both of Dallas, TX; a sister, Edna Cosey of Baton Rouge, LA; a brother, Robert Cross, III of Monroe, LA; nine grandchildren and a host of great-grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Buck was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Emelda J.J.Cross; four sisters, Ruth C. Gray, Brunetta C. Stevenson, and Virginia C. Neverres, Katherine C. Bowens, maternal and paternal grandparents
