Joe Neal Oliver

April 9, 1944 — February 26, 2024

Joe Neal Oliver, born April 9th 1944, departed peacefully from this world on February 26, 2024, at age 79. He was preceded in death by his father, Lawrence Roy Oliver, and mother Rudene Davie.  
Joe will be remembered as a man who loved to work, loved life, and loved his family. If you ever had the pleasure of dining in one of his restaurants you saw first hand the pride and hard work he put into creating his vision of the perfect dining experience. Whether he pulled up a chair to your table at Cattleman’s or he ran into you on the street, he never met a stranger. In times he wasn't working, Joe enjoyed sharing lunch with friends, traveling the world, and having a good laugh. He had a larger than life personality and an abundantly giving heart. But more than anything, Joe loved spending time with his family.

He is survived by one brother, David Fricks, of Texarkana, TX,  four children; Ron & wife Theresa Horton of Owasso, OK; Kathryn Diggs of Keller, TX; Cash and wife Sarah Oliver of Texarkana, AR; Megan Jo Oliver of Texarkana, TX.  Nine grandchildren; Conor and wife Samantha Horton, Jackson and wife Ilaria Horton, James Horton,  Alice Horton, Abigail Diggs and fiancé Lane Irwin, Chloe Diggs, Cullen Diggs, Brayden Oliver,  and Archer Oliver.

Joe was a kind and generous man, whose absence will be felt by many.

Memorial service will be held Monday, March 4th at St. James Episcopal Church at 1:00 pm. Reception following.
417 Olive St. Texarkana TX 75501
