Bobby McKoy

May 15, 1973 — June 24, 2021

Bobby Linwood McKoy, Jr, affectionately known as P-Funk, was born to Bobbie Linwood McKoy, Sr and Patricia Smith Borders on May 15, 1973 in Lumberton, NC. Bobby was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Milton Mack McKoy and Nina Jane McKoy and his maternal grandparents.

Bobby graduated from Lumberton Senior High School in 1991. He was known by his classmates as a great athlete, dancer, and someone who made them laugh. He especially loved playing basketball and breakdancing. He also had a keen ear for music and making beats. Many will remember him for his skills on the court at “the Rec”, or for being the “best breakdancer in Caldwell County.” As a natural people person, Bobby went on to make his career in sales. With over twenty years of sales experience, his customers often became life-long friends. Most of his career was spent at Peterson Toyota of Lumberton where his co-workers were like family.

Bobby knew the Lord. He gave his life to Christ and became a member of Antioch Baptist Church of Proctorville, NC. He loved to spend time studying the Bible and would share the things God would reveal to him with anyone who would listen.

Bobby was a proud son, father, grandfather and brother. He loved all of his family and friends very dearly. Bobby will be greatly missed by his parents, two daughters, Ceaira Davis (Quinshad), Maya Hunt (Goliath); granddaughter, Railey Hunt; brothers, Cedric Coleman (Amy), Ivery Barnes (Leighann), Dominique Betourney, Corey McKoy, Michael Lesane; great aunt, Nora Lee McQueen; aunts, Elnora Scott, Mildred McLaurin, Linda Evans, Debra Southerland, Robin Richardson; nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
