March 20, 1939 — February 15, 2022

He was born on March 20, 1939, to the late Rassie and Mamie Lou Godfrey Presswood.  Cotton was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother who cherished each moment spent with his family.  A member of Cookson Creek Baptist Church, Happy Hearts, Bridgemakers, and a former Ruritan and Gideon, he loved life to the fullest.  Some of his fondest memories include the many camping trips along with the countless miles traveled with his family.  Cotton was dearly loved by everyone who knew him and will be deeply missed.
