I am so sorry for the loss of your precious mother. I loved her dearly. We had lots of good times over the many years. She was the first person I met when we moved to Midland.

I was saddened to hear that Mr. Koch (Charles) has passed. He was a wonderful benefactor to and visionary for the Midland Swim Team and touched so many lives with his generosity and energy. I can still see him walking the pool deck in his officials uniform, usually with a stopwatch hanging from his neck cheering for Gretchen and Chris as they competed!! I also remember how quick he was to congratulate kids after a good swim or say a few supportive words after a disappointing race. Even after kids finished their competition days he offered advice on colleges, jobs, etc. Mr. Koch (Charles) made the world a better place and will be missed. May he Rest In Peace and be remembered as a blessing to us all.

I got the opportunity to work with Jimmy for a short time, he was one of the kindest person you would have a chance to meet. He was always happy and smiling. He will be missed. I wish his family peace and hope they can heal in this time of mourning. Thanks for being my friend, Jimmy.

Debra was always a bright light! I first met her at the bingo hall I worked at. And then later when she married my grandfathers brother. I was sad to hear of her passing. May God's comfort & strength be felt by all those closest to her.

Last November Shelby and I were fortunate to attend an evening dinner and next morning get together in Lubbock with George and Kathy and other friends, quite a reunion. George will always be remembered by us as a great guy. He was Shelby's, and family, next door neighbor in Eunice and our parents also thought the world of George and Jodie. George and my Dad, Tom Scarborough, enjoyed working with George at Shell Pipeline. All our love to Kathy and the Family. George was a very special help to me when my Wife Suzy passed away in 2018.

My deepest sympathy for Debbie's loved ones. This earth will miss the joy and glory that Debbie brought each day. Her strength through her battle was a testament to her faith. Praise God for her and the fact that she is whole now in His presence. I long for the day when we meet again. She will always remain in my heart as an example of God's servant. Thank You Debbie.

Esther and I went to school together from Kindergarten until we graduated in 1981. She always had a smile on her face, and always willing to lend a hand when needed. Our Jr and Sr year’s, she was the Drum Major and I was the assistant, she never let the fact that I was her “assistant” go to her head, instead she was always said “we were equal, and would take turns.” This is how she was her entire life, never wanted to be “above anyone, but everyone be equal.” I remember her mom picking us up from school some days, she would take me to her house, feed me some homemade tortillas before I went home, her mom was one of the best cooks around. I asked Esther one day is she took over her mother’s tortilla making skills, she informed me that no one would ever make them like her, this is so true. Belia would make sure that several dozen were sent with us when we would go to San Angelo for a week of band camp, Esther always shared with us, but we also knew we had to ration them out or they would all be gone the first day. After graduation, I got a job at a car dealership in Monahans, we were looking for another office person so I asked if she was interested, she got the job! So, for about a year, we would ride back and forth together we had some good talks, lots of laughs, and shared a lot of memories from school. When I lost my husband a few years ago, Esther found out and reached out to me. She came over and we spent a day together laughing, crying, she listened endlessly while I just babbled on about my life, she sat quietly beside me and held my hand and just listened. We saw each other at the grocery store a few months ago, visited in the middle of the isle, had a few laughs, she bragged on how well her children turned out, had to show me pictures of her grandchildren, she told me “You know, I have not lived a perfect life, but God sure has blessed me with my kids and grandkids, makes me proud to know that they are the closest thing to being perfect.” Her face lit up as she talked about them. Of course, at that moment, I had to show her pictures of my grandkids, and brag on my kids also….. this is what parents do! LOL My heart goes out to all of her family, co-workers, and friends, the world was brighter because of her, it will never be the same, but Esther was never a selfish person, she always wanted to help other people, and so part of her will live on through someone else, I just hope they know that they have a part of a very special, loving person inside of them. God Bless you all, rest in peace Esther, you will truly be missed. Edverna Tackett Allen

Nita Holland posted on 8/10/20
Although I had very little contact with Terri, she made such an impact on my life. Her mother in law, Nora, and I worshipped together at North A Church of Christ. As Nora aged, Terri was such a gracious caregiver for Nora even as Terri was dealing with her own struggles. She always wore a smile and I know she will be greatly missed.

Sorry to learn of Pete’s death a year after the fact. I enjoyed communicating with him over the years about his time with the Chanute, Kansas Athletics of the KOM league in 1950.

John was one of the best friends a person could ask for. He would literally have given the shirt off of his back for a friend in need. He was my brother in speech and debate and my lifelong friend. Gone far too soon. Prayers for healing to his family

Shelley Navratil posted on 8/6/20
I will certainly miss John's infectious sense of humor and his witty personality. His time on earth was way too short. I am grateful I got to know John and agree with him on facebook often. He was a very intelligent and that was not afraid to speak the truth. He loved his wife and children with all his heart and will be dearly missed. The world won't be quite right without him.

I have known Bill most of my life. He married my sister Jewel in 1951. He was like a big brother to me. He tried to teach me to drive. He tried to drive me to my high school graduation, but the water was too deep from a rare West Texas flood. Bill was a good man, a good husband and father. He will be missed.

Recuerdo la primera vez que fuimos hacer nuestros impuestos con el Señor Luna ya hace 7 años. Un hombre muy humilde de corazón con una sonrisa siempre. Antes de salir ya me avía invitado a tomar el curso para trabajar ahí. Fue un hombre muy trabajador con un amor enorme por su esposa, hija y nietos. Amable con cada persona que llega a con el. Fue mi mentor durante el tiempo que estuve trabajando con el. Siempre empujándome a mejorar en mi trabajo. Cuando alguien que amamos muere, no hay forma de evitar la tristeza y el tener un vacío en el corazón, pero tenemos La Paz y el consuelo que ya está junto a Nuestro Padre Celestial. Mi más sentido pésame.

My deepest condolences to David’s family. I’ve know David for 24 years. I first met him when we worked together at West in Odessa back in 96. He was one of the top performers. This was I'm guessing when he started or already was doing taxes. He did mine and my family's taxes for about 20 years. He was such a friendly funny and good Man. He always bragged about his grandchildren and his beautiful wife and daughter. We are truly Going to miss him. Don’t think of him as gone away his journey’s just begun, life holds so many facets this earth is only one. Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and the tears in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years. Think how he must be wishing that we could know today how nothing but our sadness can really pass away. And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched… for nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much. RIP David Luna.

My first memory of Terry occurred shortly after our family moved to Beaver County when my father became pastor of the rural church Terry's family attended. Shortly after our move Terry's dad, Leon, "invited" me to help work calves. Terry and I each held the legs on the working end of the operation and Leon did the "operation". Terry was an old pro at this but I was a "green horn" at doing something I had never imagined before. Even though it was work the Jacobs family made it fun. My most vivid memory of Terry occurred a couple of years later when one afternoon we were called to the home of an elderly neighbor couple where the gentleman passed away suddenly at home. My father and I arrived at the home about the same time as Terry and his father. Leon was a man who liked to joke but when the occasion called for it he kept his cool. He took one look at Uncle Ed still sitting in his rocking chair where he had passed and immediately directed Terry and I pick up Uncle Ed and lay him on the bed in the bedroom. I looked at Terry and he looked at me. Neither of us had ever touched a dead body before but we quickly did as we were instructed. It was a memory of Terry that I will never forget. Deanna and I send our love and condolences.

Dear Patti and family. Joe and I go back to playing 6 man football at Coahoma long ago. We lived across Highway 80 from each other in the 40's at Sand Springs, and what a buddy he was- taught me lots of "things". Later Cheryl and I got to be with the both of you at the Cosden "25" party each year for close to 40 years. I was very honored to be BEST man (as I always mentioned to Joe) at your wedding , such a beautiful day! May God be with all of you, I am very pleased to be a part of your past and present. Love, Glenn

Brent was a special soul that saw the best in everyone. He was one of the first people I met when I came to the McAllen area from New Orleans and always made me feel welcome. He always was very generous with his time and money to others in need. He will be so missed by many. Everyone loved Brent and he loved them. He definitely was a unique individual and one that will never be forgotten! So sad he is gone !!

Joe was never a sit still husband, daddy, worker, golfer, friend. He was always one of the first in line of leadership in all he did, athletic skills, intelligence well beyond his education, daddy/father to a herd of boys that grew into solid men of today. All because Joe was ready/willing/able to get things moving and done. His whole family is like that, without compromise- get it done- NOW. When Joe was at least well past 40- he could water ski on a canoe paddle well enough to teach younger boys he was still the teacher. Patti --Great Job you have done raising boys and Joe. We already miss you Joe, and know you're still giving direction.

Harriet was my mother's roommate at Mabee. Over the three years they were roommates, my sister Betsy, and I would enjoy visiting Harriet and having lunch with them.

Captain Farmer was my favorite supervisor when I joined the Big Spring Police Dept. in 1977. He was an outstanding leader and mentor, encouraging me to continue my education. I ultimately graduated from UTPB in 1980. I continued to enjoy a lasting friendship with Sherrill at the Howard County CSCD (probation dept), which continued into my career as a TDCJ Parole Supervisor over the Big Spring Dist. Office. I also enjoyed friendly informal shooting competition with him as he was an outstanding marksman. I know Sherrill mentored many young officers always providing encouragement and direction. He will be sorely missed.

My fondest memory of all is the time when my parents and I visited my Uncle Sherwood and Aunt Dorthy in Midland, Texas. We would only stay for the afternoon,and all the adults were so happy to see each other and visit. Being a young girl who wanted to be an artist I was drawn to the beautiful art on the wall. I was so moved by the painting of the rusty old truck that I could not move. You see my father had one like it in his pasture but I had never considered it to be BEAUTIFUL! Not until that day. Aunt Dorthy found me frozen in time, in awe of such simple things made so glorious. She told me that they were gifts from Travis. What a blessing and a gift,that now residing in heaven. You have touched all our lives, through your perspective of world.My prayers and thought are with our family. Much love to you Denise. Your cousin Rebecca Ann Beckham

My condolences to the family. I knew Mrs. Whiting from LCRL. My parents were members and my dad was very involved with the food bank also. He put us to work unloading the truck and packing boxes. She was always there when we were and I do have fond memories visiting with her and listening to her stories.

I didn't know Mrs. Whiting all that well and, after reading about her life, just in her obituary, I wish I had known her better. But I do know her son Kenneth and his family. Now I know one reason, possibly of many, why they are such fine people. Ken, no one knows how another person feels. But I have a feeling that your mother's long, vibrant, loving, and spiritual life may make her absence a little easier to bear. May God bless you all.

I first met Harriet In August of 2017 when I was in rehab at The Mabee center. In July of 2018 when I started volunteering with Home Hospice, I would see Harriet at Mabee bingo. I am so blessed to have known such a wonderful lady. I loved looking at all of her necklaces. The last time I saw her was at Mabee Bingo back in February, right before we shut down for Covid. I told her that day, I don’t think I have ever seen you with the same necklaces twice. My thoughts and prayers are for her family. In deepest sympathy Linda Miles Midland Home Hospice.

I was a fellow band member with DR. Daniel at Gaffney, S.C. H e was a good friend and liked by all. I have many fond memories of Dr. Daniel while he was a student at Gaffney. Sometimes the old memories are the best ones. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family during this time.

Pam Humes posted on 7/27/20
I came to know Dr. Daniel, when my father, Parker Humes, served on the Midland College Board of Trustees. I remember when they were interviewing candidates for the position and how he came home and said how he was so impressed with him. After the dinner that the board members and their wives went to, my mom was equally impressed. My father often talked about how what a great leader he was and how the college was prospering under his guidance. I also was in contact with him as I worked for my father at that time and he would often come to the office to visit with him when he was president of the board. He treated me with kindness and respect. I will always remember him for that. He and his wife also adopted one of our puppies when our Scottish Terrier dog had a litter. That dog was very special to them and they always talked about how gracious they were that they got her from us. I send my deepest sympathies and love to his family. God Bless him and may he have eternal rest.

Dennis Sever posted on 7/26/20
If you read Dr. Daniel’s obituary and columns about him in the MRT, you’ll see how much of a national and local leader he was. He wasn’t just a man. he was a powerful force. He was also my friend and mentor. I don’t know why he “took me to raise,” but he challenged me and encouraged me every step of the way. Under his driving guidance, I rose from faculty member to Vice-President and am proud of the changes I helped bring to Midland College. There was no rest during his presidency. Often he would say, ”If you’re not moving forward, you’re going in reverse.” Every time we finished a project, there was a new one underway. There certainly was no shortage of “OTEs” (Opportunities To Excel) for me and many others. I am forever grateful to him. My heart goes out to DeeDee and the family.

On behalf of Petroplex Acidizing in Midland , Texas, we extend our condolences to the family of Raymond Luna. Raymond was a longtime employee with Petroplex. Throughout the years of his employment with Petroplex he touched many lives with his strong work ethic and amazing humor. Many of his coworkers spent hours and hours on a well site with Raymond and have wonderful memories of those times. Because of the expertise and professionalism that he brought to the company, everyone knew that when they were going out to the field with Raymond, they would be as well prepared as could be and in good hands with him just being there. He always had a way of being able to teach someone what he knew about his work and was well respected for that. His friendship and companionship was very special to us all. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family.

Gary & Linda Farnum posted on 7/21/20
Carolyn and family. Remember your days as your days ahead are largely based on the life you and Roy built together. Life says, “Love never gives up.” When that paragraph is read from 1 Corinthians 13. I commend it to you to memorize, 1 Corinthians 13. Spend more time thanking God for your husband and spiritual partner thanking him and Roy for all god gave you both together. Pray for him earnestly and daily, asking the Lord to help you to practice the self-giving, sacrificial love that He showed to us on the cross. Jesus accepted the terrible injustice as the Father’s will. Treat yourself as though You, Roy and Jesus ,everyday ahead, exactly as you would wish to treat Christ if He came into your home. Can we do that? Can you do that? No, not by ourselves, but we are not alone. God speaks peace to our souls. “Do not fear, for I am with you,” He says. “Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” God bless you. Gary & Linda Farnum Borrowed: M GOING HOME WITH JESUS Words and music--Carroll McGruder (Chorus) I'm going home with Jesus in the twinkling of an eye, I've made my reservations for a mansion in the sky; I may not know the moment, or I may not know the day, But I know that I'll be leaving when He calls His Church away! I'm listening for the trumpet to sound most any time, And a crown of life that's waiting, thank God will soon be mine! I got my invitation thru a place called Calvary, By the precious blood of Jesus, the trip's been paid for me. (Chorus) The Captain of the vessel is calling get on board, And the destination's Heaven, safe on that crystal shore; Where we'll meet again the Savior and our loved ones who have gone, There to live for all eternity, oh, yes, we're going home!

I remember so vividly visiting Great Aunt Dorothy and Clayton at their farm. They were always so welcoming and they’d let us kids explore to our hearts’ content. Great Aunt Dorothy was always quick to smile as quick to offer a seat on her couch or a meal at her table. It didn’t matter that I was only a great nephew. She welcomed me like one of her own grandkids. Later once they’d moved into their RV she still had the same welcoming presence and was so genuinely pleased to get to visit with us. Her deck of cards was always ready and her cantaloupe was ready to be shared as well. I know she is in a better place now. Her light and life and love will live on in us all who remember her. Much love to all of her family, Peter Chris Gregg

Where do I start, Ramon and I became friends in High School 87-89 and remained friends throughout our lifetime... Our children became best friends, our families always stayed connected. Ramon was everyones friend.... everyone knew and loved him! He was always the first guy to pitch in to ANYONE in need. His smile was bigger than he was, his hugs stronger than he was, his words always perfectly spoken... The love he had and showed children was huge!!! His love and devotion to HIS OWN FAMILY- BEYOND BEAUTIFUL!!! His love for his wife Debra... the kind of love most people can only dream of. Ramon will be missed by so many that he personally touched in some way... Those who knew him will forever be blessed to call him a friend... HE WAS AWESOME! my condolences to his wife, kids, grandkids, siblings and the 100's/1000's of friends he had!

Dear Daniel and DeeAnn, Our thoughts and prayers are with the both of you upon the passing of your Dad. He was so loved and tremendously respected by everyone who knew him. I wish Mike and I could be there for the visitation but know that we are there in spirit. Your Dad was always so cheerful, so kind and willing to share his knowledge and experience with everyone. He also served our country so bravely but so humbly. I remember when Marcus Luttrell (Lone Survivor) was at our Habitat for Humanity event (I was Marcus' liaison) - Marcus had agreed to sign his book for attendees, which he graciously did, but he could not wait to meet your Dad - he was in awe of your Dad and I remember that to this day. Herman is already sorely missed and the both of you are in our prayers!

Marilyn was Gary and I’d lake neighbor. We enjoyed her and Odey ( Forgive my spelling) being our neighbors at JB. First with Odey passing, we really did not even phathom that Marilyn was as ill as she was. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our very exceptional neighbors that have become a part of our lives there. We so miss their presence and life at our lake place that will never be the same. They were a comfort and a pleasure to have around. She really threw herself into cleaning up Odeys hoarding, like she was going to live forever. Marilyn’s decline was so fast, so so unexpected. So very sorry for your family’s loss. She and Odey will be missed forever from us also. Prayers being said for all of you.

My sincere sympathy to the family, Marilyn was a dear friend for many, many years. Our paths crossed in so many ways. First was her twin Linda married Wayne’s cousin.

Love y’all and you have been and will remain in my prayers.

You're truly one of a kind & abundantly rich with Love! Your spirit was such a sweet, funny, welcoming, calming, giving without expecting anything in return.

I got to see her at Manor Park in November, 2019 for a nice visit when I was there in Midland, I am so thankful for that visit.

My memory is as children one summer day, we rode double on horse back to town and went through the drive through at Dairy Queen for a coke!!! That was quite the adventure for a little Army Brat that never even rode a horse!! She was my hero that day!!! We remained very close for the rest of her short live and spoke on phone almost every morning. I would say,” good morning sunshine,” what are you gonna do today? She would say,” nuuuthen” in her best West Texas Draw.... We always ended our conversations with a big “I LOVE YOU!!!! Glee I will miss you forever. R.I.P. And be the best angel you can...

Glee suggested we go to Luckenbach. MaMaw Ory said she never been, so it was on!!! Glee, Ginger, MaMaw Ory and I loaded up! We all sang “ Luckenbach , TX “ over and over... Love you Glee

I had the pleasure of meeting Pete thru his son, Dan. My first encounter with Pete was to experience his love for fishing and Lake Amistad. Then i got to play golf , his real love, with him in New Mexico. You couldn't help but feel his gentle spirit when you were around Pete and when he would ask about my family, there was a genuine concern. My family just happen to be vacationing in Colorado at the same time the Fischer's were having a family reunion there, So i showed up claiming to be long lost Son of Pete's.. Pete was in on it and enjoyed every minute of the prank. Blessings to the clan during this time. Look up, to God, for comfort. Dale-

Ricky-yes I still call him Ricky-was the kindest soul you would ever want to meet. Very soft-spoken (where his brothers & sister not so much!)-maybe since he was the baby of the family, he couldn’t get a word in edgewise that he just learned at an early age to not even try to compete! Ricky was the sweetest & most caring man you would ever want to meet & I am blessed to have known him & even more so to be his cousin. Rest In Peace sweet Ricky- we are all going to miss that big ole sweet smile & great hugs. Cousin Reunions will never be the same. Love you, Kathy

Ms. LaDell and family. I cannot help but think of the smile on Gene’s face during his 90th birthday parade and celebration. He was so happy to see everyone and didn’t want to wait for the cars to come to him. God made sure we were left with precious memories. Gene was a wonderful man. He didn’t say a lot but when he did you better listen because it was important. LaDell you and Gene helped me so graciously with my momma. I’m sure she is showing him all around heaven. I know you take comfort in knowing when he passed from this life he stepped into glory. Gene, Gene the dancing machine will be greatly missed. Love you all! Jim and Amanda Davis

Leo and I were friends over 70+ years, from grade school-college and later as business friends. He was “one of a kind” and you never doubted if you were in a fight, who’s side he was on. I will miss him very very much and extend my sympathy to his family and many friends and associates.

As a long time friend, I remember the outgoing and sincere nature of her personality. She was always uplifting with that dazzling smile. She called me not long ago and I cherish that conversation about life’s challenges and other shared dear friends wee. Who graduated from Hobbs HS were a close-kmit bunch ,especially our class. Linda was one of those that I always looked up to and missed later in life. I know she has been greeted in Heaven by so many family members and longtime friends who passed before her. What a glorious celebration they are enjoying. May God bless you still here who will miss her.

When we think of our dear friend Gene, we think of celebration. To us he enjoyed life as though it was a celebration at all times with his easy laughter and quick and kind smile. He had his trials and times of hardship like we all endure in this life, but always handle them with grace and moved on to embrace life with joy. He will be missed. How wonderful to have been a part of celebrating his 90th birthday just a few days ago. We can just imagine what a grand celebration he is enjoying now that he has entered into his perfect rest. We love you, dear ones, LaDell, Jan & Jimmy & Family. Your friends, Bobby & Martha Matthews

I am so sorry to hear of Pete's passing. He was a dear man that I have known for the last 34 years. I got to keep up with him because he lived right across the street from my daughter and her family. They loved Pete and kept up with him on a daily basis. I played a lot of golf with Pete over the years and was always in awe of his ability on the golf course. I know he loved his family and always was talking about his grandkids. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. I pray God's blessings on his family as they go through this time of grief.

I'm not sure if Aunt Margaret Ann ever realized it but, in a way, she was a distant mentor for me in my fledgling years learning to be a writer. She and M.H. gave me a Roget's Thesaurus for my graduation gift from high school and I still have that amazing resource. Over the years when I would drag the book out to find just the right word to fit a story, I would think of her and Uncle M.H. and those wonderful 4th of July parties at the golf course. Thank you Margaret Ann for all you did for me and everyone else in the family. I won't be there to send you off, but then, you're already where you have always intended to be. I'll see you again by-and-by, of that I am quite sure.

What a beautiful life she lived.

Sonny was a newspaper editor's dream carrier. There were never complaints and there were never misses. His customers got their papers when they were supposed to and where they wanted them. Just think, in his 55-plus years, he threw about 2 MILLION newspapers! I never recall a cross word about anyone and I never remember his missing work. To his family, thank you for allowing the Herald to share him all those years ... when the weather was both good and bad ... and take care of his customers. I'm so sorry for your loss, but know there are some interesting Herald stories being shared by those guys who are now in Heaven. Gob bless.

I've been gone from Texas for close to 50 years, so I didn't know about all of Jerome's accomplishments. What a guy!! Good for him.

Good bye to another outstanding member of the class of 65. At the 50 year reunion, Bob regaled me with some great baseball stories. To wit: He's playing 3rd base against Asher. The hitter smacks a foul that hits about 3/4s of the way up the deepest light pole in left but the ball bounces back to him. Bob: "dammn, this thing is flat on two sides!" He had many other baseball stories equally poignient. RIP, my friend.

Alice, I hope you and your family are coping with the tragic death of Frankie. She was a true friend of Lynn and myself. I have many fond memories of the friendship Frankie and I had in high school. We had a great time with all of the stuff we did together, such as: playing tennis; treating sun burn blisters; dragging main street; stopping at the Tip Top Drive Inn get Purple Cow drinks and eating at her Grandmother’s house where good food was always on the table. Those were some of the good-ole days we had while at Big Spring High. As we became older Frankie and I would reminisce on the phone about the old times together. I will dearly miss those discussions and her kind remarks. Lynn also remembers playing a vocabulary game with Frankie which they called highbrow-lowbrow. One would say a highbrow word, such as exacerbate and the other would replace it with a common word such as aggravate. Often, they would think of a word and then realize neither one knew what it meant. Lynn and I are sending prayers and love to all of the family. Laura and Lynn Laws

Our paths will cross again. God bless

We will all have different memories of Bobby, but in remembering him there will be two common threads for all of us. Always in evidence were his pleasantness and ever present smile. He owned them. I am comforted in that he and my long time good friend, Karen made each other very happy and had a great life living close to Whitney, Kyle and the adored little boys. We will let those who have gone before enjoy him until the time that we get there and then they will have to share. I am thinking of the smile that awaits us.

Dear Karen and family, I'm so sorry to learn of Bobby's passing. His gift of time to the Chevron Retirees Association was far more valuable than he knew! He was a source of information and help when we saw so many folks leaving our area--and leaving the rest of us to pick up the pieces that made our group strong. I especially appreciated Bobby's knowledge of Texaco because that's who my late husband worked for many years ago. He gave beautifully to help out when I know that he would much rather have been with grandchildren and you than planning for items for the retirees! What wonderful memories he has left behind and How Interesting was that bright mind! How unlucky were we who didn't know! My best to you and love to your family..Kaye Horchler

Karen So sorry to hear about Bobby's passing. We were such good friends growing up. In the same kindergarten. 6th and 7th grade at Jefferson. Played lots of baseball together through the years. In HS me, Bobby, Dewey Black and Gary Van Antwerp hung out together and were usually up to no good. When he went into the Air Force and I joined the Navy...we wrote letters to keep in touch. As you know, we were roomies at OSU in 70-71. Monday nite football had just started on TV...nothing like grabbing a pizza and watching Howard Cosell and Dandy Don Meredith on MNF. Lots of good memories. I'm glad we got to visit at the reunion and I will really miss him.

Dear family, when I had the call from Kerri that her Mother had passed, it was a shock and I did not want to believe this news. After that call, I called my family plus friends that needed to know as they are prayer warriors, ready to ask our Heavenly Father for peace and comfort for all the days ahead for all of you. Since that call, I have thought of many, many good times with all our family especially at Christmas time. Also outstanding are the visits when Dona and Duane would come to our house for a few days visit with Jerry and me. Such good times. Dona loved her family so very, very much. She was loved and had a welcoming committee at Heaven's Gate and her pains were gone. Love to all from me and our family, Dorothy Rogers

I have found memories of Mrs. Elms. She attended the same church my family attended in the late 80’s. She was always so sweet to me. She would baby sit me and let me come over to her house. She gave me white bread with sugar on it as a snack. I loved it! I wish I had more memories to share with the family but I was only 2-3 years old when I knew her. Even though I don’t have a ton of specific memories, I remember she was very kind and I liked being around her. After we moved away from Mullin, I would ask my parents if we could go visit her. Even in high school and college I thought about her and wondered how she was doing. I thought of her today while I was thinking about my own grandparents. I want her surviving family to know she has a special place in my heart.

Dear D'Nae and Billy Bob and all, we are so very sorry for your loss. Our memories with Terry goes back to the 1980s and mainly include my guys, Jerry and Kelly and the special times with trapshooting. Windy Hill Gun Club near Big Spring and managed by Truett and R. C. Thomas, was the local gathering place for the guys in that sport two or three afternoons a week. Also, in practice sessions were kids in the 4-H trapshooting team. Those were happy times and your Terry was often there with his friendly ways and encouraging words. May our Heavenly Father comfort you all in the days ahead and as you remember your loved one and the happy times with Terry Brown. Love to all, Dorothy Rogers, Kelly and Renee and Sherri

Lela, It was with a profound sadness that I learned of Mike’s passing. I offer heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Mike held a special place in my heart because he played an important part in saving my flying career while we were both going through UPT at Vance. I had managed to mess up a couple of formation check rides in the T-38 and was getting one more chance to “prove my worth” on another formation checkride with the squadron commander as my evaluator. I got to pick which student/IP combo would fly #2 with me. Wanting someone who was a good “stick” and would give me the best chance of passing, the obvious choice was Mike. He came through with flying colors, enabling me to pass that ride and go on to fly for another 40 years. I am so glad we got to see you and Mike at our last reunion. I know he’s in a better place now, but he will be missed. Here’s a the host... of the men we boast... the US Air Force. Keep the blue side up.

Over the past year and a half Lewis has been a huge influence on my life and sobriety. He was a spiritual father to me, he baptized me, was an encourager, always ready to listen and point me in the right direction, a light as I navigated my way out of a very dark period of time. I could turn to him in times of trouble and times of praise. He ministered to me and prayed with me often and also my mother. He even made efforts to reach out and minister to my father and father of my children. I want to celebrate who I knew him to be and honor his life with continuing to pursue a higher way of living, not only for my family but for others. Who I knew Lewis to be was a strong spiritual man in the Lord, positive, uplifting and eager to help anyone in need. My heart goes out to his family. I will forever greatly miss him and remember how he inspired me to grow to be a better follower of the Lord, mother, daughter and friend. I love you Lewis, and nothing can ever replace the value your counsel added to my life and how you impacted my heart.

Mike had a great impact on our lives and we know that impact will continue in his legacy and in the lives of his children and grandchildren. Our prayers are for your peace and comfort in the days that are ahead. One day we will all be changed and together for eternity. Love and prayers, Monte and Bevra Carruth

Charlie will be sorely missed around here. I always enjoyed talking with him and all of our guys liked him-how could they not? - my husband especially. Charlie always dropped what he was doing to lend a hand. I called on him numerous (and I do mean numerous!) times to help out when I was the only one in the shop receiving deliveries. (Please see the "He's Got Your Back" photo on the event timeline). Eventually, when I would call, he would answer the phone "yea Boss" -- so funny! I will miss that. He was a tough cookie with a gentle heart. May God Bless and Rest his soul.

My memory of all the fun times that we had as kids in yard at Granny and Pawpaw house came rushing back. Crawdad fishing at the creek, playing chase around the house, and hide and seek in the barn. Then always looking for you in the Longhorn band during halftime presentations. Life passes too fast but very happy to have the memories.

Mike was so extraordinary in that he was so brilliant, so giving of his time and talents to others, very wise, great sense of humor, patient, and a blessing to all who knew him, even for all too short of a time. Thank you Lord for Mike. He meant so much to so many and his memory has enriched me for the knowing. Peace be with you all!

Beverly, David, Jerry - When we were young, we all thought we had forever and a day. Then forever goes by in the blink of an eye, and then comes the day. I have been looking over my photos of our last trip to the Big Bend in ‘69 just before I left for the Navy. We sure were a good looking group! The ‘Four Musketeers’, of which I have our group photograph on my bookcase in the office across from where I sit at my desk. I can easily flash back to the Mustang...the RoadRunner... I remember one day when we felt so cool to put on our paper-thin moccasins, and proceeded to walk from my house on Morrison, down Birdwell to 3rd, all the way down to Gregg, then south to the Wagon Wheel, and back to my house! What were we thinking? I remember one day we spent hours in my driveway putting the 4-track (yes four!) in his Mustang. I could go on and on... I will always treasure our last visit at the Band Reunion in ‘17. What a good friend he will always be to me. It was a gift from God to have known him. God be with you all at this time.

I am very sorry to hear about the loss of George. I have been blessed to know George through work and met the Goodsons through the business over 10 years ago. Most people wouldn't count salesman and vendors as close friends, but George was always welcoming, always made time to spend time with me and would never let the conversation turn to business before getting an update on my kids and see a couple pictures of them first:-). We enjoyed many meals together and I always enjoyed hearing him talk about family and his time at the lake house he was looking forward to with his family. In business he was always honest and loyal to work with. Our Thoughts and Prayers at Rice Christ, Inc. are with the entire family.

From the first time I met Georgia, her smile just captivated me and for some reason I felt so close to her as if I had always known her. I always looked forward to seeing both of you at Mass on Saturday mornings, your loving care for her and her sweet words always made my day, but most of all it was the fact that without saying a word and just through your example, you taught us all on those mornings the true meaning of love. May God bless and comfort you in the knowledge that she is now in the magnificence presence of God, free of pain and suffering and in the company of the Holy Family, surrounded by all the angels and saints in heaven.

It’s good that you point out that cremation is more affordable than having a traditional burial. I’d like to save my family money after I die, so I’m considering having myself cremated. I’m going to look for a good funeral home in my area that offers cremation services.

Heartfelt prayers for all the family! Prayers for Jason that he can find Peace without his father. We loved Pat beyond words for he was honestly a true "Light" in this world for all who knew him. Every time I would see him that huge smile would just light up the world. Pat was my dad's boss at HCJC in the maintenance department (Bo Bokelman) and we were so blessed to have him in our lives. Dad just treasured every minute they both had to spend together for his spunk was contagious and always full of laughter. Big Spring will miss him terribly but we will find happiness in knowing he is with our Lord and feeling no pain. God be with the family. Love, Bo and Linda

He was the most important and respected man in my life. I wasnt always perfect. One thing he will never know is how i model my after him. It took awhile but i figured it out. All those times you said ill never steer you wrong i was listening. I remember when he lived on morrison he would get in the back yard and pitch to me. Always having to get my homeruns out of ed and helens yard. I remember going to the football games with you and being proud to sit with you. One special memory that always comes to mind i was in 8th grade. We were playing in sweetwater. I used to always look up and look for my dad and grandad. That day i looked up no dad but grandad was there like always. That day i caught my one and only TD pass of my short lived football career. He never missed a little league game or babe ruth game in my life. I Love You Grandad Tiger (Lance)

Sweet memories of E.J. and Barbara at the bridge table. I was a partner with Barbara more than E J , but they added a spirit to our duplicate game that will never be forgotten by the club. Then my husband, Wayne, played dominoes with E J and told me what a great guy he was at the table. I know that the family will miss him but know he is starting a game in heaven!

Some of my most beloved memories are growing up with my cousins in rural Canton & Glasford, Illinois. We had such a great time together, just enjoying being kids.....playing ping pong in his parents basement, riding horses with no saddle, swimming, going to 4-H together, feeding pigs & baby calves by bucket, catching chickens, riding bikes on country roads, driving when we could barely see above the steering wheel, eating tons of spaghetti. Our parents traveled to the Lake of the Ozarks together, all of us staying in the same cabin. John taught me how to drive a tractor without running over the corn & showed me innovative ways he was going to fix his very 1st car that came with *buttons* on the dash which you had to mash to make it He was always such a tease - but had such a kind & gentle heart. John often came to see my mother (Aunt June) just to visit. You are now in God's precious care. My Heart & Prayers are with your family at this difficult time! You will be terribly missed!

Pam Price posted on 4/17/20
What can I say? I will miss my brother’s good natured teasing. I will think of him every time I hear an airplane fly over. I definitely will think of him while I’m out working in the landscaping and garden. I know he knew Jesus to be the Son of God our savior, and I know that gives us great comfort knowing we will see him again. I pray for all the friends that my brother knew. He was always happy to meet people. Thank you all for being a good friend to my brother.

I'm so sorry to hear of Ron's passing. We worked together for 18 of his 20 years at ESC 18. We shared many interesting conversations, from storing fresh eggs to constellations!

John and I were 'double' cousins, e.g. his Mom and my Mom were sisters and his Dad and my Dad were brothers. John and I also shared August birthdays - born just 6 days apart - and so we were in the same class. His locker was right next to mine in high school and he always joked that, since I kept him supplied with pencils and paper out of my locker, he was able to graduate from high school! John was a merciless teaser throughout our growing up years - but I could always count on him when I needed encouragement and a helping hand. He had a sense of adventure and courage to 'think out of the box' that I always admired......and envied. My sincerest sympathy to his family in this time of sorrow and loss.

Thinking of you today Joe. As this new part of your Journey goes forward, all I can say that seems to really make any sense is what we said every hour of class at PMC. "Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God!"

Anna: I always enjoyed our visits when you and John came by my office. You were more like family to me than a customer. I am not certain the number of years you and John were in my Agency but I think 25-30 years. Individuals like you and John made it difficult for me to retire. John was a wonderful person and I will most certainly miss him. I pray all the happy memories of John will be a blessing in the coming days. I was always a bit envious of that wonderful beard of his. He looked pretty good, huh? Regards, Dan Duckworth

Going to miss my brother. He had the craziest ideas sometimes, restore a salvaged BSA motorcycle, windmills, build a computer cart for a factory, build an airplane, learn to fly when everybody said he couldn't, learn a new profession in GPS when he was well past the age when most people have given up educating themselves. But he was not afraid to try to learn something new. I have been getting calls from people he worked with and was friends with and that says a lot.

Jerry called last May to report the negative results of his recent tests. The diagnosis was grim, but he said, "I'll be ok." We talked for awhile and then he reminded me of a boxing match we had had in school when we were around 14 years old. We agreed we wouldn't hurt one another. During the bout he kept swinging away at me as I had my gloves up protecting my head. I finally hauled off and bopped him one. "Why did you do that?" he yelled. "Because you kept hitting me!" I replied. We talked some more and returned to the subject of his diagnosis. "I'll be ok!" he said. I was blessed to talk with him a couple of days before he died. He said, "I'll be ok." I'm confident he is ok! Thanks be to God!

Memories of a kind and gentle man. He was easy to like and love. We first met only a decade ago. It could have been so much more. Others are more fortunate; they are blessed to have known him many years. Jerry knew where he was bound. He is no longer in pain. I focus on that. Rest in peace dear friend.

Jerry was a great mentor and friend! The very best golf swing of all those I had the privilege to ever play with. His quite demeanor and humbleness was two of his best attributes I admired... he would beat you and just smile. I will miss him until getting to see him again in our Father’s Heavenly Kingdom.

Bob was an extraordinary Christian who will be missed by all who knew him. He was one of the most honorable men I've ever had the pleasure of knowing, and his wry sense of humor made him so much fun to be around. I am so thankful my boys had the blessings of being his grandsons, and he taught them many valuable lessons through the years. He lived his beliefs, even when it wasn't easy, and his Christianity was the basis of his every action. You will be missed here Bob, but we all know you are in a better place. You will remain in our hearts forever.

I am sorry to hear of the passing of Jerry, he was a golfing friend of mine for many years. even though I had not spoken with Jerry for many years he will always be a part of my life. Jerry and Buddy Sledge started the Brazos Valley Golf league for juniors in Bryan- College Station in the 70's. it was a league where it gave juniors of all ages an opportunity to compete in a age level and play around the local clubs in the Brazos Valley. I will say that I played in the league for several years before going on to play in college and eventually the tour. it was a incredible opportunity to play and compete at an early age. I also remember as I got older competing against Jerry in the Brazos Valley championship several times. He always had such a smooth swing and was always there with a smile to encourage you when things were not going well. He will be sorely missed and the golfing community lost a good player but more importantly a good friend. Jerry keep that smooth swing and hope you make every putt. your friend David

Thanks for a lifetime of memories! From being "our veteran" for the Rusk programs- which made our kids grow up so patriotic, to being the constant neighborhood watch...on duty on the porch. The one to leave the house keys with when gone traveling- knowing any plumbing leaks or shenanigans would be caught. Not from the "everyone gets a trophy" generation! If our kids were hired to mow- it better be right! Teaching them good work ethics. Always ready to shoot the breeze about the "Oil Bizness", or show up at the door with a poinsettia or Easter Lily. Hanging out at the library , or getting a great deal on ink pens at Estate Sales. Under that gruff exterior was a heart of gold- completely devoted to his family. Fussed -but missed them desperately when home alone. Donna was always his sweetheart. He was so proud of Chelle- overcoming her challenges to accomplish so much! And, though he & Mike had rough patches, he was always his son. As our own boys progressed along each stage of life- Harold always had a "Mike memory" or story to tell. Rest in peace old friend, and we look forward to seeing you again!

Donna, Mike Chelle, Sorry to hear of the death of Harold. I was sitting in a turkey blind Saturday and read the news in the FMP bulletin. This might be weird but I thought of the time all of y'all came over to the house on Princeton and we were throwing Chelles flip flops in the pool and she got mad,she put them in the car and locked the doors with the keys still in the car. Harold came un-glued and I remember him saying " We could go into a den of iniquity and never think about locking a door, we come to a friends house and you lock the keys in the car. Just thought that was funny.

I remember the first time I saw Jimmy. Daddy came to school and picked us 6 kids to go see mother and our new little brother. I'm the oldest and was a senior in high school. When we went into mother's room our new little brother was laying beside her. Mother said what should we name him. When I said Jimmy he turned his head and looked at me. Mother said I think he likes that. I loved my little brother and will miss him.

It was my pleasure to work with LaDoyce at West Texas State Bank from 2000 to 2012. Those were good years for the bank. LaDoyce surely deserves some of the credit for that. Even though we did not work together often, his kindness and intelligence were obvious. The more I learned about him and his community activities, the more impressed I became. I only learned about his newspaper career from his obituary, but it helps to explain why he was so helpful when I needed to write a notice to employees or customers. I'm sure he could have improved this condolence message! Oh well, it shows that I miss him too. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

Gabriel is my best friend. I spent countless hours at the Davila house and she always treated me like a son. Her cooking was amazing ! And her sense of humor was even better! She’d make fun of our dates or lack of dates haha. She’d always tell me that my eyes were getting darker and that one day I’d turn into a Mexican. She was great....a truly great human being.

1 To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die…Ecclesiastics 3:1-2 Many years ago, my mother called to say my nephew Gilbert Davila Jr. was marrying a school teacher. At one point, they were building their own home. The school teacher was hammering nails on the rooftop. I could see that my mother was impressed. Later, on several of my trips from California to Texas, I got to meet this awesome woman. She struggled with health problems but even in blindness she managed her home, cooked, cleaned and always looked beautiful and raised two wonderful children. I had the privilege of staying in her home numerous times and each time we enjoyed cooking, sharing stories and tracing her family history online. I know Estelita has returned to her Heavenly Father and there she will reunite with her family. While her body lies in this chapel, her spirit lives on. She will be in my heart forever, until we meet again… Biggest regret of my life is not being able to be in Texas during this coronavirus epidemic, I am under quarantine in California. But know that you are in my mind and in my heart and I cherish each and every family member and friend that I have in West Texas. Alicia (Davila) De Laurie

Gay/Russell, I am so sorry for your loss. Andy and I were so pleased to see you when we would happen to cross paths every few years. George had a huge impact on my career. After I graduated from the Chemical Engineering program at Tech in December 1982, the job I was promised by Phillips was rescinded due to the Oil Industry Crash. I knew Russell and he introduced me to his dad. George worked hard to get me an interview at Arco. Finally, a full year after graduation, I was hired and I went on to work at Arco for 10 years. His kindness and willingness to be a mentor has meant so much to me. May he Rest in His Peace. Blessings to the family. Russell, when this COVID-19 passes and we can get together, please give us a call. 432-703-3111/ 432-638-2685. We will be looking for an update for his memorial service.

In 1992 there was an angel born, she was such a beautiful baby, she had me wrapped around her pinky. Something so small and fragile could bring a man my size to his knees. From her smile the way she acted the little things she did.As Ashley grew and became older she kept me wrapped around her pinky she was my angel. As she grew older and became an adult I began to notice she was more than my angel she was an angel to every person she met. She had a smile that could light up and room. Ashley was such a beautiful person, but what was amazing was the beauty that came from inside her. Ashley locks you will be missed but NEVER forgotten. I love you baby girl and I know you smile will continue to shine.

There she was. This adorable little blonde haired, blue-eyed girl stood outside my classroom door. "Can I help you?" I asked. She told me she was waiting for her big brother, David Dean, who was in my class. That was the day I met Ashley. Little did I know that I would love watching this child grow up, along with her brothers. I was not just a teacher at Jones Elementary, I was Cary's mom. Cary, who remained friends with Ashley, past elementary, Junior High, High School, College...and even though I haven't seen her in a few years she and her family would cross my mind from time to time. I saw a post on FB grieving. I read it three times and I wailed. I do not know where her life had led. Words can never express my sorrow for her family. I love you all...I never stopped loving you all. I will always remember her joy and her smile, that lit you up like sunshine when you saw it. My love and prayers are with you.

You were your own person and kept those you loved and trusted close to you. We knew you from a distance but knew your heart was true to yourself and the organizations that meant so much to you. You cared about the creatures that did not have a voice, especially one raptor that was just learning to fly. Thank you for calling on us to help. That one time.

Charlesane and all your family, I am so sorry for your loss. I so loved that I got to see Shirley now and then at Hobby Lobby. We had such good times in Greenwood. Shirley loved all of her family and was proud of all of them. Praying for you at this sad time.

Mrs. Byrom was the mother of my longtime friend Clay Byrom, who died at age 50 in 2010. Even though I knew Clay for over 26 years, I had only met Mrs. Byrom - just one week before Clay died. She had so many tragedies in her life and suffered so much. It's so sad. The Bible says there will be 5 unique Heavenly Crowns, which Jesus will give out for what you did while on Earth. Surely Mrs. Byrom will receive the Heavenly Crown for Suffering, or for those who persevere under trials.

Claytie was a mentor for me going all the way back to when I was his student at Texas A&M. He probably gave me a C, but more important, when I needed him several years later as a mentor, he was on the phone immediately. Years later, I had the joy of teaching and mentoring his grandsons and hundreds of other students and former students as a professor at A&M. I would have chosen this rewarding path in life without Claytie encouraging me along the way and ALWAYS being only a phone call away. I can only hope I benefit others a fraction as well as he did for me. Always in my heart! Detlef

Sally, I miss you so much. My heart goes out to Steve. He had the best partner in life. Also my heart breaks for George, Scott and Mike, their wives and all those precious Granddaughters. It was a pleasure growing up with Sally in Midland. When we were small kids our beloved mothers would share that horrible hair perm solutions on us. Sally could tolerate it so much better than my hair. Sally and I had many laughs — in our adult lives — about my frizzy hair. God Bless family and friends. RIP Sally Ann. My heart hurts.

I was fortunate to spend 6 weeks each summer in the Midkiff Camp from about age 5 to mid teen years. Sandy was my nephew (I was just 2 years older than him) so we were big buddies. We explored, rode bikes, played baseball and volleyball until Wayne and Fay said time for bed. One nite we “camped out” in their station wagon waking up throwing up from gas fumes. Didn’t stop us we were back to being outside all day and into nightfall. Sandy was a “Tuffy”. Always keeping tabs on me and any boy that ask me out for a date. I love you, my friend and will see you again. God’s Bessings surrounded him the day he married Sheryl. He beamed with pride and joy for his wonderful family. My prayer for you is a hedge of Comfort and Peace until you see Pop again.

I met Margie many years ago when teaching at Henderson Elementary. She was so helpful to me and my students with learning disabilities She was the first person that made me aware of dyslexia, and I eventually became a Certified Language Therapist and taught the dyslexia program for MISD for many years. She was a Master Instructor of the program at the Scottish Rites training program in Lubbock. I learned so much under her helpful instruction She was an inspiration to all teachers and shared her knowledge freely. She never stopped learning. After retiring, she helped many students and adults at her home. I will never forget the impact Margie had on my teaching. Rest well, my friend, although I know you are still sharing with the angels!

I cannot believe Joe’s passing. I just learned this evening of his passing (Thursday Evening). I would usually see him at Stripe’s on Briarwood on Monday or Wednesday mornings. That’s where I first met him. He was a very nice man. The last time I saw him was about 2 weeks ago. We would talk for about 10-15 minutes and then we would go on our own paths. I will miss seeing him getting his breakfast burritos at Stripes. So Long Joe. Already missing you. A Friend from this past year. Rest in Peace. To the Carrasco Family, my deepest sympathy and prayers & blessing to you and your loved ones. -Elias Hernandez

Shack was the most kind hearted man who could be a force of nature when needed. He lived his life with dignity and integrity, and the charm and manners of a true southern gentleman. That Shack temper made appearances now and then, but it simply added to his charm. He loved reading and you were always welcome to join him if you brought your own book and didn’t talk! He shared his strength with us when ours failed, gently bringing us back to the light. For those of us who knew him well, laughter, drinking and the great outdoors was our solace. The tears we cry are for ourselves because Shack is free of physical pain and looking out for us from above. He will always be in our hearts.

Margie stepped into our lives when our son was seven. The summer between first and second grade she began a journey with Kyle and later with our daughter Tamara. The first thing Margie noticed was Kyle could not stand chalk or chalk boards and she went right out and bought a dry erase board. She worked with them to find a way that best suited their learning style. Anytime a child left her house they could have a piece of gum from her gumball machine. She gave our children tiny gumball machines as a Christmas decoration. She became part of our lives almost 30 years ago and is still a very fond memory in our lives. Our love and prayers to the family of this gracious lady. The Wilson’s

You are in the arms of Jesus and now with your daddy and daughter, Leslie.

Until we meet again sweet lady, I will remember you as being special.

My dad, (JD Yardley deceased), played with David Cook in a Bluegrass Band called the Permian Basin Pickers. We enjoyed many concerts and festivals with David, Gerry, and their son while he picked with them. One of my ‘67 classmates knew David as well when he was a game warden in Alpine, where my friend is/was a veterinarian. I’d say David was known far and wide in the state of Texas as a very good man.

Steve & I are so very sorry to hear the news. I'm in Israel so I am sending my heartfelt thoughts to your family. Sally was a caring, tender, fun, smart, humorous, beautiful, nice...I could go on forever. I loved playing golf, volunteering, and chatting with her. The angels have welcomed her with open arms.

Nephew Clay Pollard hit the nail on the head at his service. He was at home in board room or Dairy Queen. That's why everyone admired 'Claytie'. Real, genuine, and unpretentious.

Dear Melzer family, I am so very sorry for the earthly loss of your dear wife, Mom, and grandmother! She was an amazing woman, who always had a funny story to share. She was always smiling! I met Sally thru the Theta alum group and we had many special times making chicken crepes together, many times at her home. She was a great organizer and encourager! I always loved her stories about her Mom and Dad. She absolutely loved seeing her kids and grandkids, that was the highlight of her life!! She will surely be missed by many!! She was one in a million and I was so blessed to have known her!! May the Lord bless and keep you all and grant you peace and comfort in the weeks ahead.

I am so sorry to hear about Jackie: he is going to be missed by everyone who knew him. I have never known a better person than Jackie and was lucky enough to be related to him and able to spend time with him when I was in High School. The times he spent with our family were full of laughter. I am so sorry I have not had the opportunity to meet his sons. What a great father they had. Bonnie Simpson Carter

To the Melzer family, my heart aches with you during this trying time..Sally was a wonderful woman who’s touch on this world will be felt for a long time..while my interactions with her were limited to her visits to Houston I always loved the time I was able to spend with her and talk with her..she was so patient, curious about the world, so kind and above all else filled with such inner peace that it was just a delight to be in her presence. She was always sweet to my boys, Mikes nephews, and took time to get to know them. I will keep and treasure those memories always. God bless.

My most precious we will miss him. He was one-of-a-kind with a love for life and every person he met. He left laughter and joy in his wake wherever he went. He was an inspiration and I am so very blessed to be his niece. He lives on in his two wonderful sons that I love so very much. Rest easy, my Uncle Tomater Vine. I will see you again one day and what a day that will be!

I have very fond memories of Mrs. Melzer...after all I did grow up in her house. Cinnamon rolls every Saturday morning that I was there (I will presume that was only on my account). Also learned the miracle of whole milk since my mother only permitted skim milk in our house. The best wiffle ball team mom you could ask for. Always inviting and accommodating. All those days, months, years spent at her house...she wouldn't have had it any other way. Thank you for those memories! Rest in peace. Dennis Ehler

Sally was the BEST neighbor! She never missed an opportunity to stop and say hello if she was driving by, or walking by, and happened to catch us out in our front yard. She had the BEST attitude and was so funny. I enjoyed asking her about her family. She loved to talk about the fun adventures they were going on or the next trip she and Steve were taking. She was beautiful inside and out. We absolutely loved her and will miss her terribly.

I was just home to see my family for Christmas and Sally walked right out of Albertson’s and right past me & mom....I turned and said “Sally?” The that was it ....she hugged me and mom and it was like we never left midland. It was so nice growing up with Scott & Mikey , I always knew if I had trouble I could ride my bike to her house and Sally would call my mom......lots and lots of childhood memories of Sally with both our families and with her in my moms shop getting her hair done. She will be GREATLY missed and I’m so very sad to hear of this news. Scott & Mikey & will be in our prayers and thoughts and again I’m so very sorry.....

Claytie asked me one afternoon, “What can I do to stop this!?” It was the quite illegitimate deregulation of ATT when they controlled the lines and equipment. The idea was of course to put ClayDesta and MCI and others out of business overnight. I said, “Ride your horse to the Capitol like you do in your commercial.” I arranged all the permits and there he was first thing in the morning with two of his cowboys who drove all night from Midland. They rode up to the steps of the Capitol with their ClayDesta flags and he held a passion filled press conference. We won by one vote, in the biggest deregulation fight in TX history. He loved that! He later tried to get me to run his campaign for Gov against my boss which I couldn’t do. He was so so full of life and open to ideas. He will remain in the hearts of so many as a true inspiration and an example of what can be. They really don’t make ‘em like that any more.

He taught me about the irrigation systems for cotton fields and crops. To this day, as I drive across West Texas, New Mexico, or Oklahoma and see irrigation systems, I think of him with fond memories. Denvil also knew how to grow cantaloupe and watermelon. Wish I had one more of his home grown cantaloupes! Thank you, Denvil for always treating me as one of your own. Praying peace and comfort for the Whisenhunt family. Sorry for your loss.

Dear Modesta, Helen and I want to thank you for inviting us to many events and sharing your lives with us. We were always the first to jitterbug with you and Claytie at all your Aggie Christmas Parties. It was a short drive from Lafayette to Houston for your parties. They were the most fun parties of my entire career. Upside down Xmas Trees and tacky decorations. Now we can have fond thoughts of him at Christmas, April 1, and February 14th. He is the last of the great Oilmen. It was a great pleasure working for him, talking with him and sharing a small part of his life. You're forever in our prayers. He had a way to make the world bigger with his heart and smaller with his kind words....He once cornered me and accused me of being an optimist. I had to admit to him I was a "huge optimist". He comforted me with the words "so am am I" So I pray that you carry his optimism to the end of the road with many kind words to ease your tears which we share....He brightened many peoples lives with his spirit....and enthusiasm...and we share in your great loss. Peace be with you and your family in these dark times. "Bosco" Brent and Helen in Lafayette, Louisiana.

I was fortunate enough to have seen "Claytie" sing with Mariachi bands at the Pecos Country Club, and also at his Alpine Ranch. He not only sung in perfect, fluent Spanish (of course); he even told the band what key to play in. Then he would translate the meaning of the ballad to the crowd watching. It was great to see him absorbed in his west Texas culture, and fun to watch, and be a part of. Will never forget those images. Vaya con Dios, Senor Williams...

Steve and I went to high school together. We were pretty close friends who sadly grew apart. I just found out what happened as I was thinking of him and decided to look him up. I am saddened that he is not with us anymore. Steve was a great guy, he was always quiet in school but had a great sense of humor. He ended up being the only guy in our graduating class at macs but somehow I don't think he really minded it. I am so sorry he is gone. He will always be with me in my thoughts and I'll be praying for his family. I know hes now in a better place.

I was lucky to score an invite to one of the picnics held at the Williams' ranch back in '83 or '84. As we drove onto the property there were drink stands set up - you could get a cocktail, beer, wine - whatever as you continued the drive to the house. It was hotter than all get out and I remember crowding around the edge of the auction tent to get a little relief from the afternoon sun. Also remember the boot shaped swimming pool. Delicious bbq with a young George Straight & Janie Fricke for the evening entertainment. I recall seeing Clayton dancing on the tennis court looking like he was having one heck of a good time. And a fireworks show at the end (after we got back to the hotel I had black dots all over my face). A memory I'll always cherish.

The entire Williams family will be in our prayers. Clayton was a very kind, generous, and joyful man. I am grateful that I got to know him as a friend of his son Jeff. He was encouraging to all of Jeff's friends cheering us on at many football and basketball games. The impact of Clayton's life has been felt by so many. I remember years after I had left Midland I went to a jeweler to buy my wife's engagement ring. When the jewelry store owner learned I was from Midland he asked me if I knew Clayton Williams. I shared that I did, and he told me that he was one of his students at the Business School at Texas A&M. He said, "Clayton was my favorite teacher." Clayton taught a lot of people a lot of great things. What a wonderful legacy of a life well lived. He will be missed by many, but I'm grateful that I know where he is. He is now with Jesus in Paradise (Luke 23:43) in our Heavenly Father's House where there are many rooms (John 14:1-6) where there is no more pain, suffering, only praise (Revelation 21). Till we meet again. God bless.

Claytie took a chance on a young, (30 year old Aggie) engineer to run his drilling operations in 1984. Four months later he saw the downturn coming and laid down all 52 of his drilling rigs in just a few months. This began a wild 12 year ride of ups and downs, that I will never forget. He would get mad, but you would never hear about it a second time. He taught me so much about business and his entrepreneurial spirit as I moved up to the inner circle of management. Thousands of employees have loved him and found him to be very funny and a good family man. He provided pivotal jobs to so many people over the years that went on to great success. Too many funny stories to tell about this legend. The Oilfield has lost a great man, philanthropic to so many, and there is a large place in the Oilfield history books for him. God blessed you Claytie. And he blessed us with your presence. I know he was there with open arms for you. We will miss you.

I think Clayton Williams was one of the nicest men I ever met. I used to work in Midland for KMiD and News West 9. Whenever there was a big story about the oil business, he was the first person I would call. He would always be happy to do an interview. He was a great man to speak with and I always enjoyed talking with him. I wished I had kept in contact with him because he was not only smart and well spoken, he was nice as well.

My best memory of Claytie is when the Texas Tech Health Sciences opened our Permian Basin campus in the mid 80s. I was assistant vice president for operations and responsible for holding monthly meetings with all our satelite campuses, which was a challenge because of the distances (El Paso, Amarillo, Odessa.) Claytie had his communications business up and running and let us use his lines to tele-transmit my meetings, which was an innovation at that time and we greatly appreciated his willingness to help the Health Sciences Center grow and provide health care for all of West Texas.

The first time I met Tom was in second grade the year 2000s. I will not forget this event because Tom made an impression on me; he showed kindness by inviting my family over for dinner and taught us manners. The feeling of enjoyment comes to my mind. Tom was a great friend and I enjoyed and loved his company and the knowledge that he gave so freely to people. Tom truly had a giving heart and a deep laughter. Friends, family, and even I let’s not let our hearts take to lamenting in too much grief because Tom has passed on earth. Tom lives within us and we keep him alive. What I mean by this is; Tom lives in our hearts, in our minds, and in our memories that we will carry with us throughout our lives. Family of Tom my heart goes out to you all. Tom truly was a wonderful man and he will be missed.

There are such good memories, and so many. In November, 1976, I sat down with Claytie in his office in the Old Gulf Bldg. in Midland. I had recently completed my Masters Degree, but was unsure of what direction I was going to take in life. That day, I was introduced by cousin Claytie, to the possibility of pursuing a career as a Landman in the Oil Business. This was the turning point in my life, and the beginning of a 40 year career. I believe in life, everyone needs a mentor. Claytie was, and always has been, my greatest mentor. I owe my wonderful wife Jill, my two daughters, Kara and Krista, my grand children, the many friends I have made over the years, and experiences and opportunites, to that day in 1976, when I visited Claytie in Midland.

Mike was one of my most colorful cousins. Never a dull moment when Mike was around. Yet Mike had one of the strongest witness for Christ in his testimony now left for posterity. We will miss you Mike, glad you aren’t suffering and have went home to be with your Lord and Savior Jesus. See you in a little while.

There so many memories but what is most interesting is that they are every day ordinary ones that are built up over time, that make him who is. I say “is” because life doesn’t end after death. We are just absent from our bodies but our souls live in fullness within one of those two eternal places the Bible speaks about. But here on earth Tom was honestly the first true friend that I made in adulthood. I’m only lucky that I happened to bump into him! His support and love was unceasing. He was a friend to me as a young mother who was alone, a confidant and an encourager. He is an awesome person. His smile says it all about him. And I wish I could hear that deep chuckle. Since he has left this earth that we all stand upon, I think of him more. He always tried to fix things that were broken in people and our hearts feel broken that he’s gone from us so soon. Thank you.

I am so sad and so sorry that my beautiful cousin, Holly, has passed away. I loved her, though it has been so many years (54years +?) since I had seen her or spoken with her. My memories of her, and her uncle James, & her mother, Phyllis, and all of the family, are wonderful and happy. I still remember their home in Tijeras, NM. Their family was so beautiful and happy. With all my love, beautiful thoughts, prayers and best wishes, Paulette Miller Weir

For as long as I can remember, Josh encouraged those around him to be the most true versions of themselves and to take joy in everything life has to offer, no matter how small or fleeting. From his first time snowboarding almost twenty years ago to the hikes we've done together the last few years, spending time together in the great outdoors was something that we both enjoyed greatly. Josh had an adventurous spirit and consequently, he often encouraged me to seek out enriching experiences, go outside of my comfort zone, and never be afraid to discover new parts of myself. While the positive effect he has had on my own life as well as the rest of our family is clearly visible, the influence he has had on others through his music and creative expression is immeasurable. I will always remember the times we shared together and I will never stop loving him.

Josh has been such a special part of our lives for 20 years. He visited us in Colorado several times, including when he tried out snowboarding at our local ski area and for a music concert where he played guitar for us. He also spent time with us while he lived here, enriching our Thanksgiving of 2017 with the gift of his music and company, excitedly introducing us to friends and coworkers and sharing his barista skills, his favorite brunch spot with his favorite blueberry cornbread, and his love for the Colorado Mountains where he camped with us and shared a beautiful sunset at the top of Rocky Mountain National Park. We feel honored to have celebrated his life together by spending his last 2 birthdays together with him. He will be missed terribly -- the light in his soul and the joy of his memory will live on forever in our hearts.

We only learned today that Coach had vacated his earthly body and went to be with Jesus. Last time I saw Coach Curtner, he was on a bowling league with my Grandmother in Roswell. I was there recovering from a nasty accident I was in that left me in sad shape. I was fresh from the hospital and in extensive rehab both mentally and physically. I have VERY few memories from that time...but seeing coach at that bowling ally was one that I am forever grateful to have. He did not recognize me. I was in pretty sad shape. But as soon as I told him (with the help of my Grandmother) what had happened and what I was trying to recover from, he remembered me. He did what Coach did best, he started building me up and assuring me that If I put the work in, and never give up, I would beat this. My true healing began at that exact moment...and guess what?? He was RIGHT!! I wish he knew what I was to become, and that the ten minutes with spent with me was to be, what I will ALWAYS believe, the inspiration to overcome what appeared to be an unrepairable brain injury. I am the President of an FAA Aeronautical Repair Station as well as the Director of Maintenance for a part 135 Jet Charter service. THANK YOU, COACH! I am absolutely positive we will meet again..and I am equally sure you will make me give you some pushups and laps. Mrs. Curtner, Teri and Carla, our sincerest condolences from Teah Hamill and we pray for healing. Randall A. (Randy) and Pat (Leitch) Hamill

I remember watching him play in Kansas City, and he was my favorite. I idolized him, and actually met him and got an autographed picture. Later on I had read stories about how ornery and playful EJ was, and while playing Pop Warner football I decided to do what I had read that my hero had done many years ago. So while in a dog pile, I pinched the kid I tackled on the rump. Hard. That kid moved the whole pile of us. I never knew Mr. Holub, but I loved him, and he made quite the impression on me, and for that, I am thankful.

It is helpful that you mentioned that you need to check the payment options that a funeral home offers before you hire them. I hadn't thought about that before, but it is going to be important because we can only pay with our card. My wife's mom passed away this morning, and I want to help alleviate their stress by referring them to a good funeral home. When I look for one, I will be sure to choose one that will offer a payment method that will work for them.

One of my fondest memories of my Aunt Mildred was her great cooking. Best of all, it didn't matter what time during a family get together before lunch or dinner, she always had something good (candy, dessert) that you could get into before the meal. Maybe she was just spoiling us, or she knew we were sneaking the goodies and didn't mind. Seems life gets so busy for all of us, but the good memories are such a comfort. Gonna miss you Aunt Mildred. Until we meet again in the heavenly home.

The love you carried touched every heart you ever knew, your Graceful ways could fill any void. Blessed you are called among women, full of mercy, strength and honor. You touched my heart and life with your kindness and love, you were an oasis in the desert to all who knew you, especially to your family. A strong water you were for all who came near to you, you quenched their thirst with loving-kindness. You exhibited strength and grace with gentleness in all your ways. Your beautiful Essence lives on to tell the story in each one of your children, grand-children and great-grandchildren and in each one of us that was privileged to know you and that you brought into your heart and home. It has been an honor to be at your side and be able to share these days and weeks with you. To Our Family "The Nichols" for sharing YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSION with us. We Love You All with all of our heart. Marcy and Joe

Derek, you left two significant impressions on me. You loved big and with all your heart. Anyone who was the recipient of your love was a lucky person. You made even the most mundane things fun and made everyone around you laugh. You could always brighten my day with your Derek-isms. All these years later, I still quote you! Your memory will always bring a smile to my face, brighten my day, and remind me to love with my whole heart. To all your loved ones, I offer my love and condolences. You will be missed.

Lucille and I were best friends from the time she moved to Knott community when she was a seventh grader, loved spending the night with her and sleeping in a feather bed! She loved music and couldn't understand me not hearing music. She asked me " are you crazy"? I just chuckled and said " I can do lots of other things". She and Tink married when I was gone to Ohio to visit family the summer of 1950. I was devastated, but went on without her to graduate in 1951, We didn't reconnect until Tink passed away and I was a widow as well. I loved visiting Lucille and she always made me feel so welcome. We became best friends again sharing our memories, I will miss her but she was ready to go, she wanted to stay at home and I am grateful that was where she was! God bless her family, she loved you all so much! Always Nila to Lucille!

Derek, my friend for many years...I am sure I'll never meet anyone quite like him again. Too many memories to share here...if there's one big thing we had in common, we loved to make sure our friends were entertained. Rest in peace, my friend. The lives you touched are as immeasurable as the way you touched everyone around you.

Debbie Gregory posted on 1/16/20
I am deeply saddened to hear this. She was always smiling and was a devoted wife and mother. You couldn’t help but love her and Tink. I remember us both expecting babies in the same year, my first and her last. She was always helping me to understand what my body was going through. If it had not been for her kindness I know I would have been so scared. At 17 years old I thought was as confident to have my baby all from the kindness she showed. Now I have to be honest when I saw Chad for the first time and his head and feet touched both ends of his little bed at the hospital. I was 17, 5’3”, and about 140 lbs I remember getting a little scared. I was real sure where God could find room. Lol I’m so glad I had her in my life. Your entire family has always been wonderful and for that I thank you all.

Our lives were beyond blessed by your friendship, movie quotes, baseball games, Aggies, dominoes, your singing voice and an immeasurable amount of laughter and above all, we were blessed by YOU! You became a part of our family quickly and we loved you more than you knew. Carrie was blessed to be loved by you and we will continue to love her hard and comfort her in her time of grief. You loved our kids like your own and were one of Dyllan’s biggest fans. He will cheer a little louder for those Aggies for you! You will have the best seat in the house to watch Aggie baseball no matter what channel it is on. We love you Derek W. Griffith and will miss you so much! Whoop!

You know, some people go through their lives and don't leave much of an impact. Derek left a crater. I will look for the brightest star in the sky tonight and I know it will be him.

She was very dedicated to her students and always went above and beyond to help them. She loved her puppies and watching the "Young and the Restless". I will miss visiting with her. She blessed my life and I am thankful to have known her. Rest in Peace My Friend.

Derek, you were truly one of a kind. After spending yesterday dealing with the shock of your passing I realized almost every memory I have of you I associate with laughter. That’s a pretty cool legacy to leave us with. You loved your friends and there was no one better at reaching out and keeping in touch with everyone. I’m heartbroken that I will never hear another “HUH” from you. Your Derek-isms are already well established at the Dennis house. You’re the first person I think of when I see a Rangers or A&M game on tv..I love you brother. Godspeed. Rob Dennis Nashille TN

Thinking of all the family and friends during this difficult time. After hearing the shocking news, it’s been hard to focus on anything except the past. I have so many great memories of Derek. He was a connector and did such a great job at letting us know what was going on with everyone else especially when somebody was going through a difficult time in their life. He did this to ensure that we prayed for whomever that friend was. I’m certainly going to miss Derek, but I know he’s getting to see so many of our friends and family in heaven that have gone before us. I thank God for the friendship and the fun we had in high school and beyond. I’ll never forget those times. Love you, man! - Kram Rebrab (Mark Barber)

Brady was wanting to go be with his beloved Jewel. He loved her with all his heart as well as his family. He will be missed . I had many visits with him and I loved him. He was a mess. We visited for a few years on the phone and when he was in the nursing home here before his death. He would call me at 3 or 4 am wanting to visit. I’d tell him, Brady, I’m going to kill you for calling me in the middle of the night ! He would say “ You love me anyway “. God comfort all your hearts and think on all the great times you had with him . By the way, I love all of you and you are in my prayers. Marcia

Please accept my sincere condolences for you and the family. Juan was a remarkable man and everyone at Targa Resources is better for having known and worked with him. For those of us that had the privilege of calling him "friend" outside of work, we were humbled by his kindness and compassion to everyone around him.

Mark Evans was the backbone of Troop #18 in Odessa, Tx. Mark was always ready and prepared for camping in Buffalo Trails Scout ranch, Sol Myer and many more. It takes a special person to give their time and energy to young boys. He was a model for the scouts on how a man should act even during difficult times camping out. I know my husband and I will miss Mark but will have wonderful memories of the camp outs and scouts meetings we attended together! Love, The Kalenaks

I met Ms. Marie in late 90's. I am from Big Spring and she would do my hair. I actually had an appointment for Dec 13, that I had to cancel. I'm sorry that I did not get to speak with her one final time. Coming to her shop was always refreshing. The ambience of her shop was serene with gospel music playing softly often. I never met her boys, but I knew she loved them and her grandchildren as she spoke about them all of the time. She had a passion for fostering kids in the system. I would always jokingly tell her that God has an extra crown for her. LOL Marie was a woman of God and although beauty shops tend to be full of gossip, not her. I NEVER heard her say one negative word about anyone. To her family, I pray that God will dispatch angels of comfort for you all. I lost my mother in 2007, and I know first hand a mother is a precious gem that is not easily replaced, not even through time. Prayers for you all. RIP Ms. Marie

I met H. T. in 1984 when Larry & I moved in next door to he and Benita. He was always kind and, just the way that he talked about life would make you laugh and want to hear more. We learned what it meant to be good neighbors from H. T. and Benita. I don’t know if he ever knew just how much that meant to us. We were very young and his love for his family, and others spoke volumes of the man. He was one of those folks who left a lasting print on your heart. My heart is grateful to have known Mr. H.T. Baker! Our heartfelt condolences to Benita and the family. With much love!

Tommy was a concerned Father of three sons who he encouraged to complete their educations, which they all accomplished very well. He also enjoyed sports and had his favorite teams which he followed. He raised his family in the Church and was an active member, serving as a Deacon at the 14th and Main Church of Christ in Big Spring, Texas. Occasionally, he could pull a prank to the wonderment and amusement of those around. He was also an avid Bridge player with a considerable accumulation of Master Points.

Pete and my Daddy, Harmon Burl Mills, we’re first double cousins. Pete’s dad Rufus Roy and my Grandad, Ruben Toy we’re twins. They married sisters Jewel and Lola Smith. Pete, his son Mike, and my dad always looked quit a bit alike. When I was 5 we moved to town & dad built a house across the street from Pete. Later, my grandparents built a house two doors down from Pete and since each house was on a corner lot, it was known as Mills Corner. Many years later, my husband & I bought Pete’s house and lived there for several years. My brother & I still own our parents house on Mills Corner.

Mark, Where to begin. You were such a hard working and loving person. I loved working with you at Fire Tech. Going from work site to work site. You getting mad at me for changing your radio to oldies when you’d always listen to fox radio. You’d be happy to know I finally came to my senses politically. I’ll miss the times we’d be listening and you go on about how “my president” was doing this or that. I loved helping you with Troop 18 and being your assistant. You showed me how to be a hard worker and you’ll never be forgotten. -Hunter

My firecracker Aunt Cynthia lived a long and a wonderful life. I have many memories of her scaring me with her one constant threat when she thought we little kids were misbehaving, "I'll knock the hell fire out of you". Later in my life i believe she truly loved me. My memories of her will always be remembered.. She will be missed forever. I was present when my Uncle Bobby died and also with all the girls when Aunt Cynthia passed. Coincidentally or planned. I guess ill never know. I would like to believe that it was meant to be, for whatever the reason. I love my cousins dearly. They took care of Aunt Cynthia until the very end. Also Jerry Nichols, I will always be so grateful for your care and fulfilling Aunt Cynthia's wisheses. You're a great man. Love to my family of cousins. I am so proud of them.

I showed her pics of my granddaughter who is 16 now and was n the 4th grade when she n her family moved to DFW. I have since moved to DFW as well. We had an awesome visit, laughing n talking about how much my granddaughter had grown n how good we both looked. I was truly moved to hear of her passing.

Marie has done me and my twin sister's hair for the a number of years. Marie was more than my hair dresser; she was my friend and prayer partner. Marie was in love with her child and grandchildren and spoke about her mom and brother on a regular basis. Her love extended not only to her family but to her foster children. I will always remember her smile and listening ear. To the family, be confident that Marie is already in the presence of the Lord, whole and full of life. I will miss my sister, my friend! To her family both physical and church family, my heart is tender towards you and declare that in time, God will heal your hearts! God does not kill, steal and destroy, but Satan does. What the enemy, Satan, meant for bad, God will use it for good.

I never new Robert but after reading all that was said he truly did seem like an amazing person overall. As a mother my heartaches for Robert’s mother and family. May God be with you all in this difficult time. In hard times like these it’s always best to mesmerize on the good times. Praying for the family.

I met Marie in 80's when she first moved to Midland. She became my hair stylist while working in a small salon on South Main St. I followed her to a new salon where she later purchased currently known as New Image. I would take pictures of styles I'd found & Marie worked her magic and my hair looked exactly like it. Over the years we shared meals and life events but mostly we just enjoyed each others company. She was a true friend & confident, always available personally & professionally. We had lost touch these last few years but she always ask my Sister whose hair she did how I was doing. My prayers & condolences are extended to hers son's & other family members. My friend Marie has gained her wings & Heaven has gained a beautiful soul. Rest easy in Paradise my friend.

I appreciate the idea that a funeral isn't for the deceased, but for their loved ones that are mourning. My father passed away over the weekend so my siblings and I need to figure out what to do. Planning a funeral would probably be healthy and useful for us all to have some closure.

Tyson Coolidge posted on 1/6/20
It's good to know that you can still have a traditional funeral if you choose cremation. My brother has been telling me about how his mother-in-law passed away recently. I'll share this information with him so that he can look into his options for professionals who can help him with this in the future.

Forrest, Eldon was my cousin..his father and my grandfather (Bert) were brothers. So it seems me and you are also cousins. I enjoyed seeing Mary and Eldon when they came to Fort Worth to visit Eldon's Uncle Bert and Aunt Ruby--my grandparents. Eldon made the best peanut brittle I have ever tasted! Last time I saw your parents was at my grandmother's funeral in 1995. I was eating lunch yesterday with my mom, sister, nephew and Aunt Heili who was married to my Uncle Ralph who was Eldon's 1st cousin. You surely have met Heili as she would drive to Midland to visit your parents. Anyways Eldon's name came up and she admitted she hadn't spoken with Eldon in awhile. Later I googled and found his obit. Please accept my belated condolences for the loss of your father and mother. I met Melissa 1 time in early 80's when she was visiting my grandparents. Again, my condolences and maybe we will meet one day.

Will never forget the times when we were young and would play behind Granny Cobbs house. Of course we had ( my older brother, her very first cousin) to boss us around. Granny always had canning jars stored until she needed them. We decided we needed them to pay with. We took our jars to a safe place and started canning. We canned all kinds of grass and weeds. We would fill the jars up with grass and then pour water over them. It was a great time we had canning that summer long ago. That is my first memory of Charlotte and I cherish it. Other good times were had before we were separated when they moved to West Texas but will not tell about them now. I loved Charlotte and I hope her memory lives on.

Every time our paths crossed he never failed to ask me how I was doing, how my family was doing and how my Dad was. You didn't have to be around him long to realize that he was extremely intelligent, had a great head for business and could read people and see their potential even when others couldn't. He will always have my gratitude and respect. My family and I will keep his family in our prayers during this difficult time and may God Bless the Davis Family.

Matt and I have known each other a long time. We were seniors in high school together, I was on crutches with a broken leg and he used to take me to lunch. Later, when Clint and I had two little girls, Matt would treat us to the latest Disney movie as soon as it came out. He pulled me aside once and told me he knew the girls liked the shows, but he looked forward to them as much as they did! With Christmas Day approaching, I remember Matt's generosity. He always spent all he had on those he loved. When I think of Matt, it's hard to remember a time when he wasn't animated and smiling, full to the brim with the sheer joy of being alive. He's left a big hole in the hearts of everyone who loves him.

Matty - you will always be remembered for the joy you brought into my life! The music, the song lyrics, the original songs, the impersonations of people and accents - these are just a few! And the "logic" of Matt! One of my favorite memories was made when Matt told me he was failing his history course. Yet, he said that history was his most favorite subject - that he had read the text book thoroughly, knew everything in the book, and loved it! I pressed him and asked why would he be failing the class? He finally answered: "Well, it meets at 8 am."

I have known Gene 25 plus years. He was truly a picture of a servant. He lived to serve and love on people. He knew something about everything. He loved his Lord, family and friends in actions, not just in words. I had a disabled brother who had seizures and couldn’t get around to visit. So at family gatherings you would find Gene sitting in the living room talking to Steve, aggravating him about the Cowboys and making sure he was very much included. I was always grateful for that. Gene’s life of generosity, kindness and love will live on in the hearts of all that knew him.

Akinjobi, When I received the sad news of your demise, I felt very sad and could not really believe how could it suddenly happen like that because you actually came to my office in October 2014 and inform me of your decision to finally join your family, you even told me that your children have been pressing that you join them. You were very close to me right from Fidelity Bank. Makudi, on d last day you met me in my office, you even told me how much was paid to you as retirement benefits. How I wish I had convinced you to apply more patience and wait till 2015 before you move finally. May your soul rest in peace, I pray that God grant your wife, your children and d other siblings and family you left behind the fortitude to bear and forge ahead with life.

Gene was a beautiful example of recovery in Alanon. She was sitting, very calm and welcoming, in a meeting at 710 when I attended my first meeting in July 1986.

Ed Perhay on behalf of all Veterans posted on 12/11/19
On behalf of the military community I want to extend our sincere sorrow and sadness for our loss. Ralph exemplified what it truly meant to be a soldier and leader to our country. He always exhibited himself as a person who knew how to take charge, could get things done, and done right. And we found out later those skills extended to civilian life as well, when he took on the responsibility to coordinator unit reunions again and again. With his more than 2 decades of service to our nation and Mr. Kennedy's distinguished career in the military, took him to many parts of the world. Some of which being the most troubled, unstable and dangerous situations you could encounter. We owe a lot to this unselfish man of the military. Again, I respected him since the first day we met in the war 50 plus years ago. If I stayed in the service I would have loved to have worked with him. And i'm not alone is saying he influenced and was an inspiration to many others and mentoring many to remain in the military to walk in his footsteps, but they could never fill his shoes. I know every man who knew him and his zest for life, would have loved to be there in Midland,Texas to send their final farewell with a well deserved salute. You will never be forgotten and there will never be another warrior like Ralph. And Ralph, if you can hear us, let it be known, with the highest priority, we are all inundating you by sending flash messages of care and love, wherever in the heavens you may be. Our respect to the family. RIP my dear friend.

She would always make special cookies for my kids during Halloween time and each one had their OWN special cookie that they got to go and get for many years ! She LOVED her bird houses and her "Martins" that came to nest each year. She will always be someone special to me, personally, because of her son Ray Kennedy, who has not only been my boss for so long but also one of my very best friends I treasure along with Barbara and the rest of the family that I love as my own. Thank you Jean for leaving behind your legacy and love. Fly High now and you will never have to be in pain again. love, Jen

My heartfelt condolences to the Mohr Family. I’m deeply saddened by the loss of Jack. Jack was such a kind, gentle and friendly man. He was genuinely thoughtful and caring. Jack took an interest in me when I was a new member of the church and always made me feel at home. He was just an amazing person and always had a smile on his face. He set such a good example for me when we served together in the Sugar Land 2 Bishopric. It was only a few months before he moved to Midland, but he past on a tremendous amount of knowledge and I learned a great deal about serving the Lord and others just by watching him. Jack was always eager to help and willing to serve others. Years later, when I was called as a counselor, Jack was quick to give me advice and mentor me. I followed his example in so many ways. He will surely be missed. Wishing the Mohr Family peace, comfort and may God’s Love be upon you. With love, Michael Janak

I like how you pointed out some tips to celebrate a memorial service after cremation such as doing readings, playing music, and sharing photos and videos. My dad told me that he would like us to bring him live music and enjoy his favorite food. As hard as it could be to talk about that, I thank my father for letting us know that he would like to be cremated.

I can’t believe Zach is gone I remember when I first moved to Smyrna I didn’t have any friends and I would of been sitting alone Zach and his friend allowed me to sit with them and became my friends. Zach always had a way of making me smile and laugh even on my bad days. Rest In Pece Zach. See you someday in paradise.

Pat was a great man. Jonathan and his sister, whose name escapes me, hopefully have great memories of their father. I know I do. And to his wife, my best wishes and know the pain of your loss is felt by all who knew him. I'm sorry for your loss. As a widower I can relate to your loss. God bless you, and the journey you have ahead of you.

I served with Veli Mohr in Finland. I remember him visiting me and my companion when I was a young missionary, and he was in a leadership position. We discovered we both threw the shot, and he asked me to share my personal best--I'd done very well in High School. Then I pressed him to share his best, and although it was clear he was far better, he was so kind and humble that I felt no sense of competition at all. Then he showed me his belt, which he'd cut holes into as he lost all the muscle mass he'd built up over years of training. He quietly and thoughtfully shared how many pounds he'd lost, and I realized what an incredible sacrifice he'd made to serve a mission. Then he looked me in the eyes with a smile that said, "I'd do it all again to serve the Lord." There was recognition there of the sacrifice he'd made, but no regret. I was deeply impressed with this man. Humble, faithful, kind. He was already a great man at 20. I can only imagine what he was like at 52. Veli Mohr, I celebrate your life, your example. Well done. -Brett Gerlach

Tammy was always a vivacious person when we were in High School. She added a lot to our band as one of our twirlers. I'm sorry to say I didn't keep in touch after we graduated. I knew she battled cancer for a long time, but it sounds like she did Great work spreading the Love of Jesus to so many. I know all of you will miss her, but you know without a doubt what a Wonderful place she is in now. How wonderful to be in the presence of God & Jesus. It just doesn't get any better than that. I am so very sorry though. My Prayers will be with your family.

Heavenly father - thank you so much for allowing us to have had Jack Mohr in our lives for the time he was here on earth. He made our lives so much better by being a living example of what a good person can become, and should strive to be. He made all of us who had a relationship with him feel special in some way. He was a great mentor, leader, friend and teammate. He will truly be missed. But each time we send up a prayer to you, please reach over and hug him for us, because we know he is there with you. We especially ask you to shine your loving glory on his family, and bring comfort to them through this difficult time. Thank you Lord. Amen.

I had the honor of growing up with Jack through high school. We competed together, spent much time talking and joking with each other. I always, always admired Jack. So much so that I named my first-born son after him. Our family now has a Jack William Mason. One of my favorite moments was getting the chance to tell Jack Mohr in person that I had named our Jack after him and, in classic Jack Mohr style, he was surprised and very humble. I have so many memories of Jack that I could write a book. Some really stand out. He was so sharp, and so kind. I remember when our football coach once said, “Practice doesn’t make perfect” and just pointed to Jack who said “Perfect practice makes perfect”. It was a quick moment but one that I think explains our beloved Jack so well. Jack was a natural-born leader, doing an excellent job running our defense huddles as #51. A great athlete, and when he couldn’t out-athlete the competition, he’d outsmart them. I want to thank Jack’s mother for the rides home from track events in what I remember as an old, restored Studebaker. I want to give my condolences to his lovely sister Gail. It’s no exaggeration to say that of all the people I’ve known in my life, I have admired Jack the most and feel so lucky to have known him.

Richard and a Cheri Risher posted on 11/20/19
Gail and family, So very sorry to hear of your brother’s passing. I hope you and your family will be comforted, at some point, by the Atonement and the sure knowledge of those eternal bonds that earthly violence can never break. Our hearts and souls mourn with you as you pass through this terrible ordeal. May God grant your family the strength, courage and faith to persevere.

You will be missed grandmother.... You were always so good about writing letters to me and keeping me up with what was going on with everyone in the family. I would get a 5 page or more letter (both sides) with the cursive handwriting I’d know anywhere. You were really the only mother I had known as a child and I am grateful for your care. What I am most thankful for though, If I had to pick one thing you made the most difference in my life was, I believe you prayed for me (and rest of the family) and you brought me to church when I was young. You introduced me to Christ, and in that you helped save my life. I will always be grateful for a praying grandmother and for the seed you planted in a young child’s life that ultimately brought me to have a relationship with Christ and an eternal salvation. I will see you again, No doubts! I love you grandma! JeAnna Damron

My family had the honor of getting to know Jack during dinner at our home on Sunday November 3rd. We were touched by the genuine tenderness when he spoke of his wife and children, inspired by his deep love for Finland, and in awe of the amazing opportunities afforded him though his schooling and career. He radiated pure goodness, and his kind, calm demeanor easily drew others to him. I will always be grateful Jack came to our home that day. As I learned about his remarkable life over dinner and now reading more, I keep thinking- this man lived an incredible life because of who he was. We are so very sorry for your loss, and we pray that the gospel of peace will provide enough comfort though this time and sustain you until you see your beloved Jack again. With love, the Nguyen family

We were driving a golf cart around the facility when it broke down. Tammy was really struggling to walk then, and at about 120 lbs, I pushed the cart with Tammy in it, and we were both laughing so hard we nearly...well you know the rest of that story! I’m so glad she touched my life! My heartfelt condolences to those precious daughters she loved so much.

I will miss Jack and his steady calm assuring demeanor no matter the issue. I always managed to get a smile from Jack when I’d lay a good Aggie joke on him or try and bend it to a BYU ordeal. Me being an undergrad, or as I oft reminded Jack a ‘real Aggie’, Jack did his post grad work at Aggieland he is 100% a true Aggie - know this. Muster April 21, 2020 I’ll answer the roll call ‘here’ for such a kind, smart co-worker and solid family man who knew God in his heart. You’ll be missed Jack I hope the family and those who were oh so lucky to know Jack realize how blessed we were to have shared such joyous times together. My sincere condolences to your family and friends, you’ll be missed and remembered my friend,

Jack was a fun cousin to Tammy, Trinda and Ed Mohr. Visiting with his parents to the home ranch in Canby, CA. many times with his sister Gail and brother Karl. At one time he was visiting with Oma, the kids Grandmother,but ended up at our house for a few days. What a great kid, who ended up such a great man to come to such an untimely end.

Our oldest auntie is asking for a cremation service once she lay down to rest in the arms of our creator. It was interesting to read that a memorial service can still be followed after the cremation process to gather the families of the deceased to remember them in a special way. Moreover, we are still thinking of other options for most of our cousins are far, but, we are checking the rates for cremation and the traditional funeral service.

We stayed with Dorothy and John at their place and worked with Dorothy on many 4-H and WTQHA projects. A visionary, loved horses, loved the kids and their horse families, loved West Texas, a true patriate, She was the heart beat of the West Texas QH industry for 20 years. Passionate, tough in a very sweet way, ornery smile and always sparking eyes. I learned what tough and gracious West Texas rancher women were like from Dorothy Castleman..

I remember Sue when the family (Brady Bunch as I called them) lived in Pampa. She had the most spotless house, perfect hair, perfect fingernails, and lipstick that matched. It was a coral color! Susie and Linda always had perfect hair as well. Sue did not love it if we walked in the living room where she had freshlly "raked" the shag carpet. Each time I go to Pampa to see my parents, I pass by your house on Duncan. It brings back so many fun memories. Kris I remember you and Charles Bowers playing "Smoke on the Water" in the car. : ) I am sorry Susie and Kris that your mom has passed away. You were lucky to have had her for 87 years!

I remained close to Joan in the years after Pat died and had the honor of speaking at the luncheon announcing the Joan R. Baskin Scholarship Fund. Joan knew everybody in Midland. She was universally loved. She remained extremely sharp and extremely positive. If you could choose your mother you would choose Joan. I loved and admired her greatly.

Many years ago, I sat in front of Joan Baskin as a Matthew Lynn Scholarship recipient graduating from Midland Lee. As a high school student, she was intimidating and had a distinct opinion about my college career. This was 1987 when the market was crashing. Because of Joan Baskin, the Matthew Lynn Committee at First Presbyterian and Midland Scottish RIte, I was able to go to college. Naturally, when I returned to Midland as an adult, I embraced her and told her thank you every time I saw her. She changed my life, because when you educate a mother, you educate a family. I acknowledged this impact in my life each time in press interviews. When I read in Barbara Bush's Book, that Matthew Lynn was their minister through tough times in Midland, and to so many people at First Presbyterian. As an adult, I realized the admiration people had for her and her daughter Becky and Doug, her kids and family! I saw her take her grandkids to the Petroleum Museum and she was an active grandmother. It was a privilege with my friend Karmen to sponsor me into Midland Junior League where I could see Joan all the time and give back to Midland! I have an entire collection of news clips which Marilyn Harrison so kindly put me in her column as I support events in Midland, and Joan would send them to me and say "Your Fan!" Thank you Joan for changing my life. I am comforted by her loss.. knowing that she raised incredible kids which I know will continue to lead and build Midland for generations to come. Their active voice in government, business and leadership is a beautiful heritage. My sincerest love for Doug and Becky Ferguson, their children, and the entire Baskin family. Kimberly Harless Smith, Reverend Byron Smith, Ethan, Jack and Cameron.

Joan is one of the kindest, gentlest people I have ever known. Her passing is a great loss to her family and to the community she so loved. I will never forget her.

Wendell Mayes, Jr. posted on 11/11/19
Our family met Joan Baskin and her family shortly after we moved to Midland in 1957. The Baskin children and the Mayes children were about the same ages, so our families became good friends quickly. It was several months after we became friends that we discovered that Joan’s father, Silas Ragsdale, and my father, Wendell Mayes, had been boyhood best friends—they started to school together and shared a two-person first grade desk. Joan said my wife, Mary Jane, was the sister she did not have,. Joan remained a precious friend after Mary Jane suffered Brain Damage in 1992, and she gave warm comforting support even though we then lived in Austin, not Midland. Joan visited us in Austin three weeks before her death. I will treasure that one-hour visit for the rest of my life. Wendell Mayes, Jr.

I remember your dad when I worked at Yoakum National Bank. He was, just as stated, such a gentleman. I spoke with him occasionally when I was still working, but have been retired almost 3 years. I will keep you and your family in my prayers, what a great life he had.

Wanda Sewell posted on 11/10/19
Words escape me when I think of how I should describe Joan Baskin. She was everything to everybody. I doubt if she realized how important she was to so many people and her community. When I left Midland she remained my friend by email and Facebook. I always looked forward to her Christmas cards with pictures of her lovely family. My husband was the basketball coach at Midland High when we married and first met her. For the remainder of his days she called him "Coach". I know he welcomed her into Heaven to hear her call him that again. God gained another angel when he welcomed Joan Baskin.

Daddy I miss you so much; you are the best man I have ever known. I never imagined just how hard this was going to be. I can't call you at work anymore and the chair at the head of the table will always be empty. Mom, you and Daddy showed me what marriage is all about the hard work that it takes to last 57 years. I lost my daddy but you lost your husband that you'd been with longer than I have been alive. My daddy was such a good man. He is all the best man that I have ever known, he was kind and showed me unconditional love. No one on this Earth has come close to showing me love the way my daddy did. He showed me what it was like to love someone while everyone else pushed them aside thinking they were unlovable. Daddy, I love you and I miss you have fun singing with the angels, I'll see you soon. Love, "Raul" Catherine

Catherine A Leps posted on 11/10/19
I still can't believe my Daddy is gone. I love him so much. Mom I'm thinking about you and praying that you will be comforted with the knowledge that you were the luckiest woman to have been married 57 years to such a good man. My daddy was the best man I've ever known; I can only aspire to be like him. He was the only one on this Earth that loved me unconditionally, no matter how many mistakes I made (there are many) but he always stood by my side weather silently or very quietly while whispering words of encouragement when hugging me goodbye. This the hardest thing I've ever had to do; saying goodbye to the only one who believes in you is so painful, my entire body aches. Mom, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know now why you married my dad. Thank you for showing me that marriage is hard work that is well worth the effort. Daddy loved you so much, I saw it in the way he looked at you and spoke of you. Don't be sad Mom, Daddy is exactly where he is supposed to be... no more pain, no more doctos or hospitals. Rejoice! Daddy is whole again; in his heavenly body singing with the angels.

"Frosty" as he was known as a KWEL caller was my favorite caller. He called in my oil & gas program on Tuesday morning asking about different things of interest, often sending me out to do some "homework" for something I could not answer off the top of my head. He is in a better place, but I will miss his very recognizable voice. RIP Frosty Morris Burns

I was sad to hear about this loss to our work family. It was a great part of my day coming into dispatch and speaking with Roger. He had an outlook on life that was amazing. Every time we spoke, as I was leaving, I would stop and say goodbye. He would respond, "if the Lord 's willing and the creek don't rise." You will be missed Good Sir! To his family, condolences and prayers for you.

Molly, Monica, Willie, David & Eric - and extended families.... I am so sad at the passing of your sweet husband, father, and grandfather. Mr. Lewis was such a bright spot in all of our lives. A man of integrity, loved his family dearly, a good friend, and an amazing individual all around. I am thankful you had him this long, and I realize the loss is so great. No-one could fill his shoes. He was one of a kind! (and a good kind, I will say). Many prayers, thoughts, and heartfelt sorrow along with each of you. Praying that the coming days, weeks, months, and years that you can gain strength and carry on the beautiful legend that Mr. Gene has left. What a legacy! Much love, Brenda & Rick Guill

Uncle Loewen was certainly one of the kindest, dependable, and honest guys you'll ever meet. He was cut from the solid cloth of Charles Henry and Mabel Ann with whom he is now rejoined. He also had a wonderfully dry sense of humor. The twinkle in his eye and sharp wit reminded you he was a Standley through and through. Laughing at life was so easy for him. He was also a very decent man, a solid father, and a very loving husband. When he left us, he was surrounded by his daughters Tammy and Kristy- always remember how strong you were and how important it was for you to help him in that journey.

Love is a bond that death cannot part. Gone from your arms, but still held". I am so sorry for this huge loss to your family. Prayers for you all during this heartbreaking time.

To all of Jeff's family, we are so sorry for your loss. May the good Lord bring comfort to your hearts & souls. Jeff was a great guy who was taken far to soon from his earthly home. He is rejoicing w/ the angels & is at Jesus' right hand & on to his next adventure. I believe there is something beyond here & we too will leave our earthly realm when our time is up. After the pain & finally on to accepting the fact that he was called home, the happy memories will remain even though tears will come through still at times, we must never forget those who walked this earthly life w/ us. Yes, remember & laugh & shed a tear for those times. God bless you all!

Senta is a beautiful person inside and out. She always had a smile on her face when I would see her. I love going to work everyday to see this smile and when I left medical records I would see her down the hall she still had that beautiful smile and always gave the biggest hugs!! Even when she was not feeling well, she always ask for my daddy and my family!! Senta you will be missed very much and now you can shine your beautiful smile in heaven and watch over your family and friends. May God Bless your family at this time of need and may God comfort them during this time of grief. Love you my beautiful Angel Senta. Debbie Gomez

What a beautiful person we have lost. I have known Senta for 20 years. She not only was beautiful on the outside but beautiful on the inside. She always did for others and truly listened to what they said. She was always asking about my family even while she was here in the hospital. I saw her about a month ago and she asked how my sister was even though she was hurting and hospitalized. Tanasha, you and your family have my deepest sympathies. I will always remember her and she will always bring a smile to my face when I think of her.

Pamela Chambers posted on 10/21/19
My sincere condolences to the family. Nikki & Tanasha please know that your mother was a very special woman.

Steve and I we’re college friends and roommates at different times. I trained Steve at the Artic Circle hamburger restaurant in Aberdeen during our college years. I doubt that’s what encouraged him to enter a career in restaurant management. One summer we lived at Mina Lake outside of Aberdeen while working our way thru school. We had a blast that summer. But the funniest thing all summer was one evening upon returning from work loading trucks at Coca Cola bottling plant. A bat had gotten into our trailer house and scared the death out of Steve. He grabbed a 22 rifle that I had in my bedroom and tried to shoot the bat inside the trailer. He shot out the glass on the front door, missed the bat and had to wait in his car until I got home to help. Here he was this big strong college football player scared to death of this little bat. Every year or so Steve and I would visit for an hour or two on the phone. I will surely miss those calls. My sincere condolences to the family. I will forever cherish my friendship with Steve

Sherry was a wonderful part of our Christian women's group, Ladies Nite Out, for many years. She loved the pajama parties, luaus and other special events that we had. She would bring other ladies to our events, especially Queen For A Day, which was a huge retreat/spa day. She has been greatly missed since moving to Texas. We will always remember her love for people, animals and the color orange!! She had a very big heart and she loved her family. but most of all she loved Jesus. She was so concerned about the salvation of others and is one of the things that made her so special. We are so sorry for her loss, but know that we will see her again one of these days in heaven. Hopefully all of those wonderful animals she rescued have also been able to greet her. May God give you peace and comfort in this time of sorrow.

I know how much Eric meant to y’all, I remember listening to how proud Milton was when he would watch Eric run. Milton was such a mentor, and amazing big brother. Belinda loved Eric more than words could express. Even after he joined the army, Belinda managed to still always check on him.. God gained such a brave angel, and he needed Eric more than we did. Also typo on the Obituary, he was survived by Blood Brother, and sister in law Milton and Belinda Castillo as they were not listed. **

Several years ago, I was blessed to have Nick Dillon cross my path in life. I worked with him many years as his Realtor on a number of transactions. We became good friends. Nick always had a thirst for knowledge. If he did not know how to do something, he studied it until he accomplished it. He asked me if I knew a builder to teach him how to build. I hooked him up and he grew from building houses to commercial buildings. Years later, he wanted to know the ins and outs of drilling wells. He traveled to be with my husband on a drill site. He soaked in the procedures of the making of a well. Of course, he went on to do many disposal well site locations. He was always loyal and kind. After I left the Midland/Odessa area, we still chatted from time to time. I shall miss those moments. God be with his family. May calm and understanding be in their hearts. Nick, sleep well. May happiness be in your soul. Until we meet again. Love, Janis Gregory DeBusk Ruidoso, New Mexico

I first met Steve when we were freshmen on Northern's football team. I knew right off Steve was different from the other players on the freshmen team - in a good way. We bonded nearly instantly and became friends through our college years. We roomed together as sophomores - I think our GPA's suffered a pretty major hit, but that's part of it. Steve and I remained friends after college and worked together in a beef packing plant for a couple of years trying to figure out what we did not WANT to DO for the rest of our lives. Finally, Steve moved to Texas and raised a family. We remained friends thru the years. Steve and I always had something to yuck about and the memories abound. I don't want to dwell on Steve's football career a great deal, but know that Steve was an All-State football player in 1969 and earned All-District player of the week for his work while playing on Northern State's offensive line in college - he was a very good football player. Boys, your Dad was one tough hombre! I will miss Steve and sharing our lives together, I know you're in a better place now, Steve but I will always remember you. With love to you Mark Shannon

Steve and I were teammates our junior and senior year of high school and my freshman year of college. We shared a lot of great memories from high school and college through sports and hanging out. The memories have kept Steve in my thoughts throughout the years. The memory that comes up most often is from our senior year of football. We had run a play on offense, as I walked back to the huddle, I saw Steve lying on the ground, with his hands on the helmet ear holes, rocking back and forth on the ground. Coach Gauer and I got to Steve at the same time. Coach asked Steve were it hurt, Steve replied that he had been hit in the private area. Coach then asked Steve why he was holding his hands on his head. Steve looked at Coach and replied, "Are you crazy, do you think I want everyone here to know where it hurts?" My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. I remember nothing but good times and laughs with Steve, rest in peace big guy, see ya on the other side.

Our deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. Gene was a tremendous man with many outstanding accomplishments, none greater than his loving family. The Bible says " We have different gifts according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy do it cheerfully." (Romans 12: 6-8) Gene had many of these gifts and will be remembered for each unique way he used them to glorify Christ. Rest in peace Uncle Gene. With love, Les, Kathy, Kayla, Kyle, and Kim Isaacs

EJ played at Tech when I was in jr high. He was amazing. He was tall, broad shoulders, thin waisted, and really wore the football uniform like a real player. Coach Dewitt Weaver said if he had a physique like EJ he woulnt have to buy any clothes except a bathing suit and he would just wear that yesr round. When EJ was a senior he made the North-South All stars. He played center and another all - american from LSU, Billy Canon, played on the other team. On a 4th down EJ centered to the punter and raced downfield full speed. He collided with Canon just as he caught the punt. The collision was a mack truck hitting a cement post. The stadium was silent and erupted when both EJ and Canon got up and trotted to the sidelines unhurt ! Ill never forget that! Some 30 years later EJ and wife, Sandi, were guests at our oldest daughter's weddin. The wedding planner didn't show . It was hectic at the church. No one had been designated to pass out the programs. EJ didn't miss a beat . He grabbed the programs and walked down the center isle handing to those already seated.., then stood in back to hand to the rest coming in. I was impressed. What a good guy! He and Sandi are special people! EJ will be missed! Folks like him dont come along every day !

Kind always to whomever I introduced him to - my Cornhusker fans were so appreciative how well he treated them when they were in Lubbock for a game and he sat with us at our table for pregame in Red Raider tent for lunch. Class through and through and one of the blessings in my life. My good friend who played on the Chiefs with him (Ed Budde - and his wife Carolyn) often shared KC stories about his kindness to his teammates, their families and the KC community. RIP - Heaven just became a more joyous place! Ken Furman Ocala, Florida

I have so many fond memories of this wonderful woman. She was my second mom as she was to many others. She guided me when my kids were teenagers. I have fond memories of trips we made to Midland for dr appointments. The laughs we shared and the wonderful memories of her. I think about being at the cabin with her and Joe. She enjoyed seeing the fish my kids caught. I was with her when she lost her brothers. J.C. truly loved his little sister. She had a smile that would light up a room. My heart and love and prayers to the family always.

I never had the privilege of meeting him but even though related. My youngest brother idolized him and had EJ’s #55 during his High School football career. Not having the opportunity to meet him is an extreme misfortune for me. Hopefully; someday “On the Other Side”. R.I.P.

Where to begin. I knew your voice reassuring me before we ever met. Then we starting working side by side and you taught me so much more. We tried to arrange a marriage between our kids but that was not to be. I am glad they have remained good friends. You did a great job raising that respectful young man. He is always welcome in our family. I will miss our talks, sorry I never made it to Granbury and you never made it back to Treasury. Your CNB family will watch over your family as I know you will be watching over all of us. I will miss you and remember you always. Your fight is finish and God needed back home. I'm sure you and Sue are dancing together free of pain. Rest in peace girlie. Till I see you again. I love you.

God brought EJ into my life a few short months ago. I had the honor and the privilege to bring communion to EJ on Sunday's. I am blessed beyond words to have shared with him our LOVE of the Catholic Faith, Prayer, and the Eucharist. RIP EJ. No more suffering. No more pain. You are now healed and in the arms of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. May eternal rest be granted unto you and may the perpetual light shine upon you always. With deepest sympathy to the family and many prayers, Jennifer White

He was a great person. He was always there to give advice or lend an ear when needed. He never met a stranger and loved telling stories. There was many a times that I got to listen to his music as Joy would play or sing with him. My fondest memory was the day my son and his grandson Lee came into this world and the smile and gleam in his eye said it all when he got to hold him for the first time. He will be missed by many.

We had the most wonderful of several summers visiting with Joe's folks, Mary and Clayton (Cakie) Powless and the Pujol's in their backyard on Cimmaron St. in Midland. John Pujol was Clayton's boss at Getty Oil in Midland in the Vaughn Building downtown Midland. I believe the building was located at Texas & Big Spring Streets. The running joke was My BD was the 28th of July, Ophelia's was the 29th of July and Joe's was the 30th; so we celebrated Ophelia's.. The backyard was lush and beautiful with all kinds of flowers and a huge weeping willow tree at the right as you walked out onto the patio. Joe, "May the Road Rise to Meet you, May the Wind be ever at your Back; the Sun shine warm and upon your face; The Rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, "May God Hold you in the Palm of his hand."

She was still the same warm, caring and most beautiful (inside and out) teacher--ever! It is my belief that the Angels were her guide, as they led her into Paradise, and took her Home, to the New Jerusalem. I know she didn't walk, but she RAN up the streets of gold, straight into the arms of our Lord! My most heart-felt condolences to all her family.

Choosing cremation or burial is a personal choice, and it is all about making what you feel is the right choice. You need to feel comfortable with your decision, as it will help you to come to peace with the situation.

It is good to know that you can still have a funeral service and then the cremation later after the memorial service. As you mentioned, having a memorial service and viewing will help many have a sense of closure that can be so critical in our lives. Having a memorial service seems to be the utmost importance and it shouldn't be neglected even if you are cremating.

I know that you did your very best to be the best Mother and Wife that you could be. You will be forever in my heart. I know you will be watching over me and protecting me. I love you till eternity ❤️

Corky will live on and on through and because of all his hard work in establishing the premier company, The Bosworth Company, which has succeeded in helping so many people. I remember him as the father-in-law to my daughter Shannon and grandfather to Trey, Morgan, Catie, Annabeth and John. He was always kind to me, generous to all of my family through his son Randy. I am very sorry Julie. If there is anything I can do to help please let me know. May God’s loving arms especially encircle you now and my daughter and her family.

My love & most heartfelt sympathy to the family of this beautiful, loving aunt of mine! I cherish the memories of all of the times we had together-she was like a second mom, & I spent as much time at their house as Karon & I were able to talk the parents into! She will be missed by her earthly family, but what a day of rejoicing it was when she arrived in Heaven, & what joy it is for us to look forward to seeing her & the rest of our "bunch" again someday! Our prayers are with you for peace & comfort now & in the days ahead! Sherry & Jim

I went to school with John at MHS. I remember him to be a quiet, kind young man, someone liked by all. It didn’t surprise me that he served his country with honor and distinction and for that i am grateful. I send my most sincere condolences to his family.

We mourn with you … and believe with you that "neither death nor life … nor anything else in all creation is able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus, our Lord." Melvin used to attend the Lutheran church in Rankin on occasion when my dad conducted services there in the late 1960s and early 1970s. May God give the family the peace and comfort only He can give.

I didn’t know John personally but I do know Becky & her daughter ... I know Becky loved John & he was a good husband & a great granddaddy to his grandkids ... he’s like my husband Dean ... you couldn’t tell they were not connected by blood ... But that doesn’t make a parent or grandparent ... time spent together , love exchanged & mutual respect is what makes a parent or grandparent ... John’s heart was big enough to give both ... His place in Heaven is reserved & I look forward to knowing him in eternity ... sincerely , Connie Hargrave
