Tex is survived by his loving wife of 57 years Kathryn; their four children Michael, Craig, Todd and Kristina; six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Tex was born in a manger on the family farm in Keya Paha County Nebraska. His parents inspired him to develop his love of God, Nebraska, family, hard work, John Deer tractors, sports, and his country. He attended the University of Nebraska where he met the love of his life, Kathryn, at a barn dance where they danced all night long and have never stopped.

His great joy and passion poured out onto everyone he came in to contact with and every activity he was involved in.

He aspired to make a difference, to do what is right, and to honor his loved ones. He loved his 39.5 years at Sandia National Laboratories, umpiring softball, UNM Women's Basketball, playing cards, Owl Cafe malts, volunteering at the Atomic Museum, Civitan, boy scout leader, church youth group leader, community involvement.

A memorial service will be held in September. Further notifications will become available.
