    What can I say…Nothing but good memories about “Tex” and his family. He knew me from day one from my dad and him being in the Service together. They had pinochle card games, dominoes, Trionimoes, dove hunts, deer hunts, fishing trips, camp outs, cook outs, the CB radio. I had forgotten his handle but had asked his daughter Cindy about it just recently and she reminded me he was “Lone Star”. He was truly one of the “Good Ones.” I wish everyone has the opportunity to have someone like “Tex” in their life. May you Rest In Peace, Mr. Thames. You truly were a blessing to me and my family. Sending love and prayers to Cindy, Walt, Elizabeth, Ashley, David, and their girls. We love you all.

    Daddy you are the greatest man I have ever known and loved in my life. I think about the memories we all had and everything you have taught us during our lives and it has stuck with us every day. Things so tiny to things to things so important that everything stuck. The most important was love and pain of losing you. I miss you ever day. Daddy.
    Sincerely Elizabeth Thames.
    Daddy go run free with Andy I love you you and Kiss Momma for me and Andy too.

  • I worked with Tex at Southwest Gas for so many years and started as a young “green kid” in 1966. On occasion I was assigned to Tex’s truck as a laborer and he took the time to share the knowledge he had in the gas industry to me. For this I am truly grateful and appreciative. Tex was always in a positive mood and such a great gentlemen. Unfortunately Southwest Gas discontinued the “GasLines” booklet we received and I was unaware of Tex’s passing. To his family I send my deepest condolences…
