ANNOUNCEMENTS

K.W. attended Jim Ned with the class of 1962, please keep his family in your prayers.

Class Of 1962

Kenneth Wayne 'K.W.' Whitehurst

November 14, 1941 - June 11, 2019

 

WINTERS: Kenneth Wayne “K.W.” Whitehurst passed away on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at his home in Winters. A graveside service will be held in the McBee Cemetery, Ovalo, at 2:00 p.m. Friday, June 14, 2019, officiated by Mark Moore of Lawn Baptist Church, directed by Fry-Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola. A visitation will be held on Thursday, June 13 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the funeral home in Tuscola.


Kenneth was born in Tolar, Texas on November 14, 1941 to Clifton Caswell and Addie Jane (Atwood) Whitehurst. His family moved to Ovalo where Kenneth attended school. He began helping his father and brothers as they worked on several ranches west of Ovalo.


He married Gayle June Willingham on January 20, 1961 in Abilene, Texas. As the years passed, Kenneth and Gayle welcomed four children into the family. After working in the machining field and a short stint in the dairy business, he went to the oilfield, beginning with Dowell Services and eventually retired after years of service with Pride Refinery. As the oilfield often dictates, there were several job relocations; however, they eventually settled in northern Runnels County.


Kenneth had a passion for mechanics; from diesel tractor trucks to tractors, he enjoyed them all. At the time of his passing, he was in the middle of restoring an 8N Ford tractor in his shop.


Kenneth was a happy man who deeply loved his family. He loved to laugh and passed the gift of laughter on to his children. He enjoyed the outdoors whether working the land, working with cattle, or simply being near water playing and fishing. Most especially, at his side was his very best friend, Gayle June.


He is survived by Gayle, his wife of 58 years; daughters Candi Edwards and husband Tim, Penny Pinkston and husband Doug; sons Larry Whitehurst and wife Rose Mae, Kelvin Keith Whitehurst and wife Kristi; seven grandchildren: Chris, Wayne, Kevin, Harley, Kaylee, Kade and Emily. He is also survived by thirteen great grandchildren, along with many cousins, nieces and nephews.


He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers: Cleve and Eugene, and his sisters: Desi Ray, Sadie O’Bar, and Rita Lipham.

Charles T. Horton (Lawn Longhorns)

Charlie Thomas Horton

October 14, 1920 - June 6, 2019

 

Charlie T. Horton

Abilene - Charlie Thomas Horton, 98, formerly of Abilene, Texas, went to be home with his Lord on June 6, 2019. Visitation will be at North Funeral Home on Wednesday, June 12, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. A graveside service will be held at the Texas State Veterans Cemetery on Thursday, June 13, at 2:00 pm.

Charlie was born October 14, 1920 in Comanche, Oklahoma, the 6th of 11 children to Virginia and Charley Horton. In 1925, the family moved to Lawn, Texas. Upon graduation from Lawn High School, Charlie joined the US Army. On June 11, 1942, he married the love of his life, Lois Wilson. Lois preceded him in death in 2016 just four months short of their 74th wedding anniversary. 

Charlie served honorably in various parts of the world including in the Pacific Theatre in WWII in the battle of Corregidor, and as an artillery officer in the Korean Conflict. In 1960, after 21 years of service, Major Charlie Horton retired and returned to Abilene where he completed two degrees at Hardin Simmons University. He coached and taught at Jim Ned High School prior to returning to HSU as a coach and teacher. He completed his career at Jefferson Junior High School.

In 2008, Charlie and Lois made the difficult decision to move to Spring, Texas to be close to their daughters. 

Although Charlie gave most of the credit for raising three daughters to his wife Lois, he was a wonderful father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He had a keen sense of humor and was deeply committed to living a life of morality and hard work. He touched the lives of everyone he met and leaves a void in the lives of many. 

He is preceded in death by all of his brothers and sisters. He is survived by his three daughters and son-in-laws; Betty and Dave Douglas of Fritch, Texas, Anita and Clint Miller of Spring, Texas, and Patricia Horton and David Wheatley of Tomball, Texas. 

He dearly loved his 6 grandchildren, Charlie Douglas, Jennifer Douglas Smith, Mark Miller, Alicia Miller Williamson, Eric Wheatley and Alan Wheatley. He also cherished his 12 great grandchildren. The family is grateful for the blessing of his long life. In lieu of flowers, the family asked that donations be made to the Alzheimer's Association or Abilene Meals on Wheels.
