Randall Lee Gallaway '67

The family of Randall “Randy” Lee Gallaway will celebrate his life of 73 years at 2 p.m., Tuesday, September 15, 2020, at Southcrest Baptist Church. Burial will follow at Englewood Cemetery in Slaton, near Mary Ann’s parents. The family will host a time of fellowship and remembrance from 6-8 p.m. on Monday, September 14, at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers, 6025 82nd Street, Lubbock, TX 79424.

In support of public health and safety, face coverings are mandatory while attending the service and visitation.  The service will be live-streamed and available for thirty days on this page. You are encouraged to sign the virtual guestbook, read the full obituary and share memories and expressions of sympathy by selecting the icon.

Randy went to be with the Lord on Thursday, September 10, 2020. He was born on September 9, 1947, to the late Norris Weaver and Mary Virginia (Moore) Gallaway in Austin, TX. Randy was always excited to tell people about Jesus. His senior year of high school, weeks before graduation, he suffered a devastating injury while assisting an electrician at his part-time job as an intern for American Manufacturing in Fort Worth.

Doctors initially said there was no chance of recovery. However, a series of heavenly revelations predicted his survival. Thirty-eight surgeries and more than a year later, Randy graduated from Amon G. Carter Riverside High School in Fort Worth in 1967. However, he lost all of one arm and part of another. Instead of being deterred, Randy was more motivated than ever to make the most of his second chance at life.

He earned an engineering degree with honors at the University of Texas at Arlington, before pursuing a lifetime of missions and ministry work. He graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1978, and doctor of ministry degree from Golden Gate Seminary in 1987.

Randy met Mary Ann Milliken of Lubbock while leading evangelism workshops for the Baptist Student Union at Texas Tech University. They married in 1975. Together they ministered in Dallas, Texas; Riverside, California; North Vancouver, Canada; Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Lubbock, Texas; and all across the country of China.

Randy’s life motto was, “Never give up! As long as there is a breath within you, you must hold onto hope.” That message will live on in print in Randy and Mary Ann’s life story, “Death Knocking, Life Calling,” as well as in the lives of those around the world they have influenced.

Survivors include his wife, Mary Ann Gallaway; children, John Gallaway and wife Chelsea of Casper, WY, and Sage Gallaway of Lubbock; grandchildren, Austin, Gracyn, Callie, and Jaxson; sister, Nancy Cooper and husband Don; and brother, Rex Gallaway.

Kenneth Royce "Ken" Neystel '57

January 26, 1939 - September 9, 2020
Crowley, TX - Kennith "Ken" Royce Neystel, 81, of Crowley and formerly of Clifton, TX, passed away Sept. 9, 2020.

Funeral services will be held at 2 P.M., Monday, Sept. 14, 2020, at Lawson Funeral Home in Meridian. Pastor Amy Alexander will officiate. Burial will be held at the Meridian Memorial Cemetery. Visitation will be from noon until service time Monday, Sept. 14, 2020, at Lawson Funeral Home. Pallbearers will be William Chastain, Andrew Neystel, Alex Neystel, Chris Lane, Bradley Morrow, Braydon Morrow. Honorary Pallbearers will be Donald Davis, Dwain Neystel, and Jeff Blackman.
Ken was born to Orville & Nina Neystel on Jan. 26, 1939 in Meridian, TX. He graduated from Carter-Riverside H.S. and received his master’s degree in Business Administration from TCU. Ken was married to the love of his life, Doris Davis Neystel, on Jan. 9, 1959; they were married for 61 years.
Ken worked for the City of Fort Worth for 19 years, he started as a mail boy and worked his way up to assistant to city manager. He also worked as city manager in Clifton, Palestine, and Benbrook, TX. In Dec. 1995, after almost 19 years as city manager of Benbrook, he retired and moved to the family farm. Even though he retired, he never really retired. He enjoyed his pay phone business and auto part store, Ken's Auto, but most of all he enjoyed working on his cattle ranch.

Dr. Seuss said it best: "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." That quote embodies Ken for both the way he lived and serves as a reminder of how he would want to be thought of. He lived like he loved, with kindness, loyalty, and a smile to share with whoever needed it. Trustworthy and loyal to a fault, he would give you his last 5 dollars, all the while hoping you would use it to share with someone else. He brought joy with his humor and practical jokes, he was never without an encouraging word or life lesson wrapped up in a story, and those stories will live on forever. He leaves behind a legacy and a family that will be forever grateful for the love he gave.

Ken was preceded in death by his parents Orville & Nina Loader Neystel, brother Ronnie Neystel, and infant sister and brother. He is survived by his wife, Doris, his children Scott Neystel and his wife Melissa, Deidre Chastain and her husband Mike Brunet, four grandchildren: William, Andrew, Sarah, and Alex, and three step granddaughters.

Clarence Chesterfield "Buck" Gay Jr. '51

Clarence Chesterfield “Buck” Gay Jr died on August 20, 2020 in Houston Texas. Buck was born in Fort Worth, Texas on December 20, 1933 to Clarence Chesterfield (“Deacon”) Gay and Nina Almedia Neely and grew up in Fort Worth along with his sister Carol and brother David, attending Carter Riverside High School. He was the first in his family to attend college, earning a BS in Aeronautical Engineering from Texas A&M College in 1955, where he was a proud member of the Corp of Cadets. While attending A&M he met Flo Ann Noack on a blind date at an Aggie football game and the two married on August 14, 1954.

After a brief stint with Lockheed in Los Angeles, California, in May 1956 he went into the US Air Force as a 2nd Lieutenant to fulfill his service commitment and began training as a pilot (his dream job) at bases in San Antonio, Texas and Kinston, NC. He was enamored with airplanes all his life and when his dream of flying jets was lost due to a reaction to a flu shot, he focused on designing aircraft and landed in Research & Development at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton Ohio where he was a Project Engineer in the Analysis and Design Branch of the Dynasoar System Engineering Office. In 1962 he was hired by NASA and joined the fledgling effort to put men on the moon by the end of the decade. In 1963, Buck moved Ann and his family to Virginia and began work on the Gemini program at NASA Headquarters in Washington D.C. He continued working there until 1971, receiving the NASA Exceptional Service Award in 1969 for his contributions to the Apollo 11 moon landing. His final years in D.C. were as Director of Space Shuttle Operations, overseeing the development of flight programs, operational requirements, and preflight testing. In 1971, he transferred to the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas where he was responsible for the JSC Shuttle Operations Budget and planning and preparation of space shuttle landing sites in the US and emergency sites in Dakar, Senegal, Spain and Okinawa. A personal thrill was heading a spectacular landing of STS-3 at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. In 1984, he retired from NASA and worked until 1991 for Eagle Engineering, Grumman, and Muniz Engineering, participating in the joint US and Russia spaceflight program and development of the manned space station.

In addition to his fascinating career he led a rich, full life. He was the proud patriarch of a family that included 6 children, 15 grandchildren and 9 great grand kids. To all he was known as Papaw, and he delighted in the large family gatherings on holidays, major achievements, and reunions each year at Surfside Beach.

He traveled extensively, making it to the Pyramids in Egypt, the heart of the Amazon, the Great Wall of China, around the horn in South America, and saw the Serengeti in Africa from a hot air balloon.

He loved hunting and fishing and passed his passion for fly fishing to his children and grandchildren. He taught all his sons and grandsons about sporting guns and introduced them to duck, geese and dove hunting. A highlight of each year for him was an annual fly-fishing trip to some of the top US destinations in Montana, Idaho, Alaska, and Wyoming. While raising his children he served as a scoutmaster, little league coach and umpire, and Pony Colt League President.

He loved adventure and pursued challenging hobbies including flying single engine airplanes and gliders, racing sailboats, and scuba diving. In celebration of his 75th birthday he went skydiving. Not content to merely enjoy these activities, he excelled, learning to fly acrobatics, becoming a gliding instructor, and served as Commodore of the Galveston Bay Cruising Association (GBCA) and was a frequent race champion – thanks to a dedicated crew of close friends.

As his working career wound down, he filled his time by volunteering in the community, serving on the Nassau Bay Parks Committee, and co-chaired the restoration of the Nassau Bay Peninsula and its establishment as a wildlife preserve. He also served on the CCISD Education Committee and was the photographer for Nassau Bay City Council meetings.

He was extremely proud to have worked with the Bay Area Habitat for Humanity for nearly 25 years, helping build over 100 houses for needy families before finally hanging up his tool belt at the age of 84. He greatly valued the many close friendships he developed during his tenure.

He was a member of St Paul’s Catholic Church in Nassau Bay since 1971 and was a Eucharistic Minister for 30 years. He was also active in the Knights of Columbus where he served as Grand Knight for 2 years. Each 4th of July he stayed up nearly all night helping to prepare barbeque for their primary fundraiser.

He was preceded in death by his parents Nina and Deacon, and his sister Carol Lynn Lawson and is survived by his beloved wife of 66 years Ann, brother David Conrad Gay, sons Richard Lee Gay, Ronald Lynn Gay, Robert Glen Gay, and Randall Lawson Gay and daughters Linda Gay Dunk and Laurie Gay Vaughn.

Robert Jeffery Jordan Jr. '86

Jeff Jordan passed away on Friday, January 31, 2020 in Ennis, Texas. 

Jeff was born in Fort Worth, Texas on August 11, 1968 to Pamela and Robert Jordan. Jeff grew up in Fort Worth and attended high school at Carter Riverside. Jeff started working at Winn-Dixie grocery store at age 16 for 18 years and continued his career with H-E-B in Ennis after Winn-Dixie left Texas until his passing at age 51.

Jeff was always known as a hard worker; his co-workers and customers could always rely on him to be there. He earned the title of Signature Partner at HEB and received awards such as the Because People Matter award because he treated his customers so well. According to HEB a signature partner “is someone who a Customer will drive past multiple competitors to see. They connect with customers because it fills their bucket, not because it’s expected.” Jeff would tell his family all about his customers and how they would come in every day to see him. He was very proud of these relationships he made.

Jeff was a natural born hunter. He loved to hunt and fish, not only the act of hunting but the time spent in nature or on the lake. As much as he loved to hunt in nature, he loved to hunt for opportunities to make someone happy. He would go above and beyond to create a unique, memorable experience. This was apparent in all the vacations he would take his family on. From crab fishing to digging for gold to late night poker games to staying in the most haunted room at a haunted hotel, it was never a dull moment on one of Jeff’s trips.

While Jeff did love to hunt game, he also had a love for animals like no one you’ve ever seen. He had quite a few dogs over the years that he loved more than his own children, as they liked to jokingly say. He had many other pets that he cared for throughout his lifetime as well; cats, horses, pigs, chickens, birds, rabbits… he was like a real-life Dr. Dolittle in the way he would communicate with animals.

Jeff is survived by his loving wife of 20 years, Sylvia Marie Jordan; daughter, Jessica Davis and husband Jerod Davis; son, Spencer Bailey; two grand-daughters Jocelyn and Jordan Davis; Mother, Pam Gerland; Sisters, Denise Jordan and Tina Belcher; Grandfather, Curtis Bollier and his 12 nieces and nephews.

Jeff is preceded in death by his father Robert Jordan Sr.

A memorial service will be held at the Avenue Church, 906 S. Kaufman St. Ennis, TX 75119 on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.

Jeff will be cremated; his family will have a private interment in Granbury, TX at the Holly Hill Memorial Park Cemetery at a later time.

I admired hearing her stories of the places she would travel and the memories she made along her journey. As she makes her way to heaven ... I'll carry on her stories but most of all her love for family and the Lord. Rest in peace, we will miss you dearly.

Bart Smith Bradford '50

FORT WORTH--Bart Smith Bradford of Fort Worth, Texas, passed away Wednesday, May 20, 2020, after a long, well-lived life. Bart was born in Ennis, Texas, on Aug. 27, 1932, to Agnes and Hayden Bradford. Bart graduated from Amon Carter-Riverside High School in Fort Worth in 1950.

Bart attended Texas A&M University as a first-generation college student. During his college years, Bart served in the United States Army from 1953 until 1955 and was stationed at Kaiserslautern Army Base in the Rhineland-Palatinado region of Germany. Bart returned to Texas A&M following his service and graduated in 1957 with a degree in landscape architecture, only two of which were awarded that year.

As a young man fresh out of college, he landed his first professional job as a draftsman with Stewart King working in the historic King William area of San Antonio. In 1959, the city of Fort Worth hired Bart as the assistant director of Planning in the newly created Department of City Planning. In this position, Bart had an opportunity to help create plans for Fort Worth, an endeavor that had not been undertaken since the late 1920s. In fact, at that time, the city's planning office had antiquated subdivision and zoning ordinances, no planning tools or land use information, and didn't even have a map of Fort Worth.

In 1965, Carter and Burgess, Inc., a burgeoning engineering firm of fewer than 15 employees, offered Bart a position to join a small team of engineers. Over the years, Bart's team built the firm into a large, multidisciplinary company providing engineering, design, planning, and construction management services to public and private clients in the fields of transportation, planning, environmental, communications technology, real estate, and land development. Bart retired in 1997 as the vice president of Marketing.

Bart married Nancy Bailey in 1974 and was a loving husband who cared deeply about his family. Family first was his creed, and there was nothing he enjoyed more than being with family and good friends, of which he had many. His wife, Nancy, was his best teammate and the love of his life. His children, Vincent and Kyle, brought him great pride, and one of his greatest thrills was the birth of his grandson, Charles Bradford, in 2019.

Throughout Bart's life, he took a keen interest in the neighborhood of Ryan Place, where he and his wife, Nancy, happily lived and raised their loving family. In the 1970s, Bart was one of the founding members of the Ryan Place Improvement Association (the RPIA). His planning skills proved to be a great asset to the RPIA, and he was instrumental in developing Daggett Park and promoting a tree planting campaign, both of which resulted in a greener, more beautiful neighborhood. After retirement, he turned his energy towards creating a community renewal plan for Ryan Place. He surveyed and recorded the condition of every street, tree, sidewalk, curb, and empty lot in Ryan Place. He then made detailed recommendations to the city of Fort Worth and used his influence, contacts, and know-how to help the RPIA obtain funding to improve the streets, curbs, and sidewalks in Ryan Place. He was also instrumental in the implementation of traffic calming measures in Ryan Place, which include three traffic circles on historic Elizabeth Boulevard and chicanes throughout the neighborhood. Many of the improvements in Ryan Place can be attributed to Bart's planning skills and his love of Ryan Place.

Bart was charismatic, interesting and a wonderful conversationalist and listener. He loved to travel and was fortunate enough to visit many parts of the world. He studied history and was particularly interested in Texas history. He consumed many books each year, mostly about history, and it was not unusual for him to plan a trip around a historical location or event.

His fascination with history led him later in life to develop a deep interest in his own ancestry. He conducted research for many years and was able to trace his maternal and paternal lineage back over two hundred years. Bart's passion for ancestry created volumes of family history for future generations to enjoy. Bart delighted in sharing his research with his family. In 2017, Bart took his children, Vincent and Kyle, on a historical road trip to visit sites of his early life, including his childhood home and the town movie theater where Bart spent many an afternoon.

He was a master at organization and planning and enjoyed helping others with their projects, sometimes for an afternoon's entertainment and sometimes spending days researching and planning. He could immerse himself into any subject from landscaping to financial planning to buying a used car. Nine times out of 10, your plan would be mapped out on a "Bart Chart" created on a paper napkin while indulging in the great pleasure of grilled "Bart Burgers." If your project was more complicated, you might find yourself enjoying Bart's famous grilled ribeye steak with garlic, butter, and lemon, fine wine, and a three inch, three ring binder to take home containing the analysis and solutions to your project.

There was always a project and a party around Bart. Everywhere he went Bart made friends, especially on his and Nancy's many trips around the U.S. and to Europe. Friends from near and far loved to visit Fort Worth and stay at the "Bradford Hotel." Bart and Nancy entertained a constant flow of visitors.

SURVIVORS: Bart is survived by his wife of 46 years, Nancy; his daughter and son-in-law, Vincent Bradford and Joe Imoe of Fort Worth; his son and daughter-in-law, Kyle and Callie Bradford of Dallas; his grandson, Charles Henry Bradford; four sisters-in-law; three brothers-in-law; nieces; great-nieces and nephews; and several cousins.

He was predeceased by his parents, Agnes and Hayden Bradford.

When Bart died, he left a huge void in the lives of those who loved him, but we are comforted by his love and inspiring legacy. He is missed and always will be remembered.

CELEBRATION OF LIFE: A celebration of life memorial service will be announced to family and friends at a later date.

MEMORIALS: In lieu of customary remembrances, the family requests that memorial contributions be directed to a charity of one's choice.

Twila Fern McCoy Plant '60

Twila McCoy Plant GRANBURY -- TWILA MCCOY Plant died peacefully, surrounded by family and secure in love of her Heavenly Father at home in Granbury, Texas on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at the age of 77.

FUNERAL SERVICE: Thursday, May 21, 2020, 1:30 pm at First Baptist Church, Granbury, with a graveside service to follow at Mt. Olivet Chapel Cemetery, Ft. Worth, 4:00 pm. Pastor Mike Corb will officiate the ceremony.

All are welcome to attend and celebrate Twila's faith, life and legacy. Twila was born October 27, 1942 in Ft. Worth, Texas to Dewey Listo McCoy and Fern Freudigger McCoy. She graduated from Carter Riverside High School in 1960, marrying Tim Pruitt in February of that year. They lived in Ft. Worth, El Paso, Midland, Ft. Worth (again) and Abilene. Tim and Twila had four children and many happy times as a family.

Twila created many great birthday parties, family outings and activities. She was energetic and ambitious that her family would be one of faith, achievement and creativity. But she also endured the pain of their first, Timi, dying in a car wreck at age 4 and a marriage that ended after 22 years. Through the difficult days and years, Twila grew in her faith, persevered to raise Tad, Shea and Danielle and developed her own career, graduating from Hardin-Simmons University and becoming a Special Education teacher. Twila began a second chapter of family life when she met and married Ross Landrum Plant in 1983 in Abilene.

Twila and Ross found in each other an enduring and sweet love and companionship that reflected their faith, strengthened as they aged, filled their years together and was as perfect sitting together on the porch or in church as it was riding together on a motorcycle. They blended their families of adult and teen children, adding on to the house and taking on all the cars, colleges, conflicts and coordination that such a big family brings. One of the greatest unexpected joys of her life was becoming a second mother to Jody, Elizabeth and Grace and to love them as her own.

Ross and Twila moved from Abilene to Yoakum and lived there for 27 years. They raised longhorns on the Alpha Omega Ranch, served their church, danced, traveled, fought back the huisache (unsuccessfully) and welcomed 14 grandchildren and one great grandchild. Twila loved ranch life with Ross and wanted to share it. She and Ross served and cared for her mother and brother and Ross' brother Burke for many years along with others. Twila and Ross moved to Granbury in 2014, settling down with a smaller piece of land and just a couple of longhorns. Twila took on the diagnosis of Alzheimer's and more recently lung cancer with the same faith, trust, peace-and reliance on Ross-we saw throughout her long, good life and marriage. She died where she lived, at home and around her family. She leaves a legacy of teaching and loving hundreds of kids, especially valuing the underdogs. She imparts an example as loving wife that inspires. She leaves countless lessons, advice and prayers for her family. She leaves an example as a servant and as a follower of Christ who sought to grow, overcome life's trials and pass on her faith. She loved her country. And she moves on now to a better, perfect one. She is preceded in death by her daughter, Timi Fern Pruitt, her parents and two brothers, Dewey L. McCoy, Jr. (Allonia) and Bobby.

SURVIVORS: Twila is survived by her husband of almost 37 years, Ross Landrum Plant; children (and spouses), Jody Plant (Linda), Johnstown, OH; Tad C. Pruitt (Kimberly), Little Rock, AR; Shea M. Pruitt (Dawn), Denton; Elizabeth Plant Jagenberg (Bob), Farmington Hills, MI; Danielle Pruitt Robb (Walter), Austin; Grace Plant Marlatt (Tim), San Angelo.

A brilliant woman, Jackie was salutatorian of her high school class, earning a four-year Borden Scholarship to Texas Tech University.  While there, she was a member of Alpha Lambda Delta, Mortar Board and Phi Kappa Phi, graduating with honors with a bachelor’s degree in Education.  She was an active member of Delta Gamma sorority, the rodeo club and served on the Supreme Court at Texas Tech. 

After graduation, Jackie moved to Goppingen, Germany where she taught first grade for two years at the Army Dependent’s School. Her passion for traveling was sparked here, and she spent a lifetime exploring new places, trying new foods, learning new things, and sharing her experiences with her family and friends. While in Germany, she traveled extensively throughout Europe and the Middle East.  When Jackie returned to the United States, she brought home a German-origin Volkswagen Beetle.

In 1962, she married Seth Thomas Moore, Jr., and they moved to Stephenville, Texas where Seth was manager of the Chamber of Commerce.  They had dated throughout college, often attending sorority and fraternity dances.  After a year of teaching in several rural schools, Jackie became a full-time homemaker and mother.  She was very active in the Chamberlain Elementary PTA.

She helped organize Friends of the Library and was on the Museum board.  Jackie was a life-long member of the Stephenville Study Club.  While in Stephenville, she had a very close-knit group of friends who shared birthdays and Grandmother Showers.

In 1978, after her three children had started school, Jackie earned a master’s degree in Education at Tarleton State University.  She taught in more than 50 schools in the Erath county area for thirteen years, supervising student teachers. Once her children were grown, Jackie continued to be involved in the community. One of her favorite activities was her investment club, Up Your Assets, and she often shared stock tips with her grandchildren.  Jackie and Seth travelled extensively throughout Europe and enjoyed multiple cruises.

Jackie filled her life with art, music, and a life-long love of learning. Jackie loved to design homes and gardens, and with her husband, built more than eight unique homes, including a log cabin in Angel Fire, New Mexico. She painted oil landscapes of the Texas Hill Country and the mountains of New Mexico.  She conducted extensive research to obtain a membership in the Daughters of the Texas Republic and the Daughters of the American Revolution, which culminated in her publication, Family Stories in 2014.  In her summer New Mexico home, she was an active participant in the annual Music of Angel Fire festival. 

In one of her journals, Jackie left the following note: “My love for Seth, my three children and their spouses and those delightful grandchildren has grown and grown.  I am so truly blessed to have you…each of you has graced my life beautifully.”

A celebration of Jacquelyn’s life will occur in a few months.  Tributes or words of condolence can be posted at lacyfuneral.com.
