Leon retired from Boiler Room Engineer at Boeing Aircraft. He was for sure a simple man.  Simple the way the Ten Commandments are simple.  The way the truth is simple.  He was an excellent skeet shooter and he loved doing it.  Leon was soft-spoken, so humble, and always ready to manufacture some fun.  He lived with a n innocent strength and a sweet freedom.  Leon liberated, never holding back in the unmistakable affection he felt for so many people.  He love Wichita Kansas but was happy to move to Center, Texas.  He worked for and, in time, led causes given over to making his hometown an ever better place to live, serving on many boards, and being a part of many community organizations. In fact, in the dwindling dreams of his last three years, Leon Parrott, stood forthright with his family and friends, no attempt whatsoever to hide the slow progress of his affliction.  But the old Leon sparkled through, warming and lighting the room, even as darkness walked closer.  At the end, his laughter, the only speech that mattered.  

 

He is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Mary Parrott; children, Rebecca Ross and husband Dave, Patricia Parrott, Rajina Parrott; stepchildren, Sandra Cambron, Vicky Fletcher and husband Jeffrey, Kenny Chapman and wife Tracy; 20 grandchildren; 18 great grandchildren; 2 great great granchildren; brother, Terry Parrott; sister, Luella Huson; numerous nieces and nephews; and a host of family and friends, not to forget his dogs, Stormy and Maleno, that will miss him dearly.

Tommy Ray West was born on a farm outside of Zwolle, Louisiana.  He spent most of his life in Zwolle where he graduated from high school in 1948.  He loved playing baseball and basketball, and played both for Zwolle High School.  Immediately after graduation, he enlisted in the US Air Force. He was sent to Germany just after WWII had ended and his enlistment was for two years.  Because of the situation in Europe at the time, his enlistment was extended two more years.  He was stationed in Rhein Main, Germany where they were carrying out what they called “The Berlin Air Lift”.  This was a program in which food was being flown into the people there, because they had no food available.

 

He was assigned to the finance office during this time and the work there defined his life’s work as an accountant.  He returned to the states and discharged from the Air Force in about 1952.  Upon his discharge, he immediately enrolled in Northwestern State College and in the spring of 1953, he met Alice Zenter. In January, 1955, after he graduated, they were married.

 

Upon graduation, he was hired by Atlas Doors and worked there for six years.  During this time, the company was sold and became E.L. Bruce.  In 1961, he moved his family to Louisiana for nine years.  E.L. Bruce called him to return to Center to work for them again. He remained there until his retirement in 1993.  He worked for the company for a total of 39 years.

 

Tommy is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Alice West. They had four beautiful sons who also survive him: Ronald (Ronny) West and wife, Connie of Georgia, Danny West and wife, Susan of Center, Troy West and wife, Kim of Azle, Kerry West and wife Florence of Center; 11 grandchildren; 14 great grandchildren; sister, Margie West Homer of Kent, Ohio; and a host of family and friends that will miss him dearly.

Tana Leigh Wilson Hairgrove

 

 

Tana Leigh Wilson Hairgrove, 62, of Center, passed away Monday, May 4, 2020, in Center.
Funeral service will be held at Noon, Thursday, May 7, 2020, at Watson & Sons Funeral Home in Center with Bro. Fred Wilcox officiating. Interment will follow at Mt. Herman Cemetery in Center.  Visitation will be held one hour prior to service time.


Tana was born January 30, 1958, in Nacogdoches, to James Paul and Lola Wilson.  She was blessed in her early years to travel with her parents over the United States while her dad sang with the Four Mints.


Tana was a 1976 graduate of Center High School and was proud to be on the dance team, The Chaparrals.


The best time of her life came on October 20, 1988, when her son, Tyler, was born.  She adored him and put everything she had into giving him the best life.  She would attend baseball games in Tyler’s younger years and watched him become one of the best doubles tennis player in the state of Texas, where he and his partner won the UIL State Championship his senior year in 2007.  She was so proud of him and loved him so much.


And, oh how excited she was when Tyler and Amanda gave her a precious granddaughter.  Sadie June was born August 1, 2016.  She was over the moon.  Tana was GuGu to Sadie and they were a pair.  Tana’s eyes would just sparkle when you talked about Sadie.  She loved her so much.


Tana married the love of her life, Tom, on June 15, 1998 in Las Vegas.  She loved Tom so much and they were blessed to get to travel many times to different places to enjoy each other’s company.  Tom has been Tana’s sole care taker for the past number of years while she battled cancer, and yes, she fought to the very end.  Every step she took, he was right beside her.  That’s what you call true love.


Tana finished her associate’s degree from Panola College and was employed at Smith Energy in Carthage.  Tana was a member of Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Timpson, where she was a bright light to all she met.


She is survived by her husband, Tom Hairgrove Jr. of Center; son, Tyler Patterson and wife Amanda of Whitehouse; granddaughter, Sadie June Patterson of Whitehouse; sister, Traci Morris and husband Tommy of Center; nephew, Brent Gregston and wife Jennifer of Humble; nieces, Briana Goodrum and husband E.J. of Hudson, Lindsey Shuler of Garland, and Lauren and Grayson Holt of Forney; great nephews, Noah Gregston, Jonah Gregston, Ezra Gregston, Layton Goodrum, and Colton Shuler; great niece, Taegan Goodrum; sister and brother-in-law, Twila and Joe Parker of Garland; and special friends, Sherry, Sharon, Sarah, Beth, Racheal, Tina, Shirley, Sharon Nelson, Mary, Tri-County Employees, and Smith Energy Employees.


She is preceded in death by her parents, James Paul and Lola Wilson; brother, Darren Wilson; and grandparents, Buford and Ethel Wilson, Kathryn Houston, and Mack Houston.
Pallbearers will be E.J. Goodrum, Stephen Gamble, Jim Sawyer, Joe Parker, Leon Dykes, and Neal Stephenson.
