Cowboy left his mark on the world one new friend at a time. He was always the showman. He respected all and teased unmercifully the ones he really loved. He loved life, music and doing his own thing. He treasured all the children at school and on his bus. He was employed at Veribest ISD as a cafeteria worker and a bus driver for 12 years. Every morning he would say "It's going to be a great day!"
When he was young he was a musician and played with his band all over the Concho Valley. His other passion was BBQ. He was the boss of his pit.
Every morning without fail he read his scripture and was a born-again Christian.
Cowboy and Brenda were married for 30 years and never let the sun set on an argument.
He will be missed sorely by those who knew and loved him.
This is where the cowboy rides away.
