James Edward Carlton Jr. (Jim) peacefully passed to be with his Lord on June 17, 2020 after a lengthy illness. He was born in Kingsville, Texas and the family soon moved to Cuero, Texas where he graduated from high school and lettered in five sports. He then enlisted in the Marine Corps and served in China. After being discharged, he graduated from Texas A&M ’49. As an avid fan of Texas A&M sports, he and wife Talu always attended games home and away. Jim worked for Magcobar Drilling Fluids in Texas, Illinois and Canada before being transferred back to Texas. He married Talu Sitterle of Cuero, Texas and during their marriage lived in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oklahoma and after a long career with Dresser Magcobar Industries as Division Manager, retired in Shreveport. Jim was an avid golfer. His love for the game began when he was 12 years old and played as long as he was able. He was known for his quick wit and sense of humor. He was a member of Broadmoor Baptist Church Shreveport, Louisiana and a past member of The Petroleum Club, East Ridge Country Club and a past chairman of The Oil Men’s Golf Association. Jim was predeceased by his parents and grandsons, Little Jimmy Carlton and Dirk Miller Jr. Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 67 years, Talu; sons, Jimmy (Jeri), Tim (Kathy), John (Paulette); grandchildren, Carrie Hampton (Dave), Chase Carlton (Addie) and McCall Carlton; great grandchildren, Jayson and Walker Hampton, Jacob, Riley and Logan Carlton and Dallas Hudson. There will be a family graveside service at Hillside Cemetery in Cuero, Texas at a later date. In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Broadmoor Baptist Church, Shreveport, Louisiana or charity of choice. Special thanks to friends, Lamar Hodges, Bill Murphy and Bill Thompson, and the caregivers at Health Center at Live Oak and Regional Hospice.

I worked with Mr. Carlton at Dresser Ind, Magcobar Division from 1975-1983. I was the area accountant fresh out of college.
What a gentle and humble man Mr. Carlton was to work with.
I loved his quick wit and love for the game of golf.
I would have done anything for him as he was the type boss to always praise your work. He would have given the shirt off his back if you asked for it. You just don't see the type of gentleman he was anymore. You could tell he was a Christian with the fruits he produced. May God reward you greatly for what you did while on earth.
