Texie Dell Allison “Tex” was born in Fairy, TX on March 14th, 1930 to Mary Esther (Humphries) Allison and Edward Carmichael Allison. He joined his Lord and Savior on August 11th, 2019 surrounded by his loved ones. Tex was preceded in death by his parents as well as 3 brothers and 6 sisters. He is survived by his wife Doris of Hamilton; son Dana Allison and wife Ronda of Hamilton; son Kelly Allison and wife Katrina of San Marcos; Granddaughter Kristina Allison-Burks, husband Zac and their daughters Leslie and Lauren; Granddaughter Bailey Smith, husband Cole and their son Ty. Grandson Kameron Allison, wife Taylor and their daughter Evelyn and son Hunter; Granddaughter Kristi Allison; Granddaughter Paige Hess, husband John and their sons Lucas and Kamden; and Granddaughter Emily Nuelle and her husband Conor. Tex had a strong work ethic at a young age. As a young boy he would ride his bike 8 miles down the road to pen sheep for a nickel. As an early teen he helped his father run a service station in Fairy, Texas. Tex lived a life filled with serving others. At 14 years old, Tex drove the Fairy school bus when all the men had been sent to war. Tex himself was drafted into the U.S. Army in December of 1951. Tex married his lifelong sweetheart Doris Streater on May 4th, 1952 in Hamilton. Two weeks after they married Tex was shipped out to Germany. He wrote his love a letter every day he was gone. He was honorably discharged in November 1953. Following his military service, Tex had several occupations. He drove a Wonder Bread truck as well as worked for Bell Helicopter in Fort Worth. He finally settled into a lifelong career as a Humble Oil & Refineries (Exxon) distributor. He supplied gas and oil in Hamilton and the surrounding counties for over 40 years. Tex was a respected member of the Lions Club and a member of the First United Methodist Church in Hamilton. Tex had little time for hobbies because he was so focused on his work and raising Beefmaster cattle. However, he always found time for his family and helping others. Tex taught each of his grandchildren to drive and enjoyed evenings on his porch swing. He loved sports and was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan. He played on the very first football team for the Fairy high school. This year Tex and Doris celebrated 67 years of wedded bliss. His legacy of kindness, service, love and memories he left behind will live on through his family, friends and all who knew him.
