A.T. Mason was a fun guy to work with. I meet A.T. in 1977 at Spring Branch Service Center (HL&P). A.T. along with Cool CJ and Eddie Wilridge made everyone feel like part of the team. During the late 1980's we were reunited on the same crew for several years. A.T. would answer the call in all types of weather 24/7 to help get the lights on. May the eternal light shine on you and your family. Rest in Peace A.T. and my prayers and condolences to the Mason Family.
