As a graduate student at SWTSU in 1977, I received an internship with the City of New Braunfels and began my municipal career there.
Mr. Delashmutt (always referred to him that way while working for him) was my mentor and gave me so many opportunities for advancement.
I can't thank him enough for all he was to me. Luckily I got to know him on a more personable level after he retired from NB.

We have known EN for about 10 years going to the Hope Hospice potluck dinners. For the last 2 years in the month of May my wife baked him a birthday cakes to share at the potluck. He was so surprised and wondered why we knew it was his birthday. He had forgotten that the month before he was going to turn 98 he had told us that his birthday was in May. He shared many wonderful stories about World War II with us all. They were very interesting. He also shared the fact that he got his driver's license renewed for two years and on the purchase of his last new car, the Sonata. He shared some good stories and bad stories. We are so sorry that he didn't make it to age 99. We will miss him at the potluck, but know that he has gone home to be with your mother. Rest in peace EN. Charles & Beverly Jobe
