I first heard of Percy Jeane and his family when I was working for Red Hughes from 1978-83 in Victoria. Red loved to talk about his friendship with Percy and the many family vacations that they spent together RVing in the Rocky Mountains.
Over my 40 years with CPL/CSW/AEP my path crossed with Percy at occasions like the Annual Managers Conference. Percy was on the Power Plant side, & I was on the Transmission/Substation side of the company.
I also knew Percy & Marjorie's son, John, who worked for the company, and attended his funeral service back in 1998. Little did I know, that we would lose a son, too, just 6 years later.
My wife, Shirley, and I drove over from Abilene to participate in the funeral services. I felt like we were representing CPL and Red & Margie Hughes by being present. What a wonder service y'all had with remembrances from grandchildren and a nephew followed by comments of several ministers who were associated with Percy. He was a fine example of a committed Christian working in the secular world. He certainly walked his talk.
Our condolences to Marjorie and the family.

I was a partner at Rosewood Funeral Chapels until I retired in May of 2016. I met Mr. Jeane many years ago. He was a fine man and an upstanding citizen in Victoria. May god bless the entire Jeane family especially Joy and Judy who I have known for many years. God bless all of you.

The Good Lord brought home one of his finest creations 5/7/2018. Papa Percy was a man of honor & integrity. I was honored to have him as my grandfather for 38 yrs of my life. His love for his family was unmatched and unconditional. The legacy of PJ will live on and our family will continue to talk about him for gernerations to come. You will always have a special place in my heart that nobody can take from me. I rest easy knowing you will keep me going day by day from up above. I love you Papa....Keep shinning down.

Mr. Jeane was a great guy! I will never forget the day that Mr. Jeane, John, Coach Dennis and I traveled to the start of the Rio Grande river. We traveled through some of the most beautiful country that one will ever see. However, we know that Mr. Jeane is at this very moment is probably hiking in a place that is way more beautiful than anything that we will ever see on earth. The best part of it is that he's with some of his family and friends that he has not seen in quite a while, having a great reunion and getting ready to welcome those of us that were left behind when he passed away. He was a tremendous example of a great Christian gentleman. They don't make them like that anymore.

You are in our thoughts and prayers today and in the future. Please take some small measure of comfort in the special life that he led and the example he set for all of us.

I feel extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know Papa Percy. Not only did I get to know him, but I was able to call him family! Marrying into his family, I saw how his values have been instilled into all of his children and grandchildren. He was a true patriarch and faithful leader of his family. We all knew we could lean on him for anything and he used Gods word to mentor us. I loved watching him interact with his 3 girls. You could see just how much they all meant to him. His belly laugh was the absolute best!! He could always cheer you up with a little joke. Lastly, I loved watching him care for Grammy Liz, his wife of 67 years. That’s when I saw him most Christ like. He was patient, loving, caring and the most uplifting husband I’ve ever seen. I am so lucky to have married one of his grandsons. Papa Percy will sorely be missed but may his legacy live on forever.
