His job brought him to Texas in 1977 as the Area Gas Supply manager.

He retired in 1992 with 36 years of service.

Tom enjoyed reading, traveling, cooking and shopping for bargains.

Mind you, when he found one he might buy “4” or “more”. We’re still trying to understand how that’s a bargain, especially why anyone would need 4 chain saws.

He is survived by his daughter, Theresa (Bart) Mullins, Nederland, Tx; son, James Woods, Beaumont, Tx; grandsons, Andrew, Matt and Daniel Mullins and a granddaughter, Kaitlyn.
