He also had a bank in Jennings Oklahoma and was the treasurer for the City of Hominy... When he decided to run for County Commissioner District 2 Creek County, he found his "niche" in life.
His son Thomas Burton had the following children: Robert Dale "Bobby", Thomas Burton Jr. (Tommy) and Ronnie (now deceased) . His Son Roy Dee had Carol Jean... My mother Dorothy was his only daughter, she had my brother Larry and me, the baby of the family....
Grandpa lived to be almost 96.... time took him from a tall and strong, hard working man in his younger years to a weakened physical condition in his aged years.... but time never weakened his mental health nor his character... he is still strong and tall in that respect.. by everyone that had the pleasure to know and love him....
He was a kind and gentle man, unfaltering in his faith and integrity.
