Thomas Dent Cochran graduated from Kirkwood High School. He attended Southeast Missouri State College where he met his future wife, Jean Allene Kennedy. He then transferred to the Missouri School of Mines in Rolla (now known as Missouri University of Science and Technology), where he received his degree in Chemical Engineering. After a thirty-year-long career, he retired from Shell Oil Co. His job took him from Deer Park (TX), to Martinez (CA), and eventually back to Houston (TX). He enjoyed following baseball and was a fan of the Houston Astros from their Colt .45 days. He also liked golf, and boating on the California Delta. Most recently, he and Jean enjoyed a number of cruises, including sailing the Caribbean in 2006 in celebration of their Golden Wedding Anniversary. Tom is survived by his brother, John (Pat), of High Point (NC), his two daughters, Susan Cochran of Santa Cruz (CA) and Elizabeth (Greg) Laconis of Houston, and two loving grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife, Jean, and his parents, Jessie and Frank Cochran.
