Thomas M. "Sonny" Mixon, Jr
Birth: Oct. 21, 1947
Death: Sep. 20, 1999

Better known as "Sonny"

I remember going to a highschool football game with your Daddy, in Beaumont Tx. where Jasper was playing a team and had to sit in a blinding rain storm to see you play football as Quarterback. You won that game, too!!
You later got a scholarship to play ball at Stephen F. Austin, but developed "high blood pressure" and lost your scholarship. It also prevented you from being drafted into the Army.
You then put in almost 20 yrs. with Tennessee Gas Transport, and they laid you off within a couple of months before you qualified for a retirement.
As your first cousin, I never heard of, or saw anything that would suggest that you ever did anything to hurt anyone. You always maintained /presented yourself to be a gentleman.

Sonny, remember when we thought we were cowboys and tried to ride that stupid little ol' shetland pony, and bit the dust? But we did have a lot of fun, so it was worth it. I miss those days.
