Pioneer Eddy County rancher Tom Middleton died this morning at Memorial Hospital after an extended illness. He was 69.
Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at the West Funeral Home with the Rev. Joe Emmanuel, pastor of the First Methodist Church, presiding. The Rev. C. E. Jamison of Hobbs will assist.
Middleton is survived by his wife, the former Pearl Cochran; two sons, Randolph and Howard; a daughter, Mrs. Kenneth Reed; four grandchildren, all of Carlsbad, four sisters, Mrs. H. H.

Morgan, of Carlsbad; and four brothers, Ross Middleton, Sonoita, Ariz., Gus Middleton of La Habra, Calif., D. J. R. Middleton of Bowie, Texas, and Lee Middleton of Los Angeles.
Born March 16, 1881, in Cherokee County, Texas, Middleton first came to Eddy County in 1898. He married Mrs. Middleton on Jan. 15, 1913.
For many a rancher in the Guadalupe Mountain area west of Carlsbad, Middleton was the last man to have a store and post office at the old town of Queen, in the mountain area. He became semi-retired in 1947.
Long a member of the Methodist Church, his home in Carlsbad was at 412 North Halagueno.
Middleton's nephews will serve as pall bearers.
