Howard Gardner American Legion Post 85 was proud to sponsor Everett Toudouze, of Palestine High School, for the 2020 Texas Boys State. We have extended an invitation for Everett and his parents to speak at our Post once in-person meetings resume. Many thanks go out to the American Legion Texas Boys State Committee for being able to make this happen. 659 Texas students got to be a part of history, while Boys State was canceled entirely in most states.
My auction Mentor and great friend. Obituary for Carl "Ed" Jones Carl “Ed” Jones, age 77, of Wyandotte, OK passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, May 26, 2020. Ed was born on April 27, 1943 to Carl and Dorothy (Kitts) Jones in Stella, MO. He grew up in Joplin and graduated from Joplin High School in 1961. After graduation Ed attended community college. On April 22, 1965, Ed married the love of his life, Kathleen Roberts in Joplin, MO. Ed began working as a Brakeman for the Missouri Pacific Railroad, later advancing into Management. He was then transferred throughout the U.S. and retired after 25 years. Ed was a multitalented man, employeed as an Auctioneer in Texas and most recently as a Realtor for Remax Grand Lake, for the last 20 years. Spending time on his 40 acre farm, mowing, tending to the animals and being outdoors are some of the activities that Ed enjoyed. What brought him the most joy, was making people laugh and bringing smiles to faces. He was a jovial, larger than life man that never met a stranger. His clever, quick wit and great sense of humor will be dearly missed! Ed was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Rick Jones. Left to carry on his legacy, wife, Kathleen Jones, son, Mardy Jones (Audrey) of Little Rock, AR, daughter, Kelley Jones of Nairobi, Kenya, sister, Tena Jones of Vinita, OK, brother Thad Jones (Julie) of Ft Lauderdale, FL, grandchildren Mardis Jones and Jesse Jones & special friend, Jennifer Landers and many nieces and nephews.
