Survived by wife, Linda; son, Mark; step-children, Kelly (Eric) Miller and Matthew Kern; grandchildren, Lauren, Evan, Andrew and Joshua Miller; nephews, extended family and friends at OPH. Tex was loved by family and friends for being spontaneous and fun-loving, as well as having a generous, hardworking and determined spirit.

His favorite times were trips to the family cabin, Door County, OPH, Friday fireside men's group and spending time with family.
