Tom Hallford

March 19, 1944 — June 21, 2015

BRADSHAW: Tommy Alvis Hallford, 71, passed away at his home with his daughters at his side. A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, June 24, 2015 at 11:00 am in the Buffalo Gap Cemetery, Amy Wilson Feltz officiating, directed by Fry~Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola. A visitation for Tom will be held on Tuesday, June 23, at the funeral home from 5 to 7 in the evening.

Tom was born in Abilene to Tommy and Tiny (Stockton) Hallford on March 19, 1944. He attended Wylie schools where he graduated and then married Dolores Bull. They had two daughters, Barbara and Janice.

Tom followed in the family business of auto body repair, becoming owner of M&M Auto Works in Abilene. When he retired from auto repair, he moved to Bradshaw and lived on the family farm.

Growing up, he loved to hunt and fish with his brother Dennis. The family vacation was always taken to Corpus Christi to visit extended family and for Tom to fish in the Gulf. The yearly vacation was just one of the highlights for Tom. The other was the yearly gathering of the “cousins” where the stories of past adventures grew with time, and new adventures were planned.

Tom’s one hobby that he enjoyed for all of his life was gardening. He enjoyed all aspects of gardening, but most of all he enjoyed sitting in his garden watching his plants grow.

He is survived by his two daughters, Barbara Owens and husband Tony of Abilene, and Janice Lampe and husband Craig of Lubbock; brother, Dennis Hallford and wife Marilyn of Las Cruces, NM; four grandchildren and one great grandchild, and many cousins.

His parents preceded him in death.

In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice of the Big Country, 4601 Hartford St, Abilene, TX 79605.
