Tom Mixon blessed the lives of all who knew him. He embraced God with his whole being as he saw everything through the eyes of Jesus. He carried in him the light of God's glory, believing everyone worthy of the Kingdom of Heaven. After an encounter with his unconditional, legendary hugs, everyone stood a little taller, loved a little deeper, and forgave a little quicker.
Tom is survived by his wife Darrelynn; two sons, Tom Jr. and Danny; three grandsons, Hunter, Tyler, and Randy; and daughter-in-law, Bea Mixon. He proudly served his country as a paratrooper and retired from Exxon, traveling all over the world, even putting out the fires in the Middle East with Red Adair.
Tom was birthed into Heaven on July 14 2018, so the family is having a Birthday Party. Please join Darrelyn to honor the life of her best friend, husband, and soul mate Tom Mixon and to rejoice in his eternal life in the Kingdom of the Lord. Please come casual because he loved come as you are. You will have the opportunity to share your favorite memory.
Party is at 3 p.m. on July 29 at 634 Cherry Hills Elkins Lake in Huntsville. There will be a second celebration near the hill country for food and sharing on July 30 at 6 p.m. at the Double Eagle Ranch, 6142 East 1431 (where Tom and Darrelynn were married).
Please no flowers. Donations may be made to the Ark of Huntsville Church where Tom served as greeter, as people stood in line waiting on their hugs.
Tom’s body was donated to Texas A&M School of Medicine.
