For the next 44 years, they owned and operated numerous businesses from Long Beach, CA, to Hemet. All of his business ventures were new and challenging, and he was never afraid to try, and always achieved.

He and Edith settled in Hemet in 1970, building homes and apartments, finally retiring 15 years ago to enjoy the friendships he so much enjoyed, as well as time with his family and grandchildren.

He was born August 2, 1906, in Hilham.

The Sullivan family and friends are extremely blessed to have had him in their lives for as long as they did. His example of how life is lived has been a lifelong impression on his children and grandchildren.

The love, devotion, caring, and sharing of time and experiences will have a lasting impression on those who knew him. Knowing that Tex never met a stranger, the family is positive that his Lord and God will enjoy his everlasting company as his family has during this lifetime.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Friends of the Valley Wide Foundation, Western Center for Paleontology, P.O. Box 907, San Jacinto, CA 92581.
