Branon Funeral Home - Lamesa, TX Jimmy Airhart Obituary announcement - Posted by Robert Louis Martin 2016-08-06 11:25:34 Dear Mary, children, Donald, Quinton, Gayland, Glenda and Judy...and all of the Fabulous 50+,

It is so sad to hear that "the circle is (temporarily) broken." All of us from the Cougar Country will always remember the Airharts and the wonderful family you still are.
Mary, I only met you once or twice, usually at someone's funerals, but Jimmy was always so proud of you and what you had done , not only for Dawson, but for Gail ISD as well. He always had a story or two about your and his experiences.

And Donald, who can ever forget the Klondike "two man Airhart Press" that Coach Atkins put on against unsuspecting teams. It lead to a lot of easy baskets for the Cougars. And, I ran it for several years when I was in that form of insanity called Coaching. Those are great memories and I will never forget you guys.

Every time I come home from somewhere in the South (my entire family except for one daughter lives in Austin) I come to the "Airhart" barn and remind those in the car that we are in Cougar country. I have never ben able to get them to go over to Sparenberg, but we have driven by the school at Klondike a few times, and a few years ago, when the school was having some facility construction problems, I was asked to come down and help the then Superintendent with his concerns. I was able to see the pictures in the Cafeteria of the classes that were around us when we left in '53. What a great memory. and the Airharts are the biggest part of it.
I will not be able to make the services, but my prayers are with you and we will remember you all next Monday...and after. A friend forever, Robert Martin
