Tommy Enox

Tommy Enox, 86, of Anton, was received into God’s Heavenly presence Sunday, June 27, 2021.
He was born March 17, 1935, to Willie Thomas Enox and Arwilda Ludia Hodges Enox on a farm in Posey, Texas.
He was raised in Slaton and graduated High School in 1955.
Later that year, he joined the Air Force, but returned home to attend Lubbock Christian College, Draughan College and Rawls Business College.
He began a long profession of automotive repair services, working for John Richey Automotive, Melcher Chevrolet, Walden Automotive and serving the community of Littlefield at Tommy Enox Auto Service and Enox Brake & Alignment for more than 15 years.
Tommy’s work equally matched his servantship, treating everyone with truthful and honest assessments and repair. Whoever he came in contact with, left with a new friend and neighbor.
He married the love of his life, Odessia ‘Sweet’ Kesey in February of 1964. He stood beside her until his death, culminating 57 years of marriage under the light of Christ.
The largest of God’s blessings came in January of 1965, with the birth of their only child, a daughter, Tammy Enox.
He faithfully attended the First United Methodist Church in Anton.
He read the bible every morning and enjoyed country gospel music radio and TV shows throughout his life.
He loved his son-in-law, Mike Garrett; his grandsons: Dustin and wife, Kristi, and Taylon and wife, Shelby, with every ounce of his being.
He attended Dustin’s concerts at the Cactus Theater tirelessly and cheered on Taylon in the stands at every football game and powerlifting meet.
He didn’t think his life could be enriched further, until his great-grandchildren were born. He was a proud great-grandfather of Stevie, Julia, Lennon and Oaklynn.
As stated in Joshua 22:5, Tommy was a great man and served the Lord with obedience and the kindest of hearts. He will forever be remembered as a Christian, a trusted friend, and a neighbor to all.
Tommy was preceded in death by his parents, Willie and Arwilda Enox; a brother, Alvis Enox; and his grandmother, Annie Jewel Hodges.
He is survived by his wife, Odessia ‘Sweet’ Enox of Anton; daughter, Tammy and husband, Mike Garrett of Lubbock; grandsons: Dustin Garrett and wife, Kristi, of Lubbock and Taylon Garrett and wife, Shelby, of Levelland and the lights of his life, his four great-grandchildren: Stevie, Julia, Lennon and Oaklynn.
He is also survived by one brother, William and wife, Mary Lou Enox of Denison, Texas; sister-in-law, Doll Synatschk of Anton; his uncle and aunt, Ralph and Louis Marie Hodges of Lubbock; numerous nieces and nephews; and a host of friends.
Services to celebrate the life Tommy lived will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 30, at the First United Methodist Church in Anton, with Pastor Jeff Fisher officiating.
Interment will follow in the Anton Cemetery.
