Survivors include one daughter, Laurie Odom and her husband, Todd, of Snyder; four grandchildren, Jessica McMullen and her husband, Colby, of Midland and Kell Odom, Jada Odom and Jake Odom, all of Snyder; one sister-in-law, Linda Farnum and her husband, Phil, of Kentucky; two nephews, Raf Viniard and his wife, Pam, of Montana and Shannon Viniard and his wife, Linnea, of Kentucky; and one niece, Lynn Reed of Fort Worth.
