He married Anna Jean Walthall on March 14, 1959. TL retired from Texas Department of Highways & Public Transportation in 1990. He was a member of WAC Baptist Mens Disaster Unit. TL was a blood donor, donating over 20 gallons. He never hesitated or flinched, going whenever asked. TL was an avid bike rider. He rode in many area bike rides, even riding Hotter than Hell rides. It was not unusual for TL to win first for his age bracket. He finally retired his riding at age 70.
