ORANGE GROVE - Allen Anthony Migura of Orange Grove, TX passed away on Monday, December 31, 2012 at the age of 71.
He was born July, 2, 1941 in Orange Grove to Daniel and Lillian (Wostal) Migura.
He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Catherine (Bednorz) Migura; two daughters, Cynthia (Migura) Schroeder and husband Todd of Pearland, TX and Kim (Migura) Gallagher and husband, Owen of Orange Grove; six grandchildren, Steven Schroeder, Garrett Gallagher, Galen Gallagher, Karen Gallagher, Glen Gallagher and Klara Gallagher; two brothers Peter and Doris Migura and Joe and Cristi Migura both of Orange Grove and sister, Shirley and Gary Lambert of Caldwell, TX.
Born and raised into farming and ranching, Allen worked with his dad for 10 years farming before being employed by Exxon Pipeline Company as an electrician/mechanic in Corpus Christi, TX. His territory spanned the King Ranch and South Texas production areas. Allen retired with 33 years of service from ExxonMobil Pipeline Company in 2005.
Throughout his life, Allen actively supported his home parish of St. John of the Cross Catholic Church in Orange Grove. Allen was one of the first Eucharistic ministers at St. John of the Cross Church to be chosen by Reverend Seamus McGowan and commissioned by Bishop Drury of the Diocese of Corpus Christi in 1980. He served his parish in this capacity for over 30 years. He also loved to sing at mass each Sunday with his family in the church choir. Allen served as Vice President of the St. John of the Cross Catholic Cemetery Association and was former President of St. John of the Cross Catholic Life Insurance local chapter.
Allen also served the community of Orange Grove as a volunteer fireman and as a Charter Member of the Orange Grove Young Farmer's Association.
After retiring, Allen thoroughly enjoyed the great outdoors and loved fishing with his family. He returned to his farming roots by helping the "Gwosdz Boys" in their farming operation and looked forward each week to spending time with the "Saturday Morning Herschap Group". He loved watching the Dallas Cowboys no matter whether they won or lost. He was an awesome home builder and could fix just about anything. Above all, Allen's greatest love was being with his family and taking an active role in his grandchildren's lives and activities.
