James Warren Tysor went to live with his Lord on Sunday, February 16, 2020. Jim was born September 30, 1927 in Dallas Texas to Homer James (Jim) and Velda (Ware) Tysor. He mainly grew up in Dallas Texas where he attended a few years of high school. In the summer, they would also visit his dad’s family in Riverton Iowa where his grandfather owned a farm. While in high school in Dallas, his dad joined the navy. Jim’s family then moved to where his dad was stationed which included Iowa City, Iowa, and then to Carmel and Livermore, California. While in California, he was in the Sea Scouts and graduated from Livermore High School. While in High School, he had a very short attempt at playing the clarinet with the marching band. After graduation, his dad stayed in California to finish out his enlistment while he, his mother and brother moved back to Dallas. There Jim attended the University of Texas where he majored in Petroleum Engineering. While in college, he joined a square dance club where he met Frances Woolverton. He didn’t think he stood a chance with her and “unproposed” by asking “You don’t want to marry me, do you?”. They were married on September 3, 1949. After college, he started work for Magnolia Oil Company, which later became Mobil Oil. This job moved him around from Kansas, Texas, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Colorado. His activities included being a member of the Optimist Club in Denver, working with high school students through Junior Achievement in Okla. City, and the Petroleum Club in Texas. He also enjoyed continuing square dancing, playing bridge and 42. Jim is preceded in death by his wife, Fran Tysor, his parents, Velda and Jim Tysor, and his brother Chan Tysor. He is survived by his daughter Linda Nowlin (Larry), sons Art Tysor (Jan) and Chuck Tysor (Janice); grandchildren Kevin Nowlin (Venessa), Shawn Nowlin (Martha), Jen Shipman, Chris Tysor (Shauna), and Ashley Tysor. Great grandchildren include Megan, Connor, Elizabeth and Spencer Nowlin, and Lilly, Olivia and Carter Tysor. Services will be pending at a later date. He will be laid to rest at the family gravesite in Oakwood Cemetery in Austin TX.
