Truman Chandler

Truman was born September 4, 1917 in Poolville to Scobe and Ellie Chandler, and was a graduate of Peaster High School. He was a veteran of World War II having served as a ground crewman in the Army Air Force and received an Honorable Discharge in 1946. Truman worked for Williamson-Dickey after the war before joining his dad as co-owner of a grocery store on the Ft. Worth Hwy. from 1050 to 1957. He built and operated his own miniature golf course at night during the summers for many years while working as a salesman for Darby Wholesale. In his latter years he became an employee of Wes-Tex Vending Co. from which he retired in 1982. He was a longtime member of the South Main Church of Christ and was very active for many years in the Weatherford area playing in music groups at the Chamber of Commerce, Peach Festival, and Senior Citizen homes. He played for benefits, anniversaries, Parker County's 100th birthday party and the opening of the K.O.R.C. radio station in the Parker Hotel.

Truman was preceded in death by his first wife of 55 years, Alma Williams Chandler, his second wife of 12 years, Mildred Cotton Chandler, his parents, Scobe and Ellie Chandler, his brother Earnest Chandler, and his sister Dortha Swafford.
