ODESSA - Audie Hollowell passed away on April 12, 2017 in Odessa, Texas at the age of 60. Audie is survived by his loving wife Jean Hollowell, mother-in-law Joan Mayberry, children Tamara Cook and husband Brian Cook and brother Bruce Cook, Shelby Griffith and husband Tyrone Griffith, and Rebecca Mayberry-Deason. Audie is also survived by three grandchildren, Sterling and Tristan Cook and Tyler Griffith, sister- in- law Rita Menges and husband David Menges and many cousins, nephews and nieces. Audie was born on January 05, 1957 in Sweetwater, Texas to Leafy Sue McClure and Joe L. Hollowell. He was a proud veteran, serving his country in the U.S. Navy in the mid-1970s. He graduated from Odessa College with an Associate Degree in Advanced Masters Welding and Building Trades. He married Jean Mayberry, his high school sweetheart 40 years ago on April 5, 1977. Audie was a kind, gentle, and passionate husband, father, grandfather, and friend who encouraged both family and friends to pursue their goals. Audie was a generous, witty, and strong man who never hesitated to help others. In his spare time, he enjoyed messing with people's heads, time with his grandchildren, hunting, fishing, and his favorite Red truck. Audie had a loud voice that could be heard for miles and an even louder laugh. He had a wonderful sense of humor even if it was at times a little crazy. He loved to camp, travel, and be outdoors. Audie was preceded in death by his parents Leafy Sue McClure and Joe L. Hollowell, father-in-law David Mayberry, sister-in-law Susan Mayberry and maternal and paternal grandparents. A memorial service with military honors is scheduled for Saturday, April 15, 2017 at 1:30 pm at Acres West Funeral Chapel. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Audie's life.
