Murry Millard “MM” Pogue, 91, of Lytton Springs passed away on Nov. 22, 2007.
He was preceded in death by his parents: Thomas Levi Pogue and Earle Beatrice Bowen Pogue; sister Fay Warren of California; and brothers, Darell and Louis of Austin. MM Pogue was born in Red Rock, Texas on Dec. 22, 1915.

After his marriage to Marie in 1942, and after the kids came along, he had to follow the work, wherever it was available, from the shores of the Texas Coast to Wyoming. He was a member of the Ironworkers Local 482, by trade, for most of his life.
In 1968, he took a job as the foreman of Meadowbrook Farm, Kaufman County, for H. H. Cauffied. When he retired in 1982, he relocated to Lytton Springs.
He loved his family, coon hunting as a younger man, reading western novels and most of all a good game of dominoes.

  1. As I am reading this tonight I miss my Dad, Murry Pogue more than ever. I didn’t get to see him his last years here on earth..It hurt so badly too because I wanted to see him,hug him, and talk to him but I was not allowed to go where he was staying.. I really wish things could have been different because I can only hope he knew how much I loved him and miss him terribly. I will get to see him again one day as I follow him and my Mother,Marie Pogue into our ertinal home, Heaven. Love you so much Daddy, and miss you so much. Your daughter, Geraldine
