Kenneth Wayne Harbin


Kenneth Wayne Harbin, 60, died Saturday, July 4, 2020.

Family visitation is planned for Thursday, July 9, 2020, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Miller Family Funeral Home.

Mr. Harbin was born March 1, 1960, in Snyder to James and Neva (Thompson) Harbin.

Kenny was a correctional officer for the great state of Texas for more than 30 years, beginning his career in Angleton at the Ramsey Unit before returning home to Snyder as one of the first officers to open the Daniel Unit. He spent the rest of his career at the Daniel Unit from which he briefly retired. He then returned to service at the Daniel Unit, working visitation on the weekends. While working visitation, Kenny developed relationships with the families coming to visit their loved ones. He left a long-lasting positive impact on many of these families.

Kenny treated everyone with love and respect, regardless of their circumstances in life. The overwhelming love and support shown from families and co-workers that Kenny touched is truly a testament to his character.

Kenny always had a positive message or joke to pass along. He enjoyed seeing happiness in those around him. Often a man of few words, a joke would crack his hard exterior and you would be rewarded with his classic goofy grin. Usually he would tell a joke in return, and if you weren't careful, the exchange could go on for hours because the man was a walking joke index. Kenny loved a good joke, and he really loved a bad one.

In his personal life Kenny was an avid reader. He loved Louis Lamour and westerns in particular. He enjoyed watching movies and sharing them with his family. Kenny was as avid supporter of his second amendment rights and took great pride in collecting, building, restoring and talking about firearms.

Kenny was most proud to be a father and grandfather. He loved his children and grandchildren dearly and would readily show off pictures and videos to any and everyone who would sit still long enough for him to get his phone out.

Kenny was a loving son, brother, father and friend. Kenny leaves behind a legacy of love, respect and character for his family that will carry them through life. Kenny, a man of few words, somehow managed to impact so many people through love and the gift of laughter.

Philippians 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

He was preceded in death by his father.

Survivors include his son, Britt Boyd Harbin and wife, Kirby, of Colorado City; his daughter, BranDee Paige Huff of Abilene; four granddaughters, Brady Polich, Madalyn Polich, Scarlett McKamie and Blake Harbin, all of Colorado City; his mother; his sister, Jamie Kimzey and husband, Greg, of Hermleigh; two brothers, Robert Harbin of Magnolia and Pete Harbin of Aledo; 
and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mays Justice Villarreal


Mays Justice Villarreal, 14, died July 4, 2020, in Scurry County while surrounded by the people he loved most. 

Services will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday at East Side Church of Christ, officiated by David Miller and Craig Randolph. Visitation will be from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Bell-Cypert-Seale funeral home 

Mays and his identical twin, Miken, were born Dec. 27, 2005, in Burlington, Wis., to Martin Villarreal and Jennifer Petersen. Being twins, Mays and Miken developed a tight brotherly bond from birth. Despite having two cribs, they slept best when they were together in one crib. Their love and loyalty for one another grew with them and was strengthened during the recent quarantine as they stayed up late playing video games (Fortnite, Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto) together, with their friends and with Adam.

Their brotherly bond and loyalty spilled over onto their siblings as well. Their older sister, Jackie, tried to be their mother hen, teaching the boys responsibility and keeping them under her wing. As a result, Mays became a protector for both his family and his friends. Mays carefully guarded his little sister, Espn, just like Jackie had done for him.

A gentle giant, Mays was a peacemaker who always discouraged others from fighting and arguing. However, Mays would defend those who could not defend themselves. Mays advocated for kids who were bullied and volunteered to raise money to support the shelter for women and children. His sense of right and wrong, honor, and loyalty were unmatched.

Mays had a heart of gold and would not harm a fly. Because of his kind nature, it was only recently that Mays discovered his own strength while wrestling with his dad. Crossing from adolescence into manhood, Mays was on the journey of discovering his strength of body, mind and character. He was blessed to have many men who guided him along his path. Every other summer when birthdays cooperated, Mays played baseball with his twin brother, Miken, as well as his older brother, Aden. The boys were coached by their dads, Martin Villarreal and RJ Hernandez. A blended family affair, baseball brought everyone outside and all together to support their boys. More than just a game, baseball fostered lessons and laughter for Mays and his family.

Mays loved helping his mother, Jenny, around her house. He enjoyed spending time with his family. One of his most favorite places to be was with Jackie and Beth Evans, his great-grandparents. Recently, Mays helped his great-grandpa stain a fence and plant new grass for their lawn. He knew that working alongside Jackie meant that he was spending time with great-grandparents whom he loved fiercely and who loved him more than he would ever comprehend.

Mays spent the last few months living his best life, swimming in Midland with his siblings and his stepmom, Monica Villarreal, while growing a set of gills with Espn because they never left the pool. While in Midland, he worked alongside his brother, Aden, detailing cars and helping his dad at Classic Honda of Midland. Mays Justice Villarreal was surrounded by the people he loved while doing the things he loved.

Mays was preceded in death by his great-grandparents, IV and Mary Villarreal; grandparents, Lisa Randolph and Marianne Ranzino; and his great-grandparents, Kenneth and Louise Mayfield.

Mays is survived by his parents, Martin and Monica Villarreal of Midland and Jennifer Petersen and Adam Bluma of Snyder; his siblings, Aden Hernandez, Jackie Villarreal, Miken Villarreal and Espn Villarreal; his great-grandparents, Jackie and Beth Evans of Snyder; his grandparents, Dan and Shiela Leach of Trevor, Wis., Dave Paterson of Snyder; Lance and Amy Shook of Lubbock, Craig Randolph of Snyder, David Mayfield of Moreland, Okla. and Martin and Tracy Villarreal of Antiock, Ill.; his favorite cousin, Chase; his best friends, Eric Martinez and Hagan Gordon; and numerous cousins, aunts and uncles, all of whom he loved.
