Rodger Clint Elston
June 16, 1939—December 8, 2016

Rodger Clint Elston, 77, of Lingleville, passed away Thursday, December 8, 2016 in Stephenville.

Rodger was born on June 16, 1939 in Gorman, Texas to the late Ralph Jones and Aline Huffman Elston. He married the love of his life, Melba JoAnn Gryder on June 14, 1958 and they spent more than 58 years together. Roger was a class of 1957 graduate from Lingleville High School. He was a member of Calvary Baptist Church and resided in Erath County most of his life. Roger worked in manufacturing, carpentry, as an oiler on a crane building on Lake Proctor, at local cattle auctions, Texas Southwestern Cattle Raiser’s Association as a brand inspector, as a Texas Animal Health Inspector, and for the US postal Service as a rural mail carrier. His main love, however, was ranching on the back of his horse looking at his cattle. He was the last of the old time cowboys.
