I'm sorry to hear about "Tex's" passing away. When Dad started on the BELLE in 1982, "Tex" was pretty much the weekend day fireman. Dad always rested comfortably when "Tex" was firing. He knew how to hold steam, and wouldn't let the boat get into any trouble.

My sympathy goes to "Tex's" family and friends. I'll drink a cold Falls City toast to him.
