Chris Odom (Block Creek Ranch)
1949 - 2006

By Pam Malcuit

James Christie "Chris" Odom, Jr., was born on January 27, 1949, in Shreveport, Louisiana, and he grew up in Nacogdoches, Texas. A graduate of Stephen F. Austin College in Nacogdoches, he spent many years in the oil industry in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 1985, he moved to Navasota, Texas, and had several construction companies. In 1997, he helped establish Block Creek Ranch in Comfort, Texas. He moved to Comfort full-time in 2000, to run the cattle operation on Block Creek Ranch. He is survived by his mother, Marilyn Odom, one sister Diane Pollock, and his long time companion, Dr. Mickey Bush.

Always the consummate gentleman, Chris leaves a huge hole in our hearts as well as in our organization. Starting with buying a few cows for Mickey, he soon became deeply involved in working first within his region and then later with the national association to promote his beloved Dexters. His enthusiasm and the zeal with which he approached his various projects dealing with the ADCA were very infectious. He worked tirelessly to raise funds to support our youth programs and was in his glory while making it happen. His duties as ADCA Vice-President were a good pleasure for him to perform - and he performed them tirelessly, politely and with unending good humor. Chris passed away while serving as Vice-President for the ADCA.

To say he will be missed just does not begin to describe it. Our deepest sympathy goes to his family and especially to Mickey.
