MCLENNAN COUNTY (March 18, 2014) Tom Rountree, 88, of Eddy died Monday night after falling from his tractor on Joy Lynn Drive, his daughter-in-law confirmed Tuesday.

He appeared to have hit his head in the fall and family members think that may have caused his death.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy wasn’t ordered.

He and his wife moved to the area from Big Spring to be near their sons, she said.
