Tex Alan Plummer, age 72 and a longtime Warsaw resident, passed away quietly on Wednesday, May 27, 2020 at 1:40 p.m. in Peabody Retirement Community, North Manchester.

Tex was the son of the late Harvey and Nancy (Glause) Plummer. He was a 1966 graduate of Larwill High School and entered into service with the United States Army on June 8, 1967. Serving in the 12th Infantry’s Fourth Division, he earned the rank of corporal before being honorably discharged on June 1, 1973.

A man of substantial height and strength, Tex was a teddy bear to most who knew him. He was kind, fun-loving and loyal. On October 13, 1994 he was married Mary Ann Rollins. Their blended family included six children who quickly came to love him for these traits; sixteen grandchildren followed all of whom Tex adored.

Professionally, he spent 23 years with INDOT as a diesel mechanic. More personally, he loved racing and NASCAR where he was always cheering for Dale Earnhardt. He liked most sports and served as both an umpire and coach for softball and baseball teams through the Leesburg Summer Recreational League. He was a longtime member of Pierceton American Legion Post 258 and of Warsaw VFW Post 1126. But his greatest memories were those spent with family.

Surviving are his children: daughters: Beth Cochran, Amanda Akers and Dawn (Leroy) Ditton – all of Warsaw; sons: Sherman (Kristina) Cochran of Warsaw and Brent (Renee) Cochran of Hebron, IN; 16 grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren and a brother, Larry (Dorothy) Plummer. Those who preceded him in passing include his wife, Mary Ann Plummer; son, Christopher Cochran; brother, Charles Plummer and his parents.

The family will celebrate Tex’s life privately on Saturday, May 30 at Titus Funeral Home. Burial will take place in Oakwood Cemetery with military honors presented by members of the American Legion and VFW. Pastor Mike Beezley of Clunette United Methodist Church will officiate the committal.

Those wishing to express their sympathy may donate to Pierceton American Legion Post 258, 104 N 1st St, Pierceton, IN 46562 or to VFW Post 1126, 1350 W Center St, Warsaw, IN 46580
