Mr. P.O. Amonett of the Cone exchange and community north of Ralls, elected to the Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting of the members April 16, 1955, served continuously on the Board of Directors until he passed away July 31, 1967.

The Board of Directors, Management, and Employees of the South Plains Telephone Cooperative, Inc. express their sorrow at the passing of the P.O. Amonett, who served on the Board of Directors for over 12 years, but are pleased at having had the opportunity to have known him and to have worked with him to serve his fellow men for all these years. We appreciate and wish to thank the members of his family and his community for sharing him with us and allowing him to help make the South Plains area of Texas a better place to live for hundreds of families.

P.O. Amonett was elected to the Board of Directors at the first Annual Meeting on April 16, 1955, as a Director representing District 9, which includes the Caprock and Cone exchanges.

He served as Vice-President, Board of Directors from May 15, 1956 until May 16, 1959, and from that time on, he served as Treasurer on the Board of Directors.

There is no way to measure the good that this man has done for his fellow men, especially for those who knew him and worked with him. He was appreciated and loved by all those who knew him.

Above all, he was a servant of God, a member of the Church of Christ.

It is with sorrow and regret that we have lost such a fine man, and express our sympathy to his family and friends.
