Lt. Col. Ronald Lee “Skip” Harless of Tool was born Feb. 10, 1928 in Charleston, W.Va. He died at Baylor Hospital, Dallas, on Sept. 9, 2016.
Ron moved to the Cedar Creek Lake area in 1990. He had previously spent 24 years in the U.S. Air Force, worked as a corporate pilot for the Lennox Corporation in Dallas, and partnered with area resident John Peterson in Amphibians, Inc., an aircraft dealership in Addison.
Ron was a patient and humble man. He loved to play games, from Rook and Joker to backyard football. Anything that burned fossil fuel and went fast was of interest to him, including go-carts, motorcycles and Corvettes.
Above all, he loved to fly. His proudest anniversary celebrated the date he earned his wings, Aug. 4, 1950. Skip flew P-Sls in Korea, earning the Distinguished Flying Cross in that conflict, and he later flew jets in the Vietnam War.
After he retired to the lake area, he built seven aircraft in his garage, which he flew out of GBC Airport at Harbor Point. He freely shared his joy of flying with anyone who wanted a ride in the sky, from family and neighbors to casual acquaintances such as waitresses, tow truck operators and his dentist. He was a skilled pilot, having logged over 15,000 hours in the air, including touring with a USAF aerobatics team in the South Pacific.
Ron is survived by his wife of almost 62 years, Ester “Vy” Kenyon Harless of Tool, and daughter Cindy Beck and husband Carl of Trinidad. He is also survived by his brother, Donald Harless, of Cross Lanes,W.Va, his sister, Patricia Allen, of Dallas, his daughter-in-law, Brenda Teague Kenyon of Palmer, his two grandsons, Jason Teague of Allen, and Zachary Kenyon of Ft. Riley, Kan. and by six great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by both of his parents, Ronald Harless, Sr. and Margaret Bowling of Charleston, W.Va. and also by his son Steven Kenyon, of Palmer.
Funeral services were held Sept. 14, 2016 at the Metrocrest Funeral Home in Carrollton. Entombment followed at the Hilltop Memorial Park Cemetery. Donations in Ron’s memory may be made to the Disabled American Veterans of America or to Wounded Warriors.

Publish Sunday, Sept. 18 only.

Hannah Elizabeth Costlow, 6 months old, passed peacefully from the arms of her earthly parents and into the arms of her heavenly Father on Sept. 8, 2016, following a courageous battle with SMA Type 1. From her birth on March 10, 2016 until her last day, her precious life was spent surrounded by family and loved ones, who were touched in a great way throughout her short, yet very memorable time on earth. The around-the-clock care provided by her mother, father and grandmother kept Hannah’s 183-day life free from pain and full of love.
Hannah lived a very happy life. Her sweet disposition, beautiful smile and bright eyes melted the hearts of those around her. She was affectionately known as “The Munchkin” by her parents.
Each day with Hannah was a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories. She loved watching her nursery rhyme videos (with British accents), reading her farm book, playing with her balloons and bath time!
Hannah is survived by her loving parents, Jordan and Zach Costlow of Fort Worth, maternal grandparents Tammye and Dr. Russell Marshall of Mabank, paternal grandparents Julie and Paul Costlow of Gun Barrel City, uncles Griffin, Landon, and Alden Marshall and Cody Costlow; aunt Payton Costlow, maternal great-grandparents Claudia and Ben Goolsby of Timpson, paternal great-grandmother Sue Gafford of Terrell, and paternal great-grandfather Clint Costlow, Jr. of Mesquite.
She is preceded in death by her maternal great-grandparents, Vivian and Rayburn Marshall, and paternal great-grandfather Donald Gafford and paternal great-grandmother Billie Costlow.
A “Celebration of Life” will be held at 1 p.m., Sept. 24, 2016, at Cornerstone Baptist Church (7955 N. Beach Street Fort Worth, TX 76137). Those attending are asked to wear their “Hannah shirt” or bright colors.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Hannah’s name by check to Cure SMA, 925 Busse Rd, Elk Grove Village, IL 60007 or through the Cure SMA website www.curesma.org.
