Family and friends will celebrate the life of Carl Bruce Odom at his second favorite place- Zia Park Race Track and Casino in Hobbs, N.M. on Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2018 at 2 p.m. Please wear casual clothes and be ready to lay down a max bet in his honor. At his request, ole Carl’s ashes will be spread over Las Vegas, Nev. by his family at a later date. The man. The myth. The legend was born on Nov. 10, 1953, and passed away on Sept. 20, 2018. Carl’s signature look was a pocket t-shirt, baseball cap, and out of control eyebrows. Doggedly determined, hardworking, well-known and respected in the oilfield, conservative, intelligent, sharp witted, avid Candy Crusher, serious dog lover, adoring husband, father, grandfather and so much more. Carl lived a full and vivid life for almost 65 years. He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Barbara; his son and daughter-in-law: Thomas and Katelyn; his daughter: Caitlin; and his only grandson: Archer. He leaves behind his constant and loyal companions Scout, Bear and Sheldon. He will be missed by his mother: Frances; his sister: Debbie; his brothers: Johnny, Travis, Steve, Don and their families. His family requests that you make donations to your local animal shelter, in lieu of flowers.
