Richard Allen Nevill was a 1942 graduate of Texas A&I earning his Bachelors of Science in Natural Gas Engineering. Mr. Nevill had a long and celebrated career in engineering that included positions with Lone Star Gas, Southern Union Gas Co., Fish Engineering Service Corp, and Houston Pipe Line from which he retired as Vice President in 1985. Immediately after retiring from Houston Pipe Line he was named the Dotterweich Chair at Texas A&I University and remained in that post until 1990. He was very involved of the Kingsville community serving on the Board of Friends for the Conner Museum and as long time active member of First United Methodist Church. And I should not forget that he served our country in World War II in the Army Air Forces. He and his wife Jeanne shared a long life together and raised a family, their daughter, Lynne, and two sons, Richard and Glenn. I ask that Richard’s family join me in the presentation of a plaque commemorating his induction into the Javelina Engineering Hall of Fame.
