    Archie was a great supervisor at the old Complex in the Beaumont Refinery. He helped many young engineers who had any work on the Hydrocracker. My condolences to the family.

    Jan, Susie, Scott and Family, words cannot express how broken hearted I am over the passing of Mr. Archie. The McCauley's were a hugh part of my life growing up and once all of us kids left, Miss Jane and Mr. Archie were there keeping my elderly parents company. Mr. Archie was a hugh factor in my Daddy's later life and for that I am eternally gratefull. I have wonderfull memories growing up next door and will cherish them always. I am so thankful I got to sit down and chat with Mr. Archie and Jan the last time I was in Beaumont. I loved you Mr. Archie and Miss Jane with all my heart.....may you both rest in peace now.
