O'Connor Trailers with John O'Connor at the helm was established in 1999, and he was there every day until his death April 24, 2011. This family has been longtime residents of Marble Falls, moving there in 1976, when John established O'Connor Tires, then right next door, built Lube Changers plus built eleven other lube stations, ten in Texas and one in Kansas. John O'Connor was an icon in Marble Falls, serving the Little League Association as President and sponsoring a team for over 30 years, started the playing fields behind Colt Elementary School as well as help start the first girls' softball program.
Mr. John also was instrumental in the Coats for Kids project. He worked with the Lions Club, and would pay for the cleaning of the coats before they would be handed out. He also participated in the Toys for Tots program and one year bought a storage building with over 1,000 pairs of shoes. He loved kids so much that he'd be a sponsor in the Burnet County Livestock Show every year and did so from 1976 to the present. He loved watching kids grow and produce their animals every year and saw three generations go through the ring. This year, an award, The John O'Connor Sportsmanship Award will go to a deserving young person who raises steers and shows good sportsmanship. John O'Connor created a fabulous legacy for all that get to know the O'Connor family.
