Jack Charles Laurence
Jack Charles Laurence died peacefully on Friday, March 22, 2013. A gentle man with a great sense of humor, Jack was born in Fredericksburg, Texas, on July 31, 1926. He was raised on a ranch near Willow City with no electricity or running water and loved it. Jack was a true cowboy and cherished driving and working cattle with his father, Richard. In 1944, he joined the U.S. Army Air Corps, was discharged after World War II, and was promptly called back into the Air Force during the Korean War. After the military, Jack moved to San Antonio and began taking college courses at Trinity. His neighbor, Lucille, became his wife of 57 years. Jack was a surplus dealer, a purchasing agent for Dee Howard, a metal salesman, and finally the owner of Jack Laurence Corp., a 51-year-old company. . . .
