Arthur Weldon Ware, 87 of Kerrville, TX, went home to be with the Lord Aug. 21, 2013.
Weldon was the husband of Louise Ware for 68 years. They married on November 17, 1944 in Chula Vista, CA prior to Weldon leaving for active duty with the Navy during WWII. Their son, Michael Arthur Ware was born to them on December 26, 1946.
Following the war, they moved back to their native Texas where they both worked in the family bakery business for many years until leaving the last bakery, Shell Pastry, in Corpus Christi, TX, to pursue their education in teaching.
They both then completed their masters’ degrees in Education in Corpus Christi, TX and Weldon taught his favorite hobby and past-time, wood-working, with the Corpus Christi ISD for 24 years.
Upon their retirement from teaching, Louise and Weldon moved to Leakey, Texas in 1986 where he built his “dream shop” and continued wood-working leaving us with many home-made articles to cherish. He and Louise also enjoyed traveling, hunting, and visits from their family. In recent years they moved to Kerrville, TX for ease of care with their health.
All who knew Weldon know of his penchant for recalling family historical events. His passing brings the end of an era of endless stories told many times over with his family sitting around him listening and asking questions. He will be missed.
