JOE WOODS Class of 1960

24 Jun 1942 Hanford, CA
1 Mar 2017 Lockhart

William Joseph Woods, known to all as Joe, passed unexpectedly on March 1, 2017 in his home in Lockhart Texas. Joe was born June 24, 1942, in Hanford, Calif., to William H. and Mildred W. Woods. Joe was raised in a military family and moved frequently during his earlier years. Joe’s family settled in Lockhart in the early 1950s. Joe graduated from Lockhart High School in 1960 and attended Southwest Texas State College in San Marcos for several years. Joe served in the Army National Guard for three years and received an honorable discharge.

Joe had three loves: God, family, and music. He was a devout Christian and spent many hours studying the Bible and praying.

Joe was a talented musician and a member of the popular rock and country band, “The Velvets.” He sang and played lead and rhythm guitar and toured with The Velvets from 1966 through 1980. After retiring from The Velvets, Joe worked for a number of companies, primarily in sales.

Joe is survived by daughter Rebecca Welch and her children Calvin, Anna, and Kaylinn, and daughter Deborah Dennis and her children, Grant and Ruth. He is also survived by his beloved sister Sharon “Missy” Garrison, her husband, Mike, and nephew Michael and his wife, Christine, and niece, Tracy Mund.

Services will be held at Eeds Funeral Home Chapel on March 11, at 11 a.m. with Rev. Gary Rodgers officiating. Joe’s remains will be interred in the family plot at the Lockhart City Cemetery. There will be a luncheon following interment where friends can share their memories of Joe.

DAVID OHLENDORF Class of 1960

1942 Rogers Ranch (Mendoza), Texas
January 8, 2017 Lockhart, Texas

David Albert Ohlendorf, treasured husband, father and “Popo” passed away on January 8th, 2017, surrounded by family at his home right outside Lockhart, Texas. David was 74 years old, born in 1942 on his family’s farm at Rogers Ranch near Mendoza.

David graduated in 1960 from Lockhart High School and briefly continued his studies at Texas A&M. After spending one year in Aggieland, he returned to the work world and then finally settled on Southwest Texas State University, where he earned a degree in Agriculture. He met Carol Benkendorfer, the woman who would later become his wife, in the college library. To this day it remains a mystery as to why he would have actually entered the library, but nonetheless, David and Carol were married for over 50 happy years. David was deeply connected to the Lockhart area and they made their home here. He had many work opportunities including Central Soya, Conso Products, Kewaunee Scientific and finally the Golden Age Home. David and Carol started their family in 1973 and briefly moved to El Paso where David helped to start a Conso plant in Juarez, Mexico. David had many opportunities to focus on his career, but instead chose to focus on his family. His desire to be an outstanding son, husband and father drove him back to Lockhart. When he returned, David and Carol purchased their forever homestead property, later lovingly named the Shakey Bridge Farm and the place where innumerable memories were made.

David was an amazing example of tenacity and dogged determination, leading to his nickname of “Miracle Man”. Beginning in 1986, David had a series of very serious medical issues. However, he took great pride in his ability to beat the odds and persevere beyond any normal human being. We are so incredibly grateful for this God-given gift, as David was able to truly enjoy and appreciate the value of life itself.

David is preceded in death by his parents, Werner and Emma Ohlendorf and his brother Edgar. David is survived by his wife who he lovingly referred to as “Boss”, Carol Benkendorfer Ohlendorf of Lockhart; daughter Christine Ohlendorf of Lockhart; daughter Dawn Ohlendorf Webb, son-in-law Jarrod Webb, grandsons Austin and Dillon Webb of Addison; daughter Julie Ohlendorf of Lockhart; brother George Ohlendorf and wife Dorothy of Georgetown; Harry Ohlendorf and wife Barbara of Davis, CA; sister-in-law Kaye Annas Ohlendorf of Houston; as well as a large and loving extended family. We would also like to recognize the many friends that David accumulated along his journey of life.

A Celebration of Life service has been scheduled for 2:00 pm on Sunday, January 15th at the First Lockhart Baptist Church. A reception will follow in the Fellowship Hall as we remember David and the continuous blessing that he was to our family and community.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the organization of your choice. However, David believed strongly in the invaluable life skills and values that were developed through the 4-H program. One of his greatest joys (and pains) was working with his daughters in raising animals for the Caldwell Country Jr. Livestock Show (Caldwell County Fair Association, PO Box 1046, Lockhart, TX 78644).

The Ohlendorf Family would like to thank David’s Care Team at the Austin Heart Hospital where he always had a great affinity for all of the staff – Dr. Kunjan Bhatt, Laura Calais, and Dr. Paul Coffeen. David always felt this fantastic team connected with him on a personal level, and their skill allowed him many more days and years of precious life. This team made extraordinary efforts to ensure that David was able to return to his beloved home during his final days. The family would also like to thank the Lockhart EMS, whose incredible efforts saved his life both in 1986 and 2002.

David’s unwavering and unconditional love for his family, friends and community are a testament to God’s love for us all. It is through the example of David’s love that our family is able to understand our Heavenly Father’s love for all of us.

Harlan Roberts

On Wednesday, November 24, 2010, Harlan E. Roberts, Sr. passed into Heaven to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His life was one of love for his family and friends, honor, integrity and joy. His life was a gift to us all as he was truly a Man of La Mancha who fought for the "right" without question or cause and he marched into hell for a heavenly cause.

We love him and will miss him terribly. Harlan is survived by his loving wife Elizabeth Roberts, his wonderful children Robin Roberts, Regina Venegas, Harlan E.

Our Harlan hailed from Lockhart, Texas and after a stellar high school career where he graduated with honors, he attended Texas A&M University in College Station and was a member of Company B-1 where he excelled in academic studies as Distinguished Student 6 semesters while proving himself a leader as Third Brigade Commander, Member of the Ross Volunteers, the Corp of Cadets Staff, and President of the Student Body. He graduated in 1964 as a Distinguished Military Graduate With Honors.

Harlan entered the United States Army and earned his wings as a member of the 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles and is a Viet Nam Veteran. During his service to his country he earned and was awarded the Army Commendation Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, and the Bronze Star with V Device (for Valor in Combat).

Upon his retirement from military service, Harlan spent 40 years as a builder, developer, and land-planner. He began his career in residential building construction and sales management in Houston, Texas in 1970. In 1971, Harlan and two partners established and grew the largest Red Carpet residential real estate franchise in the State of Texas. Upon selling his portion of the company in 1976, he moved to Austin to take a management position with Bill Milburn Homes. Harlan continued the management and consultation of major, national building companies through his company Builder's Marketing Group until 1995. At that time he began a second career as a residential land developer and consultant and relocated to New Braunfels, Texas. That career move led to participation in developing 28 subdivisions across the Southwest U.S.

Over the course of his professional career, Harlan's desire to give back to his community prompted him to serve on numerous Boards of Directors throughout Texas. Upon moving to Aransas Pass, Harlan volunteered his time and expertise to helping the City of Aransas Pass and San Patricio County. He served on the Aransas Pass Planning and Zoning Committee, the Board of Directors for the San Patricio County Water Municipal District, San Patricio County Economic Development Corporation, and the Aransas Pass Municipal Development District. As a volunteer, labor of love for Aransas Pass, Harlan was the motivator and force behind the building and completion of the new $5,000,000 million dollar Aransas Pass Civic Center devoting an entire two years of his life to the project.

Harlan will live on in our hearts and memories and never be forgotten. Visitation will be held on Saturday, November 27, 2010, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. with the family present from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Charlie Marshall Funeral Home Chapel in Aransas Pass.

Peck touched the lives of everyone that he met. Whether it was a total stranger or a lifelong friend, he always left a smile on their face. For anyone wanting to know what was truly going on in Lockhart, Peck was the man to go to. He gave much more than he could have ever received, his kindness and generosity will be truly missed. His warm smile, and huge heart meant so much to the citizens of Lockhart. Peck loved playing with his two grandchildren, Kolbe and Keegan and was known to them not as Bubba, but as "Tootie." If wealth were to be measured in friends, Bubba would be a very rich man many times over. Peck will forever be remembered as the man who gave everything and asked for nothing in return.
