Claude Patrick Germany Jr. of Burleson, Texas

April 12, 1923-June 30. 2019
Claude P. Germany, Jr., age 96, lived in the area surrounding Burleson for most of his life. He went home to his Lord Sunday, June 30, 2019. Born April 12, 1923 in Parker, Texas, he was the son of the late Claude Patrick Germany and Mary Cecil Taylor Germany. Claude is predeceased by his sister Winniemae Germany Moore of Cleburne. He married Lucille Richeson Wicker on September 03, 1983. He was a Veteran of World War II and served with the U.S. Army in both North Africa and Italy. He had retired from Vaught Aircraft in 1993. During Claude’s working-years following his retirement from Vaught, he was a successful homebuilder and realtor in Tarrant and Johnson Counties. Claude became a Master Mason in 1952 as a member of Tarrant Lodge #942. At the time of his passing, he was soon to receive a 70 year award for his tenure in the Craft. During his almost 70 years of service, he became very well known to Masons across Texas. He is a Past Master of Burleson Lodge #649. It was during this time that his skills of leadership, easy-going good manner and quick grasp of the work of the Craft was realized. He became an At Large Instructor for the Grand Lodge of the State of Texas A. F. & A. M. During those many years he traveled with some of his best friends who were also Masons and Instructors as far away as Abilene and then back to Greenville Texas. If you ever met a Mason between those cities and mentioned Claude Germany’s name, you always got a smile and pleasant comment about him. Claude received the high honor by being appointed as The Grand Senior Steward of The Grand Lodge of Texas. He was the oldest Master Mason at age 92 to have ever held that office. He was a member of several Masonic Lodges at the time of his death.

Oh, my dearest Claude, how I will miss you. You were the best uncle ever. You named me, and you brightened up the life of this little country girl so much. You and Opal bought me my first and only "poodle" skirt in 1952 for Christmas. You always made sure we had board games to play for Christmas too. I remember the circular track that you and Wayne and Dennis tramped out and smoothed down for your model planes out in our pasture. You gave us so much fun. I remember the movie camera and your little red convertible. I will miss having coffee with you when you came to see me here in Cleburne. Thank you for sending money to Mama and for loving her. She loved her little brother so much. I love you, and I will see you in Heaven before very long. Judy
