Laury Cover was born to Rosabelle (Smith) and John Steele Cover on New Years Day, 1942 in San Antonio Tx. He was raised on a dairy farm and worked hard in his youth at the farm, as well as at school, where he graduated on the Honor Roll. He went to college for a short time, until he decided a job was more lucrative. He would rather work with his hands. He was married and had 3 children, Rob, Alan, and Julie. After a bitter divorce he moved to Washington State with his new wife, Jeri to start a new life with her 2 children, Beverly and Mike. He owned a trailer business for a while and raced Nascar NW Tour for several years, doing quite well for a self sponsored team. He and Jeri and William moved back to Texas in 1998 and lived on a farm in the Shiner area, where they raised cows and worked on tractors.
