Son of Ervin and Ricee (Cook) Alexander
Mr. L.M. Alexander was born on August 27, 1931, and went home to be with the Lord on January 6 at Houston Hospice surrounded by his loving family.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Ervin Alexander and Ricee Cook Alexander.
Mr. Alexander is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Lavera Hurd Alexander of Eagle Lake; their marital union produced three loving daughters, Leveral A. Montgomery and husband, James, of Missouri City; Sharon A. Higgins and husband, Gregory and Carol L. Bluntson, both of Houston; a loving step-mother, Julia Alexander of Los Angeles, California. Additionally his legacy continues with his four grandchildren, Cornelius Alexander of Missouri City, Terris Alexander and Samantha Bluntson of Houston, and Alexis Hence of Atlanta, Georgia; two great-grandchildren, Tranessa and Terris Alexander II. Also left to cherish his memory is one brother, James Alexander and wife, Sallie of Dallas; one sister, Nettie Stevenson and husband, Leon of Los Angeles, California; and a host of other relatives and dear friends.
L. M. professed Christ at an early age and was baptized by the late Rev. Gardner uniting with the White Cloud Baptist Church where he was a dedicated and devoted member serving faithfully as deacon and church treasurer.
He attended E. H. Henry School and furthered his education in Welding Mechanics, where he received his certification.
As a retiree of B&B Gravel Co., L.M. enjoyed his retirement years as a local small businessman serving Eagle Lake and its surrounding communities.
L.M. was a soft-spoken gentleman who performed deeds for others that were both great and small, yet never asking in return. He is a jewel that will be enormously missed and will always be treasured in our hearts.
Funeral services and entombment were held Saturday, January 12 at noon from White Cloud Baptist Church. Geo. H. Lewis & Sons was in charge of arrangements.
Casket bearers were Lloyd Middleton, Preston Hemphill, Leo Cordova, John Lee Tillman, Norman Henderson and Gary Henderson.
Honorary pallbearers were Cornelius O. Alexander, James Montgomery, Terris Alexander, Jr., Terris Alexander, Sr., Gregory Higgins and Ellis Hurd.
"Always protect your name and reputation." – L.M. Alexander
