Obituary*21 Jun 2016 Richard Allan Culpepper, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, departed this world on June 15, 2016. Richard was born on September 13, 1929, in San Antonio, Texas, to parents Henry Allan Culpepper and Madge Moore Culpepper. He attended Thomas Jefferson High School where he met his lifelong love, Nancy. They were married on June 17, 1950, at Woodlawn Methodist Church.

Richard began work at Culpepper Cleaners, a business his father had started in 1911. His wife, Nancy, later joined him in working at the family business which they ran for many years. Eventually they sold the business to their son and daughter-in-law, Jess B. Culpepper and JoAnne Boone Culpepper, and to their daughter and son-in-law, Terri Culpepper Walker and Mickey Walker, Jr.

Richard was a hard-working and energetic man, who also enjoyed hunting and fishing, and possessed a wealth of knowledge about the outdoors. He and Nancy purchased their ranch in Quihi, Medina County, Texas in 1971, and moved there permanently in 1974. They quickly came to love their new community and were active in their church, New Fountain United Methodist Church.

Richard and Nancy owned a home near Rockport, Texas, where they loved taking family and friends fishing.

In his later years he became interested in woodworking and built a woodworking shop at his ranch. He designed and built many beautiful pieces of furniture, as well as wooden crosses, almost all of which he generously gave to family and friends.

Richard loved farming and ranching. Although he said he was going to sell all of his cattle at the end of the year, no one really believed that would happen. He was also a Mason, and a member of the Quihi New Fountain Historical Society.

Last October Richard fulfilled a lifelong dream when he and Nancy made a journey to Idaho on an elk hunt, where he shot a 1000 pound elk, endowing his family with freezers full of elk meat.

On June 15, 2016, Richard and Nancy embarked on a trip to Cabo San Lucas to celebrate their 66th wedding anniversary. The trip was to mark the occasion of their many years of a happy marriage with marlin fishing for Richard and shopping for Nancy as the planned activities. They perished on the beach in Cabo San Lucas in each other's hands in a drowning accident that same day and are now celebrating with their Savior and Lord in eternal peace and happiness.

Survivors include three children: son Ben Allan Culpepper and wife Joy O. Culpepper; son Jess Bryan Culpepper and wife JoAnne Culpepper; daughter Terri Culpepper Walker and husband Mickey Walker, Jr; six grandchildren: Luke Allan Culpepper and wife Lindsey Culpepper; Ross Garrett Culpepper; Ethan Boone Culpepper; Jessica Isabel Culpepper; Andrew Venoy Walker; Georgia Alison Walker; and three great-grandchildren: Chase Allan Culpepper; Bryce Thomas Culpepper and Kylie Ann Culpepper.

Visitation will be from 6:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M. on Wednesday, June 22, 2016, at Guinn-Horger Funeral Home, 2006 Avenue M, Hondo, TX 78861. The funeral service will be on Thursday, June 23, 2016, at 10:00 A.M. at New Fountain United Methodist Church, 2980 FM 2676, Hondo, TX (Quihi) 78861....with interment in the New Fountain Cemetery across the street.

The family respectfully requests that memorials be made to New Fountain United Methodist Church.7
