Cledith "C.R." Pope
February 26, 1949 ~ June 23, 2013
Cledith "C.R." Pope, 64, of New Braunfels, TX passed away on Sunday, June 23, 2013 at home. Born on February 26, 1949 in Clarksville, TX, he is the son of Thelma Varner Pope and the late Cledith Pope. C.R. is survived by his wife, Patsy S. Pope; son, Patrick Pope; sister, Julie Carter and husband Vernon Carter. He was an avid reader, loved nature, and community with friends. His laugh was infectious and his intellect was superior, matched only by his genuine interest in friends, knowledge, and new experiences. Kind to all, C.R. embraced those that needed love in the times they needed it most. Seeing the magic in "this great and mysterious life" he never doubted that all will be well and lead through encouragement. Hyper-Aware of the best moments in life he was never short on cheer, a smile, and humor. A free man that was loved for his spirit and brilliance. "Let's Party" is a classic C.R. quote. After crossing over you can bet he has set up an area in the shade for us all to gather in laughter and celebration. A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, June 27, 2013 at 2:00 pm at the New Braunfels Presbyterian Church, 373 Howard St., New Braunfels. Interment will be private.
