Laurence Allen “Hank” Schilder
December 06, 1926 – March 12, 2015
Laurence (Hank) Schilder, age 88, passed away March 12 at home in Brenham. From the time he was a little boy he was drawing pictures of planes and boats. That eventually led to a career as a commercial artist where he met his future wife, Maurine, of nearly 66 years. He was well known and liked by friends and clients alike for his outgoing personality and sense of humor. He never met a stranger. He was welcomed into the afterlife by his parents and son, W. Ben, and many friends that passed before him. He is survived by his wife, Maurine; daughter, Nancy Webster and husband Tracy; son, Steve Schilder; son, (David) Rusty Schilder; sister, Dorothy Moss; grandchildren, Jessica, Travis, Haley, and John Schilder; and nieces and nephews. According to his wishes, there will be no formal service. A celebration of his life for family and close friends will be announced at a later date. Donations in his memory may be made to Hospice of Brazos Valley.
