Maurice was employed by the City of College Station as a meter reader and later as a city inspector. He retired in 1997 and enjoyed sharing time with family, going to casino’s and managing his real estate holdings. Maurice also experienced great joy in sharing time (and his powdered donuts) with his grandchildren. Maurice was a lifelong member of Snook Brethren Church and served on the Elders Board several times.
