Harold Maurer Voges worshipped Jesus in Heaven on Sunday morning after he slipped away peacefully in his sleep on January 12, 2020. He was born on March 19, 1926 in Monthalia, TX and went on to serve in the United States Army after graduating from New Braunfels High School in 1943. Over his 93 years he touched countless lives. He was a Master Gardener, Life Member of the Comal County Junior Livestock Association, and an active member of St Paul Lutheran Church. Harold was generous and kind and always had a funny joke to share. His pickles will be missed by all as will his beautiful hymn singing. His patriotism ran deep and he could out work almost anyone. But most importantly he was a Christian man with a deep faith and was a role model for many. He truly “fought the good fight,....finished the race,..... kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7.
Harold was preceded in death by his parents, Fritz and Hilda Voges; his brother, Fred Voges (Vera Mae), and his sister, Mildred Schumann (Carroll).
He is survived by his beloved wife of 69 years, Doris Nell Voges; brothers, Leonard Voges (Violet) and Mark Voges; children, Nick Voges (Janice) and Rie Voges; grandchildren, Jessica Voges Thomas (Keith) and Jerri Kelley (Chet), and 10 cherished great-grandchildren.
