Steve Winford McCaleb, born October 7, 1947 in Goose Creek, TX, went home to the Lord on June 6, 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Steve lived his life to the fullest. He served his country in the Army before spending his career in the petrochemical industry.

Active from a young age, he excelled in sports such as racquetball, golf, softball, and weightlifting, was gifted at culinary arts, and he served for years as a volunteer fireman. He was a fan of geology and spent the last years of his life dedicated to his rock polishing craft and was a member of the Houston Gem and Mineral Society. Known best for his sense of humor (which he had right up until the end), he never met a stranger and was loved by all who knew him.

Steven Greer, Brazos Civil War Veteran

Steven Greer, who departed this life on Sunday afternoon, December 30th, 1917, was a native of Brazos county, having been born on the north line of Rock Prairie on what is now known as the old Clapp place, December 1st, 1845. He was 72 years and one month of age at the time of his death. He was raised here and went to the war from this county in 1862 and served valiantly under the surrender. He returned here after the close of the war and took up the occupation of farming which he followed all the remainder of his life.

He was married a few months before the close of the war while at home on a furlough to Miss Sarah Ann Martin who resided in Millican, then the principal town of the county. He and his wife made Brazos county their home from the day they were wed and reared their family here. Nine children were born to them, six boys and three girls. All the children are dead except three sons, all of whom are grown with families of their own. One son died in Austin about three weeks ago. He is also survived by his widow who will make her home with her sister, Mrs. T.J. Caywood of this city, spending part of the time with her sons.

Steven Greer was a good man and a good neighbor. He was as kind hearted as a child and liberal to a fault. No man ever went to him for a favor that he did not grant if within his power. He was a member of the Free Baptist church.

The funeral services were held on Monday afternoon and the remains were laid to rest in the old Simms burying ground near his home, in the presence of many of his life-long friends and neighbors.

Sybil Goodgion Clarke, devoted wife, beloved mother, and spirited grandmother took her final bow on Tuesday, December 10, 2013.

She was born to Sybil Houston Goodgion and Ernest Ruel Goodgion on July 30, 1935 in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Sybil was, at her heart, a tap dancer; an artist whose surprising idiosyncrasies and broad improvisations astonished and delighted us all. Sybil danced to her own beat. She performed tap and ballet as part of her family dance troop in the 40s and 50s. She was a 1953 graduate of C.E. Byrd and attended Louisiana Tech. In the early 60s, she worked at Penrod Oil as a secretary where she was set up on a blind date with a young geologist, Dee Clarke. They would later marry and have four sons. She loved Dee through over 45 years of marriage, and nursed him through 25 years of Parkinson's Disease. Sybil was an active member of Broadmoor United Methodist Church, Shreveport Garden Club, her Sunday School Class, and the Shreveport Geological Society. In her spare time, she tutored kids at A.C. Steere Elementary in reading.

She always spoke her mind. She wore purple. She wore orange. She wore yellow. Sometimes all together, with rhinestones. She knew how to have fun. She loved God and her family. She never gave up on any of us. She prayed for everyone.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Harris Gibson Clarke Jr. as well as both of her parents and her brother, Ernest Randolf Goodgion.

She is survived by her four sons and their families: Mr. and Mrs. Harris Grant Clarke of Seattle, WA; Mr. and Mrs. Dan Clarke of Dallas, TX; Mr. and Mrs. Will Clarke of Dallas, TX; Mr. and Mrs. Josh Clarke of Shreveport; her sister, Nancy Goodgion Mook of Greenville, NC.
