VFW Post 4709
|Harold Lloyd Gann, 75, of Conroe, Texas passed away at his home Thursday May 26, 2011. A traditional, military memorial service will be held in his honor at the V.F.W. Post 4709 in Conroe Friday June 3rd at 10:30 AM.
He was born December 5, 1935 in Terral, Oklahoma to the late Lloyd and Jane Rogers Gann. Harold was a decorated veteran of the Korean War. During his tour, he proudly served as a Ranger in the U.S. Army. Following his military service he resided in Livingston, Texas where he began his lifelong career as an independent utility contractor. He was also involved in the Masonic Lodge of Livingston as a Master Mason and Past Worthy Patron. His career led him to Mount Pleasant, Texas where he lived for nearly 20 years. There he deepened his ties to Freemasonry by becoming a Shriner and a member of the Scottish Rite. Harold ultimately retired to Conroe where he became active in his local V.F.W. Post and focused on his favorite hobby of wood carving. He had a passion for helping others, an insatiable desire for learning, and loved the company of friends and family.
He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law Keri and Dale Parrish of Willis, TX; son Aaron Gann of Mt. Pleasant, TX; daughter and son-in-law Dr. Barry and Karyn “Nene” Robertson of Bridge City, TX; son Rick Gann of Wasilla, AK; daughter Lori Gann of Austin, TX; nine grandchildren including Brandi Hall, Michael Parrish, Heather Clinton, Hunter Gann, Hayden Gann, Matthew Robertson, Joseph Robertson, Justin Gann, and Brittany Gann; and four great grandchildren including Cody & Dylan Clinton, and Allissa & Michayla Hall. He was a kind and generous man with a lot of spunk. His friends and family will greatly miss him.
