Really Nice Article about H D *Dock* Staples in the Cleburne paper

12 May 2008 at 11:53:41 PM

Dock Staples was born June 21, 1915, in Bonita and went on to become a career teacher as an adult. He taught six years in Godley ISD and 22 years in Joshua ISD, where an elementary school bears his name in honor of his accomplishments as an educator.
Dock Staples married Winnie Groves on July 17, 1938, and she preceded him in death Aug. 18, 2005. He is survived by his one son, Dwin Staples and his wife, Margaret; his grandsons, Clint and wife, Jylyce, and Steve and wife, Shiloh; great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews.

“He lived a full life, and God blessed him,” Steve said. “He died, and that was tragic, but it wasn’t really a tragedy because you couldn’t ask for more of a life than he had. He was so giving. He just poured himself out into other people and it was returned to him the rest of his life.”

I was one of the hundreds of Mr. Staples "kids."  He was one of the most positive influences in my life.  He had wisdom and humor, kindess and expectations.

There are not many of his caliber in this world and he will be missed.  I know his presence is a loss to his family, but I am sure that he is happy to be with his beloved Winnie again.

My deepest condelences to his family.

I didn't know his father but I have the utmost respect for Dwin Staples and his family.
