Obituary for Edward A. Sacre

December 18, 1927 - December 18, 2019
San Antonio, Texas | Age 92


Edward A. Sacre passed away on his 92nd birthday on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas.

Born to Anton Sacre and Elizabeth Ogdee in San Antonio, TX on December 18, 1927. Edward was the youngest child born of Lebanese heritage in a family of seven children.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Anton and Elizabeth Sacre; wife, Ruth Sacre; sisters, Mary Sacre, Rose Jamail and Sarah Buckley; brothers, George, Emil and Sam.
Edward is survived by his daughters, Sandi Severance (Bob) and Debby Clawson (Tommy); son, Tony Sacre (Sandra); grandchildren, Robby Severance (Betsy), Nick Clawson (Leslie), Andrew Clawson (Jeff), Tyler Sacre and Megan Sacre; great-grandchildren, Evan, Rebecca, Oliver and Luna; numerous nieces and nephews.

Edward graduated from Jefferson High School and served in the Army during the Korean war. Soon after high school he met the love of his life Ruth Stock. Making their home in San Antonio he contracted with Lackland Air Force Base to manage Cleaning and Laundry Facilities. Some years later he decided to go into the "Beauty" business and opened and operated several hair salons in San Antonio. This was followed by starting an insurance agency with Farmers Insurance Group in the mid 1970's. After 40+ years he retired at the (young) age of 82.

Edward was an early champion of making "home movies". He began his amateur career in the 1950's with a camera and projector much to the delight and sometimes chagrin of those around him. Today we are thankful for his hobby of family movies which provides us with many hours of smiles, laughter and often tears over the past 60 years.

Widely known for his superb golf game, extraordinary cooking skills,
and frequenting his favorite house of worship.

His golf swing was so graceful and exquisite, that he rarely fell over, and sometimes even landed on one foot or more. He was never short of balls in his bag due to the free service he provided golf clubs by clearing stray balls (while searching for his own).

In the kitchen, there was no equal. His specialties included the likes of delicately warmed eggbeaters, turned as many times as possible with the most experienced utensil in his arsenal. Meticulously spread nut butters on the most delectable breads available (i.e. on sale and white were his only two requirements).
Then there was his love affair with a house of worship (aka Las Vegas). Eddie was known to ask anyone, and I mean anyone, to accompany him on an adventure to Sin City. Some people, some very brave people, actually acquiesced to his request. Some even made it back to tell the tales.
Eddie was well known for his driving skills coming from a long line of truck drivers. Although, after a streak of "freak" accidents he was quoted as saying "that guy had no business parking his car there" when asked about the cause of the accidents.

Despite his expertise in these arts and skills, he remained humble enough to be loved by the many lives he touched. Always the jokester, the center of attention, and life of the party; his presence was always made known. And that's the father, Uncle Eddie, Paw Paw, and Mr. Sacre that we all loved deep in our hearts. This amazing man of so many characters will surely be missed but will also be remembered for the warmth and love that he showed to all.

A very special and heartfelt thank you to Leticia, her Care Givers and Hospice nurses to seeing to all his needs through many years of his care.

Memorial service will be held on Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020 at 1:30pm at The Fellowship of San Antonio, 23755 Canyon Golf Rd., San Antonio, TX 78258.
