Obituary for Junior McCracken

Junior Cecil McCracken, 92, of Goliad, left this world on January 29, 2018.

Mr. McCracken was born in Kentucky on September 13, 1925 to Dency and Ida McCracken. J.C. “Red” McCracken, as most knew him, migrated to Texas after serving in the military during World War II. He was a gunner in the Army Air Force flying in B-24’s. He did a stint in the oilfield after his discharge. Realizing that the oilfield was not his niche, Red joined up with a bricklayer, Henry Luddeke Jr. Proving his worth, the two would create a partnership that lasted many years.

Along the way he met and married the love of his life, Iris Arleith Kilgore McCracken. They would bring eight children into their union. The family ended up on family land in Schroeder Texas. There Red took up farming and ranching in addition to bricklaying. He kept up with ranching until his last days.

J.C. “Red” McCracken is survived by seven children: Lynn (Bruce) Miller of Victoria, Carol (Terry) Barton of Corpus Christi, Rhonda (Ed) Coffey of Huntsville, Cecile (Gene) Pfeiffer of Madison AL, Toscana (Bill) Gohlke of Victoria, Cecil (Diane) McCracken of Godley, Jocelyn Badough (Alton Paris) of Marion, numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchildren. Also surviving is his sister Dora Mae Williams of Indiana.

J.C. “Red” McCracken was preceded in death by his parents, wife Iris, and daughter Bonny Lynn Malik, and family members from Indiana.

The book will be available to sign on Wednesday, January 31st from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm at Grace Funeral Home - Goliad. Funeral services will be Thursday, February 1st at 2:00 pm at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Goliad with the Very Reverend Charles Otsiwah presiding and burial to follow at Coletoville Cemetery.
