Lawrence Harry "Papaw" Dailey
Just now seeing this obit. I have many wonderful memories of Mr. Dailey as my World History teacher at Austin High School. He made history pertinent to today's world and showed me how to keep relating it that way. I learned to love the subject. His gentle humor and warm smile was priceless in a teacher. I also attended many football games and enjoyed watching them, always eager to congratulate him when they won. Those were the good ole days......May God continue to bless and keep his family in the future.
My heartfelt condolences to the friends and family of Coach Dailey - he was my coach at Copperas Cove in 1965 in football and track. Rest in peace Coach.
I was fortunate to be coached in both football and track by Coach Daily. I always smile a little bit when I think back to those those years and Coach Daily.
I woke up this morning thinking of Coach Dailey. I have not seen him in years and my interaction with him was limited to only a few years while I was a student at Leander High School and a few occasional family events. However, he's one of those individuals that stand out in my mind as someone I admire, respected and will remember. Coach Dailey was a kind and gentle man. He was well spoken, dressed casually and always appeared ready for teaching a class or hitting the football field. He would glide through life easily and when you were in his presence there was a calming effect that I cannot explain. He always had the right answers regardless of the subject. He was loved by those close to him because he had a very good heart and a gentle soul. I am very thankful for the time I did have with him and pray for those that feel his loss the most. I'm certain his place in heaven was reserved a very long time ago and he is looking down on all of us smiling with the same kind eyes and gentle heart he had throughout the course of his life. Thank you God for blessing us with his life and please look after him and have him look after us; as he would make a great angel.
