CRAIN
Warren Hudspeth Crain, born November 7, 1921 died July 4, 2013 at the age of 91 in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in 1939 and the University of Texas in Austin in 1948 with a B.S. degree in Pharmacy. After spending three years in the U.S. Army, he went to work at the Crain and Palmer Pharmacy in San Antonio. In later years he bought out Mr. Elmer Palmer's interest in the pharmacy so that he and his dad were co-owners. He had to quit the pharmacy business in 1995 due to health reasons. Warren was a very fine athlete in his younger days, excelling in golf, tennis, softball and basketball. He won the coveted award as the Best Intramural Athlete at U.T. his senior year. He was a member of the Texas Lodge #8 of the Scottish Rite and the Alzafar Shrine. He was a past president of the San Antonio Philatelic Assn and a past vice president of the Texas Philatelic Assn. A stamp collector most of his life, he was the only nationally accredited philatelic judge of stamp exhibits at stamp shows from San Antonio. An active stamp exhibitor at stamp shows in the 1960's and 1970's, he won the Grand Award at the state convention in 1964 with a Hawaii exhibit and the Grand Award at the state convention in 1966 with a Zeppelin exhibit. He was especially proud of the large silver award he received at the International Show in Philadelphia in 1976 with his Hawaii exhibit. He wrote many stamp articles for Texas Philatex, the house organ of the Texas Philatelic Assn. He received the Distinguished Philatelic Texas Award in 1980, the highest honor the Texas Philatelic Assn. can bestow on a member. He was preceded in death by his wife of 61 years, Jo Hazel Crain; his son, Warren H. Crain, Jr.; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Perry Levi Crain; sister, Janell Crain Cole; and brother, Kellam. He is survived by many nieces and nephews and cousins.
