1919 - 2015 A.P. Verret, Jr. passed at the age of 96, in the early morning hours on Thursday, September 17, 2015, with his family at his side. He was born on May 14, 1919, in Saratoga, to parents, Amy and A.P. Verret, Sr. A.P. Verret, Jr. was employed by Union Oil of California and Pure Oil in Nederland, Texas. Upon retirement at the age of 62, he and his wife were very active with Round and Square Dance groups in Southeast Texas. They traveled the United States extensively sightseeing and dancing including a road trip from Southeast Texas to Alaska. He served his country in the United States Army during World War II during campaigns through France and Germany and had many stories during his tour of duty. A.P. was a very spiritual and devoted member of the Catholic community in Beaumont and Austin, Texas. He will be dearly missed by many for his devotion to his faith, his sense of humor, and his love of life particularly when it involved dancing. We were very lucky to have him in our lives for so long. For the past four years A.P. Verret, Jr. has been a resident of Parsons House in Austin and previously resided in Beaumont at his home and later for five years in Collier Park, an assisted living facility.
