Texeira, George  
Born and raised in Bristol, RI, George was the youngest of five siblings (one brother, three sisters). His sisters would take him to the Saturday matinee movies to see Tom Mix and Tony, Red Ryder, the Cisco Kid, and eventually John Wayne. After seeing "Duke" in the movie "Red River", George wanted to go west and become a cowboy when he grew up. George left high school a year early and ventured west to San Diego, CA when his sister and brother-in-law moved their family to California. He finished high school by taking night classes and received his AA degree in Pre-veterinary studies in 1960. He became a western horse trainer after working for the reknowned trainer Jimmy Williams for a time. George learned to train horses -- good ones and bad ones. He almost always found a way to make them into good or useful horses, whether starting them from scratch or fixing someone else's training mistakes. George was a fixture on the California horse show scene for years, showing many good horses and coaching youth and amateur riders to reach their goals. In 1991, George completed training to be employed as a USDA meat inspector. Upon retirement, he was hired by the San Joaquin County Agriculture Department to be in a group tasked with trapping the Glassy-winged Sharpshooter. This was an outdoor and physically active job which he rather enjoyed in his later years, working seasonally past his 80th birthday. George is greatly missed by his wife of 28 years (Deanna) and the members of both of their families, plus numerous friends that have been made over the years. Though he never had children of his own, he loved kids and could engage with and relate well to any child. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude's Childrens Hospital or other children's charity. Please join us in a celebration of George's life June 2, 2016 at 1 pm at the Lodi Eagles Lodge, 217 E. Lockeford St., Lodi, CA 95240
