Walter Hoenow Obituary
Walter Paul Hoenow, beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather and great-grandfather, went to be with the Lord on April 30, 2012 at the age of 81. He was born on December 11, 1930 to Edith and Otto Hoenow in San Antonio, Texas. Walter was preceded in death by his wife of 58 years, Emma Hermina Lenz, his parents, his three brothers, Manfred, Werner and Harold. He is survived his daughters, Cynthia Folsom and husband, Michael, Linda Kariger; his grandchildren, Wesley and Michele Kariger, Amanda and Allen Cockrell; his great-grandchildren, Sean and Lauren Kariger and Zachary Cockrell; sisters, Ruth Legnon and Margaret Jarvis of New Jersey and numerous nieces and nephews. He spent his 48 year career as an engineer and machinist with Colonial Cake Company and L&H Packing Company. He retired in 1995 to Lake LBJ where he became a full time avid hunter and fisherman. When not fishing at Lake LBJ he was often hunting in West Texas with his hunting buddies. He holds the record for the largest catfish caught at Lake LBJ, dubbed "Little Bubba", which weighed in at 47.5 lbs. He also caught "Big Bubba", a 72 lb yellow catfish, that did not get on the record books because it was not weighed on a certified scale. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed. Visitation with the family will be from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, 2012 at Sunset Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, May 4, 2012 in Sunset Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will follow at Sunset Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in the name of Walter Hoenow, to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at 435 Isom Rd. San Antonio, TX 78216 or call (210) 377-1775.
