LEW WAYNE HARPOLD, 77, passed suddenly and entered into rest with our Lord Jesus Christ on the 25th of September 2010 at his home in Houston. Lew was born on the 26th of September 1932 to Mabel C. and Roy Harpold and was a lifelong Houston resident.Lew graduated from Lamar High School and received his BS from Rice University in 1956. While at Rice Lew played on the football team, and was a member of the 1954 team that defeated Alabama in the Cotton Bowl championship game. After college Lew worked as a draftsman for Tennessee Gas, and it was there that he was introduced to Dolores Sanchez, the love of his life. They were married in 1958. Lew attended South Texas College of Law and was admitted to the state bar in 1959. He was one of the founding attorneys of Hofheinz, James & Harpold in 1962. Lew practiced law at this firm and its successors until 1990. In that year he joined Looper Reed & McGraw, where he was a partner, practicing in the areas of Real Estate and Commercial Transactions up until the time of his passing. One of Lew's most important clients during his many years of practicing law was Randall's Food Markets. He was a Director and General Counsel of Randall's for 25 years.The life that Lew and Dolores built together was one filled with family, friends and a very deep and abiding love for Jesus Christ. Lew was an enthusiastic sportsman and outdoorsman and passed that love on to their three sons. Weekends and many joyful holidays centered around "the farm," Pin Oak Creek Ranch, in Cat Spring, Texas. Over the last fifty years, Lew and Dolores and their boys enjoyed ranching, long horseback rides, dances at the dance hall, and the company of many close friends. More recently, family traditions included dinner at the Crossroads fish fry on Friday nights. Lew and Dolores are well-known for their hospitality.Lew was a voracious reader and scholar of history, particularly Texas history. He had a gift for sharing his vast knowledge of history with others. He was a prolific writer on many different topics, including history, religion and marriage. Lew was a member of the Sons of the American Revolution and the Texas State Historical Association.During their 52 years of marriage, Lew and Dolores shared a passion for antiquing, a love of travel, and a love for spending time together in the country. They also shared a devotion to the Bible and the Word of God. For many years they have been active members of Second Baptist Church. Their beautiful marriage is a testament to the sanctity of that union he wrote of in his essay entitled, "What's Forever For."Lew was an extraordinary man, known for his modesty and humility and his high moral and ethical standards, and was immensely respected by his peers, friends and family.Lew was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Dorothy Porter; and by his brother, Roy Harpold. He deeply loved his close family and is survived by his wife, Dolores; and their children: Wayne and wife Gloria, Grant and wife Karen, and Stephen and wife Jill. He also leaves ten grandchildren: Skip, Joel, Jasmin, and Jacob Harpold; Catherine, Hannah and Lauren Harpold; and Blake, Christina and Susanna Harpold.The funeral service is to be conducted at eleven o'clock in the morning on Wednesday, the 29th of September, in the Sanctuary of Second Baptist Church, 6400 Woodway Drive in Houston, where Rev. John C. Barksdale, Executive Director of Pastoral Ministry, is to serve as the lead officiant.Immediately following the service, all are invited to greet the family during a reception in the Deacons' Parlor.The interment and graveside service is to follow at three o'clock in the afternoon, or shortly thereafter, at the Kollatschny Cemetery in Cat Spring, northwest of Sealy in Austin County.In lieu of customary remembrances, contributions in Lew's memory may be directed to the Texas State Historical Association, 1155 Union Circle # 311580, Denton, TX, 76203-5017; or to the charity of one's choice.

Lew Harpold was a true friend and trusted advisor to my father, my mother and my own family for over 30 plus years. I often think of him and his calm and smiling face and still miss him. He is one of those rare True Gentleman that it is was my privilege to know and learn from. God bless this great man.

Lew was my friend, and he made me laugh, he touched my heart. He was genuine and he is someone I will never forget ever. I loved him. He reminds me so much of my own father, and all I can say to Lew's children, is that you are very very blessed to have had such an amazing father. My prayers and my warmest of thoughts to all of the Harpold family.

Dolores, 19 years ago around this time of year you were helping us find a home. We were just looking back on those days fondly and wondering how you were. Then we saw the notice of your husband's passing. We are deeply sorry and offer our sincere condolences and prayers for you and your family.

Dear Dolores, Wayne, Grant and Stephen,

Lew was my hero, friend and wise counselor. He was truly a great man...kind, generous, good natured, and a pleasure to be with under all circumstances.

Like you, i will miss him terribly. However, we can all take comfort, one from another, with the wisdom, warm memories, and other gift of the soul Lew left for us.

Lew was a’ man’s Man’, yet gentle and loving to all. In turn, everyone loved Lew. We are all diminished by his passing, but surely richer for the time he was with us. He knew God and wanted each of us to also know his Lord and Savior.

I have every confidence that Lew is with the Holy Trinity, which he loved so much. God's good and faithful servant, Lew is Home and will be waiting to greet the worthy of us...I pray we shall again all be together when like Lew, our work is done.

God bless and comfort you. I am a poor substitute but know I stand ready to serve you in every way possible.

With deepest sympathies,

Sincerely,

Jack Morris Rains

Uncle Lew was my childhood idle. When ever I had a problem that seemed insurmountable I would always seek Uncle Lew's advice. He always had time to listen and gave good advice. He took me and my brother under his wing when we were kids learning the ropes. He instilled all of the good qualities that a man needs in life. I can not put into words what his counsel meant to my brother and me as we grew up in West University.

When I had children, I made sure that they spent as much time as possible around Uncle Lew. A holiday never went by that at some point included a trip out to Uncle Lew's house. When my boys were three or four years old, we started hunting with him and his boys in South Texas. It became an annual outting that no one wanted to ever miss. We laughed at his humor, non-stop, the whold weekend. Lew never missed the opportunity on these outtings to pass along a great lesson of life. Grant, Lew, and I were always in search of the "best" Mexican restaurant in Houston. Hunting in South Texas always included several trips to the best Mexican joint in the area. We had a great time talking about football, hunting, fishing, or politics. He was a great man.

In life you only come in contact with a few individuals that are truly great people. Lew is one of those guys. He was a great Christian, a man's man, fair, and gentle. He loved life and made everybody around him feel good. I will miss him.

My name is Neil Upchurch. Lew Harpold and I were the best of pals during our days at Pershing Junior High School. We both lived in West University Place, Lew on Nottingham Street, I lived on Georgetown Street.

We were "running buddies". Lew and I would occasionally get in minor trouble and have to go together to the Principal Clarence Orman's office. One day Mr. Orman grabbed me by the arm in the hallway before the final period and asked, "why Lew and I had not yet been sent to his office today". I explained that I was unable to get in trouble today because Lew was home sick.

Many years later, I discovered that my nephew Brad Bierstedt and Wayne were roommates and football teammates at Rice. It really is a small world isn't it.

What I really want to say to Dolores, Wayne, Grant and Stephen Harpold is that I knew and loved your husband and father before you did. I know that his passing has brought great sadness to you. Lew's passing has brought to me sincere sadness, but yet wonderful and warm memories of Lew. Another of Lew's buddies, Bill Van Wart told me of Lew's passing tonight, October 5.

RIP - My old buddy Lew

Lew was one of those remarkable and unique individuals whom you can never forget. While I knew him mostly professionally as we practiced law in the same firm, I couldn't help getting to know him quite well as a person. Lew had the rare combination of phenomenal integrity and a wonderful dry wit. He was unusually thoughtful in everything he did and said. He loved the practice of law and carried himself as a true gentlemen every step of the way. Even though I had not seen Lew for many years as I left the law practice and moved out of state a while ago, I would call Lew from time to time for advice. Lew was a man of great wisdom and trust, while being very laid back and easy going. I will never forget my time with Lew.

Oh Grant, I am so sorry to hear about your dad. Although I did not know him very well, each time I saw him he was always so warm and friendly to me. I have enjoyed reading the wonderful stories about him in this guest book. I know you are very proud of him. Bill and I are praying for you, Karen and your family.

Dear Wayne, Mrs. Harpold and family,

I am so sorry for your loss. I feel cheated since I did not know your father personally. What a wonderful, exemplary life he led!

However, I did have the gift of knowing you, as you were one of my favorites at Stratford. Your father has left a wonderful legacy in you, his son Wayne.

May God's love, as experienced through friends and family, be a source of comfort at this difficult time.

With deepest sympathy,

Harpold family - Lew and I worked together and my dealings with Lew echo what I hear from everyone else - he was unfailingly gracious and inclusive to everyone, me included. What I remember the most is Lew's ability to react spontaneously and knowledgeably to whatever topic I would raise with him. No matter what I would say, and regardless how off the wall it was or how far out in left field it came from, Lew would immediately (and I mean immediately) launch off on a thoughtful analysis that would have taken me at least three days to prepare. It was as if he knew exactly what was coming and had been thinking about it for several days, preparing for my specific question or comment. He had a unique mind and he was a beautiful person.

Although I had contact with Lew only a few times over the fifty plus years, since we were teammates at Rice, I can see from the many glowing entries in the guest book, that Lew continued to build on the outstanding character and personality traits that he displayed during those early days at Rice.

Sincere condolences to the Harpold family. We all suffer from the loss of such a fine man and look forward to his resurrection in God's kingdom.

Dear Mrs. Harpold and family,it was a real pleasure knowing Mr. Harpold and he was a great friend to my grandfather and father. I have fond memories hunting with our families at Todos Santos Ranch when we were growing up and he always had a funny story to share. He will be truly missed.

I only knew the man that traveled to Cat Spring most every weekend, but what a great man he was indeed. Always very kind, generous and respectful to all of my family, especially my kids. No doubt he was one of the special ones sent our way. Also, a big thank you Lew for being a great friend to my dad as well.

Lew is now in a better place and I will think of him kindly each time I drive by Pin Oak Creek Ranch.

As a Rice history major, it was very illuminating to read his writings, in particular the recent article in The Houston Chronicle about the Battle of San Jacinto. Each time I visit Rice Stadium, you can't miss the 6' high banner hanging from the top of the stadium ceiling which shows his football picture from his playing days in the 1950s.

Mrs. Harpold,

I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Harpold was a kind and caring man. No matter how busy he was, he took time out of his day to visit with me, my brothers, and my parents whenever we stopped by the ranch on our way to our own property. Those visits are memories I will take with me each time I travel to the farm.

With Doloris & Lew outside Luby's on Post Oak
Lew Harpold...what a true Texas Character!!!! I can only speak of my experience knowing Lew. I first met him in 1985 after befriending his son Grant while attending South Texas College of Law before dropping out. After dropping out a little over a year in from a worried mind and a troubled/questioning soul Lew was always willing to lend a kind ear and offer helpful recommendations to direct me on my path. He tried to help place me with any number of businesses telling me.."Buster..you've been blessed with a personality that could charm anyone, but you need to put it to use in a practical way, or risk being a wanderer". He shared this observation in complete love from a place of care and concern.

Lew, a Man of few words would return every call and email to debate me the young dude with the impulsive/knee-jerk commentary not always well thought out. I mention this because in true "Jesustarian" fashion he was patient, kind, and willing to chew the fat with me.

Lew and I disagreed on many things political and religious, but this did not keep him from being respectful and genuinely friendly. While Lew and I shared a love of history his most endearing trait to me was his sense of humor. How I enjoyed being on the receiving end of his dry whit. I lobbed some harsh things at Lew over the years and none of it phased him in the least. He was resolute.

Lew Harpold has 110 percent of my respect. What a MAN. A Granite Spirit cut in the fashion of Teddy Roosevelt. He would be the first to tell you he was not without fault, which is why I love him. He was sort of a father figure to me without him knowing it.

It's obvious why Doloris fell in love with him. God Bless you Lew, God Speed to you. Thanks for always asking me if you'd see me on the other side of the Jordan!l And more than anything allowing me to know a real Texas Man of which few remain.

Dear Dolores, Wayne, Grant & Stephen,
What a privilege it has been for me and my entire family to have known such a True Gentleman and Friend as I found in Lew W. Harpold. He was a Special Friend and Counselor to the founding fathers and their families at Randall's Food Markets. His advice and wise counsel played a significant role in the growth and prosperity of our company.
I have so many fond memories of the great times we had on hunting trips to the Todos Santos and Catorce Ranches in South Texas. Hot, cold, wet, or all three-we always had a good time when Lew was there. He always had a smile and a good word and he kept us entertained with his wit, wisdom and his infinite knowledge of the happenings and the history of this great state of Texas.
We will miss him dearly!
Sandy and I want you to know that you and your entire Family are on our hearts and in our prayers.

Uncle Lew's presents will be forever missed however my memories of him will never be forgotten. I know Dad always looked up to Uncle Lew and his role as a man, husband, father, mentor, and friend to all. As a nephew of Uncle Lew's, I learned so many life lessons from him over the years that will never be forgotten. Reflecting back on ALL of my memories of Uncle Lew, I can't keep from going back to the annual family dove hunts in South Texas with Lew, Wayne, Grant, Stephen, and all the Porter's. Man, I sure looked forward to that every year!!! It was almost as good as Christmas. Sitting on the tailgate of the truck, after a successful evening shoot, having Uncle Lew show us a new knot that he had learned to tie or a new belt that he a made from his own two hands or just listening to him talk about life in general will be the times that I will most cherish. I feel very blessed to have been a part of his life. Now may he rest in the Lord's hands.

I remember the first time I met Mr Harpold. I had recently gotten Married to Chris Larkin who was friends with Grant. We were at the wedding of one of their mutual friends. I discovered that Chris didn't like to dance and I was always just sitting on the sidelines at all his friends weddings watching everyone else dance. I love to dance. That night at the reception I felt so out of place. Lew came over to me and said "I'll dance with you." What a good dancer! That was such a nice thing to do. It was almost 20 years ago. I have never forgotten his kindness. I have noticed over the years that his son, Grant has that same kindness.

I am sad. But for those of us who were lucky enough to have Lew Harpold in our lives, we have to rejoice in the time we had together. Some people have a special teacher, a great sports coach, a certain family member, an inspiring minister... I had Lew Harpold. I learned much from him about the practice of law, but I learned more about life...about fried jalopenas, the battle at Goliad, diesel trucks, wildflowers, how to knock out your pipe on the trash can, priorities. He could hold that silent grin just long enough for you to realize on your own that you had missed 2 belt loops (and if you didn't, he'd say something like "belt loops are overrated" and just walk away. They were all teaching moments and gratefully we all heard them. He taught ws the difference between the Texas 2 step and the Florida 3 step, that it was OK to have one leg of your dress pants stuck inside your boot at the office, the importance of April 21st (now a personal holiday at my home here in Florida). He was firm, yet gentle, learned, yet humble, chivalrous, yet modern. He was always and will be forever, a gentleman, a friend and an extraordinary role model. I will honor him by trying to live my life as he did. Thank you to Dolores, Wayne, Grant and Stephen for sharing him with us. My condolences.

My heart is so heavy with sadness but my mind is full of so many wonderful memories. One of my favorite memories was when I was in high school hanging out at y’alls house, Mr. Harpold would start to retreat to the upstairs, he’d stop on the staircase, look at us and give one more life lesson, one more “what would Jesus do” situation, that Grant coined as “The Sermon on the Staircase”... He always directed us to Jesus. So many great memories~My love and condolences.

To the entire Harpold Family - my condolences and prayers are with you. I so appreciate the friendship my family has with yours. It is our pleasure and honor to have known Lew, and to have gotten to spend time with him. I remember running into him at an advanced real estate seminar once. I looked back from my seat to find him intensely studying his materials. When I walked up to him later to say hello, he was still engrossed - albeit in a book about leather braiding that he had placed inside his coursebook. He didn't need to study, though. He already knew it all!
