L.D. Ferguson remembered

A common epitaph for the deceased is “Gone, but not forgotten.” For L.D. Ferguson, who passed away Oct. 26, most likely he’ll be remembered and talked about for a long time.

Ferguson, 94, was a veteran known for his vast community service in Burnet County.

“L.D. had a great personality, and I’ll remember his ability to play cards and dance, even in his 80s and 90s,” said Mary Meyer, a member of the Marble Falls Senior Activity Center, where Ferguson spent a lot of his time.

“It’s my opinion that everyone that knows Mr. Ferguson would tell you he is the nicest man ever,” longtime friend and neighbor Larry Jones said. “He has been extremely generous in his gifts to various organizations in Marble Falls, particularly with the Senior Center, where he not only donated money, but every year would donate the turkeys and hams for the Thanksgiving meals. What a great guy.”
