Stelzig Saddlery all his life. He married Ella Mae Raney and they
had one daughter, Linda Sue.
Linda Sue, born on August 11, 1942, married John David Sackett on
November 21, 1964. The couple lived in San Antonio for eighteen years
before returning to Houston and now living in Burne, Texas. Linda

A handsome man was Willie at five feet and nine inches tall weighing
170 pounds with brown hair and big beautiful brown eyes. He had a
dry wit and was a charming man, easy to like and to love.
After his divorce, Willie later married Hazel Touche'. After
Willie's retirement, they moved to Wimberly. Hazel and Willie were
devoted to each other and loved their retirement days. Hazel was
previously married and had children. Her daughter, Barbara, married
