W R “Dub” Joines
W R “Dub” Joines, 92 years, of Francitas, Texas, passed away on Wednesday, August 25, 2021. W R was born on August 14, 1929 to W R and Ada Joines.
After graduating from LaWard High School, W R worked for and retired from Alcoa after thirty years of service. After his retirement he became a rancher; his pride and joy were his cattle.
He married the love of his life, Albina Walleck, on August 29, 1950, in Blessing, Texas. They were married for almost 71 years.
He is survived by his wife, Albina; daughters, Judy and husband Curtis Dykes, Penny Joines; sons, Jimmy and wife Kathy Joines, Clarence and wife Angie Joines. Also surviving are his nine grandchildren and eighteen great-grandchildren.
W R was affectionately known as “Dub” by his family and friends. He spent much time in the maintenance and the up-keep of their home place. He couldn’t resist a good game of dominos with family and friends. When he could find the time, he enjoyed fishing and running the occasional trout line.
There will be a graveside service on August 28 at LaBauve Cemetery in Francitas, Texas at 10 a.m. with Father Johnson officiating. Services have been entrusted to Russell Todish of Slavik Funeral Home, 209 N. Allen Street, Edna, TX 77957, 361-782-2152.
