David Acker, the father of Facilities Accounts Administrator Elaine Sanford, passed away May 7 in Corpus Christi. While Sanford was traveling to Corpus Christi, Acker passed away at a local nursing home in his sleep. Acker, a native of the Texas Panhandle town Nazareth and a farmer, retired to Corpus Christi to be closer to his children and grandchildren. He and and his wife Mary have three sons and three daughters with many grandchildren. Family members are traveling from Idaho, Alabama and various parts of Texas for the visitation this weekend. Burial mass will be at 10 a.m. on Monday at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church in Corpus Christi, to be immediately followed by the graveside burial.
Family of Acker request that any donations be given to your favorite charity or pro-life group, as Acker was a prayerful supporter and participant of the pro-life movement.
