Maurice Cecil Holle was born August 28, 1938 in Winters, Texas, the son of Edmond Henry Holle and Rosmund Anna (Pruser) Holle. Maurice was baptized on October 2, 1938 and confirmed into the Lutheran faith on September 21, 1952. He was a devout Christian all his life. He graduated from Winters High School in 1957 and attended both Sul Ross and McMurry Colleges on football scholarships. He played semi-professional football for a year.
Maurice met the love of his life, Carol Ann, in 1964 and they married in March of 1965 in San Angelo, Texas. He made his home in Del Rio, Texas for 15 years and moved to East Texas in July 1982. He retired from Gourmet Award Foods in 1998. Maurice was interested in hunting and fishing, never met a stranger and would rather talk than anything.
