On a cold winter morning, Mr. Angerman was born December 1, 1929, in the family farmhouse outside of Waco, Texas, the son of the late Fritz William Martin and Emily Elaine (Ender) Angermann. Growing up, he helped the family by working on the family farm. On January 27, 1951, he married Doris Marie Barton in Waco, Texas, who preceded him in death.
Later in life, John was employed by Blue Bell Ice Cream, Borden Ice Cream and Texas Fire Proof Storage. However, his full-time career was as a film projectionist at KWTX TV, from which he retired. After his retirement, he and Doris owned General Machine and Welding. It has been said, “Dad never had only one job”. He had the heart of an inventor and was always thinking of new and better ways of doing things.
In his later years after his wife Doris passed away, he left the land which he and his family had owned for more than 100 years and moved to his home on Lake Belton where he enjoyed watching the wildlife from his back porch.
John enjoyed the outdoors. Hunting and fishing with his children and grandchildren were an important part of his life.
John was a life-long Lutheran Christian and was always able to recite his confirmation verse, Psalm 37:5 “Commit your way to the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”
Also preceding him in death were two brothers August Angerman, Walter Angerman and a granddaughter, Allison Angerman.
Survivors include two sons, Melvin Raymond Angerman and wife Deborah Suhre, David Martin Angerman and wife Kimberly; two daughters, Janice Marie Springman and husband Larry, Karen Elaine House and husband David Andrew; a sister Pauline Rosenauer; eleven grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren.
