“Tex” Abraham Vernon Munder, was born February 12, 1941 to George and Grace (Jerome) Munder. He spent his first 14 years on the family farm and going to country school. In 1955, the family moved to New Salem. There he was active working as a farm hand for neighbors and friends. Soon after moving to New Salem, Tex found the Backsen Farm and spent many days there enjoying friendship and the activities going on. Bill and his family were very special to him. Tex has always loved horses and anything involving horses. There he was to continue to nurture that love and ride.
Tex was a character, his very own character, and was never afraid of showing himself to the world in the things he said and did. He was strong, brave, enduring and loving. He enjoyed his friendships and loved to laugh.
Tex completed his circle of life on September 21, 2019 leaving sister, Eunice Bueligen, Dora (David) Bartow and Betty Hampleman; sister-in-law, Mary (Duane) Munder; brother-in-law, David Bartow; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his loving family, Parents, George and Grace; sister, Dorothy Jenson; brothers, George Jr., Willard, and Duane; brothers-in-law, Edwin Jenson, Roger Bueligen, and Tom Hampleman.
His Spirit is fondly remembered by his Elm Crest Family and many friends and family.
