Dane Earl Carruth, 58, passed away October 24, 2018. He will
be honored with a private service in Wimberley, Texas.
Dane was born in Borger, TX on December 15, 1959 to
Raymond Andrew Carruth and Maxine (Houchin) Carruth. Dane
spent his early years working as a cowboy on many historical
ranches including the Lazy B Ranch in Arizona where his son
Raymond Clegg Carruth was born in December of 1978. He
then moved back to Canadian Texas where his daughter Annie
Nicole Carruth would be born in early 1981. Dane then made his
transition to McAllen Texas where he would prove to be a very
accomplished insurance salesman for Carruth Insurance Agency.
He worked along side his 3 siblings and their families in the
insurance business, carrying on a tradition laid in front of them
by their grandfather and father. Dane continued his career in
insurance and ranching until his death. He was an avid outdoors
man. He loved to fish, hunt, team rope, play golf, and travel. He
also loved a good horse and a good bird dog. He lived life in a
big way, he enjoyed people, and loved to dance. His boisterous
personality could always be seen, but especially when telling a
story or a joke.
In 2014 Dane married Stacy Lewis in Fort Worth, Texas. They
lived in Waelder, Texas where Dane enjoyed raising cattle and
was a member of the Waelder Elders. They then bought their
dream home on a ranch in San Marcos, Texas where Dane lived
until his death.
Dane is survived by his wife Stacy of the home, his mother
Maxine Carruth of McAllen, son Clegg Carruth and wife
Michelle of Midland, TX, Daughter Annie Cleavinger and

Carruth, three nephews Cody Carruth of Austin, TX, Cash
Carruth of Bloomfield, NM, Zach Farley of Albuquerque, NM
and one niece Kassi Rohlack of Round Rock, TX.

Carruth and a brother David Andrew Carruth.
