OBT: Darryl Masters

Darryl William Masters

ROUND ROCK — It is with profound sadness that we as a whole family have lost a Loving Husband, a wonderful Dad, the world’s greatest Grandpa and a true authentic friend to many.

Darryl was such an embedded loved part of his family, and his sudden passing is both a deep loss and a rich reminder of just how special he was.

Darryl William Masters passed away at 61 years of age at his home in Round Rock, Texas. Darryl was born Feb. 15, 1947, in Comanche, Texas. He grew up in the Houston area, where he spent much of his time on a cattle ranch roping and riding. Darryl graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School, and following graduation, he entered the Air Force, where he served for four years both state side and abroad. Following his time in the service, Darryl moved to the Hill Country to be near family who lived in Harper and Fredericksburg. Darryl settled in Kerrville, where he met Alta, his wife of 32 years. For the majority of their marriage, they resided in Kerrville, Texas.

Darryl was very active in the community with coaching Little Dribblers basketball as well as coaching the AYSO soccer league. Darryl’s impression on the kids he worked with in the youth sports leagues carried on through many years. He stayed close to many of them, and they stayed in contact with him up until his passing. Darryl’s passion was his family as he considered those moments the most valuable. In all things they were involved with he was right there with them, and he always went out of his way to invest his time in spending it with his family. Darryl loved the game of golf and used it as a vehicle for spending quality time with his sons and close friends. Darryl brought love and joy to many, and we have truly been honored and blessed to have been part of his life.

Darryl is survived by his wife, Alta Masters of Round Rock; his mother, Laura Walker of Harper; his children, Chase Masters and wife, Erica, of Cedar Creek, Brian Masters and wife, Gina, of Austin, Becky Collins and husband, Chad, of Crowley; grandchildren, Kade, Kole and Kamry Masters, and Annabeth, Maddy and Macey Collins; brothers Scott Senior of Harper and Verlon Masters and wife, Mary, of Pipe Creek.

Memorial services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 31, at Faith Baptist Church in Round Rock, Texas. A meal will follow this memorial.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the AYSO soccer organization in Kerrville, Texas.

Arrangements are under the direction of Beck Funeral Home, 4765 Priem Lane, Pflugerville, Texas; (512) 259-1610.
