Boer Pioneer Walter Pope Dies

Walter C. Pope III, 76, of Sonora, died Monday, Dec. 23, 2002.

Mr. Pope was instrumental in the development of the Boer goat industry in the United States. He was the first Vice President of the American Boer Goat Association and served three years as a member of the Board of Directors.

He realized early on the tremendous impact that the Boer could have on the US meat goat. He was one of the first to convert a commercial meat goat operation to a Boer based system. The success of his own operation and the current health of the Boer industry are testaments to his faith in and utilization of this new breed.

Many successful breeders of Boer goats owe their entry into the industry to the selfless assistance of Mr. Pope.

Service will be at 10 a.m. Friday at St. John's Episcopal Church in Sonora with burial in Sonora Cemetery. Arrangements are by Johnson's Funeral Home in San Angelo, Texas.

Mr. Pope is survived by his wife, Dorothy Wilson Pope of Sonora; and children, Janet Pope Andrews of Midland, Cora Pope McGowan of San Angelo and Walter Cason Pope IV of Sonora.
