Bruce Lee "Butch" McCord

May 24, 1946 - August 7, 2021

Bruce Lee “Butch” McCord, Jr., 75, of Port Neches, died Saturday, August 7, 2021, at Christus Southeast Texas – St. Elizabeth, Beaumont. He was born May 24, 1946, in Port Arthur, to Dovie McKinney McCord and Bruce Lee McCord, Sr.

Butch was a proud United States Air Force veteran having served during the Vietnam War. He graduated from Port Neches Groves High School in 1964. Butch helped design many homes in Port Neches and the surrounding area and he carved the original totem pole for the PNG Indians.

Butch loved his Harley and eating crawfish. He was known to tell the same stories over and over again. He was the type of man that never met a stranger, and you always knew where you stood with him. Above all else, his family was the most important thing to him.

When the family was asked for a quote or a phrase that Butch might be known for, they simply laughed and said, “well, we can’t give you one appropriate enough that wouldn’t make every reader blush.”

Survivors include his wife, Laurie McCord, of Port Neches; children, Alison McCord Ousterhout and husband, Britt, of Cedar Park; Kevin McCord and wife, Stephanie, of Austin; and Tyler McCord and wife, Monica, of Opelika, Alabama; stepchildren, Daniel Lindow and wife, Amanda, of Vidor and Brittney Steinkamp and husband, Cody, of Milford, Iowa; ten grandchildren; sisters, Patsy Wiggins and husband, Claude, of Nederland and Janell Loveday and husband, Bill, of Katy; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Dovie and Bruce McCord.

A memorial service for Mr. McCord will be 10:00 a.m., Saturday, August 14, 2021, at Encounter Church, 5300 Twin City Highway, Nederland. His cremation arrangements were handled through Broussard’s Crematorium, Beaumont, under the direction of Broussard’s, 505 North 12th Street, Nederland.

Bruce was a kind, generous man with a sharp wit & spoke his mind. His family was right about an appropriate quote but that was just Bruce. He will be sorely missed by his fa.imily & friends. And his buddy Scout, his sweet boy dog. I will always remember our political bouts. But in the end he was a very good friend. I'll miss his dry wit & sense of humor. Be at peace friend. Your illnesses are gone & you are at peace. I will keep your fa.miiy & friends in my thought & prayers.. ❤

I met Bruce in the late 80s. He was a character then and now. Later in life, Bruce would help me design homes I built in the SETX area. When I called or visited Bruce it was initially for house plans discussion but would quickly turn into a visit between friends. I messaged Laurie this morning to check on Bruce and learned of his passing, I am deeply saddened will miss his talent and friendship. Rest in peace Bruce,
