Baker City, Oregon Maurice Charles Hurd, 86, of Lindsay, Texas, a former longtime Baker City resident, died Oct. 3, 2004, at his home. His graveside funeral with honors will be at 2 p.m. Friday at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery. Pastor Billy Ledbetter of the First Baptist Church of Muenster, Texas, will officiate. Maurice was born on March 1, 1918, at Ekalaka, Mont., to Wallace and Hazel Kinsey Hurd. He married Marcella Mae Dotson on March 26, 1950, at Sidney, Mont. The couple had three daughters: Susan, Maureen and Laurie. In his youth, Maurice worked on his father’s ranch herding sheep and cattle, haying and performing other ranching duties. He would often be hired out to work on other ranches, performing similar tasks. Once in 1936, he was hired to put up Russian thistle for hay in North Dakota. It was also in 1936 that Maurice joined the Civilian Conservation Corps. Through the CCC he worked on road construction through Roosevelt State Park in North Dakota, and served as a hospital orderly and a radio operator. The last job carried over into his service in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He enlisted in the Navy in December 1939 and served as radioman 3rd Class. He served aboard the USS Houston, which sank after being torpedoed in the Battle of the Java Sea on Feb. 28, 1942. Maurice and the other survivors were captured by the Japanese and spent 3 years as prisoners of war. During that time Maurice worked to build a railroad through the Burma jungle, replanted a rubber plantation, and later mined coal in Japan....
