L. C. is survived by his loving wife, Jean, along with Glen and his wife, Renee, and Dean and his wife, Stacy. He is also survived by 3 wonderful grandchildren, Erik, Corinne, and Madison Nordt.
L. C. Nordt was postmaster for 26 years in Missouri City, Texas. During his career, He was elected President of the National League of Postmasters in Texas and served two terms. He was then elected to represent the Southern Region as Regional Coordinator where he served 3 years. He was awarded the highest honor a Postmaster could receive when in 1980 he was named “Postmaster of the Year” in Texas from the National League of Postmasters.
Through his tenure as postmaster he was also awarded four “Marketing Excellence Awards.” L. C. always credited his employees for the awards he received. He was especially proud of six of his employees who went on to become postmasters themselves. Later in life, because of health reasons, he asked to be transferred to the Brazoria post office and worked his last few years there.
L.C. was a veteran of the Korean War from 1950-1954. He was one of 12 airmen selected in the U.S.A.F. to attend and complete the Human Relations and Psychology school course taught by Washington University. He was Honorably Discharged in 1954 with a “Superior Character” rating.
When his sons were younger L. C. coached his sons’ little league baseball teams, and always took an active part in his family’s life. L.C. served as scoutmaster for troop 1001 in Missouri City, Tx for several years. Many of those young scouts kept in touch with L.C. through the years, and he was proud to see them grow up to be outstanding citizens.
He was active in the Oyster Creek Rotary Club and was in touch with the business community. L.C. served on the board of directors for Allied Bank & for Fort Bend Hospital in Missouri City.
Of all the many awards and accomplishments in his life, L. C. felt his greatest reward in life was when God gave Jean to him as his wife, and his love for his two sons, Glen & Dean.
