Former Burnet County Precinct 2 Constable Veterans Services Officer Chuck Caraway has died. Services are at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 8 at First Baptist in Bertram.
Caraway, who lost his bid for re-election in 2012 after serving two four-year terms, died Wednesday in a Georgetown hospital, his friend and former deputy constable G. W. Francis said.
Caraway had been hospitalized for about two weeks, Francis said.
In addition to his constable duties, Caraway was a dedicated advocate for Burnet county's veterans.
He was the driving force behind the creation of the VetRides program that provides transportation for Burnet and Llano county veterans who are no longer able to drive or who lack the means to get to medical and administrative appointments in Austin, Killeen, Georgetown and elsewhere in Central Texas.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
