I have fond memories of watching Cary play music with other musicians during my years at Brazoswood High School. We weren't close friends, but he was always a very nice person to others. I remember him being very talented musically. I am saddened that he has passed at such an early age and pray his is in heaven watching over us now, and enjoying playing music with some of the great musicians in heaven, such as Steve Ray Vaughn and more. My prayers are with his lovely wife and the rest of his family. ~Serena Kirby Formby

I think I must have first met Cary in Sunday School at the Methodist church in Lake Jackson. He was this little guy with a lot of drive. Independent, nonconformist -- Cary always blazed his own trail. That's what made him fun. I can remember watching one of the first episodes of Saturday Night Live with him at his house. I think the host was George Carlin. But we both thought the show that followed it was even better -- Monty Python's Flying Circus. We used to know their routines by heart. He and I did an 8th grade science project where we recreated a volcano erupting on Martinique. We spent weeks building this intricate miniature set of the island and volcano and then literally burnt it up. Unfortunately, I messed up loading the film in the double-8 camera and it was double exposed. I was ready to quit and go with what we had. But not Cary. No, we had to rebuild the whole set in about 3 days and burn it up again. In the end, I'm glad we did. The project turned out great. I could tell a myriad of stories like that, but there's not room for them all. I was lucky to visit Cary at the family cabin in Colorado on 4 different occasions. The last was to see him wed his lovely bride MeiLien. MeiLien I know you're hurting, and Jamie and my deepest sympathies go out to you, your family, and the Brock family. Knowing Cary and having him as a friend was a great blessing to me. I will not forget him.

Tom Munson, Brownwood, TX

My deepest condolences to the Brock and Yeh family.

Dear MeiLien and family, Scott and I have great memories of our time with Cary and you. Diving, 4-wheeling, sight seeing until 2am in Tangier. We will miss him. No more emails or phone calls setting up another big adventure and berating us if we could not comply! We are praying that God may be with you in the coming days. Scott and Mary Silver

But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18 NKJV)

My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family doing this difficult time

MeiLien...I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you-May God bless!

Our families have been connected for over 40 years. Cary was one of my closest friends from sixth grade to the present. A great memory is from Tincup, Colorado, at their cabin. It was late summer, with hints of approaching autumn in the air. Cary, MeiLien, Howard & Mary Brock, my brother Eric, and my Dad were nestled in the cabin, playing cards and dominoes until the wee hours of the morning. That weekend of fellowship in the mountains is very precious. Hugs to the family and see you next week.

The Caperton Family, Lake Jackson, TX

Cary was the type of guy anyone could sit down and have a long chat about every topic imaginable. I have wonderful memories of our long chats about things ranging from history to how to cook brisket. He loved to entertain! How many parties did you guys have on the deck? Must have been over a thousand, lol! So many fond memories. He will be missed.

Mindy Smith, Houston, TX

Cary will be so disappointed he missed this celebration, but maybe happy to have all his friends and loved one in the same spot telling Cary stories. Cary absolutely never met a stranger, and he was a great cook and host. My funniest memory of Cary was when I was mowing and he kinda liked the jungle-y affect of all the growing things in the yard I was decimating with the mower. He came flying to the edge of the deck and said "nooooooooo !!!!!!!". hahahahaha, that still makes me laugh (it grew back, btw). That and seeing Cary with a shovel on occasion, for dearly departed hamsters. I'd see him next door and say "oh, another one?", and he'd chuckle and say, "yep". Cary will be missed. Save us a place up there, huh Cary? We shall meet again. Thoughts and prayer for Mei Lien and Cary's family.

Cary Douglas Brock, 53, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving wife, parents in law, brother in law and close friends on March 26, 2014 in Houston, Texas.

Cary, a proud 5th generation Texan, was born on March 4, 1961 in Freeport, Texas to Howard and Mary Brock. Cary is preceded in death by his mother, Mary Brock. He is survived and loved by his wife, MeiLien Yeh, of nearly 19 years of marriage; father: Howard Brock; sister: Deborah Brock; brother: Kent H. Brock & wife Beth Allen-Brock; parents-in-law: Abraham and Anne Yeh; brothers-in-law: Chi Hwa and wife Cindy Yeh, Gideon Yeh, and Michael and wife Doris Yeh; as well as nieces and nephews: Ryan Brock, Lucas and Louie Yeh, Christine and Ellen Yeh, and Iris Yeh.

Cary graduated from Brazoswood High School in 1979; achieved B.S. in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 1985 and a B.S. in Geology from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin in 1988. Cary was very passionate and spiritually connected to geology in which he continued to pursue the geological sciences as a life-long hobby, academically and professionally in that Cary was accepted to the PhD program at the University of Florida Geoscience Dept in Gainesville, FL for the Fall of 2014.

Cary had his fun, wild side of being a drummer as Halsey Taylor for the Delinquents, punk rock band in the 80s in Austin, Texas during his college years in which he had the privilege of playing with Lester Bangs and at CBGB. He loved music in that he continued to be a great support to the music community. He was one of the voting members in the Grammys.

Cary met no strangers. Cary met and touched many people in different stages of his life. Cary lived his life to the fullest and by the Golden Rule. Fun, loving, kind, generous, optimistic, wonderful, special, unique, one of the kind, intelligent and creative were just few words to describe Cary.

Cary and his wife & companion, MeiLien Yeh, of nearly 19 years, enjoyed and loved their traveling and adventures all over the world that included lots of train rides in Europe, U.S., Mexico, Panama, & Canada; Eastern & Orient Express train from Singapore to Bangkok, and train ride from Cusco to Machu Picchu; lots of snow skiing in U.S., Swiss Alps, Austria, & Italy; lots of scuba diving off of U.S. West Coast, Gulf of Mexico, East coast, Caribbean, Mediterranean Sea, Sea of Aqaba, Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean & Andaman Sea. In addition, Cary enjoyed golfing and fishing and studying the geological sites of places wherever they traveled.

Cary will be dearly missed by his wife, his families from both Brock and Yeh and network of friends from all stages of his life as he joined his dear mother in heaven above.

Please join his friends and family for a celebration in his honor at Bradshaw-Carter from 3pm to 6pm on April 5th (Sat) with music by Anne McCue and Clouseaux.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to United Network for Organ Sharing at https://giveto.unos.org/unos_foundation
