I am Terri LeCompte.I am the daughter of Nick LeCompte and Shirlene LeCompte.Shirlene was his second wife and I know of 2 other children prior to me.I spoke with one, Nicky several years back.He was not aware of me, but apparently Nick was married several times.Nicky said there were about 6 children not counting me.
I did visit with Walter and his second wife Cleva when I was a child.I spoke with their daughter Ginger a couple of years ago at another relative's funeral.At that time Nick's mother Billye and a sister were still alive, living in Los Angeles and Las Vegas respectively.
My mother died when I was about 4, so her mother and her husband raised me.They both knew Nick most of their lives.He wasn't discussed much in our home, but he was a friend of my maternal grandmother's brother and the man that raised me and he were about the same age.
As I grew older, I asked about him.He was a good artist and painted signs and windows at rodeo time for money.He was an amateur saddle bronc rider and steer wrestler.I understand that he did time in Chino prison for manslaughter.I was told that he killed himself to avoid the brothers of the man he killed doing it for him.However, I also heard that they killed him.So I don't know.He was 38 at the time of his death in Lancaster, CA.
He has two half sisters, Phyllis and Ginger.I saw Cleva a few years ago, but I don'w know if she is still alive.
I was unaware of Walter's death until about 5 years ago.
That is about all I know. I would be interested in anything any one knows.
