ROBERT (BOBBY) FRANKLIN TEAGUE, JR. died peacefully at his home on July 6, 2013 after a courageous two and a half year battle with brain cancer. He was 74 years old.|
Bobby was born in Houston, Texas on August 23, 1938 to Frank (Red) and Dorothy Hogge Teague, who preceded him in death. He was also preceded in death by his daughter Sarah Lynn.
He graduated from Lamar High School and continued his studies at the University of Texas in Austin, where he was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon and graduated with a BBA in 1961. While attending UT, Bobby met Judith Ann Wood on a blind date and they were married nine months later. After graduation, Bobby went to work for Tennessee Gas as a budget analyst. He went on to work for Arthur Young and Company (Ernst and Young) from 1964 to 1980, making partner in 1975. In 1981, he along with Eddie Harrell and Louis Stipp founded Citation Oil & Gas, where he was the CFO until his retirement in 2002. He was extremely proud of the growth and success of the company during his 20 years there.
Bobby was a devoted fan of "The Horns" at UT and supported many of their foundations. While he followed all UT sports, he especially looked forward to the beginning of each football season, attending almost all home games and often traveling to out of town games. He was also an avid outdoorsman, enjoying salt water fishing and duck, dove and quail hunting with many good friends and his loyal dog, Lily always by his side. He and Judy loved traveling with friends to Argentina, Europe, Alaska, China and most memorably on an African photographic safari. But some of his favorite days were spent with family and friends in Rockport and New Braunfels.
Bobby was a compassionate, loving husband and father who was always generous with family, friends and co-workers. He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Judy; his son, Rob Teague and wife Bess; his daughter, Amy Teague; his brother Billy and wife Joanie; his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Henry and Sherron Wood; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Weldon and Christa Butler; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Roger and Linda Wood. He also leaves behind two step grandchildren, Matthew and Melissa Molsberry as well as many loving nieces and nephews. Bobby will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
The family wishes to acknowledge and thank Dr. Daniel Lehane and Dr. Robert Parrish, as well Houston Hospice for the help they provided and to Marian, Etta Jean and Teska for their care and patience.
