Robert E. (Bobby) Beatty, Jr. passed away on May 30, 2014 in San Antonio, Texas at the age of 89. He is preceded in death by his wife, Marilynn (Geisler) Beatty, sister Barbara (Beatty) Sullivan, and his parents Robert E. and Julia E. (Bodet) Beatty. Surviving family members include his niece Susan (Sullivan) Yvanovich and nephews Jay and Brian Sullivan. He was a graduate of Central Catholic High School and attended Texas A&M University where he was a member of the Corps of Cadets and Theta Xi fraternity. He later earned a B.S. in geology from the University of Texas at Austin. Subsequent military service included duty assignments in the United States Navy. He retired from the Texas Railroad Commission after 25 years of service as a Regional Director regulating Texas oil and gas production. His was very involved in the community spending most of his life residing in the Monte Vista Historical District within San Antonio. He enjoyed civic associations which included memberships in The Harp and Shamrock Society of Texas, San Antonio Conservation Society, and the South Texas Geological Society. Our Uncle Bobby had an irrepressible zest for life including a passion for fashion and travel. He met his wife Marilynn later in life and they traveled the world, sharing with us wonderful memories of their numerous trips and escapades. Together they were our historians passing down family legacies and a full appreciation for decorum, etiquette, and entertaining. The camaraderie of their conversations will be sorely missed; Uncle Bobby was the life of the party and he knew it! Visitation will be held on Monday, June 2nd beginning at 6:30 PM at Porter Loring on McCullough.
