Ted R. Ashford Obituary
Teddy Ray Ashford, a devoted and respected husband, father, grandfather, and brother passed away peacefully on September 1, 2014, in Dallas. He was born March 2, 1930, in Seminole, Oklahoma to Sim and Alice "Sue" Ashford. He graduated from Stafford High School in Stafford, Kansas and Kansas State University in 1955. Ted married the love of his life, Bonnie Lou Metz in 1956. They began their 53-year marriage in Roswell, New Mexico, where Ted worked for Conoco Oil Company as a geophysicist. Ted's work with Conoco took them to many exciting and far away places (and some not so exciting), including Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Ted was with Texas Pacific, Chambers & Kennedy, Enstar, and Pelto Oil Co. before starting Pathfinder, an independent oil company in Houston. Ted was passionate about his church, his family, and his Kansas State Wildcats, and took in a football game every chance he got. He was an avid reader, and loved spending time with Bonnie and his 4 girls and their families, especially at their home at Horseshoe Bay. Ted's three brothers, his wife Bonnie Lou, and his youngest daughter, Laura, preceded him in death. Ted is survived by three daughters, Tina Jans of Dallas, Keri Tedford and her husband, Ted, of Dallas, and Shannon Kizer and her husband, Jay, of Ft. Worth; his loving grandchildren, Ashley Woodruff, her husband, Jerrod, and their child, Kellan, Nicolas and Christopher Jans, Madison and Elizabeth Tedford, and Jenner and Abby Kizer. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014, at 3:00, at The Church at Horseshoe Bay, 600 Hi Ridge Rd, Horseshoe Bay, TX. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Brookwood Community Endowment Fund, 1752 Farm to Market Road 1489, Brookshire, TX 77423.
