Jay Stantley Etheredge Obituary

Jay Stantley Etheredge, Houston, Texas, died May 24, 2018, at the age of 76 following a brief illness. He was born on September 1, 1941, in Rotan, Texas, to Pete and Hilda Etheredge. Jay graduated from Roscoe High School, Roscoe, Texas, in 1959, and earned a Bachelor's Degree from Texas Lutheran University in 1963 followed by a MBA from Texas Tech University in 1965. His devotion to Texas Lutheran continued throughout his life as a loyal, steadfast, and involved alumni.
Jay's professional career was highlighted by 25 years as Risk Manager for Conoco, which he thoroughly enjoyed. Throughout his life, his greatest joys were spending time with his family and watching sporting events. He took great pleasure in cheering on his hometown teams, the Astros and the Rockets, but his favorite events to watch were those in which his children and grandchildren were the athletes and performers. He always had a kind word, thoughtful suggestion, and encouraging hug afterwards. Jay was a member of Memorial Drive Lutheran Church, living out his faith and caring for his spiritual family in numerous positions throughout the years, including Sunday School teacher, Church Council leader, and usher.
Jay was preceded in death by his parents, Pete and Hilda Etheredge. He is survived by his son, Mark Etheredge and his wife, Kristen, of Southlake, Texas, and their children, Pete, Miriam, and Elise; by his daughter, Vicky Etheredge, of Houston, and her children, Dylan and Kelsey; and by his son, Steven Etheredge and his wife, Jacki, of Houston and their children, Owen and Erin. He is also survived by his brother, Cliff Etheredge and his wife Ann, of San Antonio, Texas.
A Memorial Service will be held at 3pm on Wednesday, May 30, 2018, in the Chapel of Memorial Oaks Funeral Home, 13001 Katy Freeway. Graveside services will be at 2 P.M. Saturday, June 2, 2018, at the Roscoe Cemetery with Bishop Eric Gronberg officiating. Interment will follow directed by McCoy Funeral Home.
