Robert Harold Felzke of Granbury, 84, peacefully passed away on Saturday, July 13, 2013 surrounded by his family.
He is survived by his wife, Mary; two daughters, Sue Felzke of Arlington, Va., and Kathy Terryah and husband Tim of Granbury; three grandchildren, Shawn Terryah and his wife Emma, Melissa Terryah, and Jaclynn Shively and her husband Zach.
Robert was born in Grand Ledge, Mich. on July 2, 1929. At the age of 17, he began his lifelong career for Oldsmobile. On June 27, 1953, he married Arlene Wagner and together they had two daughters, Sue and Kathy.
Robert dedicated himself to caring for his loving wife and raising his two daughters. He was a proud member of the UAW union and served as the 14th President before retiring in 1981 at the age of 52. Robert and his wife later moved to Granbury to be closer to family.
After his wife’s passing, Robert was blessed with finding love again. He married Mary Anderberg of Granbury in November of 2009. Though their time together was short, their years together were rich.
Robert loved his country and proudly flew his flag. He dearly loved God, his family, and was a very involved member of society. Robert was an active member of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Granbury. He was certainly not a shy person and made his position known on most subjects. He was a man of faith, as well as a man of honor.
He enjoyed the simple things in life and spent much time enjoying nature and traveling. He maintained lifelong friendships, all while enjoying making new friends, too.
Robert will be remembered as a strong, kind and caring person and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
A Memorial Service was held at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Granbury on Friday, July 19, 2013.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions in Robert’s memory be made to Acton Nature Center or to the MDS Foundation.
