Tushek, John Rudolph

John Rudolph Tushek, 77, passed away on June 5, 2018, in Lake Jackson, Texas, after a lengthy and courageous battle with Parkinson’s disease. John was born on April 1st, 1941, in San Antonio, Texas. He grew up in San Marcos, Texas, attending school in San Marcos and graduating from San Marcos High School in 1959. 

After high school, John attended the University of Texas, receiving his Civil Engineering Degree in 1964. He then worked for DOW Chemical Company in Lake Jackson. After retiring from DOW, he worked for a private engineering firm. Always available to encourage youth who were interested in engineering, he often spoke to youth groups and organizations. His expertise often made him the “go-to” guy for complicated engineering projects, both at DOW and in civic projects. In addition to his engineering prowess, John is remembered for his sense of humor, his love of fishing, and his being a master grill-chef for wonderful steaks and shrimp.


John is survived by his wife, Charlice (Doyle), his high school and lifetime sweetheart. Survivors in addition to his wife and caregiver are his grandchildren, Will and Ainsley Burnett; and by his son-in-law, Bill Burnett, of Dripping Springs, Texas.


He was preceded in death by their daughter, Charelle Burnett, who passed away in 2011. He is also preceded in death by his parents, R.R. and Fay Tushek.

Taylor, Clyde Gene

The fine spirit of Clyde Gene Taylor returned to God who gave it on May 30, 2018, his 80th birthday, closing the circle of this life. Memorial services will be held Saturday, June 16, 2018, at 3 p.m. at Grace Avenue Methodist Church in Frisco, Texas. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Grace Avenue, Gene’s church.

Gene and his twin sister, Janis, were born in 1938 to Clyde B. and Vera Wakeland Taylor of Waxahachie, Texas. Growing up a farm boy instilled principles of character, hard work, and commitment to church that would mark Gene’s life. Vera, a music teacher and church organist, passed on to Gene an extraordinary musical talent. Gene had what musicians call “perfect pitch.” A beautiful tenor soloist, he was a church choir member his entire life. He relished a cappella music, especially barbershop quartets, singing several years with The Men of Note chorus in north Dallas. He also organized, arranged and directed music for the men’s chorus at church. Gene could hear a song once and sit down at a piano keyboard and play it. Evenings at the Taylor household were filled with the joyous melody of Gene playing and singing a jazzy “Scotch and Soda” or “Yesterday” by the Beatles, or hymns from the Methodist Cokesbury Hymnal. Gene gave the gift of music to a generation of young Sunday Schoolers at the United Methodist Church in Lake Jackson, Texas.

Tall and graceful, Gene lettered in football, basketball, baseball and track at Waxahachie High School. When a season ended, he would turn in one uniform for the next. Later in life, Gene provided formidable competition on the handball and racquetball courts, hammered homers on the work softball team, flicked flies with a fishing rod in Colorado, and put many miles on his bike.

Intending to play baseball for Southern Methodist University, Gene’s class schedule for Chemistry proved rigid, and as he did throughout his life Gene made a sensible choice. He earned Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Chemistry from SMU, where he was also active in the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. He then worked over 30 years as a chemist at Dow Chemical in Freeport, Texas.

Gene married his first wife, Dorothy (“Dee Dee”) Watts in August 1963. They had two children during their 25-year marriage and lived in Lake Jackson, Texas. Gene was a devoted family man and always encouraged and attended his children’s educational, sports and musical pursuits. After reconnecting at their 30 year college reunion, Gene married Ann Newman Doyle in 1992. He retired from Dow Chemical in 1994, and he and Ann moved to Frisco, Texas in 2007. Together they enjoyed their children and grandchildren, travel, and time with friends.


To all his friends and family, Gene will be remembered as a man of great character and quiet strength.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Gene is survived by his wife, Ann; his son, David Taylor and wife, Kristi, of The Woodlands, Texas; and daughter, Karen Quast and husband, Tim, of Denver, Colorado. Gene is also survived by Ann’s daughters, Laura Milton and husband, Randy, of Little Elm, Texas, and Catherine Remmele and husband, Gary, of Plano, Texas; six grandchildren; and twin sister, Janis York and husband, Michael, of Las Colinas, Texas.

Cosby, Bing "Bingo" Edward


Bingo passed away on May 6, 2018 in Lake Jackson, TX, at the age of 71. He was with his wife, Carroll Jane Cosby; his brother Johnny Cosby and friends.


He is survived by his wife, Carroll Jane Cosby (Surfside); brother, Johnny William Cosby (Surfside); sons and family, Bing and Deirdre Cosby Jr (California), and their children, Kalia, Hana and Bingo III; Gabriel and Lindsey Cosby (California); and locally by his aunt Shirley Daigle; nieces Karen Hernandez, Lindsey Daigle, Tova Heimeyer; cousins, Rod and Jimmy Daigle; nephews, Jacob Flowers and Phillip Heimeyer; and many other family and friends.


Bingo grew up in Surfside with his two brothers and sister, working in his mom and dad’s grocery store at the beach. Between fishing, horses and surfing, his siblings and he enjoyed their playground.


Due to the early 60s boom of surfing, and with those surfboards his dad gave him and his brother, surfing became his life. Surfing and the wild culture of the ‘60s took over and before long, Bingo knew he had to turn his life over to God and change his ways if he wanted to continue to stay on this earth.


With a new faith and the desire to help and share the story of Jesus’ forgiveness and love to everyone, Bingo became a lifelong missionary for Christ. With his surfboard in his arm and his wife and kids along side, Bingo’s missions took him to Mexico, Panama, Brazil, Hawaii and eventually back home to Texas. He lived and owned surf shops in Texas, California, Peru and Hawaii which helped him to interact with all types of people and share the good news of Jesus to all he came in contact with.


Bingo loved his family and surfing, and had a passion to help everyone who needed it. He would spend hours with anyone who was in need and gave them food, clothes, friendship and faith, whatever they needed.

Quirk, Donna Jean Williamson


Donna Jean Quirk went home to be with her Lord and Savior on May 4, 2018. Donna was born on January 9th, 1941, to Donald Leonard Williamson and Alberta Ruby Eberwein Williamson in Rochester, NY. She lived in that area, primarily Brockport, until age 8 when, with her new step-father, Raymond Seifert, her Mom, her brother, Gary and step-siblings the westward trek began. From New York to Texas to Colorado to Nevada to California.


It was while she was living in California she met the love of her life, Thomas L Quirk whom she married on April 25, 1959.


Donna was preceded in death by her son, Scott Anthony Quirk; her mother, Ruby Seifert; her step-father, Raymond Seifert; and her father, Don Williamson.


Donna is survived by her husband of 59 years, Thomas L. Quirk of Bay City, TX; son, Thomas L, Quirk Jr. (Barbara) of Pflugerville, TX; daughter, Jeanna Lynn Thompson of Bay City; daughter-in-law, Barbara Burnell Quirk currently of Temple, TX; brother, Gary C. Williamson (Lisa) of Richards, TX; grandson/adopted son, Alex Quirk of Bay City, TX; plus six more grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.


Donna loved her family: none were too old for her to worry about or fret over. She loved the LORD her God with all her heart, and all her soul and all her mind and that love extended to her neighbor as well. She in turn was an easy person to love; her ready smile; her sincere concern for others and the way she put people at ease – there was no guile about her. Donna loved worshiping the Lord – whether through music (she had a beautiful alto voice), Pastoral care of shut-ins, Bible study or participating in the Lord’s Supper – she gave it her all. A long time member of Bay City First Christian Church, she was an Elder at its closing in January 2015.


Donna also loved working in her yard and caring for her potted plants. Earlier she had been an avid square dancer and enjoyed attending dances all over Texas. What she liked most about square dancing was the dancers. She often remarked they were the some of the nicest people she ever met.


Her family extends a loving thank you to the wonderful folks at Houston Hospice – El Campo Branch. We don’t know what we would have done without you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


A memorial service will be held at Van Vleck First United Methodist Church in Van Vleck, TX on Friday, May 11, 2018, at 11 a.m., the Reverend Kenny Carter officiating.


In lieu of flowers, Donna requested that memorial donations be made to either Van Vleck FUMC or to Houston Hospice – El Campo Branch.


Honorary pallbearers include Jacob Barnes, Jason Quirk, Rylan Bedingfield, Jaxon Bedingfield, Cason Bedingfield, Reid Henderson and Jaryn Wilson – all great-grandsons.
