Clarence Wright
1921 - 2018

Clarence Wright Chachere (Tex) passed away at age 97 on Sunday, December 30, 2018.
Clarence was born August 23, 1921 in Houston, Texas to Ada and Louis Chachere. He graduated from Texas A&M in 1943 with a degree in Electrical Engineering and served four years during WWII in the US Army (where he earned the name “Tex”) and four additional years in reserve and was discharged in 1951 as Captain.
During his service, he met Marion B. Hastie of Motherwell, Scotland and they married on June 14, 1946. They moved to the US where Tex started his 37 year career with Gulf Oil. He held various positions in the Production Department, living in several states and overseas. Along the way they had two sons and two daughters. Their retirement years began in Horsehoe Bay, Texas in 1985. Marion passed away September 13, 1999. Tex married long-time friend Mae R. Bedgood May 2, 2002. Mae has a daughter and two sons from her previous marriage. Tex and Mae moved to Sun City in Georgetown, Texas and lived there for fourteen years before moving to an assisted living facility in Dallas earlier this year.
Tex had a passion for travel and exploring the world and took hundreds of photographs and made “scrapbooks” way before scrapbooking was cool! He loved spicy foods and food in general! In his retirement years he took up cooking and creating in the kitchen and was quite accomplished! He also took up golf and played the game well into his 90s. He made friends all over the world and it is easy to see why – he was full of joy and fun to be around and cracked corny jokes, even in his last days.
Tex is preceded in death by his parents Ada and Louis Chachere, his sister Margaret and her husband Carl Vilven.
He leaves behind his children, son Ronald Chachere and wife Kathy, their daughters and husbands and children: Katie and Mason Hester, Hollie and Rhett Bowen and their three children; son John Chachere and wife Lou and their daughter Carolyn; daughter Debbie Walker (whose husband was the late Elmo “Mo” Walker); daughter Cheryl and husband Aaron Lancaster and their children Bryce and Kyle.
He is survived by wife Mae Chachere, her daughter Pamela Jane (PJ) and husband Bill Clay; son Don Bedgood and wife Anne and their children Taylor and Liz and her son; Bob Bedgood and wife Cindy (CJ) and their daughters Michelle and Alexis.
