Robert Allen Easley, Jr. was born on May 5, 1933 in Houston, Texas, the son of Robert Allen Easley, Sr. and Bertha Irma (Bragdon) Easley. Bob graduated from Reagan HS, where he was a star football player and met the head cheerleader, the love of his life, Sadie.
He then attended Texas A&M University where he was a famous Junction Boy. A time in his life that later became a book and a movie. He coached at several high schools, but the highlight of his coaching career was starting the first football program in Chico, Texas. His next chapter was Real Estate. He always said “Finding a deal was like running a touchdown”. If you looked up entrepreneur in the dictionary, The Bull’s picture would be there. Some of the many jobs he held throughout his life were an ice cream soda jerk as a kid, and insurance salesman where he was a member of the million dollar round table (It was often said that he could sell air), he created an Easley medical bed, was a driver for Continental Trailways, and even had a garbage company where he and Sadie were the collectors… as well as too many more to mention. With his amazing work ethic he was never too good to do anything!!!!
Fishing was his after-work passion. He was up to flying to Canada or Alaska for an adventure or dropping a line in one of the many lakes at Solid Rock Ranch to catch a big mouth bass.
Robert Easley a true man of God, a legacy of love, a wonderful husband, a sweet daddy, a precious grandpa, a loving brother and a genuine friend, who lived each day deeply committed to the love of his life, his wife, Sadie Joyce. He was a second dad to many. Because he was an overcomer, his inspiration and encouragement sounded like this…“You got this!”, “I don’t want to hear the pain, I just want to see the baby.”, “Life is tough but you have to be tougher.”, “Pretty might get you in the room but it won’t keep you in there”, and “Don’t worry about it, just pray about it”. His hilarious sense of humor could have a crowd rolling on the floor. He was bigger than life and loved life.
The Bull was a prayer warrior. In every prayer he would say, “Let us not be timid about telling people about Jesus.” He expressed his gratitude every day for all that God had given him. He always felt that God was the true owner of everything he had blessed him with. Dad was an ordained deacon in every church he attended. Bob and Sadie were known for their generosity, if there was a need they wanted to fill it. Solid Rock Ranch serves as an instrument to provide the mission of their ministry, which includes helping veterans, first responders and families. Family was everything to him! Everybody was always welcome in his home, many times we didn’t even know who they were!
Bob passed away, surrounded by his family, during the early morning hours of Sunday, August 13, 2023 at his home in Carmine. “Well done thou good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of the Lord” Matthew 25:23
He was preceded in death by his son, Robert “Tiger” Easley, III and his beloved wife of nearly 70 years, Sadie Joyce Walker Easley.
