Bertis Ray WARD
1949 – 2015

WARD, Bertis Ray

Bertis Ray Ward, 65, beloved husband, father and grandfather passed away of natural causes on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 in his hometown of Buda, Texas.

Bert was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather, as well as a devoted educator and great friend. He was well known for always being available to lend a helping hand and quality advice. Bert’s passions included fishing, camping and simply being around the lake with family and friends. If you knew Bert, you know he got a lot of satisfaction from working too. He always made himself available for his boys socially, professionally or extracurricular. Bert served his country in Vietnam and returned to devote his professional life to the plumbing and pipefitting trade. He was a reliable employee to many private contractors before retiring from the City of Austin as an Inspector. Aside from a full time career, Bert devoted his nights and many weekends to the education of others as a Coordinator and Distinguished Instructor of Local Union 286 as well as being a long time Mason. Bert was also a long time member of the Capital Rod and Gun Club on Lake Travis where his friendships and contributions will last forever.

Bert’s greatest joy in life was his grandson, Waylon, “Little Man”. Bert was preceded in death by his mother, Alma Dee Ward and father, Horace Ray Ward. He is survived by his wife, Susie and son, Kevin of Buda, son, Brad of Spicewood, brother, Robert and Cam Ward of Buda, sisters, Vickie Rhodes of Lampasas, Beverly and John Closson of San Marcos, Cathy Rochow of Dallas, Sandra Ward of Buda, as well as nieces Alicia, Natalie, Deanna, Brettany, Stephanie, Caitlin and nephew Jonathon, numerous other relatives, and a host of friends.

Bert embodied mentorship; he is gone, but will never be forgotten. The outpour of thoughts and prayers has been almost overwhelming, but is a true testament to the person he was and the depth to which he impacted so many people.

A Celebration of Bert’s Life will be held from Noon to 3:00 P.M., Saturday, January 31, 2015 at the Painted Horse Pavilion, 1750 S. FM 1626 in Buda, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, the family would like contributions to be made in Bert’s honor to the Wounded Warrior Project at www.woundedwarriorproject.org, at www.wish.org, or St. Jude’s Children’s Research at www.stjude.org.
