Robert Allen Beago- Baseball 1952
Robert “Bob” Allen Beago, age 88, passed away peacefully on September 26, 2021 with his loving family by his side. Robert Allen Beago was born March 25, 1933 in Houston, Texas to Bonnie and Victor Beago.
Bob grew up in Houston, Texas, and from an early age showed his entrepreneurial spirit, work ethic, and natural athletic ability. Bob graduated from Jeff Davis High School playing football and baseball, with All City Honors and Letterman’s Club in 1948 – 1950. Bob attended Baylor University, played baseball for his beloved Baylor Bears, and graduated in 1955 with a B.S. in Physical Education. He served in the U.S. Army from 1956 to 1958 with an honorable discharge, then Bob started his insurance career at Liberty Mutual in Houston.
While working for Liberty Mutual, he “invited himself” to lunch with his co-worker, Kathryn and her sister, Harriet Wilson. Bob was clearly smitten with Harriet and called her later that day and “talked her ear off”. The rest, as they say, is history. Bob and Harriet married on February 11, 1961 and welcomed son, Robert Clark, in Houston, daughter, Nancy Elizabeth, in Dallas, and daughter, Allison Vivian, in Boston.
Bob and Harriet made a wonderful life together for their family. They enjoyed traveling throughout the United States and abroad. Bob loved the mountains and enjoyed spending time with his family at the cabin Harriet and he built in Breckenridge. Bob’s most important legacy was his love for his family. His enduring love for Harriet was evident throughout their marriage and nothing made him happier than simply being by her side. Bob was so proud of his children and instilled in them his love for music, animals, and not taking yourself too seriously.
