TX. He grew up on Aster Street in the Riverside area as an
active member of Oakhurst Presbyterian Church. He attended
Oakhurst Elementary School and Riverside Junior High, and he was
graduated from Amon Carter High School. Upon graduation, his
family moved in 1957 to Little Rock.
He attended Texas Tech University and Little Rock University,
later the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He and a friend
designed the official seal for Little Rock University. He
supported himself with various jobs during college, but never
allowed work to interfere with his social life. He was a member
of Phi Alpha Beta Fraternity, later Sigma Alpha Epsilon. He
spent so many hours playing bridge in the student union that he
said he should have a degree in bridge.
Kirk served six years in the Arkansas National Guard, and his
first full-time job was a salesman for the Frank Lyon Company in
Little Rock. He was transferred to Shreveport, then joined
Woolco Department Stores before being transferred to Dallas’ new
Northtown Mall Woolco major appliance department. The quality of
RCA products lured him to Adleta Company, where he was regional
salesman, also later working as regional salesmen for Interstate
Electric Company and the Thompson Company. He spent 39 great
years at North Texas Area TV and Appliance Dealers working with
“mom and pop” dealers. He enjoyed making a sale and many
friendships, known for his firm handshake and wide grin.
In 1966, when Kirk married Clare Bearden Connally, the daughter
of a Methodist minister, he decided it best to become Methodist.
He was an active member of Chapel Hill United Methodist where
that ready smile and handshake served in many ways.
In retirement, he thrived through community service, including
Farmers Branch City Council. His congenial nature was shared
with Farmers Branch Planning and Zoning Committee, Metrocrest
Family Medical Clinic Board and Farmers Branch Historical Park,
often portraying one of the area’s first doctors.
Keeping up with friends was a priority. Kirk’s routine included
men’s Tuesday breakfasts, Wednesday lunches and Thursday Morning
Most important, though, was his family, especially his daughter
Kim. Husband, father and grandfather, Kirk enjoyed taking family
trips and caring for his widowed mother and her bachelor

Clyde Roger Mayes, Jr. '58
a short illness, Clyde Roger Mayes, Jr. quietly passed
away of natural causes in a hospital bed with the love of his
life, Sharon Schieffer Mayes at his side. He was 80 years old.
The only child of Clyde Roger Mayes, Sr. and Nanette Hardisty,
Roger had a good and long life with many adventures and
Roger and Sharon were married 39 years. The couple loved to
travel all over the United States, Europe and Asia. Often, they
wound up in New Orleans where they would celebrate an
anniversary with dinner at Antoine's. To escape the Texas heat
they liked to visit Maine in the summer with an itinerary that
they laughed was based on the towns and villages with the best
lobster pounds and the tastiest ice cream.
Roger proudly served our country as a Navy Lieutenant in the
Vietnam War and extended his three-year commitment to five for
shore duty in Japan during the 1960's. He never forgot the honor
of wearing the uniform and deeply respected those in the
military for all the sacrifices they make in their service to
Faith played a large role in Roger's life. For 45 years he
served as a Lay Eucharistic Minister at St Stephen's Anglican
Church in Hurst. He practiced his faith in his daily life.
Roger had a particularly soft spot in his heart for kids,
perhaps because he had lost his own father when he was only 8
years old. Roger had a very positive impact on the lives of
Amanda Lawrence who called him her substitute father, Marty
Arnevias who thought of him as another Dad and his son, young
Patrick Arnevias who had lost his mother to cancer as a toddler.
Patrick liked to call him his substitute Grandpa. The homeless,
Native Americans living on reservations and the Humane Society
also found a friend in Roger.
The children at Shriner's
also a special cause in his life. A member of the Moslah Temple
Shrine Patrol in Fort Worth, Roger enjoyed the brotherhood of
the Shriners' Circus. He took delight in selling ads for the
program and the yearly street collection to raise money for the
kids at the hospitals. One year Roger used his lifelong career
in sales to good advantage. A motorist stopped at an
intersection where he and other Shriners were making their
pitch, when one fellow rolled down his window and said his
grandson was saved by his stay at the Shriner Hospital, but no
one ever got a bill. "Sir," Roger said, "no parent or
grandparent ever receives a bill for their child from a Shrine
Hospital. That's why we have this annual collection drive for
The fellow asked him to hold on a minute while he pulled to the
side of the road. He came back a few minutes later and handed
Roger a check for $1,500 for the Shriner Hospital. Roger liked
to say that was the best sale he ever made in his life.
Roger very much enjoyed the camaraderie of the Shrine as well.
In 1998 after he had been elected Captain of the Moslah Patrol
they won the State Championship under his leadership. It was a
proud moment. Later, he would be awarded the Lifetime
Achievement Award in 2014 for his work in the Shrine. Another
very proud moment in his life.
If there was any one thing that marked Roger throughout his life
it was his work ethic.
He was a doer at a very early age. A lifeguard who taught
swimming, a caddy at Meadowbrook golf course who traded work
around the golf shop for lessons that would lead to his winning
the Fort Worth City Junior Championship, and a life-long love of
golf. Roger worked at whatever he did. In high school he became
a starting tackle on the Carter Riverside football team. Roger
was a popular teammate who never forgot where he came from. He
continued to enjoy reunions with "The Committee" a group of
Carter Riverside graduates who remained in close contact
throughout their lives. Roger went on to earn a degree at Texas
Tech University where he was a member of the Sigma Nu
A good husband, a good sailor, a good mentor, a good friend, a
good man, with a good sense of humor and a big and loving heart,
Roger Mayes life will be celebrated at St. Stephen's Anglican
Church, 7452 Precinct Line Road on Monday, July 5th at 2:00 pm.
Following the service he will be laid to rest next to his
beloved father in Mt. Olivet Cemetery, 2301 N. Sylvania in Fort
He is survived by his wife, Sharon Schieffer Mayes; his
brothers-in-law, Bob and Tom Schieffer; his sisters-in-law, Pat

Worth, Texas on December 29, 1939. She graduated from Carter
Riverside Highschool in 1958. She then married her incredible
husband, Dwayne Littlepage until he passed in 2008.
Sallie was a long
time Meals on Wheels volunteer and was a member of New Riverside
United Methodist Church. Not only was she a caring member of her
community, but she was also a very loving friend, sister, mother
and grandmother. Throughout her life, Sallie battled many
challenges, but was always able to smile and laugh throughout
the rough times. She was such a caring mother and grandmother
even until her final days.

for many, and her memory and kindness will live in everyone's
hearts. Sallie made such an impact on many people's lives. She

live a life of good faith. Her love, joy and faith allowed her
to be an amazing mother and a wonderful member of her community.

as her son, daughter, and brother.
Susan Appleby Nix '66
Worth, Texas - Longtime Fort Worth business and civic leader and
TCU champion, Susan Appleby Nix, died Thursday, Nov. 26 from
complications of COVID-19.
Nix, 72, was the founder of Susan Nix
Consulting Group and recognized as one of the most tenured and
respected civic and corporate professionals in the Dallas-Fort
Worth area. She was involved in a wide range of projects and
organizations, including the 2011 Super Bowl, the Bell
Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, Colonial Country Club, TCU, the
American Heart Association, Easter Seals and many others.
Susan was known for her big smile,
boundless and infectious enthusiasm, a great sense of humor and
also for her tough, clear-minded business sense. She shared the
knowledge she had gleaned from a life well-lived freely and
openly with her friends, family and business associates as well
as with students.
"The TCU family is deeply saddened to
hear of the loss of Susan, a beloved alumna and community
leader," said TCU Chancellor Victor J. Boschini Jr. "She
dedicated her life to lifting up those around her and
strengthened the community initiatives she supported. Susan was
one of those people who was always thinking of others and was a
true servant leader. Her impact on Fort Worth, and all those who
had the pleasure of knowing and working with her, will not be
Business leaders recalled how they
were impacted by their interactions with Susan.
"It is a sad day for Fort Worth and
for those of us who were touched by Susan," said Fort Worth
entrepreneur Victoria Wise. "She made everyone she met feel
special, and her enthusiasm, support, and love will be truly
She was born in Germany and raised in New Jersey as a child.
After that she moved to Fort Worth and graduated from Carter
Riverside High School before attending Texas Christian
University. She was Miss TCU her senior year and married Kent
Nix, TCU's star quarterback who also played in the NFL from 1966
TCU was a constant throughout her
life. Susan Nix remained connected with TCU throughout her
career and she supported her beloved Horned Frogs. She was a
member of TCU's National Alumni Board from 1980 to 1998.
"TCU and the TCU Alumni Association
are deeply saddened to learn of Susan's death," said Amanda
Stallings, TCU Associate Vice Chancellor for Alumni Relations.
"Susan answered every call for help from friends, the University
and the Alumni Association, then asked what more she could do.
She led from her heart and from her deep faith in God. She gave
her all to everything she believed in and served with fervent
energy and love."
Susan's faith was important to her. The family's social media
post of her passing quoted 1 Peter 5:10:
"And the God of all grace, who called
you to his eternal glory In Christ, after you have suffered a
little while, will himself restore you and make you strong,
firm, and steadfast." She was deeply involved in the Fort Worth
business community, including working with the Fort Worth
Business Press on several projects.
"Many words describe Susan but the one that comes to mind is
'irrepressible,'" said Richard L. Connor, publisher and owner of
the Fort Worth Business Press. "You could add tenacious,
entrepreneurial, charming, and then highlight beautiful, loyal,
and kind. She loved Fort Worth, TCU, Dan and June Jenkins, and
her star quarterback husband, Kent, along with her family. She
had some devastating personal losses but never let the clouds
block the sun. She was a one-person force who – when she put her
mind and talents to a project – got it done."
In 2008, Susan was named a Great Woman
of Texas by the Fort Worth Business Press. Businesses large and
small sought Susan's advice. She was a longtime member of the
BBVA USA Fort Worth Advisory Board.
"We cannot express how much of a loss
this is for not only BBVA USA, but for our communities in
general," said Brian Happel, BBVA USA Fort Worth CEO. "Having
Susan serve on our Fort Worth Advisory Board for the last five
years was a great honor, and one that improved our organization
immensely. She was a sweet person who was always looking for
opportunities to support us and our mission. Personally, she was
also always very supportive of my professional success. For
that, I am forever grateful. I speak for the bank when I say we
will miss her and her kind-hearted spirit dearly."
In the political realm, Susan Nix was
a frequent supporter of community causes. Former Fort Worth
Mayor Ken Barr said Susan Nix was one of the most effervescent
people he ever knew. "Always upbeat, a real people person, and
possibly the best networker I've ever known. She never met a
group or crowd that she didn't enjoy," he said.
She was also close friends with
current Mayor Betsy Price.
Susan Nix was on many boards in Fort Worth, including several
associated with Colonial Country Club's PGA tournament. She
served on the executive council of the Lockheed Martin Armed
Forces Bowl from 2002 to 2020 and on the Goodyear Cotton Bowl
board from 2014 to 2017.
Susan's work with nonprofits was another area where she proved
successful, as a member of the American Heart Association board
and as chairwoman of the Easter Seals "Hats Off to Women" event
for several years. "I was absolutely stunned to learn of the
passing of our dear Susan," said Leah King, president and CEO of
United Way of Tarrant County. "Susan made everyone she
encountered feel like her favorite person in the world, and that
is evidenced by the hundreds of comments and outpouring of love
posted to her Facebook timeline. Our city, and certainly the
Colonial Country Club and PGA tournament won't be the same
without her presence."
A number of business leaders in Fort
Worth recalled how Susan Nix was key to their business and
personal success. "Our company was formed because of her,
because she told us to!" said Serene Fletcher, of Pugnacious,
recounting how a casual business lunch with Susan turned into a
business plan for a branding and public relations firm Fletcher
recently formed with Crystal Caldwell.
"We left that lunch and I looked at Crystal and said, 'you know
what just happened? We got spanked by Susan Nix.' After that day
she was Susan Sledgehammer "Sledge" - and she LOVED that
nickname by the way," said Fletcher.
Susan Nix is survived by husband,
Kent; daughter, Kendall Nix Walton; son, Kory Nix; and four
grandchildren. Her daughter, Krista Nix Utley died in 2011.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the
Recovery Resource Council, Fort Worth Leader X Change or
"something close to your heart," as Susan would have loved that.
Private services will be on Tuesday, Dec. 1, at Greenwood
Funeral Home. The family is planning a celebration of life
service at a later date when the time is appropriate.

18, 2020, in Arlington.
Memorial Service: 11 a.m. Saturday, November 14, at Wade Family
Funeral Home, 4140 W. Pioneer Parkway, Arlington.
Sharon was born on July 31, 1952 in Fort
Worth, Texas to Gordon Winfield Mauldin and Mary Margaret Gragg
She retired from the H-E-B ISD after 37
years of service. Sharon had attained a Bachelor of Arts and
Master of Education.
Survivors: Daughter, Aubrey Dudley and
husband, Josh; former husband, James Munger; grandchildren,
Damian Dudley, Iris Dudley, Esamae Dudley, and Emberly Kirk;
brother, James Mauldin and wife, Judy; nieces, Polly McLean and
Michelle Mauldin, and their children.
Patsy Bonita Burks Cox '48
Worth, Texas - Patsy Bonita (Burks) Cox was born October 10,
1930, to Edwin Morrison Burks and Bonnie Alice Burks. Patsy went
to sleep and woke up in the presence of her Lord on November 7,
2020. She was 90 years old.
Patsy graduated from Carter-Riverside
High School and attended junior college after graduation and
later left for a position at a local bank. Later, she was
employed by the Birdville ISD where she retired from. She met
the love of her life, Robert L. Cox and they married in June
1952. They had two children, Robert Edwin and Bonnie Vivian.
Robert and Patsy were married for 68 years.
Church and singing Gospel music was
one of her passions, along with performing in musicals and
pageants. Patsy was also very active in her Sunday Morning Bible
Study group. Perhaps her largest love was for her grandchildren
and great-grandchildren as she attended their sports events and
stock show competitions. She was known to be a bit of a
competitor herself as she loved fishing and wanted her fishing
rod ready to make that first and final cast to catch that Big
One before anyone else could.
There was no doubt she had the gift of
hospitality and always cared for others before herself. She
always greeted you with a smile and would tell you she was glad
to see you and welcoming like no other. When you came to her
home she always served you making sure your plate and drink was
always full. Her spirit never allowed her to say a bad word
about anyone and she always looked for the best in folks. She
will be greatly missed.
She is preceded in death by her
She is survived by her husband,
Robert; her son and his wife; her daughter and her husband; six
grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
A Celebration of Life service was held
by the family.

Donald Edward Cartwright, Jr.
RICHLAND HILLS--Donald Edward Cartwright, Jr. aka Don
Cartwright, 83, passed away on Tuesday evening, November 10,
2020. He was born to Donald and Elizabeth Cartwright in Fort
Worth on June 16, 1937. He became active in the US Coast Guard
from 1958 - 1962.
He met his bride to be, Nancy
Mitchell, at a local hangout, Jack's Club on Mansfield Hwy in
Fort Worth. During a leave, he married Nancy on August 9th,
1960. They then moved to Provincetown, Massachusetts for his
Coast Guard duties and had their first child, a son, Craig
Edward Cartwright, born February 14, 1962.
After being stationed in "Cape Cod"
for two years, they moved back to Fort Worth and he began a
career at what was then known as "Texas Electric." A couple of
years later, they had their second child, a daughter, Kelly Sue
Cartwright. As the kids were a little older, they spent lots of
family outings, many upon many weekends and summer holidays
camping, boating and fishing at Eagle Mountain Lake.
Don was known as the "king" of the
park with his famous fish fries and his incredible fried
biscuits. Don and Nancy were able to travel frequently with her
work and met tons of beloved friends. They also abundantly
traveled with their daughter and son-in-law and their two
grandchildren, Zach and Taylor.
At 55, Don was able to take early
retirement. He was so excited about this and enjoyed his
retirement immensely. He had a full life of travel, golf and
piddling in his garage. He spent most of his time golfing
everyday with his buddies at Iron Horse Golf Course and then
enjoyed a Miller Lite or two afterwards in the club house.
Don was a loving husband to his wife
of 60 years and a wonderful dad and daddy to his two children,
and a fun loving "abba" to his two grandchildren, Zach and
Taylor. His family always came first and he was their "rock" and
gave them an amazing life. The memories of him will be cherished
and he will always be in our hearts until one day we see him
Don was preceded in death by his
precious son, Craig Cartwright; his mother, Elizabeth
Cartwright; and his father, Don Cartwright, Sr.
His survivors include his wife, Nancy
Cartwright; his daughter, Kelly Cartwright Thompson; his
grandson, Zach Thompson; his granddaughter, Taylor Thompson; and
many, many friends.

Richard Banowsky '51
Richard Richard Lowell ("Dick") Banowsky passed away on October
14, 2020. He was born on June 21, 1934 in Abilene, Texas to
Thelma Slater Banowsky and Wade Lowell Banowsky. After
graduating from Ft. Worth Carter Riverside and Abilene Christian
University, he enlisted as an officer in the US Navy, serving as
a flight navigator and a JAG officer in Honolulu. After his
naval service, he attended dental school, graduating from Baylor
College of Dentistry in 1965. He practiced in Irving, Texas for
almost twenty years. During this time, he also served twelve
years as a trustee on the Irving ISD School Board, three as
President of the Board.
In his first "retirement," Dr.
Banowsky opened a dental practice in Quitman, Texas and then
established a cattle and Christmas tree farm nearby, a business
which he enjoyed running with his family for several years. On
the farm, he was fond of telling his visiting grandkids, "There
is only one rule at the farm, and that is there are no rules at
the farm." The grandchildren will never forget the fun and
adventure they enjoyed at the farm with their grandparents.
He "retired" again in 1990, but soon
found that the many hours of work he put into his farm wasn't
enough, so he began to work as a dentist for the Texas
Department of Criminal Justice nearby. Twelve years later he
finally retired. A lifelong member of the Church of Christ, Dr.
Banowsky served as a deacon of Central Church of Christ in
Irving, and as an elder of the Holly Lake Church of Christ. He
was an enthusiastic supporter of Camp Deer Run, a Church of
Christ youth camp located near his farm.
Dr. Banowsky accomplished a number of
admirable things in his life, but he always recognized that he
couldn't have done any of them without the help and support of
his wife of almost 65 years, Anne Compton Banowsky. They
complemented each other in all the right ways, and the
uniqueness and completeness of their partnership was clear to
anyone who spent time with them.
Dr. Banowsky was predeceased by his
parents and his brother, William S. (Bill) Banowsky. Dr.
Banowsky is survived by his wife, Anne; three sons and their
spouses: Bill and Susan Banowsky, Jim and Teresa Banowsky and
Kurt and Angela Banowsky; six grandchildren and their spouses:
William and Callie Banowsky, Robert and Vicky Banowsky, Benton
Banowsky, Anna Banowsky, Sarah and Kylar Christison, and Hannah
and Evan Kauper; and four great-grandchildren: Blair Banowsky,
William Banowsky, Cody Christison and Zoe Christison. He is also
survived by his sisters Nancy Myers and Martha Sherman,
sister-in-law Gay Banowsky, brother-in-law David Compton of
Athens, Georgia, and numerous nieces and nephews and their
Visitation will be at Bluebonnet Hills
Funeral Home in Colleyville at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 17,
followed by an interment in the family memorial garden at
Bluebonnet Hills Cemetery at 2 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be
made to Camp Deer Run in Winnsboro, Texas (campdeerrun.com). The
family would like to give special thanks to the caregivers at
The Avenues of Park Forest in Dallas, for the kind and gentle
care and friendship they provided over the last several months.
