Bill’s Legacy Houston Chronicle


I have known Bill for more than 50 years, as a fraternity brother in our local chapter of  Kappa Phi at Lamar and
as a charter member when we were initiated as charter members of Sigma Chi  in 1961. He became my
insurance and investment counselor after I moved to Houston and later after I married and had children. Bill was
never one to be bashful, nor was he one to wait for something to happen. He was a man of action and a man of
his word. Many times he met with my wife and I to discuss our investments. He came to our house in Spring many
times. We learned to love him, not only as a true fraternity brother, but a very dependable adviser  and a true
friend. Bill Tarver, "All Honor to Your Name"!! In Hoc Signo Vinces. I love you my brother.

Bill was our social director at Lamar and he always planned and did everything right. If there was a job needing
done, you knew if Bill was in charge of it, it would be done right. Bill connected us up with Mr. Shelton and we
worked catering parties and earned money to rent the WOW hall. Bill reminded me of a Mississippi gambler or
perhaps Maverick at the time. As the years went by, Bill became a real family man and a true brother. He
accomplished much on this earth and now he has earned his eternal reward. To Maris and children we all share
your grief and thank you for being a real Sig wife all of these years.
May God
Be very near you
At this time
of deepest sorrow
To comfort you
and grant you strength
To meet
Each Tomorrow
