Joe David Assad
July 11, 1943 - August 22, 2014
Diagnosed with cancer three years ago, Joe Assad, born July 11, 1943 in Corpus Christi, TX, knew it was a "win-win" situation. If he beat it, he would stay here as a devoted husband to wife Debbie; loving father to daughters Katie and Betsy; philosophical father-in-law to Andy Jefferies; caring grandfather to Dade and Aidan; and mentor and wise counsel to family, friends, and everyone he met. If he didn't beat it, he would go home to be with his Savior Jesus Christ.
The Good Lord called him home on August 22, 2014, leaving a legacy as a faithful member of Houston's First Baptist Church, founding member of the International Texas Longhorn Association, and a committed and unique life insurance agent. His memory lives on in all who knew him so please join us in a celebration of his life.
The family will receive friends Monday, August 25, 2014 from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM in The Stateroom at Earthman Funeral Directors, 8303 Katy Freeway, Houston, Texas 77024.
The Celebration of Life Service will be Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 1:00 PM at Houston's First Baptist Church, 7401 Katy Freeway, Houston, Texas 77024. Private family interment.
Personal notes about Joe ---
Joe never did things in a small way. When he determined to begin a Texas Longhorn herd he called Dickinson Cattle Company, (then in Colorado) and admitted he was an insurance man, knew nothing about cattle but wanted a truck load of cattle, not high dollar, but respectable. Two weeks later a semi from Colorado unloaded 62 head of breeding stock at his Chapel Hills, Texas ranch. When those big horns came down the ramp on Joe's ranch, his love of the breed began, lasting, and growing to his last days. Four years later he consigned one to the Houston Gathering Sale and she topped the sale. Joe was a fast learner, a competitor and a strategists.
