Wilbert Anthony Theriot Jr., beloved husband, father, and grandfather, passed away July 1, 2019 at home after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was 83. He was born March 4, 1936 in Wright City, Texas to Wilbert Anthony Theriot Sr. and Jane Elizabeth Henderson Theriot. He was the oldest son of 10 children. Wilbert is survived by his wife of 52 years, Sondra Reed Theriot, his two daughters Amy Griggs and husband Steve, Carol Close and husband Sean, and two grandchildren Claire and Colin Close. Wilbert attended Kilgore College and Texas A&M University, and graduated with a bachelor's degree in Landscape Architecture in 1967. He was a registered Landscape Architect throughout his career. Always a hard worker, he began his career for the city of Dallas and was also one of the first Landscape Architects to start The Woodlands back in the 1970’s. Wilbert loved to be outside nurturing plants. He could fix anything. Wilbert was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and was a member of the Knights of Columbus for 64 years. He was proud to receive the Knights of Columbus Knight of the Year award in 1999 and was honored to be in the 4th degree. Whenever he heard of someone in need or a job to be done, he was always eager to help. He was a volunteer fireman, and he spent a lot of his free time doing service through the Knights of Columbus. His brother Knights were like a second family to him. He was a devoted family man, and he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren.

Wilbert was my great uncle, and although I haven’t seen him in many years I am very sorry to hear of his passing.

Tho I didn't get to know Wilbert well, we shared the love of our grandchildren, Claire and Colin. His adoration of those kids was obvious even to the casual observer. You can tell the kind of man he was by the girls he raised. His daughter Carol is now my daughter and I'm forever grateful to both he and Sondra. Blessings to his family and friends.

Wilbert was a blessed friend and Brother Knight to my family for the past 20 years. Wilbert was also a mentor to me and an example of a great father and provider. Having supported and raised two families, his own and his siblings, he had a profound influence on me. His many stories will be examples to teach with and tell others. Sondra, Amy and Becky were blessed to have Wilbert as a husband and father. We will all miss him. He was a true Catholic Gentleman and now in the presence of the Lord. Vivat Jesus!

As a brother Knight, Wilbert was always there to help. I appreciated his dedication, and fellowship. He put in countless hours helping the Council and working on the KC hall, and we did not thank him enough. Guys like him are the body of an organization and what makes it work.
I will miss him.
