E.E. “Bud” Treadaway, died peacefully at his home in Houston on Tuesday, the 11th of February 2020, surrounded by loved ones following a three year battle with AML Leukemia and Pancreatic cancer. He was 77 years of age.

He was the beloved husband of Frances (Gurney) Treadaway, with whom he shared 58 years of marriage. Born on the 20th of July 1942, in Dallas, Texas, he was the son of E.H. Treadaway and Johnnie Mae (Story) Treadaway, by whom he was preceded in death, as well as his brother James Treadaway.

Bud is survived by his wife, Frances; daughter, Krista Sinex and her husband Todd; grandchildren, Walker, Story and Carter Sinex. He is also survived by his two sisters, Nancy Oliphant and Brenda Gaston.

Bud attended Tyler Junior College after high school and graduated with a B.S. in Business from Arlington State College, presently University of Texas at Arlington.

In his business life, Bud was an oil and gas investor. He co-founded Teco Pipeline Company and was a partner in TRT Holdings until his retirement. He also enjoyed learning the hotel business through the growth of Omni Hotels, which was owned by TRT Holdings. Bud was a supreme negotiator and a self-described schemer who prided himself on getting the best deal for all parties involved.

Bud was cherished by his family and spent many summers flying across the country to attend his grandchildren’s sporting events and activities. He loved nothing more than family gatherings of his immediate and extended family and most enjoyed being a part of his grandchildren’s lives. He loved to travel with his wife Frances and spent relaxing days at his bay house in Galveston. His ultimate joy was spending time at his ranch in Kerrville where he loved to hunt, fish and visit with family and friends. He enjoyed all aspects of game management on the ranch and spent countless hours looking at game pictures. Bud’s greatest event was the surprise 50th wedding anniversary party he threw for his wife at his beloved ranch.

The family wishes to offer their great appreciation to the doctors and nurses at MD Anderson for all of the wonderful care they gave Bud. They also extend a special thank you to Maria Barragan, Beverly Norena and Esmerelda Varon for the wonderful care they gave him in the last few months of his life. You were all very special to him.
