Eulalio S. Jauregui Jr.
May 29, 1945 – November 4, 2019
Eulalio S. “Robert” Jauregui, Jr., age 74, passed away on Monday, November 4, 2019 at North Cypress Medical Center after a long battle with leukemia. He was preceded in death by his parents Eulalio S. Jauregui, Sr. and Anita Koole and brother, Mario Koole.
Robert is survived by his loving wife, Laura, three sons: Robert and Justin Jauregui and Donnie Rodriguez and two step-sons: Jimmy and Shane Brewer. He also leaves behind sixteen grandchildren, four great grandchildren, brothers: Bobby and Thomas Koole, and sisters: Ruth Marshall, Marguerite Koole and Debbie Resendez.
He is a veteran of the Vietnam War, where he served as a paratrooper in the 173rd Airborne Brigade. He also jumped in the only major combat jump of the war, Operation Junction City. He earned several medals, including the Bronze Star, Vietnam Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Purple Heart, and Combat Infantryman Badge. The discipline and patriotism he learned in the Army never left him, as friends and family will attest.
Prior to his military service he resided in Freeport, and then Houston, TX. Upon discharged from the Army, he went work at Kwik Kopy (International Center for Entrepreneurial Development) where he eventually became printing franchise manager. Upon retirement, after more than 40 years of employment, he had worked for Bud Hadfield, owner/founder, longer than any other employee.

I send my heartfelt condolences to our family and all who loved Robert. I simply called him Junior. He was the only nearly brother I had. I am so sorry to hear of his having to battle this disease for so long. I know our Dad is holding on to him now. My Dad absolutely loved him so much and I knew he was super special every time they were together. The laughter and love spilled over from them towards each other when they were together.
To our large and wonderful family, please know that I send my love to we all and to a beautiful man with a smile that simply lit up the room and will remain in our hearts forever. God Bless you Junior. My dear and sweet one. Mimi

Bob was our contact at I.C.E.D. and we developed a friendship over the years. We will never forget the support from Bob when our son was killed in Iraq and the trip he made to Tennessee for the funeral. Rest in Peace Bob, we love you and Laura.

I first met Jr when we both worked for the Kwik-Kopy Corporation back in the 80's. Little did I know then that years later he and I would become in-laws with my marriage to his sister. We did not spend a lot of time together, but I always enjoyed the times we did share. Sending our prayers and condolences to all of his family members. He may be gone physically, but will always be with you through your memories and in his spirit.
