OBITUARY

Marion "Bo" Edward Eagles

October 7, 1939September 9, 2019

Marion “Bo” Edward Eagles passed away on Monday morning, the 9th of September 2019, at his home in Houston, with his family by his side. He was 79 years of age.

Bo was born on the 7th of October 1939, in Winnfield, Louisiana, to Edward Porter Eagles and Juanita Wagoner Eagles. He attended Louisiana Tech University, Advanced Management Development at the University of Texas and the Tuck Executive Program at The Amos Tuck School of Business Administration, Dartmouth College. He served over 58 years in the Oil Service Industry in various executive leadership roles for Cameron Iron Works, McDermott, Weatherford, Techdrill and EBT Ventures as well as serving on several prominent boards.

His commitments to organization leadership extended well into the civic arena where he was active in Boy Scouts of America, United Way, and received the Don E. Waggener/Butch Griffin Award from Spindletop International for his contributions to the organization’s chartable efforts. It was thru Bo’s direction that the Weatherford Enterra Services Division became one of the original Charity Partners of the Shell Houston Open when the program began in 1994. He served as chair committee with the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo and Opera of the Heights and was an ambassador to the Houston Texans. His most recent passion was spending time with the Association of Retired Executives (ARE).

Bo is preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Anita Darbonne; and his brother, Tommy Joe Eagles. He is survived by his wife, Lynn; his daughters, Jerri Sweet and her husband Scott, Donna Arnold and her husband Todd, and Mamie Rittiman and her husband Darrell; five grandchildren, Taylor Arnold, Austin Arnold, Jack Powell, Annabelle Powell, and Bo Rittiman; and one great-granddaughter, Addison Manning.

Bo’s life would seem too short for many that knew him, but those who were touched by him understood that the quality of life and family far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. The order of his life was God, Wife, Family and Relationships. He valued and respected every person that he had the privilege of meeting during his life.

A funeral service and celebration of his life is to be conducted at two o’clock in the afternoon on Friday, the 20th of September, in the Jasek Chapel of Geo. H. Lewis & Sons, 1010 Bering Drive in Houston.

Immediately following, all are invited to greet the family during a reception in the adjacent grand foyer.

At a later date, Mr. Eagles’ family will gather for a private entombment in the chapel of the Texas Liberty Mausoleum at Memorial Oaks Cemetery in Houston.

In lieu of customary remembrances, the family requests with gratitude that memorial contributions in Marion’s name be directed to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St Jude Place, Memphis, TN, 38105; or to The American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 22478, Oklahoma City, OK, 73123.

Alan Baker/and Betty Ann

It would be very difficult to write enough praise for Bo and Lynn Eagles. A warm, kind, knowledgeable man, Bo was a good friend to all with his strong voice, big smile and willingness to help or lead. Betty Ann and I were so fortunate to be included in several events with Bo and Lynn. I first met Bo at Spindletop in the 70's at Old Orchard, amazed at his golfing performance and following that his participation in Offshore Energy Center, ARE, and many other groups, including international, Russia, Scotland and others. We will all miss him immensely but take much satisfaction in remembering the good times, his strong leadership and wonderful friendship! Love you Bo, Lynn and your family!

Bo and I first met in the early 1980's at Cameron and even though I was just starting my career and he was already a senior executive Bo always treated me with exceptional courtesy and consideration. During these past 14 years I was fortunate to get to spend a lot of time with Bo while he served as an advisor and board member for our private manufacturing company. His counsel, always filled with wisdom and unique insights, were a gift to all of us. He was an exceptionally fine man who helped so many people. He and his family, whom he was so proud of, will be remembered in my prayers.

I feel blessed to have worked with and known Bo for so many years. I remember going back into the late 70's, when he gave me my first little Cameron knife and how much that meant to me. I still have it and think of him every time I see it.

Bo was one everyone loved and appreciated. He always took time to meet and visit and show his appreciation for the team efforts that made us such a success. A well respected man with High Integrity in our Industry and he is surely missed!

Lynn, having known your family for many years from growing up in Patterson, please know that many love you'll and are thinking of you and your family during this time. You were always by his side helping to make him the success that you'll achieved together.

My prayers and thoughts are with you and it is good knowing that Bo is now making many new friends and seeing many old friends with the Lord.

I will not be able to make the service which saddens me but please know that I am thinking of you all and will surely miss Bo!

My wife Marty and I are saddened by the news of Bo's passing. Bo was a business mentor of mine as well as a friend. Bo and I spent many occasions on the golf course talking about life and business. Bo was always there for my family and he will be missed. Rest in Peace my friend, you will be missed.

Karen and I extend our most profound sympathies to Lynn, daughters, son-in-laws, and grandchildren on the earthly loss of Bo. I never knew a kinder gentleman. He loved his family with every fiber and was so proud of you.

Bo had a great, positive impact on all that knew him. His leadership and contribution to the energy industry was profound, along with those private causes he generously supported.

Truly "a life well lived". Bo's memory will be long cherished by those lives he touched.

I was saddened to hear of Mr. Eagles' passing from my father, Gus Laugier, today. He was among my favorite of my father's former colleagues at Cameron. Our family shares our deepest condolences and hope the memories will bring some comfort to his family.

A truer gentleman there never was. Bo was a friend, a mentor, a board advisor at Forged Products, Inc./The Reserve Group as well as a close colleague in our board’s most important decisions. We will miss his wisdom dearly. The two words that most described Bo’s business style are thoughtful and professional. His natural grace, equanimity and wisdom were ever on display.

Our brother-in-law Bo was more special than words can describe. He always left a warm lasting impression on everyone he met. He is already so greatly missed.
