Bob J. Ham, a lifelong resident of Quitaque, Texas, died on Wednesday, May 4, 2016, at the age of 85. He was preceded in death by his parents, Clayton and Cleo Dowd Ham, of Quitaque, Texas. Bob was born November 29, 1930 and graduated from Quitaque High School in 1948. He attended the University of North Texas, where he graduated in 1952 with a bachelor's degree in business administration.

After graduating from college, Bob returned to the Quitaque area where he owned and operated movie theaters in Quitaque, Turkey, and Matador. On February 1, 1956 Bob began his banking career at the First National Bank of Quitaque. He began working at the bank in an entry level position and worked his way up to president of the bank. Bob was also actively involved over the years in the ownership and management of the Citizens National Bank of Crosbyton, Texas. At the time of his death he was serving as the chairman of the board of both the First National Bank of Quitaque and Citizens National Bank of Crosbyton. In addition to banking and movie theaters, over the years Bob was also involved in insurance and investment businesses and farming in the Quitaque area. In 2006 the Texas Bankers Association and the Texas Bankers Foundation honored Bob as a "50 Year Banker."

Bob always credited his success and longevity in the banking business to taking a personal and genuine interest in his customers and in seeing his customers succeed in their business. He was a man of strong faith who always did his best to care for others around him and to give back to his community.

In addition to serving on the board of directors for First National Bank of Quitaque and Citizens National Bank of Crosbyton, Bob served as past president of the Greenbelt Bankers Association, member of the board of directors of the Small Business Development Center, past president of the Quitaque Lions Club, member of the Board of Directors of the Tri-County Meals, and on numerous other community-oriented boards and organizations. He was also a member of the First Baptist Church of Quitaque.

Bob enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He was very proud of his family and especially his grandchildren. He enjoyed travelling and was an avid fisherman who was always planning and looking forward to that next fishing trip. As only Bob could script, he went on his annual "Red River fishing trip" the week before and then worked at the bank the day before he passed away.

Bob is survived by his wife, Jacqualyn; his son Max Ham and wife, Anne Marie, of Crosbyton; his daughter Kim Eudy and husband, Ron, of Austin; grandchildren, Traci Fowler and husband, Rick, of Ft. Worth, Chase Ham of Crosbyton, Marshall Eudy of Austin, Gracie Eudy of Austin, and Parker Eudy of Houston; great-granddaughter, Coleson Fowler of Ft. Worth. Bob is also survived by Jacqualyn's children, Rondalyn Butler and husband, Randy of Denver City, Jeff Crump of Plano, Ken Crump and wife, Gaye, of Amarillo; grandchildren, Lindsey Butler of Lubbock, Cameron Butler of College Station, Mario Crump of Austin, Katie Crump of Amarillo, and Calie Crump of Amarillo.

The family will receive friends from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Friday, May 6, 2016 at Moore-Rose Funeral Home, 355 Main St., Quitaque. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at the First Baptist Church in Quitaque. Memorial gifts in honor of Bob may be made to First Baptist Church or Tri-County Meals.
