    Just a note to my network to hopefully touch those few remaining that may have known my Dad, Bob Wilpitz.

     

    Dad passed away this morning; and many know he was an old Tenneco Oil Company Landman and loved the job. Dad mentored many and had numerous counterpart friends and associates. He will be missed.

     

    Funeral services will be in Humble, Texas - Rosewood Funeral Home in a few days; you can reach me on my cell at 405-204-6789 or by email.

    Dear Ken,
    I am so very sorry to read that your Dad passed away.   I worked for your Dad in Tenneco's Oklahoma City Land Department​ for many years.   I moved to the Lease Admin. Department and was transferred to San Antonio to help open that new Division Office, and kind of lost track of your Dad over the years.  Great memories of your Dad and our Tenneco days will always remain with me, and I know many others who had the pleasure of working with him.
    Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.   He was an absolute wonderful person, a great mentor and Landman, and I know he will be missed by all.  .Take Care and God Bless.

    I thought a lot of your Dad.  I remember back in the 70's and 80's seeing him at land functions.  Sorry for your loss!

    Dear Ken,
    I was one of those landmen at TOC that your Dad mentored so well during times very much like those we are experiencing today. He was a great boss, mentor and friend.
    I will miss him and always remember the land and life lessons he taught me.

    My deepest sympathy to you and family.

    Ken - It has been a month of Sunday's since we last visited.  I think it is a shame that I use this platform to reach out.  I am very sorry to hear about your dad.  This brings back a great number of memories to me over the last 42 years.  I always thought your dad was a formidable and strong negotiator but always worked for the good of the whole.  Those Tenneco professional Landmen were well prepared and mentored by Bob.  I trust you and your entire family are well and at peace with his passing.  I continue to think about you from time to time and I always will wish you the very best.

    Ken,

    I am sorry to hear of your dad's passing.  I remember him at OCAPL functions in the early 1980s when I was just getting started.  We all looked up to him with great respect.

    Ken:
    Very sorry to hear about your Dad. As a young landman starting out with Tenneco Oil in the late 70s your Dad was one of my mentors that I will never forget. He always knew the answer to any question I would ask and was always around to offer encouraging and meaningful advice. In retrospect he was definitely one of the most knowledgeable and successful landmen I ever have known.  My condolences on your loss. He was a great man!! Our prayers are with you and your family.  Hope to see you at the service.
