I so miss my dances with Bo at Blanco's and in Bandera under the Texas starry nights at 11th Street Bar and visits regarding real estate, family and friends. A true Southern Gentleman!

Tonja McAllen, Houston, Texas

The best word I can use to describe Bo was gentleman. He was always so gracious, kind and friendly. And what an amazing dancer!!!! We were all a family at Blanco's and I feel honored to have called Bo my "friend". I know he's dancing a two-step in heaven with a full dance card.

Ira Lee Nix, Jr. (Bo), gave up the good fight at age 83 and went to be with his Lord and Savior. In 1950, after graduating from Lamar High School, Bo and many of his close friends joined the Marines and were sent to the front lines of the Korean War at the Chosin (Changjin) Reservoir. After his tour of duty, Bo married his high school sweetheart, Patricia Fenoglio, enrolled in the University of Houston and graduated with a B.B.A. Bo had a long career with Harris County as an Adult Probation Officer. After retiring he followed his entrepreneurial spirit, becoming a real estate investor. He is survived by his daughter, Tricia Nix Doubet, and her husband, Steve; his sons, Danton Nix and Tommy Nix; his grandchildren, Christiana Kittelson, Gunnar Kittelson, Alex Doubet and Chris Doubet. A man with many interests and strong conviction, he enjoyed country and western dancing at Blanco’s and voting conservatively. Bo was an honest, generous man who looked out for others, and was loved by his children and their mother.
Services will be held in the chapel of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, Wednesday June 17 at 11:00a.m. Inurnment will follow with full military honors at 2:30p.m at Houston National Cemetery.
Remembrances may be made to Margaret Cullen Marshall Hospice Care Center, 1905 Holcombe Blvd., Houston, TX 77030.
