In memory of
Charles Beggs Moncrief
MONCRIEF, Charles Beggs Charles Beggs Moncrief passed away on January 6, 2021. Charlie was the grandson of legendary wildcatter W.A. "Monty" Moncrief and Elizabeth Bright Moncrief and son of W.A. "Tex" Moncrief, Jr and Deborah Beggs Moncrief. Charlie graduated from Culver Military Academy in 1967 and attended both the University of Texas and Texas Christian University, where he earned his degree in geology. Charlie served in the United States Marine Corps then went directly to work for the family business, Moncrief Oil, Montex Drilling Company and Moncrief Ranches. Charlie was a lifelong oilman dedicated to running and growing the family business along side his father, Tex. He lived his life with principle, exemplified by the heart of a father, the spirit of a Wildcatter, and the courage of a Marine. A dedicated philanthropist and servant to the community of Fort Worth, Charlie served as a trustee for Texas Christian University and the Culver Military Academy, the board of directors for the State Fair of Texas, the Moncrief Foundation, and a lifelong member of the All American Wildcatters. He was the second longest-running executive committee member, serving 47 years on the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, including livestock show superintendent, executive committee, and secretary of the organization. He proudly served our nation in the United States Marine Corps and as a U.S. Marshal. Charlie's strong faith in God and stature represented the strength he carried with him. He was the "Boss" in all sense of the word. A steadfast leader, loyal friend, companion, the best father, and grandfather to his many girls. He had a sincere love for life and adventure. He loved to travel, loved the University of Texas Longhorn Football, and of course, an "occasional" Crown Royal. Charlie is survived by his father, W.A. "Tex" Moncrief, Jr.; his loving wife of 40 years, Kit Tennison Moncrief; daughters B.B. Moncrief, Michelle Moncrief, Gloria Moncrief Holmsten (Erich), Adelaide Royer (Charlie), and Celia Browning (Reagan). He was also blessed with ten grandchildren; Monty, Kit, and Gunni Holmsten; Shirley and Minnie Royer; Reed and Liz Browning, Campbell, Carly, and Charlie Blue Coleman. Charlie is also survived by brothers Tom Moncrief, Dickie Moncrief, Bill Moncrief, Harry Johnson and sister Debbie Ryan. He was preceded in death by mother Deborah Beggs Moncrief, sister Monty Francine Moncrief and brother Herbert Moncrief. The family would like to extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to our loyal, faithful caregivers and helpers Senzeni Achodo, Tiffanie Nelms, Kelly Truken, Amanda Hidalgo, Mia McElroy, Lisa Bloomfield, Reagan McLain, Christina Collier, Kelly Johnson, Hannah Boyd, Brad Thompson, and Connie Mullins. A special thank you to everyone at UT Southwestern Medical Center and Moncrief Cancer Institute including Dr. Keith Argenbright, Dr. Elizabeth Maher, Dr. Craig Dearden, Dr. Ryan Hayes, Dr. Bruce Mickey, and Dr. Al Yung. Private Funeral Services will be Friday, January 8. Pallbearers include Neils Agather, Ed Bass, Dan Coleman, Charlie Flanders, Charlie Geren, Ted Harter, Dee Kelly, Jr., Bill Landreth, Doug Lorimer, David McDavid, Bobby Patton, Bill Royer, Buck Wharton, JR Williams, and Field Yow. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that charitable gifts be made to the Moncrief Cancer Institute, the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center - Simmons Cancer Center, and the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo.
