1948 - 2020
Rodric D. “Rod” Nyp passed away on October 15, 2020, at the HCA Houston Healthcare Center in Tomball, Texas, at the age of 72.
He was born in Hays, Kansas to Paul Nyp and Delora (Stull) Teasley on June 6, 1948. He was blessed with two daughters: Kristen and Cara.
Rod grew up in Kansas and attended High School at Palco High where he graduated with the class of 1966. Following graduation, he attended Kansas Wesleyan University where he studied Biology and competed for the Track team for three years before enlisting in the United States Army in 1970. He served for three years with the Big Red 1 Infantry in Germany before being honorably discharged in 1973. Rod had a successful career in the Oilfield Pump business. Rod later moved to Magnolia, Texas where he made his home and worked for Knighten Industries as an Application Engineer.
Rod enjoyed spending time with his family—especially his granddaughters. He also enjoyed watching sporting events like NASCAR, horse racing, college football, and baseball. If there wasn’t a sporting event on, he would be watching the farm channel or a history documentary on the military. And if he wasn’t with his family, he was listening to music or you could catch him working outside in his yard.
Rod was a member of the VFW and NRA.
Rod is survived by his mother Delora Teasley; children, Kristen (Stewart) Husband of Tomball, and Cara (Jeff) Rasberry of Tomball; siblings, Roland (Irene) Nyp of Stockton and Pam (Rob) Eledge of Omaha, NE; and three grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his father, Paul Nyp.
