Friends and colleagues describe themselves as “in shock” over the recent death of George Pangborn, who had been serving as president of the Highland Lakes Tea Party in Burnet County.

Pangborn was born Dec. 8, 1956. He was 61.

“I was surprised, since I'd just seen him a few days prior in the court room, commending local firefighter efforts in the recent fires,” said Burnet County Judge James Oakley, who had known Pangborn for 15 years.

Mary Jane Avery, president of the Burnet County Republican Club, recalled that last month she and Pangborn had carpooled together to the State Republican Convention in San Antonio.

“I didn't know he had any health issues,” she said.

No services have been scheduled at this time, but final arrangements are being handled by Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home in Burnet.

Judge Oakley described Pangborn as “a very intellectual person.”
