In Memoriam

The Museum is saddened by the recent passing of these three community leaders. Please click below to learn more.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend and fellow Emeritus Board Member and past Vice-Chair of the Board, Andy Thompson. Andy served on our Board from 1998 through 2017, and he has stayed committed to our Museum ever since. In Andy's nearly twenty years of service to the Museum, he was nothing short of incredible. We are immensely grateful for his outstanding leadership, wisdom, and friendship. He will be greatly missed by the Museum, as well as our entire community.

It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the passing of Charlie Moncrief, long-time advocate of the Museum and husband to board member, Kit Moncrief. We deeply appreciate the support, guidance, and insight Charlie has provided for the Museum over these many years. His leadership was instrumental in creating the current building. Our community will mourn his passing.

Our hearts go out to board member Lou Martin who lost her husband Nick Martin earlier this week. Nick was a long-time supporter of the Museum and beloved member of the Fort Worth Community. The Martin's generosity towards the Museum and other local non-profits is truly unparalleled. Nick's memory will live on through his work and devotion to making Fort Worth a better place for all.
