Mr. Tannery, 87, died of congestive heart failure and respiratory failure Friday at his ranch in Little Elm.
In 1933, after attending Southern Methodist University for several semesters, Mr. Tannery joined the faculty of the University of Texas at Austin as an associate professor of accounting. During his 11 years of teaching at UT, he completed his bachelor's degree in business administration and earned a master's degree and doctorate.
During leaves of absence from UT, Mr. Tannery served as first assistant to the state auditor of Texas and as a consultant to the National Association of State Auditors, Comptrollers and Treasurers, which was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation.
Mr. Tannery left UT to join the Army Air Force during World War II and was director of its contract audit division.
After leaving the military, he worked in the oil industry in Houston for several years before moving to Dallas in 1951 to become general partner at Arthur Young and Co., an international accounting firm.
In 1957 he joined The Frito Co. and was named president in 1962, when the company merged with H. W. Lay and Co. After Frito-Lay merged with Pepsico Inc. in 1965, Mr. Tannery served as chairman of the board of Pepsico International until he retired in 1970.
After his retirement, Mr. Tannery remained on the board of five Texas corporations and was active as a financial business consultant. He retired to his Little Elm ranch in 1987.
In 1988, UT's College of Business named Mr. Tannery a distinguished alumnus. The Fladger F. Tannery Distinguished Chair in Business was named in his honor.
Mr. Tannery served on the Children's Medical Center board of directors for many years. He also was president of the Texas Society of CPAs, chairman of the American Institute of CPAs, and president and chairman of the board of the Cotton Bowl Council.
