Bob’s love of golf was only surpassed by his love of his Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ. He was a very talented and avid golfer who was fortunate enough to be able to play on many golf courses throughout the country.
Bob was a member of the Winfield Baptist Church, and he will be missed as a prayer warrior there. He studied his Bible faithfully and adhered to its teachings.
Bob was the youngest boy in his family and his cousin Dorothy told that he was his Momma’s pride and joy and she always took him to church as a young boy and no matter where Bob traveled in his later life he always found a church to attend.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the Quality Hospice Care, especially Brenda Smith who went above and beyond.
