He was an active member and deacon of both Drexel First Baptist and Morganton First Baptist Church, Scoutmaster, outdoorsman, volunteer fireman and log homebuilder. Bob enjoyed gardening, providing a wonderful home for his family and spending time with his six grandchildren. He also participated in mission trips to West Africa, Brazil, Ecuador, Haiti and Puerto Rico and was an anonymous financial supporter to many organizations, schools and individuals who were in need of assistance and a helping hand. He truly believed in helping others.
It is with both sorrow and celebration that we move into another chapter of life without our father but we will always carry forward the memories of love, support, guidance, comfort and happiness. These memories and the lessons learned from our father have helped us to be become better individuals and better parents of which we hope we can pass along to others. We are so grateful and blessed that words will never be able to express how fortunate we are to have 'Bod' as our father.
