Robert Lee "Bob" Bright passed away peacefully on April 15, 2013, at the age of 92 surrounded by his loved ones in Arlington, Virginia. He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Betty Detering Bright, and his daughters and sons-in-law, Ruth and Kenneth Parent and Beth and Marcel Gutierrez, and his first cousin Juanita Moberly of Nashville.

Bob was born in Brown County, Indiana, on January 10, 1921, to Lee and Ruth Bright. He graduated from Indiana University in 1942, served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II, and was honorably discharged in December 1945. With his golden speaking voice, he began a 40-year career in radio and television broadcasting and management while awaiting call-up to military service, and resumed activity in this profession after discharge. Early in his radio career, he came down with strep throat and went to the hospital, where he met his wife, a nurse.
A devoted husband and father, his greatest joy came from spending time with his family and friends. His warmth, kindness and sense of humor will be missed by all.

The funeral is scheduled for Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:00 P.M. at the United Methodist Church in Nashville, Indiana. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Community Closet, P.O. Box 44, Nashville IN.47448-0044, or to the Nashville United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 518,Nashville, IN.47448
