Bob was a resident of Sebring, Florida, for the past 14 years where he enjoyed worship at Grace Bible Church, going to his grandchildren’s, nieces,’ and nephews’ special events, family get togethers, playing cards at the local American Legion, VFW, Moose & Am Vets, delivering meals, watching football games, bantering on the telephone with family and friends, sitting on his back porch enjoying music, and the conversation, laughter and the quiet with Lenice.
He was born in Nashville, Tennessee. He went to high school, in Sparta, Tennessee, but went into the United States Navy before graduating and completed his GED there.

He delivered meals for Nu Hope for a few years, made welcome calls to first-time visitors for GBC, and more recently drove one of the golf carts at Advent Hospital for transporting people from the parking lot to the main entrance.
