Bob had a long, happy walk through life with little illness or trauma to mar his path. Born on Nov. 17, 1929, in Brooklyn, N.Y., he spent his early and teen years in Fort Worth. He played football, tennis and golf at Amon-Carter Riverside High School. Here he met the love of his life through a shared "wink" in seventh-grade music class. This eventually led to a marriage that spanned 62 wonderful years. He attended college at the University of Texas
at Austin before serving as a weatherman with the Air Force in Korea. After leaving the Air Force, he continued to serve the military as an inventory manager at Kelly Air Force Base for many years. Upon his retirement, Bob took every opportunity to pursue his love for golf and always enjoyed cheering on his beloved Cowboys and Longhorns. His relationship with our Lord was secure and spending time in His house was always a highlight. He now joins his son, Robert, and parents, Claranell and Sydney, who have been waiting for him. Survivors: Wife, Patsy; sister, Lorna; daughters, Linda and Lorna; granddaughter, Christina; and his great-grandson, Curtis.
