Robert 'Bobby' Lipscomb
GAFFNEY--Robert 'Bobby' Lamar Lipscomb, Jr., 70, of 107 W. O'Neal Street, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, September 30, 2018 at his residence.
Born in Gaffney, he was the son of the late Robert Lamar Lipscomb, Sr. and Margaret (Maggie) Thomas Lipscomb. He was a graduate of Gaffney High School and UNC-Charlotte, retired from Concrete Supply in Charlotte, NC and was employed by Pete Knight of Knights Redi-Mix in Summerville who he considered not only his boss but a dear friend. He loved the game of golf and was an avid Clemson Tigers fan. He was a member of the American Concrete Institute where he received numerous awards and a member of Toast Masters. He was a member of First Baptist Church of Blacksburg and a former longtime member of Southside Baptist Church. Bobby was a humble person that was always willing to help others. He shared his love for Jesus with everyone.
Surviving are a sister, Vicki Threadgill and husband, Pete of Spartanburg; a nephew, Barry Threadgill of Spartanburg; a niece, Beth Herlihy-Bone and husband, Yancey of Spartanburg; two great-nieces, Ava Elizabeth Herlihy and Sara Elizabeth Bone.
The family would like to express special thanks to Mayella Blanton and Compassus Hospice for blessing his life in so many ways. Jesus said in Matthew 25:40: The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, 'whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
Memorial services will be held at 1:30 PM on Sunday, October 7, 2018 at Southside Baptist Church with Dr. Wofford Caughman, Mrs. Vicki Threadgill and Mrs. Beth Herlihy-Bone officiating. The family would like to invite friends and family to join them in the Church Family Life Center for a reception immediately following the service.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to: Southside Baptist Church, Capital Improvement Fund, 204 W. O'Neal Street, Gaffney, SC 29340 or Compassus Hospice, 212 E. Floyd Baker Boulevard, Gaffney, SC 29340.
