Robert E. Lineberry

Robert Edward Lineberry was a retired minister who pastored Christian Community Fellowship Church in Castroville for 49 years. His life was an adventure of preaching, piloting his own airplane, snow skiing, taking his daughters on day trips on his motorcycle, traveling for pleasure and ministry, and loving and serving the community of Castroville. He ministered in Mexico many times at a village where one had to climb over the town's stone wall to enter, (and was only safe if a villager brought him in); he ministered in Romania where he and his wife supported an orphanage and local ministries; while working at a California State Prison he baptized 39 inmates after bringing them to know Jesus.

After retiring, Robert and Norma moved to Fresno where they attended Northside Christian Church. On July 25, 2014 at the age of 81, in Madera, Robert died of natural causes and he finally arrived at the destination he looked forward to his whole life, Heaven. His heart's desire and life's work was to encourage others to join him there when God calls them home. Born July 14, 1933, in Kokomo, Indiana to Henry Dewey Lineberry and Mildred Frayer Lineberry, he had an older brother, Wilbert Lineberry, and two younger sisters, Lois Lineberry Norman and Sharon Lineberry Haley.

Robert married Norma Rode on June 11, 1954, in Modesto. They recently celebrated their 60th anniversary. In addition to Norma, he is survived by three daughters and their families: Candace Lineberry Love and Donald Love; Heidi Lineberry Daniels and Joseph Daniels; and Michelle Lineberry Campbell; 12 grandchildren and families: Dustin Love, Chelsea Love Spurgeon and her husband Nathan, Landon Love, Jordan Love and his wife Heather, Brendan Love, Christian Love; Nicholas Campbell, Zachary Campbell, Sloane Campbell-Jennings and her husband Robert; Saxon Daniels, Silver Daniels, and Storm Daniels. Five great-grandchildren: Cicely Spurgeon, Ariella Spurgeon, Jeremiah Campbell, Malachi Campbell-Jennings, and Joseph Daniels; both sisters: Lois and Sharon, and numerous nieces and nephews.

A Celebration service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, 2014, at Salinas Valley Community Church.

Graveside Committal will follow at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Salinas.
