Robert Edwards Obituary
Edwards, Robert (Bob)



Robert (Bob) Raleigh Edwards went home to be with his Lord on Saturday, April 23, 2016 in Lewisville, Texas. Bob was born August 20, 1944, in Carlsbad, New Mexico to Charles (Dobie) Hugh Edwards and Lois Elaine (Smith) Edwards. He married Kathryn Rachel Frank on March 26, 1971, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and they just shared their 45th anniversary.

Bob is survived by his wife Kathryn; one daughter, Karen Heistand and husband Kirk of Lewisville; two sons, Michael Frank and wife Gaylynea of Kincheloe, Michigan and Kenneth Frank and wife, Lynn of Lewisville; eight grandchildren, Richard Frank, Raleigh Frank, Rachael Frank, Weston Dorsey, Jillian Dorsey, Lainey Dorsey, Nikolay Frank, and Derek Frank; two great-grandchildren, Haleigh Frank and Colt Frank; two sisters, Edith Seaton and Lynne Cox of Albuquerque, New Mexico; along with nieces, nephews, aunts, and uncles.

Bob served in the National Guard for six years and in the trucking industry for over 40 years; working in the office and driving over-the-road. He enjoyed being retired and spending time with his family the last several years.

Temple Baptist Church in Flower Mound, Texas has been his home church for the past 19 years. He loved his church family dearly. Bob has served in many capacities as a willing servant and leader for over 45 years. One of his favorite verses is Proverbs 16:24, "Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones."

He will be truly missed by family and friend's. He "refreshed" many people, 2 Timothy 1:16.
