Robert "Bob" Gillespie Jr. FORT WORTH--Robert "Bob" Gillespie Jr. passed away Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017. Bob was born in Fort Worth on Jan. 16, 1950. He graduated from Arlington Heights High School in 1968 and attended Tarrant County College. He worked for many years at Texas Refinery Corp as a salesman and sales manager. He was a lifelong lover of music, playing both guitar and piano. As a teenager, he enjoyed being in a local band that played at parties and actually cut a couple of records. Bob looked out for his neighbors, human and animal, and gave warm greetings, always obliging a neighborhood cat with a neck-scratch. SURVIVORS: Daughter, Morgan Rogers and husband, John; grandchildren, Logan and Scott; and brother, Randall Gillespie of Dallas. LUCAS FUNERAL HOME Keller, 817-753-6800 View and sign guestbook at

Thinking of you. I am lucky that we got a chance to reconcile our feelings this summer and that the last words we spoke to each other were ' I love you '. That was a forever gift.
You were a thinker and I am grateful you gave that ability to me.
One day you stopped me and asked me to notice the shadow from the afternoon sun going across the text of the newspaper on our kitchen table, just because it was 'neat'. And it was neat Dad and it has stuck with me for years.

I went to school with Bob for 12 years. One of the nicest most genuine people ever.

I remember Bob and Randy from Arlington Heights Methodist Church in the late sixties. We often played music at the church "teen" gatherings, and Bob was always generous in sharing guitar knowledge and wisdom with those of us somewhat younger. I lost track of him after I graduated in 1970, but I will always have fond memories of him and our friendship. Rest In Peace, Bob.

I hope you and all the Gillespie cousins are having a wonder concert today. We had wonderful Sunday afternoons.
