Rev. Robert Rooks Obituary
Rev. Robert Bob' Rooks August 1929 - November 2018 Rancho Bernardo Rev. Bob Rooks died unexpectedly, yet peacefully, with his family by his side on November 20, 2018. He was 89 years young. He joined his beautiful bride, Peggy, and his Lord and Savior in Heaven early that morning. He was the pastor of six churches in California, including the First Baptist Church of Poway and served as an interim pastor at numerous churches. Bob was an accomplished pianist, teaching himself to play in his teenage years. He had a unique style on the piano and blessed many over the years through his music! Bob had a great sense of humor and had a joke for every occasion. Bob was a native of northeastern Georgia and a graduate of Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC, and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He also served in the US Army during the Korean War prior to attending college. He is survived by his son, Jon (Jill); daughter, Jan; and grandchildren, Brett and Kelly Rooks and Hayley Heffron, all of San Diego; his 102-year old sister, Martha Jones, of Atlanta, GA, and many other extended family and friends who loved him dearly. Memorial services will be held on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 10:30 a.m.at Bethel Baptist Church of Escondido, CA. Since Bob was such a generous, ministry- and community-minded person, the family asks that you honor him through a donation to The Church at Rancho Bernardo Impact Offering, 11740 Bernardo Plaza Court, San Diego, CA 92128 or to any other .
