In 1980 he married the love of his life, Kathy Hoke LeCour. They just celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary on June 7th. Bob was a devoted husband and loving father. His strong Christian heritage allowed him to excel over the many challenges he faced in life. Bob and Kathy have been members of "exciting" Second Baptist Church family for many years.
We can only imagine the huge celebration and rejoicing going on in Heaven by loved ones and family members who have gone on before. As the inscription on the marker for Bob's dog, Bubba, states ...."We'll see you on the other side."

I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone from the beginning....to the end.
He noted that first came the date of her birth and spoke of the following date with tears,
but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years.
For that dash represents all the time that she spent alive on earth
and now only those who loved her know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own, the cars...the house...the cash.
What matters is how we live and love, and how we spend our dash.
So think about this long and hard; are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down enough to consider what's true and real
and always try to understand the way other people feel.
And be less quick to anger and show appreciation more
and love the people in our lives like we've never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile...
remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.
So when your eulogy is being read with your life's actions to rehash,
would be you proud of the things they say about how you spent your dash?
