Bob, known by many since his youth as “Buster,” led an interesting and unusual life. He was said to be “cut from a different cloth,” and that he was.  Bob will be greatly missed by his many friends and family members.

A celebration of Bob’s life will be held on Saturday, June 17, 2017, at 2 p.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of LDS, 1506 S. Main St, Farmville, Virginia. 

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Prince Edward Rescue Squad, to whom his children are extremely thankful.
