Robert Franklyn George 1933-2018

Robert Franklyn George (Bob) was born on February 2, 1933 in New Castle, Indiana to Franklyn and Helen George.

He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Amy; Debbie Cannaday, daughter and son-in-law John Cannaday; Bob George, son and Eva George daughter-in-law; Robert and Kelsie Cannaday - grandson and grand-daughter-in-law; Joseph Cannaday - grandson; Jonathan Cannaday - grandson; Stephen George - grandson

As a young boy, Bob started to show a talent for singing as he sang solos in church and school plays. He loved to play basketball especially with his best friends with whom he remained close throughout his life. Bob attended Indiana University where he was in a group called the Singing Hoosiers. He was also a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity.

After graduation from Indiana University, he was drafted in the Army 9th Infantry Division in Goeppingen, Germany. Bob was in the Special Services where he was a lead singer with the Army band. The group travelled throughout Germany entertaining troops. Bob met the love of his life, Amy, at the Cooke Barracks NCO club in Germany. Bob and Amy married in Germany and then came back to the United States.

After many years of working in the business world, Bob felt that something was missing in his life even though he had a beautiful wife and family. He felt empty. Bob found the answer to his emptiness when a friend shared with him the unconditional love of Jesus. By faith, Bob accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. After receiving Christ, he had a strong desire to share the message of hope in Jesus Christ with others so he followed the call of God and started his own ministry.

Bob founded Discipleship Counseling Services and People to People ministries. He wrote the best-selling book Classic Christianity which has been translated into 26 languages. He is the author of numerous books, Bible studies and audio series. Bob's People to People radio broadcasts helped countless people nationwide. It was a live call-in show that provided biblical answers to the problems that people were facing in their lives. His clear and practical way of teaching the Bible was a gift from God. He always pointed to the Scriptures for the answers and always made sure that the callers knew "beyond a shadow of a doubt" that they were going to heaven. He led many people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Bob and Amy's ministry, People to People, took them all around the world as they taught people about the love of God. This same message is continuing today through Bob George Ministries. God's grace is shared everywhere as an extension of his People to People ministries which he founded many years ago. His Classic Christianity radio broadcasts can be heard daily on 770 KAAM-Dallas and 670 KLTT Denver as well as online. Bob George Ministries is continuing and growing to this day.

Sad to hear just now of Bob's passing last year, but joyful knowing he is with Jesus! I look back at the DCS Conferences of 1994 and 2009 on Mt. Hermon with great fondness. Especially 1994 as I was battling great depression and hopelessness. Everyone there was such an encouragement - I began to see that all hope wasn't lost - and it was the beginning of understanding God's unconditional love for me.

It was a pleasure meeting Bob and Amy on both occasions and my heart goes out to the family!

I came to the Lord in the late 1970's . Thanks to Bob through my darkest times in my life ,I came across his program on Warv in R.I. People To People .I loved the message he gave on the finality of the Cross and power of the Resurrection through Jesus Christ .I was saved. I faithfully listened to his program and how he help many like myself. Since not hearing the program in years , I always wondered what happened to Bob and People to People Ministry. Today I decided to check on internet and here I am . Sadden to hear Bob passed last year . But I know that he is absent in the body and present with the Lord. Thank you Bob and Amy and People to People for all you have done for me in my early days as a believer . God bless

Bob touched my life in New Jersey back in the 1980s… Via radio… And the discipleship counseling seminar you had here… I was fortunate enough to talk to he and Amy before he passed… To thank him for all he’s done for me… My 29-year-old son who is a Christian past year and a half ago… And Bob’s teaching really opened up my heart to get through it… The biggest Takeaway is life life life… And not the preoccupation with sin that today’s preaching tends to have… that Sam is on believe… And the preoccupation with the worlds version of Sam keeps us in bondage… I can’t think Bob and Amy enough… Debbie please please please try to get up to New Jersey/New York with your mom… My wife Diane and I are going to try to come down to see you all in Texas next year… I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done… Bob Ferla

I was sitting in a bible study today and sharing my freedom in Christ as taught to me through Bob's teaching when the Holy Spirit said to my inner self that Yes, listen to this! What rang true then, rings true now. I've never been the same since. So, in today's sharing of the finality of the Cross, and finding agreement in some of the faces saying "Yes, I want to listen to this," while others still grappled with their law of good works---I thought of Bob. Looked him up tonight and found his obituary from last June. Oh, how he will be missed here, But oh how happy he is there with Jesus His Savior and all the saints He set free indeed through Bob's fearless ministry in teaching us of Christ's unconditional love through reconciliation.

I attended the Discipleship training, the last one at Sonridge, in October 1991. I'll never forget that communion, which was the most tender-hearted and united experience I'd ever had and the only one like it ever since. All paled after that; however, that experience there--that unity in the faith--sustains me to this very day.

Thank you, Bob and Amy, for whatever it took to get Christ into you like He did and sharing Him with us. I can still hear Bob's voice over the radio waves, "Lord Jesus, I need you. Thank you for dying for my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and give me Life." I said these words today: Jesus died for me, to give His Life to me, to live His Life through me honor the Truth behind Bob's simple explanations of the profound!

Good bye is Not Forever thanks to Bob and Any George. I had the distinct privilege of sharing a week in Sandy Cove Maryland in 1994 with all the Bobs, Ed Hecht and so many friends I have kept in touch with to this Day. The World is a better place because of All Bob and Amy gave to make it so. Our condolences to the Family. Thank you Lord for Bob George and Macolm Smith's interview at the NRB in 1989 my life has never been the same since.

May you all be set free by the infinite ways Bob George had for helping so many eyes and ears to open to the heart felt way he gave all the richs that are found in Christ Jesus. Thank You Amy for standing your Man. He changed our World with the Love of God.

I just heard about Bob's passing the other day. I remember soaking up his teachings on the radio from the People to people broadcast. It was Bob who solidified the doctrine of grace to me, and 2nd Cor. 5:21 became my favorite verse of scripture. I still have many of his broadcast on cassette I went to Dallas to take part in the Discipleship training ..I think it was in 1989. I was impressed by his kindness and love for the scriptures. I will be eternally grateful for all that he taught me and I am sure he would be proud of me as I am passing on the message of grace to all who have ears to hear. May God bless you as you are missing and grieving the loss of this wonderful saint in Christ.

I started listening to Bob on the radio, driving to work and back. Things that he was teaching caught my attention. My wife and I also enjoyed listening to people calling in with questions, comments. We did get to see him in person. We got all of his study material that day. We shook hands, laughed and talked at the table while looking at the available teaching during a break. It was great! His family has our deepest sympathy. He will be greatly missed. We learned a lot from him.

I first heard Bob on radio in 1985, driving to work in Atlanta. Immediately, I knew the Lord connected me with an unparalleled "gift to the Body of Christ." The tenets of Bob's teaching will live on. Our prayer is that His teaching will continue reaching more and more pulpits and crusades throughout the world. Bob is probably the most oft-quoted teacher on earth by Christian pastors - a testimony that Bob truly was chosen in 1969 to carry the truth of God's grace to those with ears to hear. Bob often said the first person he'd like to meet in heaven after the Lord is Paul. For me - you guessed it. After Christ, I'll be looking for Bob!

I have just learned of Bob's passing. Oh how I fed on his broadcasts and books while in Seminary in the 80s. I've shared Classic Christianity with so many people. God bless your family as you are temporarily separated.

All my life I knew the importance of Calvary; and Christ removing my sins through His precious shed blood. I knew that the resurrection was crucial in scripture fulfillment, but I didn't understand how vital it meant to me. I lived a half-gospel. Until I listened to Mr. George on his People to People broadcast circa 1999. Now I understand that not only did Jesus died for me; He lives in me! I knew that I was saved but I didn't understand the full gospel of grace and power delivered to me until I listened to Mr. George expound it from the Scripture. Condolences to all Bob's family. We will all meet again very soon!
