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.

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!

I am sadden yet rejoicing simply because I believe the heart of Bob George was pure and that Jesus has accepted him into heaven. I can and have continue to live by the lessons learned through Bob George Ministries. The impact has been priceless. I will ALWAYS remember him and I'm happy that he is with the Lord. Words just escape me right now because although I never formally met Bob George, I feel like he is my father, teacher, motivator, inspiration, guidance, and through his teaching, I am a different person today. I will FOREVER honor and admire him.

We thank God for using Bob to teach us about the grace and new covenant
of Jesus back in 1991. It was on the radio when I accidentally turned the
radio to am station. I was so down about all the law I had been under and
couldn't be free . I wanted to understand this grace that Bob was teaching .
I prayed Lord this sounds so radical, and if this is not of you I want nothing to do with it. I continued to listen, called the station , spoke to Ed Hecht
and started learning about law and grace. That is when my grace journey
began, I loved listening to Bob teach , he made it so easy to understand .
He had such a love of Jesus in his heart for wanting others to be set free too. We are forever greatful to Bob and the ministry that sets people free.
We still support the ministry and enjoy hearing him on our Denver,Co radio station, because we want others to learn about Jesus and the freedom that the grace brings . We love you all and pray for continuous comfort and support to spread this great news of Jesus Christ,
We will miss Bob, but we look forward to seeing him in our heavenly home .
Love , peace and grace through Jesus,
DeWain and Sue Stoll 💕😇💕

I'm so sorry for your loss. My brother held bible study in our home using the teaching materials from People to People. We started in 2009 when our son was born. What a weight that was lifted as I started to understand Grace. Fast forward 19 years of Bible studies we lost our precious son. I'm so grateful to Bob George for giving us such understanding. A child loss is devastating . I know it was not coincidence that we started our studies a few months after his nirth. I truly believe God was preparing us so we could lean on him. Bob was a daily voice in our home. We were so blessed to be a part of his teachings. Continued prayer for your family. Thank you Bob!

I am so sorry for your loss. What can I say except that Bob’s teachings changed my life. It was like being born again, again. I found him one day on my car radio in the early 90’s, while trying to tune into another program. When I heard what he was telling a caller about grace and the life of Christ in you, I couldn’t believe my ears. My first remembrance was that I knew what he was saying was truth. At the same time, I felt absolutely desperate to know more. I began recording his program on a portable cassette recorder while I was out, and listening each night for many months.

I attended a one day Saturday conference he held at Wheaton College, and was amazed that he taught this radical message purely from Scripture on an overhead projector.

I eventually read Classic Christianity, began teaching from it in a small group bible study, and attended three of his conferences in different cities. Since then, I have shared this message at every opportunity.

I am eternally grateful to Jesus Christ for what He did for me at the Cross, and for Bob George, for spreading the radical, true message of the Gospel.

I will forever miss Bob George. He is the man who introduced me to the endless love and grace of God. After many years as a legalistic Christian I stumbled across Bob on the radio. I was drawn to his sincere love of God, fellow believers and even non-believers. Over the next few years I began to listen to him on the radio quite regularly. Then in the 90's my mother and I attended a Classic Christianity Conference in Atlanta, Ga. At the end of the conference I can remember telling my mother, this is good news! For the next few years I read all of Bob's book, sometimes more than once. I began buying them in groups of five or ten and giving them out at the Spirit led me. Bob's teaching on the love of God has changed many lives, especially mine. Since those days I have continued to study and today I lead classes and on occasion get to talk to groups about God's love. Thank you again BOB GEORGE for showing me the real Jesus Christ.

The first time we heard the Grace message was through Bob George on People to People (almost 20 years ago)!!!
We would listen to Bob's tapes every evening; it changed our lives!! Thank you Amy for loving Bob and standing by your man through it all! Praise Jesus for you and your family! We love you!

Dearest Amy and family,
I am thanking Jesus for sweetly tending to each of you and filling your hearts and thoughts with peace at this amazingly bittersweet time. I am so deeply saddened with Bob's passing and I send a warm hug to each of you.

Bob George. That Bob George!!! What a guy! Oh, how grateful I am that God put Bob and People To People in my life in 2002. I had no idea what I was missing until I began to learn truth and was set free! Oh, how I long for those Classic Christianity Conference days. They were some of the very best days of my life! Priceless!!!

Because Jesus turned on my truck radio to let me find PTP live radio show, I have been wonderfully blessed with some precious friends/brothers and sisters in Christ from the conferences and Metro.

So here's to Bob who could really express truth about our Lord Jesus!!! He was, no doubt, one of a kind and will be sorely missed until we join him in heaven. Oh, and thanks to Bob, I know I am a new creation and I am flying like a butterfly!
