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.

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!

Condolences to the extended George family for your earthly loss. Praises to our Lord for His perfect timing however; I can imagine Bob's frustration in his last years at not being able to communicate as he so profoundly did over his earthly ministry.
We founded a ministry, Joy of the Lord in the San Jose, CA region in 1991. It is a Christ-centered recovery entity and was birthed in a home out of a desire to blend the truth of the saving grace of Jesus Christ and the unbelievable outreach He started in the rooms of 12 step recovery. A brother in Christ introduced me to Classic Christianity and the People to People ministry/radio program. It has since radically change my life and many others over more than 27 years of weekly gatherings.
We developed the mantra of 'Crucifying the Confusion', as a way of introducing some very wounded people who crawl into the rooms of the more than 200 12 step recovery programs in existence today. For God so loved the world...
The introduction to the truth of being a New Covenant family as the result of the completed work of Christ, and being filled with resurrection life has literally touched thousands. Praise God!
"Lord Jesus, thank you for the creative work you did in Bob's life. His earthly influence has touched so many. Thank you for sharing him with us. We are so grateful to you."
Because of Jesus... Don Zonic

Amy, Bob and Debbie,
I'm very sorry for your loss. Bob had such a large personality and I know how much you all will miss him. His love for the Lord was so apparent and I know it gives you all such great joy and peace knowing that he is with Jesus praising God and possibly holding court and teaching classes! I say that lovingly because I know that was his great passion to spread the word. Amy, you are an inspiration to any who know you and have seen your love and devotion to Bob all these years. I am so grateful for your influence on my own walk with Jesus. My prayer is that God will give you all peace and comfort and companionship during this difficult time. XO

Dearest Amy and family, it's never easy to say good by, and the passing of loved ones seems so final,
but we know it's only the temporal waiting for the eternal. I was introduce to Bob's early radio ministry
by James Mitchell and Chuck Wray my co-workers at Campbell Taggart, they would pray for me daring
their work break while I enjoyed coffee and friends at break.
Bob was so passionate about the truth of scripture in context, I had never heard teaching like that. My
wife Lisa and I where still attending a denominational church on Sunday and on Thuesday evening a bible
study with Bob and his great staff. After the study I ask Bob what am I not understanding about God's law
and God's grace. Bob looked me in eye and said Larry what are you trusting in for salvation your ability to
keep the law or what Jesus did on the cross when He said IT IS FINISHED! From that moment on the pride
of Larry got set aside to come to Life in Christ. I have been so blessed to meet many like-minded believers
thru the People to People Ministries, which was bless by God's spirit thru Bob. Bob truly had a gift of
teaching with a passion to share the love of Christ with all. I truly loved Bob and all the staff what a beautiful
time was had by all.
Love to you and all the family.

Hello Karen this is Bob!!!! Those were the first words I spoke into the phone oh so many years ago! I was really nervous! I have been in church since I was 5 years old and baptized at 9 then really gave Jesus my life at age 21. Then one day I heard People to People on the radio and to make a long story short I ended up at a Bible study at Skip and Lillian,s house and really learned about Grace and the fact IT IS FINISHED!!!! Thank you for letting me know Jesus lives in me and helping me to forgive the people I needed to.Amy thank you for taking care of Bob in his need!! Im sad but joyful that Bob is with Jesus and we will see him someday because Amy says Goodbye is not Forever!!!!in His love Jess and Karen Ingle

Through the ministry of Bob George, especially his books, I came to have a deeper understanding of the grace of God and the security that comes from knowing it's not about anything I can do but it's all about what He's already done for us. For this I am eternally grateful:)

On Sept 12, 1990 , Bob George married me & my husband Bob. I had attended one of the Descipleship Counseling Conferences where Bob George trained me, mentored me & taught me more about scripture than I had ever learned from anyone. I was fortunate enough to be able to counsel with people who came to the People to People office, which, at the time, was located behind the Cooper Aerobic Center on Preston Rd. I also took calls that Bob would let me handle off air on his radio program. My life was changed after hearing Bob George on the radio. His message of Grace set me free from the cycle of 'sin and death' that Paul talked about. I have given the Depression series to literally dozens of people. To Amy, Debbie & Bob, jr : Thank you for sharing your husband and dad with us for so many years. We loved him more than I can say. He is now absent from the body & present with the Lord. We will all be there to join him one beautiful day. Sending love to all the George family, Bob & Sharon Diana
