He was a devoted husband for 68 years, father of four children, grandfather of 8 and great grandfather of 4. Bob grew up in the TX panhandle and eastern New Mexico on various large cattle ranches. He was a quintessential cowboy/cattle rancher. He enjoyed the ranch life and he loved country & western music. After meeting in elementary school, Bob married Myrl Chenault in 1954 in Dora, NM.

While there, Bob served as an engineer/firefighter for the Clovis Fire Department for 30 years retiring in 1990. On his off shifts from the fire department, Bob installed carpet for more than 30 years. During their time in Clovis, serving the Lord’s church was an important part of their life. They were dedicated and active members of the 16th & Pile Church of Christ and then the 21st Street Church of Christ in Clovis and also Gateway Church of Christ in Ruidoso, NM. Bob served as a deacon for 16 years at 16th & Pile. After full retirement, they moved to Fort Worth, TX to be near their family and became active members of Southside Church of Christ in Fort Worth.
