NEWPORT NEWS - Bob was born October 17, 1939 in Covington, VA and passed away Friday, March 31, 2017, at Roanoke Memorial Hospital, Roanoke, VA.

He was a very talented artist and after graduating from Newport News High School, "Class of '58", he was employed by Daily Press-Times Herald Advertising Department as a commercial artist. In 1979, he relocated to Lynchburg, VA and worked for the Reverend Jerry Falwell of Liberty University on the Faith Aflame Publication.

He accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at a young age. His faith was unquestionable.

Rock of Ages

Words by Augustus Montague Toplady, 1763 (first published in The Gospel Magazine, 1775)
(04 Nov 1740 - 11 Aug 1778)

Music by Thomas Hastings
(15 Oct 1784 - 15 May 1872)


Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee,
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy riven side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure,
Save me from its guilt and pow'r.

Not the labors of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law's demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked come, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly,
Wash me, Savior, or I die!

While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyes shall close in death,
When I soar to Thee for dress;
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.
