He graduated from Cedartown High School in 1953 and has enjoyed many decades of class reunions! Bob graduated from Georgia Tech in 1958. He was an Aeronautical Engineering major who worked as a co-op student at Lockheed while also in the ROTC. Bob married the love of his life, Carolyn Cleo Dodgen, in 1958 and then served over 3 years in the Army. He served as a Helicopter Instructor Pilot and then settled in Cobb County to work and raise his family of three sons. Bob worked for Lockheed for 35 years and retired in 1997 as a Senior Executive.

After retirement Bob loved traveling the world with his wife and often with friends. Bob truly loved the Lord and was a member of Wesley Chapel UMC where he was a Bible teacher and choir member. Later he was a beloved member and elder at Crosspointe Community Church where he worshiped with his children and grandchildren and taught adult Sunday School for several years.
