Robert H. “Bobby” Heath, Sr.
Pink Hill
Robert Harvey Heath, Sr, Bobby to most who knew him, passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 31, 2017. In death, as in life, he was surrounded by those who loved him dearly. He was a caring and loving husband to his wife Carole, for over 58 years. He was a proud and amazing Daddy, Papa, and GGPa to his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He was a friend to countless and was always willing to give much more that he would take. His years here were filled with hard work and selfless devotion to his family. Over the last year his body grew weary and he was ready to go home to see the Jesus he loved and told so many about. Words cannot describe how much he will be missed but Heaven has gained a new star.
In addition to his wife, Bobby is survived by his children, Winnie H. Hill and husband Rusty, D. Anne H. Rivenbark and husband Steve, Robby Heath and wife Gail; grandchildren, Brandon Hill and wife Elizabeth, Stephanie Miller and husband Joe, Tiffany Arthur and husband Ryan, Sabrina Keckley and husband David, Courtney Rubio and husband Luis, and Katelyn Barr; great-grandchildren, Savannah, Charlotte and Madison Hill; David Keckley, Heath Miller, and Sophia and Lily Rubio; sister Linda Herring, and special friend Wayne Parker.
