From 1985 to 1993 he served with the Fountain Inn Police Department.  He was a member of Fairview Presbyterian Church, baptized on Christmas Day in 1932, an Elder Emeritus, and faithful attendant of the Covenant Sunday School Class. He was especially fond of the children seeking him after Sunday service for lollipops.  Bob played baseball at Newberry College and enjoyed hunting and fishing.  He spent mornings with his buddies at the local Hardee’s, and played Pinochle weekly at the Fountain Inn Activity Center.
