Robert B. Hornbuckle, Sr.

Beloved husband, father, grandfather. We already miss you terribly but we know you are in a better place, standing tall.

Born in 1923 in Scottsville, Kentucky, to Lydia Boyd and William Robert Hornbuckle.
Bob enlisted in the Army in 1943. That same year he married Marjorie Crider. He worked for DuPont for 37 years.
Bob was six-feet-nine inches tall. As children we were all lifted up to his shoulder or the ceiling.
Bob loved to play golf. He played a damn fine game into his seventies.
He was a master carpenter, draftsman, handyman, butcher, canner, turkey carver, back-scratcher, gumbo-maker, comforter, and protector.
When he lost his legs, Bob weathered every valley and we pushed through each new day with humor and each other.
Bob had two goals this year: to reach his 80th birthday on March 27, and his 60th wedding anniversary on July 17. He did both. He finished his course. He lived 80 years, six months, and three days.
