He was an avid sports fan. He was often found keeping detailed stats or holding a stop watch on the sidelines of a sporting event. He loved following his grandchildren and other students in the community and spent much of his time supporting them. He loved being around people. He especially had a passion for helping young people strive to reach their fullest educational potential and to develop a relationship with Christ. He spent many years investing in students’ lives by being the sponsor of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ huddle at Southwood High School. The father of 4 children and having 12 grandchildren, Bob’s life was dedicated to his Lord, his family, his friends, and his church family.
The Bob Dawes Memorial Golf Scramble will be held at Honeywell Golf Club on July 27th as an afternoon event with dinner to follow.
