I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Bob's passing. I would talk to him often when he worked as a security guard at AT&T in Conyers. He was such a wonderful man and I know he will be missed by many.

I'm sorry to hear of Mr. Bob's passing and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him when he worked security at the AT&T building in Conyers where I work. His love of life and sports, especially college football, was evident and I cherish the memories of those conversations. May God bless all of his family and friends and may they find comfort knowing he's now rejoicing in heaven.

Bob's presence and kind demeanor has been sorely missed as a member of our security staff here at work. Sorry to hear of his passing from this life but glad to know he is enjoying his great eternal reward with his Lord.

I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Bob. We shared a good conversation all the time regarding the Elvis Presley pictures I have. He would always say, "you still have those pictures or have they made you rich". He was truly a good man!!! God bless.....

Joyce, Sharon and Wade, When I learned that Bob had passed away, I had such pleasant memories of visiting in your home. Hard to believe how many years ago that has been now. I immediately called Mom, and I feel sure you will see her tomorrow. Our prayers are with all of you during this time. Bob was a wonderful man, a gifted pastor and a treasured friend. Winston Skinner

I had the privilege to have been one of " Coach Norton many children". He always had something good to say but, he could make your day anytime he was around. "DAD" will be missed. Thanks to his family for sharing him with so many of us.

Jeff and I and our two sons Nicholas and Jason loved preacher Bob. We loved going to church at Beacon Heights where he baptized me and the boys. He taught us so much and was a great man. We have thought of ya'll often. I'm sure heaven is rejoicing! I know he will be missed. You all are in our prayers.

Alan and I had the great joy of being ministered to and loved by Bro. Bob while your family was in Madison. Our oldest daughter, Anna, is the same age as Jeffrey. I have some sweet pictures of them when they were so little. Then we would see Bro Bob from time to time umpiring high school softball when Anna played during her high school years. He always remembered us and her. He was a great gentleman, great pastor and always a friend. What a celebration in Heaven it must have been when he was welcomed home. We think of you all often. We know you will surely miss him, but have the assurance of seeing him again.

To Mrs Joyce, Wade, Sharon and all your family: Dennis and I were privileged to know Bro. Bob. What a fine gentleman he was. Good times or bad times he was there for you. I remember the story of the little rose he always wore on his jacket. He lived his faith every day. He will be missed by so many but, oh, the celebration when he woke up in glory! His suffering is over! Praise Jesus!
