In memory of

The memorial service, officiated by his children, will be held at the Jernigan Family Cemetery at 2pm on Friday, October 16, 2020. Bob was the rock and anchor of his family. His children were his life but his favorite role was grandfather and he was lovingly known as “Daddy Bob” to everyone. He loved to laugh, travel, and celebrate holidays surrounded by family. He was equally passionate and hard working at every job he took on. Bob was a Pastor and humbly dedicated his life to serving and loving God.
