In memory of
Sawyer, Robert Mr. Robert W. Sawyer of Grand Rapids, Michigan, age 91, entered the Lord's presence peacefully and painlessly on Wednesday, August 7, 2019. He was born to Clifford and Mabel (Grunnett) Sawyer on February 16, 1928, in Minneapolis, MN. Robert was a great Dad and will be deeply missed. He was a loving, consistent, faithful, and a Godly example. Robert was a missionary in Spain, active in his local church, an avid golfer, and enjoyed traveling with his wife, Lois. He was also a proud veteran of the United States Army and served during the Korean War. Robert is survived by his beloved wife of nearly 68 years, Lois; loving children, John (Michele) Sawyer and Ben (Linda) Sawyer; ten grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Susan Jean Sawyer; son, Steven James Sawyer; and brother, Jim (Rosena) Sawyer. The family would like to thank Faith Hospice and the Staff at Rest Haven Assisted Living for their care and compassion towards Robert and family. At Roberts request, a private memorial service will be held at a later date with family. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to offer expressions of sympathy may make a memorial contribution to Global Bible Initiative, 2990 Franklin SW Street, Grandville MI, 49418.
