Rose, Rev. Robert Murphy “Rob”'s Guestbook

Rob, Uncle Rob, had a vibrant personality who loved the Lord with all of his heart. His compassion for others was never questioned or the love for his family. Uncle Rob loved life and loved to have fun. Like his brothers sports was near and dear; baseball, golf, football! I'm so glad he had friends who loved golf like he did. For those attending the visitation they will get to see his picture with the scorecard on the day he had his hole in one. I'm so glad he could experience and cherish this memory! What do I remember the most about my uncle? His love of Jesus and praising Him through song. Rob's voice touched many hearts and his walk with the Lord allowed him to shepherded many. You will be missed Uncle! Love to all of your family and your friends.
