Graveside services will be held for Robert “Bob” Scribner Sr., 84, of Roswell, at 11 a.m., Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013, at South Park Cemetery, with Matt Wade officiating. Bob passed away on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013.
Bob was born July 9, 1928, to Frank C. Scribner and Bertha Linton Scribner in Coleta, Ill. He moved to Roswell while serving in the U.S. Air Force where he met and married his loving wife Loveta B. Fuller Scribner on Aug. 18, 1951. He served his country in the USAF during the Korean Conflict. He later worked and retired from PepsiCola Bottling Co. and then went on to work as an auto tech instructor at ENMU-R.
He was an avid do-it-your-selfer, and jack of all trades, there wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix or do. His family always came first, and he was never too busy to help. He was the rock of his family, well-loved and well respected and will be dearly missed by all of us.
Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 61 years, Loveta Scribner, of the home; two daughters, Pam Oswald and her husband Ken, of Roswell, and Janet Thompson and her husband Sid, of Roswell; one sister, Mildred Nichols, of Millageville, Ill.; two very well loved grandsons, Robert Scribner III and his wife Vedrana, of Roswell, and Matthew Scribner, of Roswell, and his sister-in-law Judy Scribner, of Millageville, Ill.
He was preceded in death by his son Robert Jr.; two grandchildren, Jayme and Jason Oswald; his brother Victor Scriber and his sister Elsie Briggs.
