About Bob

It is with a heavy heart that I share that our dear Bob Newcomb passed away Friday night. I just talked to a close friend of the family who wanted to be sure that everyone at Single Vine knew about Bob’s passing and how important Single Vine was to him...

This is how I began my message letting our Single Vine leaders know of the passing of our beloved Bob. If you never met Bob, you missed a real gem.

Quiet, humble, and on the shy side, he nonetheless made a point to shake my hand and greet me each night when he arrived and again when he left. It wasn’t long after Bob first came that a few of our guys invited him to one of our dances and offered to meet him there. He not only came, but when the sign-up sheets for serving at the next dance were put out, Bob was the first one to sign up to help. And from then on his name was always at the top of any volunteer list.

As we got to know Bob, we grew to love and appreciate him and his dedication. He was gracious, gentlemanly and considerate to a fault. We invited Bob to serve on a crew team, and he faithfully arrived early on his assigned Tuesday nights, putting out table cloths and preparing our snack and beverage tables with his team. He proudly wore his bright green Single Vine shirt when he served and eagerly offered to help. Bob was happy to be with us, and we were happy to be with him. We encouraged Bob, but more importantly, he encouraged us to be the family God intends.

When I think of Bob, I think of the beauty and diversity of the church. As we demonstrate love for each other, we glorify God himself. We’ll always recall Bob with fondness as we recall his place with us. We loved Bob and he loved us. How beautiful and glorifying is that?
