October 27, 1940 - October 23, 2015
Robert “Bob” Edgar Wilhite was born on October 27, 1940, in Roswell, New Mexico and went home to be with the Lord on the evening of October 23, 2015, just days shy of his 75th birthday.
Shortly after graduating from Highland High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Bob served in the U.S. Navy. Upon his return, he studied at the University of New Mexico and also attended Heights Baptist Church where he met his future bride, Joyce. Bob chose the sales profession as his life-long career with a particular interest in toys and hobbies.
Bob was a member of First Baptist Church Carrollton for over 30 years. Many will remember him for his role in organizing the ushers, greeters and first responders for church services and special events. He also served as a deacon. He was actively involved in the Dallas North Gideon Camp for the last several years; working as Membership Chair and Bible Distribution Chair during that time. Connections with friends and family were valued, whether it be casual get-togethers, playing Mexican Train or attending family reunions.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents, J.R. and Alice Wilhite.
He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Joyce Wilhite; daughter Karen Bagley and husband Danny; son Glen Wilhite and wife Irma; granddaughter Adriana Wilhite and grandsons Austin Wilhite, Clint Bagley, and Cody Bagley; sister Marguerite McCurry; and a host of nephews and nieces.
Memorial Services will be on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 at 10:00 am at First Baptist Church Carrollton, 2400 N. Josey Lane, Carrollton, Texas 75006. Dr. Brent Taylor will be officiating.
