Passed at age 68, on August 10, 2021, after a long illness.
Bob was predeceased by his parents, Carl and Jean Juengling, and his in-laws, Robert and Donna Connor. He is survived by his devoted wife, Susan; daughter, Emily; sister, Elizabeth (Kirk) Widlund; dear family friend, Julie Whitbeck; cousins, and nieces.
Born in Toronto, Bob moved to Rochester, New York as a young child. A graduate of West High School in Rochester and Yellowstone Baptist College in Billings, Montana, Bob touched countless lives during his career as a pastor. He was pastor of New Hope Baptist Church in Billings for 21 years, and had also served as a hospital chaplain.
Bob was an accomplished musician and vocalist, a talented artist, a great cook, and loved history and traveling. He enjoyed family times together. His greatest treasure was his relationship with the Lord Jesus, and we know he's rejoicing in His presence and we look forward to our reunion. In 2016, he and Susie returned to his beloved Adirondack Mountains, coming full circle to where he had begun his ministry.
Bob's memorial service will be held on August 19 at 1 p.m. at Inlet Community Church in Inlet, New York, with a time of fellowship to follow. A graveside service will take place on August 26 at 1 p.m. at Grove Place Cemetery in Chili, New York, where Bob will be buried beside his grandfather. James R. Gray Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the National Kidney Foundation or Tapestries of Life Ministries, Inc.
