Robert E. Bies, 80, died peacefully on Jan. 17, 2020, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of almost 57 years, Terry; his five children and their spouses, Brian and Maureen, Mary and Ted Harden, Beth and Mark Wardley, Michael and Diane, and Julia Marie; his grandchildren, Kathleen, Stefany, Sean and great-granddaughter, Penelope; his brother and sister-in-law, Steve and Arlene, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, sisters, Connie and Rosemary, and his grandson, Christopher.
Bob loved his family, his faith and golf; he never saw a golf course he didn’t like. He retired from Deloitte & Touche in 2004 after 34 years of service. And, he had a love/hate relationship with the NY Jets and Mets. Maybe he can now have a word with God and help get them each to a championship (or winning season).
Visitation will begin at 10 a.m. followed by a Mass of Christian burial at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020, at Holy Family Catholic Church, 9100 Crockett Road, Brentwood, TN.
A special thanks to Alive Hospice whose loving care and compassion helped not only Bob, but his family, through his end-of-life journey. These are special people.
And to all those who helped care for both Bob and Terry whether by taking him out to a meal, visiting with him, helping when he fell, bringing dinner, or stopping by to just chat, know that your kindness will not be forgotten.
