Robert Lee Jewell, Sr.

June 26, 1940 ~ November 1, 2020 (age 80)


Bob Jewell went home to be with his Lord and Savior in Fayetteville, NC on November 1st, 2020.

Born Robert Lee Jewell on June 24th 1940 in Glenn Fork, West Virginia to Vermin and Margaret Jewell he grew up mainly in Bluefield, WV.  Bob loved all sports and set records in basketball and track throughout his high school years. He later attended 2 years of business at Bluefield College later moving to Western New York to start his printing apprenticeship and publication career.

In 1960, as Bob would say, “the best thing that ever happened to me” when he married Sharon Lee Summers, a loving partnership they have enjoyed these past 60 years.

Bob especially loved his siblings and is survived by brother Tom, sister Victoria, and now reunited with brothers Sam and Reggie.

God and family were always his anchor, and at Village Baptist Church, Fayetteville he found another family he faithfully served these past 20 years as Sunday School teacher and actively involved with the Senior fellowship.

He is survived by wife Sharon, son Bob Jewell Jr.(Barbara), daughter Nancy Jewell (William Bean), Susan Jewell Clark (Andrew). 9 grandchildren Brian, Ben, Stacey, Amber, Andee Sue, Alison, Miranda, Samantha, Joseph and 3 great grandchildren Jacob, Jackson, and Avery Joy.

Due to state by state Covid restrictions and difficulty of travel, we are postponing the Memorial service to a future date yet to be determined.
