Dr. Robert “Bob” Leon Golly died Wednesday, July 31, 2019, from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident near Juniper Point Campground, Gordonsville, Texas.
Born May 30, 1937 in Zearing, Iowa, to Vivian Bissell Golly and Earnest Golly. Survived by his wife of 62 years, Deloris “Jean” Golly; four children: Greg and wife, Kirsten; Randy and wife, Sheri; Andrew and wife, Michelle; and Amy Golly; seven grandchildren: Josh, Amber, Megan, Madeline, Noah, Ethan and Emma; two greatgranddaughters: Danika and Presley; all living in the Dallas, Texas area and his mother: Vivian, two sisters: Lois and Jo, living in Iowa and extended family and friends throughout the United States
Bob was a dentist/adventurer who never knew a stranger and lived life to the fullest. His passion for motorcycles brought him and his family much joy throughout his lifetime. The past 15+ years he and Jean have worked for the Corp of Engineers as gate hosts, and grounds keepers on Lake Texoma, Texas.
As a member of the United Methodist Church in Kingston, Okla., Bob touched many lives through community service and lively discussions pertaining to the Bible. He should finally have his answers he spent a lifetime seeking!
Bob welcomed people with an open mind and open heart ready to share stories and help those in need. He will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him.
A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019, at 2 p.m., at Kingston United Methodist Church in Kingston, Okla. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.brownsfuneralservice.com.
