Please accept condolences from Donna and Tommy Dowling. Bob and I were third cousins, our grandfathers being brothers. I always enjoyed seeing Bob at the Y and enjoyed his sense of humor and smile. We enjoyed a visit with Harrill and Dale last summer and spoke of Bob and his recent happiness.

As one of the many kids like Robert who grew up in Cleveland Forest, I cannot ride by the site of the old horse rink in Cleveland Park and not think back to all the fun Robert and the rest of us had playing football there. I feel the loss of Robert keenly and send my condolences to all of his fine family.

So saddened to hear that one of the nicest people I’ve ever known has passed..BOB Waldrop! He always had a great disposition, a smile & a hello to all. My best memories are from seeing Bob at Clemson home & away football games running around with his camera & his vest filled with lenses & supplies..and that special time in 1959 when he invited me over to his parents home above Cleveland Park to take a super neat ride in his Dad’s model T Ford car. Thanks Bob for being a true Gentleman & Friend to many and Rest in Peace Tiger. Bill Willis GHS ‘59
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Suzanne, Raymond, and Michael, I am very sorry... your Dad was always one of the dads that was nice, friendly, and funny, whether it was at Gower pool, First Baptist, Indian Guides, etc. And I thought it was so cool to see him down on the sidelines at Littlejohn taking pictures! He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

I did not know Mr. Waldrop but I am very fortunate to spend many Sunday afternoons with his sons Ray and Michael. Wonderful, engaging, inquisitive men that I'm sure Mr. Waldrop inspired and nurtured. The Sease's sympathy goes out to all his family. God's Peace be with all of you! ... FS

So sorry to hear about Robert's passing.  Robert and I discovered that we were cousins when we were Seniors  at Greenville High.  (My grandmother and his grandfather were sister and brother. )  It was a sweet surprise!  He was a really nice guy and I wish we could have known each other better.  I was so delighted to see him at the 60th Reunion, and we were able to talk for a few minutes.  My sincerest sympathy goes out to all of his family at this sad time.  May God send His comfort and peace to each of you.     Sincerely,  Sandra Smith Willis
