    Robert J. Lobaugh Jr.,83, On March 17, 2019 Bob was met by the warm embraces of so many loved ones who have proceeded him in death as he separated from his beloved children. Robert J. "Bob" Lobaugh Jr. was born March 7, 1936 to Joe and Bertha Jones Lobaugh, in the vast open plains of the Texas Panhandle. He never met a stranger and he genuinely cared to learn more about persons. It wasn't long after introductions that he'd ask, 'where are you from? The topic of history was his great passion; and his family ties run deep within the United States and the State of Texas. He even managed to combine a history lesson, with Christmas gifts when gifting his children their very own copy of the book The Santa Clause Bank Robbery as stocking stuffers. There the role of Bob's grandfather Eastland County Jailer Tom Jones is described in detail. His entire life was lead for God, family and country. As a child his family settled in Taft; the Friendliest Cotton Picking Town in Texas. There he attended local schools, was a member of the Taft High School Band and graduated from Taft High School. One of his greatest pleasures and honors has been serving as a Taft ISD substitute teacher. He was a member of the Taft Presbyterian Church and lived a life that lead to Eagle Scout.

His actions centered on making his community a safer, more enriched place for all. He personally ensured that Santa Clause called homes of local children who otherwise might not have experienced a merry Christmas. In his early business career he worked endlessly towards urban renewal and a path that would allow all to obtain the American dream of owning a family home. And with the winds of hurricane season Bob's voice could be heard sounding the air waves supporting the HAM radio efforts. He enjoyed sailing, travel and anything involving his grandson Coby; they were pals and adored each other! Bob was a proud man and constantly let those he loved that he cared about them and was proud of them.
