Robert "Bob" Lamar Grizzard
Robert “Bob” Lamar Grizzard, 67, passed away on March 28, 2019, in Houston, Texas, at MD Anderson, where he bravely fought stage IV lung cancer for six years.
    Bob was preceded in death by his parents, George Franklin Grizzard and Gladys Grabeel Grizzard; his nephew, Wayne Horton; and several aunts and uncles.
    Bob is survived by his wife of 14 years, Teresa Bruno Grizzard of Fulshear, Texas; his brother, Edward (Mary) Horton; niece, Emily (Rob) Saccenti; nephew, Jonathan Horton; his children, Kendra (Nathan) Bolton, Kiel (Danielle) Grizzard, Kasey (Shelby) Grizzard; stepdaughters, Hailey (Blake) Allen and Marcherita Gray-Pritchett; and grandchildren, Lauryn, Gavin, Annalise, Teagan and Hailey Holder.
    Bob loved his family above all else.
    Bob was born in Tazewell, Virginia, and attended Virginia Technical Institute, where he received an industrial engineering degree. He worked in manufacturing for over 30 years at Reynolds Aluminum and then Brown & Williams Tobacco Company, and seven years as an engineer for the government.
    Bob was an avid Hokies fan, hunter, outdoorsman, hiker, golfer, tennis player, traveler, dog lover, food lover, beer connoisseur, fast car driver and tandem skydiver. Bob loved living life to the fullest up to the very end.
    Bob fought cancer with superhero strength. He had a will of steel and a warrior’s shield of resilience. Bob made cancer a footnote in his life, not the main event. He selflessly volunteered for CanCare of Katy, Texas, and Lung Cancer Alliance, where he provided emotional support and counseling for other lung cancer survivors, while being treated for his own.
    At Bob’s request, there will be no public funeral service.
    In lieu of flowers, Bob requested donations be made in his name to the non-profit organization Lung Cancer Alliance.
    Katy Funeral Home in Katy, Texas, handled the arrangements.
