Rev. Robert Merrill Hurd Jr.

SoVaNow.com / January 14, 2013
Rev. Robert Merrill Hurd Jr., born Feb. 6, 1958 at Johnson Air Force Base, Japan, entered his eternal life unto his Lord Jesus Christ on Jan. 13, 2013. Rev. Hurd pastured several SBC churches and served as volunteer chaplain at HRHS.

He is survived by his mother Shirley Klugh; his father, Robert Merrill Hurd Sr. and step mother Carol Sue Hurd; his wife, Melanie, his son, Nathaniel Hurd and his wife, Shere, his daughters, Rachael Satterwhite and her husband Glenn, Alicia Hurd and Lauren Hurd, four grandchildren, Jacob, Philip and Matthew Satterwhite and Kennis Hurd, along with two sisters, Debra Gonzales and Mary Jo Lane.

At 54, Robert lived a happy and purposeful life, striving each day to serve the Lord God with all his heart, soul, mind and strength. He left behind a legacy to those he left behind — one of putting God first and loving his neighbor as himself. As the Lord leads, his family will continue to serve God, remembering the man who taught them that walking with their Lord should be their first priority in life.

A memorial service will be held at Ash Avenue Baptist Church on Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 7 p.m. with the Rev. John Eure and the Rev. James Kopco officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service.

Arrangements are by Powell Funeral Home.
