Deacon Robert Earl Culberson Sr. went to be with the Lord on September 19, 2023.

Robert was one of a kind, and everyone he came across became a friend. He enjoyed watching shows and sports with his son who was his pride and joy, Robert “J.R.” Culberson was his heart. Those two always found a way to win a domino or spade game even of it required cheating. He loved watching his youngest daughter play basketball. He was resilient and never let anything stop him.
