Bob moved his family back to Little Rock, Ark. and retired from Sears Roebuck after 17 years in commercial sales. Bob was a WWII veteran and was honorably discharged after 2 years of service. In retirement, Bob and Jessie traveled cross country for many years. Both really enjoyed spending time with friends and meeting new people on their travels. In 1998, Bob and Jessie moved to Russellville, AR and lived there until their move to heaven's eternal home. Bob was a member of First Assembly of God in Russellville, Ark.
Cherishing his memories are his children: Sharon Wilkerson and Scott Tripp; grandchildren: Paul and Ron Wilkerson, Callie Barnett, Noah and Jessica Tripp; great grandchildren: Faith, Heidi, and Landon Wilkerson. Bob was loved by family and friends and will be truly missed. There will never be another Bob Tripp.
