Robert “Bob” Fitzgerald
Spartanburg, SC: Robert (Bob or Fitz) Cooksey Fitzgerald entered this temporary home on June 26, 1934, and has now entered his eternal home with his Savior, Jesus Christ, on September 26, 2020. Born in Spartanburg County, he was the son of Hollis Boyd, Sr, and Atta Scott Fitzgerald.

He is predeceased by an infant daughter, Susan Karyl Fitzgerald.
Mr. Fitzgerald was a life-long member of Cannon’s Campground United Methodist Church where he was a faithful member of the choir for longer than anybody can remember. He graduated from Spartanburg High School. He worked for Geer Drug Co. and Smith Drug Co. before retiring. He enjoyed spending time with his family, watching his Gamecocks, and chasing a little ball around the golf course.
