Little did Bob realize that this was going to be the direction of his life’s work.Robert Marvin (Bob) Lawrence was born at Perryton, Texas on Jan. 2, 1921. As a young boy growing up in Perryton, he had one goal and that was to play football for the Perryton Rangers. After graduating form Perryton High School in 1939, Bob went to John Tarleton Agricultural College at Stephenville, Texas where he met his life’s companion, Charlene Waller from Breckenridge, Texas. They transferred to Hardin-SimmonsUniversity in Abilene, Texas where Bob graduated in 1944. Bob and Charlene were married at her parent’s ranch near Breckenridge on May 28, 1942. In 1947, he became a Master Mason and in 1952, became a Scottish Rite Mason. He was a member of the lodge in Hereford, Texas which presented him a 60 year pin. Bob was a member of FirstBaptistChurch in Amarillo. While in Hardin-Simmons, Bob served Calvary Baptist Church, Sunset Baptist Church and Southside Baptist Church as Music Director. While serving at Sunset he was ordained to the Ministry of Gospel Music and Education. Upon graduation from Hardin-Simmons, Bob was called as Music and Education Director of Calvary Baptist Church of Mineral Wells, Texas. This permitted them to attend Southwestern Baptist Theol ogical Seminary in Fort Worth. They later moved to First Baptist Church in Decatur, Texas where he served in the same capacity until graduation from the Seminary in 1948, with a B.A. Degree in Music and a Masters of Religious Education. Bob was then called to First Baptist Church in Hereford, Texas, where he served for nine years as Minister of Music and Education. During this time this church started five mission churches in Colorado. This created a special interest in Bob’s heart for the work in Colorado. While living in Hereford, the Lawrence’s adopted a baby girl they named Lanell Jean. Three years later they adopted a baby boy they named Donald Robert. From Hereford, the Lawrence family moved to Colorado where they served South Denver Baptist Church and First Baptist Church, Thornton, Colorado. The Colorado Baptist Convention was composed of five states – Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, North and South Dakota. In 1967, Bob was asked to go to the four northern states to help begin a convention of those states. At the organization of the Northern Plains Baptist Convention in the fall of 1967 he was called as Director of the Departments of Music and Education. The Lawrence family moved to Rapid City, South Dakota. Bob served for eight years traveling those four states. In 1975, he accepted the position of Director of the Departments of Sunday School and Music with the Colorado Baptist Convention. At that time they moved to Denver where he served in this work until he retired in February 1984, and they moved to Salida, Colorado. The Lawrence’s enjoyed retirement at Salida until they moved to Amarillo in June 2005, where they lived in Park Central Retirement Community. Bob was preceded in death by his parents, Robert Lawrence and Mae Belle Lawrence; a brother, Gene Lawrence; and a sister, Carol Meisenheimer. Survivors include his wife of 71 years, Charlene Lawrence, of Amarillo; a daughter, Lanell Adler and husband, Alan of Greeley, Colorado; a son, Don Lawrence and wife, Cheryl of Huntsville, Texas; a grandson, Tyler Huggins of Ft.
