Robert Paul 'Bob' Hurley

Died: Jan. 20, 2014

Robert Paul "Bob" Hurley, 69, of Poor Farm Road, Greeneville, passed away Monday evening at his home.

He was a member of First Baptist Church of Greeneville, where he has served as a deacon and Sunday School teacher and was proud to say that he was a member of the Koinonia Sunday School Class.

Bob was a graduate of McDonald High School and served in the U.S. Navy from 1962-1966.

He began work at The Greeneville Sun in February of 1967 and completed his last column in December of 2013.

Survivors include his wife of 47 years: Cassie Marilda Moore Hurley; his son and daughter-in-law: Dr. Jonas and Julia Hurley, and his grandsons: Henry Emerson Hurley and Walter Irving Hurley, all of Springfield, Ky.; two sisters and a brother-in-law: Geraldine Culberson of Mohawk and Jane and Archie Payne of Medina, Ohio; a brother and sister-in-law: Sam and Betty Hurley of Mohawk; two sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law: Maxine and Merrill Harrison of Mohawk and Marthena and David Myers of Raleigh, N.C.; a special aunt: Dorothy Walker of Rogersville; two aunts: Glada Riley of Mohawk and Louise Riley of Whitesburg; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was the son of the late Joseph and Mary Hurley and was preceded in death by a brother, John Hurley, and a brother-in-law, George Culberson.

The family will receive friends from 1-3 and 5-8 p.m. Thursday at Kiser-Rose Hill Funeral Home.

The funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at First Baptist Church in Greeneville. The Rev. Dr. David Green, the Rev. Jim Best, the Rev. Roger Cutshall, and Dr. Howard Eugene "Johnny" Shipley will officiate.

Interment will follow in Oak Grove Cemetery. The Greene County Honor Guard and the U.S. Navy Military Honors Team will conduct a military graveside service.

The body will be taken to the church to lie in state one hour prior to the service.

Pallbearers will be Mike Roberts, Gene Gaby, Ron Smith, Tommy Haun, John M. Jones Jr., Wayne Phillips, Dr. James Ray McKinney, Erich Ottem, Jonathan Ottem, Dax Westerman, Frank Riley, and Tom Solomon.

Honorary pallbearers will be his church family (Koinonia Sunday School Class), his Mohawk-McDonald friends and classmates, his newspaper co-workers, his neighbors, and all whose lives have been touched by his work at The Greeneville Sun - you are all honorary pallbearers.

Memorial contributions may be made to First Baptist Church, 211 N. Main St., Greeneville, TN 37743, or to the charity of the donor's choice.
