Robert Preston Cherry II,62, of Manor, Texas passed Sunday, January 15th, 2023, from a long battle with a terminal illness in which he bravely fought.
Throughout his life Bob was a loving son, husband, father, grandpa, and friend. He was actively working at the Austin Police Department and was also a dental technician previously and a pastor sharing God's word. He enjoyed many hobbies which included following NASA with a deep interest in space, building and shooting off model rockets, collecting trading cards, following several sports teams, studying the bible with knowledge of the Greek and Hebrew languages, playing baseball, and pulling pranks and jokes. He had a great love for movies, television series, (especially Sci-Fi) and music (many genres). He never missed a Grandpa Day with Tristan! To say he was one of a kind is an understatement.
He was preceded in death by his father, Robert Preston Cherry.
Bob is survived by the love of his life, his wife, Lynnette Cherry of Manor; children, Christa and husband Travis Vincent of Leander, Jenny and husband Dillon Nichols of Elgin, and Robert Cherry III of Elgin.; grandchild, Tristan Vincent who was his only grandchild and best buddy; mother, Loretta Cherry; sister, Wenona Cherry and brother Shawn Cherry, and nephew, Josh Cherry.
