Robert G. Vogt, Jr. (Bobby) died peacefully on Sunday, March 8, 2020.
Bobby was born on October 4, 1942. He was born into the Vogt family in Green Springs of Louisa County. He and his two sisters were raised by their loving mother, Mary Knight Vogt. His sisters are Linda Peyton and her husband, Cecil of Gordonsville and Judy Sacra and her husband James of Louisa.
Bobby was married to Dolly Gremillion of Barboursville on February 7, 1964. Dolly was the love of his life. They were married for 56 years and resided in Barboursville.
Together they had two children whom they loved. They are Lorinda V. White and her husband Gary of Orange and Robby Vogt and his wife Kathy of Barboursville. He is also survived by two grandchildren, Vicky W. Pross and her husband Ryan of South Dakota and Christopher White of Orange. Bobby loved his family very much.
When he was a young boy, Bobby wanted three things in life: (1) to have a loving wife, (2) to have a loving family and (3) to understand God’s word, the Bible, because there were many things he did not understand.
Bobby said that he was able to accomplish all three things because he and Dolly began to study God’s word together and studied for over 56 years. They researched many Bible subjects and put God’s word to practice in their marriage, the lives of their children and grandchildren and those of many others they studied the Bible with throughout the years.
Bobby and Dolly were baptized together as Jehovah’s Witnesses on September 12, 1964. Over the years they have come to have a very large spiritual family.
Because of his faith in his God, Jehovah and his son, Jesus Christ, Bobby told Dolly, his children and family, not to worry or be sad for him because he was not worried as he looked forward to the Bible’s promise of a wonderful resurrection and everlasting life, where he would enjoy the benefits of God’s Kingdom that Jesus told all of his followers to pray for in Matthew 6:9-10. Bobby’s favorite scriptures was Isaiah 41:9,10.
His family would like to thank all those who have been a source of great encouragement to the family, by their calls, cards and food prepared. Bobby would like to thank the Hospice of the Piedmont and Dr. Robert Dreiser and his staff at the Emily Couric Cancer Center at the University of Virginia Hospital.
Memorial service will be private.
Preddy Funeral Home of Gordonsville is assisting the family.
