RIP Robert Ward
Posted on: Friday, Dec 26, 2008
I just heard that Robert Ward passed away after a long struggle with various health issues. I’ll post a link to a obituary when I have one.
Here is the press release…..
Black Top and Delmark recording artist Robert Ward passed away Christmas Day at about 3:30 Pm.
He had been ill with kidney and other problems recently, and had been in failing health since a couple of minor strokes over this past decade.
He was watching a video of a European concert appearance he had made back in the 90’s with his wife, Roberta, and she stepped into the kitchen just a few feet away to grab a snack for them. When she returned minutes later, he was gone.
Roberta said he hadn’t made a sound and passed in peace.
The Wards have 68 grandchildren and live in Dry Branch GA, about 6 miles from Macon. Funeral arrangements are being made. Robert was a veteran of the US Army. Donations are being accepted to assist with interment costs, they can be
