Location: Greer, SC

Bobby J. McCauley, 80, of Greer, died December 28, 2013, at Greenville Memorial Hospital. He was the husband of Caroline Hartsell McCauley.

He was a graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Pharmacy. He was retired from Ciba-Geigy Pharmaceuticals where he worked in sales and management. He served the United States Air Force as pharmacy officer at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, after flight training at Spence Air Force Base in Moultrie, Georgia.

He was a member of Taylors First Baptist Church where he had served as a deacon. He was a Gideon, a member of the Greenville South Camp. He was a member of the Greenville Wood Workers Guild. He was a member of the Greenville Salvation Army Advisory Board and was a strong advocate for the planning and completion of the Kroc Center. For over ten years he coordinated volunteers to ring Red Kettle Bells in Taylors.

Hundreds of Taylors First Baptist Church members and friends waited for Bob?s call each November. On December 12, at the Salvation Army?s Annual Luncheon, Taylors First Baptist Church and the Red Kettle Volunteers were presented the 2013 Volunteer Group of the Year Award.

He was an outdoorsman, enjoying fishing and adventure travel in Alaska, Montana and Colorado, always in the company of good friends and many times with grandsons in tow. But the times he enjoyed the most were spent near home, on Lake Jocassee, trout fishing and soaking up the natural beauty of the upstate, in the company of his beloved grandsons.

He was predeceased by his parents, Broadus and Elsie McCauley of Travelers Rest, and by a brother, John Charles McCauley of Bluffton, South Carolina.


Survivors include his wife and a daughter, Patricia McCauley Blumer of Charlotte, North Carolina, her husband Robert J. Blumer, grandson, Robert J. Blumer, III of Los Angeles, California, grandson Hastings McCauley Blumer, of Greenville and his wife Kristen Welch Blumer.
