Robert "Bob" Morgan Baucom, Jun. 18, 1954 - Jan. 9, 2017, passed away peacefully with his family by his side. He was born in Macon, GA and moved to Florida at a very young age where he graduated from Suwannee High School and received a basketball scholarship from Western Carolina University. Bob spent his entire career in sales where he excelled in many different positions due to his warm, outgoing personality, and dedication to the success of the company.
Bob loved his sports, especially his Florida Gators. However, the most important thing in his life was his family and friends. Bob will always be remembered as a kind, loving, dedicated family man. He loved his family with all of his heart and spent his life assuring their happiness. He was truly a special man and loved by all who knew him. If you had the privilege of knowing Bob, you know you will always have a guardian angel.
Bob is survived by his wife, Beverly Richardson Baucom; his daughters, Ashley Aycock (Michael) and Nikki Sawyer (Andrew); his son, Robby Baucom (Sara); mother, Madelyn Baucom; sister, June Gemmer; brothers, John Baucom (Janice), John Baucom (Cora), Dennis Baucom (Renae), Perry Baucom (Creacy), Eddie Baucom (Pauline); four grandchildren, Jack and Jake Sawyer, Finley and Sydney Aycock; one aunt, Betty White; one uncle, Milton Hitson (Michelle); and a host of nieces and nephews.
