He also served for several years as a machinist and in product quality control and inventory. His last professional occupation was as a welding teacher at Cherokee High School for 17 years.

Bob is best remembered as the caring man who always was doing something to help someone else in any way he could. Bob’s son’s Joey said it best- “The mechanic, the handyman, and the rescuer of the locked out and those with flat tires.” The size of his shoes are immeasurable.

Bob will be cremated per his request and there will be a memorial service at a later date in Canton GA. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you make a donation in his memory to either Antioch Christian Church in Canton Ga or the American Cancer Society.

Canton Funeral Home is honored to serve the Dye family.
