Robert Franklin Caldwell, 54, of Wallace, NC left this earthly life for his eternal rest on Sunday, September 24, 2017.
He was born on February 2, 1963 in Mecklenburg County and was the son of Kathaleen Teachey Caldwell of Wallace and the late Frank B. Caldwell. He was also predeceased by his sister, Rebecca " Becky" Caldwell.
Robert was a faithful member of Island Creek Baptist Church.
Surviving, in addition to his devoted and loving mother, is his brother, Wesley Caldwell and wife, Janith of Leesburg, Virginia; niece, Michelle Caldwell of Indianapolis, Indiana; his church family and numerous friends.
Robert was a kind-hearted man who loved his family and friends. He found boundless joy in the simplest of things, but his greatest joy was family. Being an avid sports fan, Robert was a die-hard "Carolina" fan. He enjoyed music and especially singing in the church quartet. Robert loved his church and his church family. He was a loyal and faithful friend. Being a people person, he enjoyed being around others. Robert never half-did anything but took great pride in doing his best at everything he did. He will surely be missed and treasured memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.

For as long as we can remember, this young man has been an avid Bulldog fan. Pete says as long as he has been on the field @ 5 @ home varsity football games, Robert was not long behind. I would always look for him upon my arrival, in his usual spot, and wave. It just won't be the same not seeing him "over there"; however, I know he is watching from Heaven. We will be praying for you all as you move through this time of overwhelming adjustment. We care & so does our precious Lord. Pete & Betty Blanton, Wallace

So Sorry for the loss of Robert. I went to high school with him and he was always a friendly, smiling individual to be around. Over the last two years, I have enjoyed passing by him while he was walking on his daily walks. Rest easy Robert.
