On Wednesday, May 26, 2021, Robert Calvin Lacy, affectionately referred to by his family and friends as Bob or Bubba, loving father of four children, passed away at age 86.
Bob was born on December 20, 1934 in Richmond, VA to David and Blanche Lacy.

Bob was a proud military veteran, serving his country in the U.S. Navy. Bob enjoyed reading, art, drawing, being a restaurant connoisseur, relaxing with a cigar and a favorite drink, spending time with his friends in “The Crescent”, and most of all, loving and spending time with his family.
