Robert was a generous man who loved his God, family and country. He supported many ministries and charities in his community, while providing wonderful care for his wife of 56 years, was a loving dad to his boys, and crazy about the little ones who called him grandpaw.

When he wasn't loving his family or serving his country, he enjoyed golfing, hunting and fishing. Robert McGrady will be missed by many.
