Robert Hathcock Obituary

Bob grew up in Badin and Albemarle, North Carolina.  He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on a football scholarship and also played on the golf team.
After graduation he entered pilot training with the United States Air Force.  During his military career he flew B-47's, B-58's (Hustler), and was a test pilot for the FB-111 program.  
After retiring from the USAF as a Lieutenant Colonel, he was successful as a business executive with First Data Resources, Commonwealth Electric Company, and State Distributing Company.

Bob was a scratch golfer who won many golf tournaments including USAF base championships.  He enjoyed quail and pheasant hunting with a good bird dog, snow skiing, and spending time with his many friends and family.

He was a southern gentleman known for his sharp mind, quick wit, and great sense of humor.  Nelda was the love of his life, and they were married over 62 years.  He was beloved by his daughters, Heidi and Hannah, and grandson Robert "Henry".  Bob held many roles in his life - excellent golfer, aircraft commander, successful business man; but the titles his wife and daughters loved most were Husband and Dad.

Bob is survived by his wife, Nelda; children, Heidi and Hannah; his son-in-law, Domenick; his grandson, Henry; brother, Charles; and many loving friends.
