HPD: Suspect arrested in fatal hit and run

Today we mourn the passing of our dear friend Bobby Roddy. His kind spirit and zeal to know more of Christ was an inspiration to myself and all who knew him. We are all the better for the brief time he spent with us at Coteau Baptist Chruch.

This new year January 1st, at the age of 70 Bobby Roddy along with his sweet sister Anne prayed to receive Christ as his Savior. I remember the excitement on his face as he would talk to us about how Christ had changed his life forever. Today at 71 Bobby stands in the presence of his Lord and celebrates the eternal life received that blessed day.

They say that the chances of achieving salvation is small once you pass a certain age. Bobby reminds us that no matter your age or how many years you’ve lost the heart of God still reaches for you. Yours is simply to receive His free gift.

Our hearts ache today but our loss is his gain. Streets of Gold…a heavenly choir or angels…Jesus next to His Father on the throne…Bobby is part of that at this very moment and one day we will be as well.

May God’s peace surround you as you adjust to this great loss. The same God that now holds Bobby in His hand is with you also.
