WILSON - Robert Lee "Bob" Bristow, 88, died Friday, May 5, 2017.
Funeral, Tuesday, 6:30 PM, Wilson Memorial Service, followed by a time of visiting and sharing.
Bob received a Masters Degree in Chemistry from American University in Washington, DC, on January 30, 1960. He took early retirement from American Cyanamid in May, 1985 after 25 years of service.
He was "old school", using a slide rule instead of a calculator. He was often called upon for his expertise from pharmacists. He enjoyed wood working and gardening using every available yard space.
His mind was sharp and constantly analyzing every detail, never wavering. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to his family and neighbors.
Surviving is his wife, June Post Bristow; daughters, Barbara Bristow of Wilson, Nancy Pietsch of Centreville, VA, and Anne Bristow Speight (Tommy) of Franklin, VA; four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Memorials are suggested to the charity of one's choice.
