Robert Harold Boles of Chuckey, TN, passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday.

He was born on August 13, 1938, to James Lawrence and Edith (Whittaker) Boles. Mr. Boles began his work life as a brick mason before founding R. H. Boles Construction Company which built an estimated 300 homes in Greene County and surrounding areas.

Robert H. Boles was an extremely generous man who had a passion for helping others. While his loved ones will miss him a great deal, we are elated that he was able to spend this Father’s Day in Heaven with his Heavenly Savior and loved ones who went before him.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a grandson: Garrett Braydon Reynolds; brothers and sisters: James Wolford Boles, Billy Boles, James L. “Junior” Boles, Charles Boles, Betty Luttrell, Carolyn Foshie, Naomi Hartman, Marie Metcalf, and Susan Arwood.
