INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. — Robert “Bobby” Kenneth Quesenberry Jr., of Indian Trail, N.C. passed from this world to Heaven March 29, 2014 at The McWhorter Hospice House in Monroe, N.C. A memorial service for friends and family will be held 3 p.m. Sunday, April 6 in the Sossamon Chapel at First Baptist Church of Indian Trail, 732 Indian Trail-Fairview Road, Indian Trail, N.C.
Mr. Quesenberry was born May 27, 1949 to the late Robert Kenneth and Ruby Southern Quesenberry of Pulaski, Va. His communications job relocated him to the Charlotte, N.C. area in 1976. After high school, Bobby enlisted in the US Army where he proudly served his country and fellow man. Bobby enjoyed many occupations throughout his life, but his favorite was in the construction field. He cherished each and every one of the many lifelong friendships made through his career, his church, his neighborhood, and his life. He was loved and will be missed by so many.
Mr. Quesenberry is survived by his son, Timothy Michael McIntosh; daughter, Julie Quesenberry Helms; granddaughter, Allison Maye Helms; grandson, Garrett Christopher Helms, and sister, Wanda Quesenberry Shomaker. Over the last couple of years, Bobby and Judy Garland Quesenberry once again developed a uniquely blessed relationship. They became close friends, sharing many special moments right up to his very last breath.
In 2008, Bobby was diagnosed with systemic amyloidosis, a rare blood disorder. During his treatment at Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Ga., he made arrangements to donate his body to MedCure, a research foundation in hopes of finding a cure for the disease that took his life. Just this past week, Charlotte, N.C. started its own foundation in hope of finding a cure. The family is asking in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to the Rare and Complex Cancers Fund, Carolinas HealthCare Foundation, PO Box 32861, Charlotte, N.C. 28232.
