Bobby will be missed by many. I enjoyed seeing him Every 4th and watch him get as excited over fireworks as the kids . Always treated my family, like family. The beach will never quite be the same now. Prayers for the family ❤️
Mark and Rhonda Davis
We are in shock. We are Bob's neighbors in 805 at the Pinnacle and saw him two weeks every three months when we would come there.
He was kind and thoughtful and we looked forward to chatting with him. He amazed us with his talent and gifts of renovating and decorating. He took so much pride in the upkeep and general appearance of the Pinnacle. He made sure things were done to perfection.
On our last visit Bob said he really liked it when we were there because we were good friendly neighbors. It was he who was the good, friendly neighbor.
Belinda, we will miss our sweet neighbor.
I cannot tell you how shocked and saddened we are. We are so sorry and we share in your grief.
We pray you'll find comfort in knowing Bob was well thought of and blessed us all at the Pinnacle.
Our sincerest sympathy, Phil and JoAnn Gaines 805 Pinnacle.

Thoughts and prayers to Joan, Steve, Belinda and the rest of your family. Bobby helped so many people with his love of gardening. He got his dreams to be in NC, a garden by the sea and the girl he loved.
Love, Tamy Wimer
Steve and family. Like everyone, we were shocked to hear of Bobby's passing. We always enjoyed talking to Bobby and his pictures on Facebook of the sunrises at myrtle beach were beautiful. Our thoughts are with you, jane and the kids......and your mom. Please let us know if we can do anything for you.
Jim Jane and Kyle Kingsborough
So sorry and shocked to read of Bob's passing. I remember him in high school as an upbeat and fun kind of guy. I was hoping he would show up at the Carlisle H.S. 40th reunion this year.
Carolyn King
I'm so, so sorry to hear about Bobby. I always enjoyed any time that I had to talk with him...it usually included some good sarcasm!
  To the members of Bob Ewings family we send our heartfelt condolences.
Bob was our neighbor at the Pinnacle and we always looked forward to seeing him each time we come for two weeks every three months. His talents and gifts of remodeling and decorating the condos were unique and well done. He was helpful and thoughtful and took great pride in the appearance and upkeep of the Pinnacle.
We are honored to have known him and we share in your grief.

Our sincerest sympathy, Phil and JoAnn Gaines 805 Pinnacle neighbors
 No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. However, take comfort in knowing that Bobby is now resting in the arms of our Lord. Our deepest condolences to you and your family.

Dear Joan, Steve, Jane, Colton and Carrie,
Words are never enough...but we are sending our deepest sympathy to you all. May you find peace and healing.

 I will always remember Bobby because he had the best manners than anyone else we knew. I emailed him almost every week. He invited Joe and I to come down to visit. Sorry now that I
didn't go. We will miss him.

Mrs. Joseph (Colleen) Black
Praying for comfort and peace to Bobby's family and many, many friends. Bobby always lived life to the fullest and always had a kind word and a smile.i hadn't seen him for menu years! But his posts on Facebook each day were either off-the-wall funny or truly inspiring. He always showed his spirit and his memory will live on in the hearts of so many.
Respectfully, Darrell Beam
I am so sorry for your loss. I know that words can not remove the pain you feel. When I experienced the loss of a loved one I found great comfort in what God's word the Bible has to say. The Bible says that Jehovah God is the "God of comfort." (2 Corinthians. 1:3) He wants to remove your pain, because "he cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7) The Bible speaks of a resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in death. "From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them. Where are your stings, O Death? Where is your destructiveness, O Grave?" (Hosea 13:14) Jehovah promises to bring those we have lost back to life, and remove the sting of death forever. What a comfort it can be to know that. Please accept my condolences for your loss.


Dear Jane and Steve, we send our deepest sympathy to you in the loss of your dear brother. We hope your special memories of him will help carry you through this very difficult time. Sending our love and prayers.

Alan and Ellen Shank
To all the Ewing family our prayers go out to you. Bobby was one of the nicest most friendly person we have ever met. We so looked forward to seeing him every July 4th. Even though we weren't in one of his condos it didn't matter he was our friend and made The Pinnacle feel like home. You will be greatly missed. Our trip will not be the same without you there. Our family will miss you.

Ronnie and Paula Kime

Sorry for your loss he will be missed by many.

 I am so sorry to hear of Bob's unexpected passing. Please accept my sincere condolence. May you find comfort among family, friends and God's word the bible. Isaiah 66: 12, 13 says, "This is what Jehovah says: . . . As a mother comforts her son, so I will keep comforting you.
I will pray for you during this difficult time.


Dear Joan, Steve, Jane & Belinda
