Obituary for Robert Bostick Childers
Robert Bostick Childers passed away on July 29, 2017, at St. Dominic’s Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi, after a courageous battle with Parkinson’s disease. Robert was born on October 4, 1951. While in high school, Robert served as a Page in the United States House of Representatives, sponsored by Representative Jamie Whitten. He was a 1969 graduate of New Albany High School and thereafter he attended the University of Mississippi, where he was a member of Sigma Nu Fraternity. He later attended the University of Mississippi School of Law, where he obtained a Juris Doctor Degree in 1978.
Robert thereafter began a thirty-seven year career in the general practice of law in Jackson, Mississippi, where he became a valued member of the Mississippi Bar and the Capital Area Bar Association. He was an avid reader and a supporter of the arts. Robert felt passionately about the quest for finding a medical cure for Alzheimers and became a volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Association for many years. He was a kind, gentle and considerate man with impeccable integrity.
During his last illness, which became increasingly progressive, he displayed remarkable courage. His strong Christian faith was on full display during his difficult last days and will serve as an inspiration to those who had the privilege of knowing him.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Bostick Childers of Iuka, Mississippi, his grandparents, Orville and Lois Bostick of Golden, Mississippi and his longtime partner, Dr. Sharon Wyatt. He is survived by his Uncle Jerry Bostick of Marble Falls, Texas, and his second cousin Dianne Biddle of Iuka.
Memorials can be made to the Mississippi Chapter of the Alzheimer’ s Association at 232 Market Street, 2nd Floor, Flowood, Mississippi, 39232.
A memorial service will be held on August 10, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at St. James Episcopal Church in celebration of his life.
