Robert “Bob” Eugene Temple, age 84 of Wirtz passed away Sunday, June 23, 2024. He was preceded in death by his parents, Bernard and Pauline Steiner Temple.

Bob served in the United States Army as a Combat Engineer. He owned Bob’s Home Repair for 25 years serving the Smith Mountain Lake area, but as Bob like to put it, he was “all over the map.” Bob was a great husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather who will be dearly missed. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Cancer Society. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
