Obituary for Robert Earl Bilbrey

Robert Earl  Bilbrey
Robert Earl Bilbrey, age 80 died on Friday, November 30, 2018. He was born on Tuesday, August 23, 1938 in Dallas, Texas to Aubrey Lawerence Sr. and Ruby Anna (Shaver) Bilbrey. Robert called Irving his home for over 6 decades. He felt and made his children and all who knew him very aware that one of his greatest achievements in life was his beloved wife of 59 years Sonya. After her death in 2016 he became involved in the grief share classes hosted at Oak View Baptist Church. He also began his own personal ministry of reaching out to others that had also experienced the loss of a loved one. Robert was eloquent in his words and compassionate of their loss.
Robert had a lifelong love of the outdoors, was a good hunter, fisherman, gardener and loved spending time at the lake with his family. He was an avid bowler and enjoyed traveling frequently. Robert served our country in the Army Reserves as a young man and was so proud to be an American.
His easy going, laid back, sweet nature made him a favorite wherever he went. Robert was adored as a son, brother, loyal husband, an exceptional father, grandfather a very special great grand grandfather and amazing friend. He will lovingly be remembered for easy genuine smile, quick wit and generous heart who loved a funny joke, a home cooked meal and the company of his family.
His children and family are heartbroken by their own loss but rest easy knowing their father has been reunited with the love of his life and their mother Sonya, to spend eternity walking the streets of Heaven with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Robert has joined his wife Sonya Bilbrey in eternity and together they are in the company of Robert’s parents as well as brother Wayne Bilbrey. Left to cherish his memory are children Terry Bilbrey and wife Charlotte, Annette Burkhalter and husband Brad; grandchildren Lindsey Pompizzi and husband Chris, Travis Bilbrey, Brett Burkhalter and wife Tierney, Beau Burkhalter and wife Julia; great grandchildren Lily Moore, Delaney Burkhalter, Vivian Pompizzi; brothers Aubrey Bilbrey Jr., Glen Bilbrey; as well as numerous other extended family and loving friends. The family will receive friends and family between 9:00am and 11:00 am on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at Brown’s Memorial Funeral Home, 707 N. MacArthur Blvd in Irving with a memorial service to celebrate the wonderful life Robert lived and the joy he brought to us all beginning at 11:00am.
