Robert “Bob” Twigg


On Sunday, May 2, 2021, Robert “Bob” Twigg, loving husband, Father, and proud Pap, passed away at the age of 80.

Bob was born on October 9, 1940 in Morgan County, W.Va., to Frank and Lillian Batt Twigg.

He attended school in Paw Paw, W.Va. and later received his GED.

During his lifetime, he worked many jobs, including construction, WV Department of Highways, Berkeley Club Bottling Company, Morgan County Courthouse, CNB Bank and after retiring, he worked part-time at PS Storage.

Bob liked “old cars” and enjoyed his 1953 Ford, he planted a vegetable garden each year and loved sharing the bounty, and especially eating what he raised after Chris cooked it! Bob enjoyed playing cards with his kids, loved baseball and watched the Washington Nationals and going fishing. He collected clocks, and was always on the look-out for any unique ones. Bob liked to tease, had a great sense of humor and a quick wit.

He was a member of Calvary United Methodist Church in Great Cacapon, where he served as a Trustee for many years.

Bob belonged to Deford Lodge #88 A.F. & A.M. in Berkeley Springs, W.Va., where he just had received his 50 year pin in April. He served in the United States Army and was in the Reserves.
