August 28, 1954 ~ August 27, 2020

Born in: Jeffersonville, IN
Resided in: Glasgow, KY

Robert William Haralson, age 65, of Glasgow, died Thursday, August 27, 2020 at Norton’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital, with his family by his side. He fought a brief, but courageous fight against Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. He was born in Jeffersonville, Indiana on August 28, 1954 to the late James William Haralson and the late Florence Haralson. He was a retired hospital CFO and of the catholic faith. He graduated with his Bachelors from Eastern Kentucky University and his Masters from Bellarmine before moving to Newnan, GA where he then met the love of his life. When he married his bride, he promised her that she might want for things, but she would never need anything. He kept that promise for 32 years.

If you knew Bob, you knew how much he loved his wife. When he retired, they spent every single day together. Whether they were going on day trips or planting flowers, they were together. They had a routine that they often followed, which normally started with coffee and then sitting down on the couch to watch Packer and Durham, Bob’s favorite sports talk show. Once this was over, Bob would spend most of his day watching Perry Mason and answering a few phone calls from his children.

Bob’s strength was second to none. His daughter was to be married on September 26th, but after his diagnosis, it was decided to move up the wedding, despite Bob’s desire for nothing to change just for him. On August 15th, Bob walked his daughter down the aisle and had beautiful family photos done. 2 days later, Bob was admitted to the hospital. His wife says that making it to the wedding was his purpose, and he fulfilled that.

Bob loved to golf, complete home improvement projects and do yard work. Any time he needed to get his mind off anything, you could find him mowing the yard. Bob was an avid Louisville Cardinals fan, and he watched every sport imaginable with his son. Bob loved animals, specifically dogs, and loved to share funny dog videos with his daughter. Bob spent a lot of time cuddled up on the couch with Harley, Cade and Millie, and babysitting his grand-dogs, Oliver, Lucy and Daisy.

He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Yvette Haralson; one daughter, Allison Haralson Pile (Cody) of Bowling Green; one son, Kevin Haralson, of Bowling Green; one sister, Cindy Burcham (Gene) of St. Louis, MO. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one sister, Cheri McCormick and many furry friends.

  9. Haralson family
    I just want to thank you for sharing your husband and father with our Williamson Memorial hospital family. He was there for a short time but left a lasting impression. He was the most kind hearted humbling soul I have ever met. My daughter worked at a local pharmacy, while Bob stayed in our little town the two became great friends. And sometimes he would share of a kind hearted girl at the pharmacy that would go out of her way to always help him and when he found out she was my daughter he always said he could see where she got her caring heart from. Bob was so special to each of us. Prayers for each of you the our God will bring comfort as only he can. God’s blessings upon y’all 🙏🙏🙏🙏✨✨✨

  15. Yvette and family,
    I worked with Bob at Clinch Valley Medical Center. I was not always a part of the actual “Hospital”, I was with home health most of the time but Bob never made a difference. He was kind and supportive. We also got to attend church together for a while and it was there that I actually got to know Yvette and Allison. Allison was in Awana with Libby, my daughter, and I will never forget the beautiful song Allison, Hannah Hearl and the young Davis boy (his name escapes me now) performed for the AWANA competition. Bob was so proud. He beamed when I told him how much I enjoyed it and I even saved it on my phone. I say all of this to tell you your dad was loved and he loved his family more than anything. Prayers for all of you in the days to come.

  16. I worked with Bob when he was CFO of Williamson Memorial Hospital. Bob was very kind and understanding. He always talked about his family with so much love and emotion. May God comfort the family during this difficult time.

  17. I am so sad to hear of Bob sudden passing —/ he was the kindest man

    Really enjoyed taking to him at our last reunion — we shared the table with him and thoroughly enjoyed our conversations about st Martha days.

    Rest In Peace and May his family find peace and solace with each other and the knowledge he meant a lot to our class

  18. I worked closely with Bob while he was interim CFO at Caldwell Medical Center in Princeton, KY. In the short time I knew Bob, I felt him to be genuine, kind and considerate. He spoke of family often and I could tell family was very important to him. He had a great sense of humor and an infectious smile. I enjoyed working with him and considered him a friend. My condolences to you in this time of sorrow.

  19. Yvette, Allison & Kevin,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. Bob was so proud of his family and spoke about y’all with so much pride and love. He was one of the kindest person I have ever know and I am so blessed that I could call him my friend. Please hang on to the wonderful memories!

  20. Yvette, Allison and Kevin,
    I am so thankful that I was able to work with such a wonderful person as Bob. I will cherish all the good times we had about him being a cardinal fan and me a wildcat fan. Bob was a friend that I will never forget. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  21. The sadness for all who had the fortune to know this wonderful and loving family man is beyond words to describe. Gone too soon but never forgotten.
