Memorial service for Bob Battenfield
November 24 @ 12:00 am
Dear sisters and brothers in the Presbytery of San Diego,
I am writing to tell you some sad news. On September 30, 2018, at 6:30 a.m., Bob Battenfield died peacefully at home. His wife, Patsy, was by his side as was his daughter and her family. Patsy shared how she felt God’s presence and comfort in their home during this period of grief and loss.
You may recall Bob was such a bright light in the community and ever faithful to God’s call on his life to share the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He was a long-time devoted member of Fletcher Hills Pres, the president of Baja Presbyterian Missions, and the editor of the PresbyNews. We will miss him.
A memorial service will be held at Fletcher Hills Pres on Saturday, November 24, 2018, at a time to be determined. I will send out a future confirming email that will include the time of service.
For the time being, Patsy has asked for no visitors as the family cherishes their private time together to share not only their grief and sorrow but also their joy of knowing Bob’s travails of the last few months are now eclipsed by his wholeness and eternal life in Christ.
Please continue to pray for Patsy and the entire Battenfield family. You can send condolence cards to Patsy at 9189 Grossmont Boulevard, La Mesa, 91941.
Especially at times like this, the family of Jesus Christ is so important.
Presbytery of San Diego
