Yadkinville Mr. Robert “Pawpaw” Lee Cline, 77, went to be with his eternal Father and was reunited with his loving wife on Wednesday, January 11, 2023. Robert was born June 25, 1945 to Coolie and Laura York Cline. He was a veteran of the US Army and a member of Believer’s Baptist Church. Robert retired from RJ Reynolds after more than 40 years of service. He was an amazing checkers player, placing 3rd in State and went to Nationals in the ACF. He enjoyed going to tractor pulls, anything John Deere, telling jokes and riddles, and woodworking. Robert placed 1st in State in Competition Archery and was an avid deer hunter. He was a creative engineer that could make anything from nothing. After losing his son, he would tell everyone that his girls were his world. They both cherish the memories of Saturday mornings, playing the guitar and singing with their dad. In recent years, his clothes never matched and he always wore his crocs, but he always kept his sense of humor and his great love for his children and grandchildren. In addition to his parents, Robert was preceded in death by his loving wife, Gail “MawMaw” Fulp Cline; his son, Robert Dwayne Cline; and a sister, Betty Colleen.
