Obituary

Robert A. “Bob” Land, 54, of North Vernon went home to be with Jesus on September 20, 2022, after a short but hard-fought battle with liver cancer. 

Bob was born on May 27, 1968, in Columbus, Indiana. Bob brought smiles wherever he went, he loved to have fun and never missed an opportunity to laugh. He loved Jesus and wanted everyone else to do so as well, sharing the gospel with everyone he could. He was a devoted husband, father, Pappy, Youth Group leader, worship leader and best friend to his wife, Christy. He was also an avid sports fan, and had faith that the Pacers, Colts, and Cubbies were going to win another championship soon!

Bob was a 1986 graduate of Columbus East High School and drove a school bus for Jennings County Schools for 12 years. He had previously worked as a logistic manager for Toyota in Columbus for 15 years. Bob was a member of Grayford Road Community Church and Columbus Bowling Leagues, Monday night church league. He enjoyed bowling, watching any sport, and spending time with his family.
