Rob Bates Memorial Fund

Robert Everett Bates, age 51 of Hendersonville, passed away unexpectedly on December 22, 2019. Rob was a devoted husband, father, brother, friend, and Titans Fan. Rob approached each day with enthusiasm, positivity, and great love. To those who knew him, his deep devotion to his family has and always will be apparent. He is survived by his wife Tracy of 17 years, and three daughters he adored Grace 16, Addison 14, and Ellen 13.

As we plan the services to follow, we ask anyone interested in supporting his family through financial worry during this Holiday Season in lieu of flowers, to donate to this GoFundMe page. While nothing can replace Rob and his spirit, any financial burden is not something we wish his family to deal with during this period. 

The Bates’ family is extremely appreciative of all the support given in this time of need.
