Robert “Bob” Rhoades Aduddell

April 4, 1959 – January 25, 2020

Robert “Bob” Rhoades Aduddell was born on April 4, 1959 in Syracuse, New York to Sharon and Richard Aduddell.  He was a Texas A&M alumnus, earning a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 1981. His love of travel was established early with his first job, which allowed him to see the world.  This opportunity broadened his worldview and inspired his thirst for adventure. When he wasn’t traveling, Bob enjoyed talking to people all over the world as an active ham radio operator, riding his Harley, playing fantasy football, reading, and spending time with his family.

He found the love of his life later in life and quickly set about making all of her dreams come true. He married Lisa Allard on April 16, 2005 in the church where they met.  Without prior experience he jumped into being a family man and thoroughly enjoyed being a wonderful father to Lisa’s three teenage children. Bob and Lisa were best friends and spent their time traveling the world.  His true purpose in life was to make his family happy and the devastation his wife and children feel at his passing is evidence of his great success in cultivating strong family bonds. His family cherishes that he selflessly offered his time, insight, and wisdom to enrich their lives.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Sharon and Richard Aduddell. Bob’s influence can be clearly seen in the family that he leaves behind. He is survived by his loving wife, Lisa Aduddell, their three children, Jared Hislop, Lauren (Matt) Cooper, Eric (Heather) Hislop, and one beloved grandchild, Emma Hislop.  He is also survived by his sister Denise (Doug) Regnier, two nieces, Taylor and Brooke Regnier, and an aunt, Roberta Wise.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network or to Hospice Brazos Valley.

The Funeral Service will be held at 12 p.m. Wednesday, January 29th in the Bluebonnet Chapel of Callaway-Jones Funeral Center, 3001 S. College Ave., Bryan, TX 77801 with Certified Celebrant Dawn Lee Wakefield officiating. The Graveside Service will follow at 2 p.m. Wednesday in College Station Memorial Cemetery, 3800 Raymond Stotzer Pkwy, College Station, TX 77845.

  3. To Bob’s family,

    Bob and I were in the Lake Highlands High School Class of 1977, and we had several classes together over the years. He had a great sense of humor and a kind heart.

    My thoughts are with his family during this sad time.

    Sincerely,

    Patrick Regan

  4. Bob was my neighbor during high school. Always considered him a friend through the years. Sending prayers to his family and our condolences.

  5. I met Bob on my second day of moving to Texas from New York. He was my neighbor next door, schoolmate, a great friend. We enjoyed many good times and I was honored to share many of my favorite areas of travel with him, Aspen Colorado and Lake Ouachita – Arkansas, where he learned to water ski…..oh at least he did get up a few times, but always we had many great shared friends over the years. I know his life was full of travel as he wrote me for many years while he worked the drill ship off of the coast of India. I was always so jealous of his many adventures throughout the world and I am so glad that he always continued to explore like no other person that I know….. Till we meet again one day Bob on the greatest journey ahead….. Many blessings to all your family Bob, you were fiercely dedicated to them. May GOD Bless ya’ll……Love you.

  6. To Bob’s family,

    I am very sorry to hear this news. I met Bob on my First day at work at Texas Instruments in 1984. I had just moved to Dallas. He and I were good friends. We worked, played on a softball team (that he started), went to NCAA basketball games together, …… I could go on forever.

    I’m very sorry for your loss. I know how Bob was able to light up other people’s lives. I will miss him greatly. You are all in my prayers.
