July 5, 1961 - July 14, 2021
Robert “Bobby” Pleasants passed away on Wednesday, July 14, 2021, at the age of 60 after a long battle with numerous health problems. A graveside service will be held at New Garden Friends cemetery at 1:00 pm Sunday, July 18. The family will receive friends following the service at Forbis and Dick Guilford Chapel. Bobby touched many lives with his generosity and kindness. He was a loving brother, friend, granddaddy, stepfather, and uncle. Bobby cherished his friends but loved to make new ones from strangers. Those around him knew to be prepared for his quick wit and hilarious antidotes; he gained such joy from making people laugh. Bobby was a multifaceted person with a love of live music, antiques, and motorcycles. In his younger years, Bobby spent time hunting, fishing, and exploring which nurtured an interest in nature and our National Parks. As an art framer, Bobby was able to showcase his creative abilities through each new piece he completed. He cheered on his beloved Appalachian Mountaineers each football season and treasured time spent in the Blue Ridge Mountains. In health he enjoyed riding his Harley and music; the band Blackberry Smoke was a favorite. He loved his family, especially his mother and grandchildren, and will be missed by many friends. Bobby is preceded by his parents, Dick and Rachel Pleasants of Greensboro. His is survived by his brother, Jimmy Pleasants of Greensboro; sister, Patti Pleasants of Fleetwood; niece, Carrie Boone of Boone; step-son, Kyle Harris and wife, Ayla Harris of Stokesdale; and grandsons, Grayson and Grant Middleton. In lieu of flowers, the family asks memorial contributions be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation or to the Congregational United Church of Christ at 400 W. Radiance Dr. in Greensboro. Forbis and Dick Guilford is serving the family and online condolences may be offered at www.forbisanddick.com.
