Robert was born June 22, 1941 in Greenwood, SC, to the late Robert Henry Stockman, Sr., and Martha Lyons Stockman. He lived the early years of his life there before moving to Dothan in 1969, where he lived for the remainder of his life. For many, many years, Robert had been in the furniture business. Many may remember him from long years ago, when he worked at Ventress Furniture prior to closing and then went to work with Barrow, where he worked until he died. In all his years working in the business, he never missed a single day of work, and even died on his day off from work. He was a longtime member of First United Methodist Church of Dothan, as well as a member of the Progressors Sunday School class. In his spare time, he loved to run, play tennis, work in his yard, and was a big fan of Clemson University football (where he also attended). Robert had a good heart and enjoyed helping people and will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
Robert is survived by his wife of 60 years, Barbara G. Stockman of Dothan; a son, Robert Henry Stockman, III (Trey) of Nashville, TN; two daughters and a son-in-law, Robin S. and Trent W. Adkison of Dothan and, Piper Stockman of Alabaster; one granddaughter, Dalice Adkison of Dothan; and a sister, Peggy Stockman Joyce of Greenwood, SC.
