Robert Bruce "Bob" Crates, 56, died on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018, at Fort Worth, Tex., after a lingering illness.

A native of Chattanooga, Bob was a 30-year resident of Fort Worth and employed in the financial and capital management field.

A lifelong Episcopalian and active member of All Saints' Episcopal Church, he considered himself fortunate to be involved in All Saints' outreach mission, Amazing Grace Orphanage in Kenya, which played a major and loving role in his life.
