Robert David Childs, also known as Dave or Bob, was born May 16, 1927, in Alexander City, Alabama.
Robert’s relationship with Christ began at a young age. His walk with Christ began as a faithful member of Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Chicago, Illinois under the leadership of the late Rev. Clay Evans and ended as a devoted member of Perfect Peace Missionary Baptist Church under the guidance of Rev. Dr. Emerson Ware Jr.
Robert left Alexander City and moved to Chicago, Illinois at the tender age of thirteen years old. During that time, in 1948, he met and married Augusta Graham and from that union came Patrica Howard. Also, during that time, he answered his nations call by enlisting in the United States Marine Corps (1951-1953). Still feeling obligated to serve his country, three months later he enlisted into the United States Army (1953-1955). From Robert’s second union came two estrange children: Robert Jr. and Paulette Childs. His third marriage was to Viola Morris and from that union came Kenneth and Jerome Childs.
Robert was preceded in death by his mother, Jennie Tucker; his daughter Patrica Howard; and his son Jerome Childs.
