Rev. Robert's Story
Rev. Robert Andrew Compton, Jr, age 75, of Corsicana passed away on Friday, Dec. 9, 2016 in Corsicana. He was born on June 22, 1941 in Lorraine to parents Robert "Andy" Compton and Vinnie Compton.
While all who knew him mourn the passing of a beloved pastor, confidant, father, grandfather, brother and brother-in-law, we also know that a great celebration began at 3:30 Friday afternoon. Rev. Compton was reunited with his wife Ruby and received his just rewards from our heavenly Father for living a life of extreme devotion and dedication to his Christian faith. A mighty Christian General has now fought his last battle and, like all the battles before this, has emerged victorious. He has shed the bonds of this world and the frailty of the human body to be reborn and live forever in paradise.
Rev. Compton has pastored numerous churches over the course of his 43 year calling beginning with his first pastoral position at First Assembly of God church in Forreston. Through his final with First Assembly of God in Maydelle. Rev. Compton worked tirelessly throughout his life to not only provide for his family but to also tend to his constantly expanding flock of parishioners. He has touched more lives and souls than anyone can imagine and will be missed in some way by everyone who had the opportunity to meet him. He is truly loved and revered.
He was preceded in death by Ruby, his wife of 54 years and is survived by his son Ronnie; granddaughter Lynsi; three great-grandchildren; four siblings and numerous close family members.
