Bishop Francis J. Green

Council 11855

In Memory of our Beloved Brother Sir Knight Robert D. Cawley

Born - September 23, 1960

 Called Home - March 3, 2011

    Sir Knight Bob Cawley was not a member of our Council for very long, but he is greatly missed. We are proud to call him Brother Knight of the Bishop Francis J Council 11855 and Sir Knight of the Fr. Henry Miller Assembly 2308. He was an active member who was always there to help when help was needed and always had a smile on his face. He was a devout Catholic who exemplified the Principles of the Knights of Columbus (Charity, Unity, Fraternity, & Patriotism) in the way that he lived his life. We are honored to have had the privilege of providing SK Bob with an Honor Guard and Chalice Ceremony.


    While we are saddened by our loss, we take solace in the knowledge that SK Bob is now with our Lord. As was said in the Chalice Ceremony,


    Robert David Cawley 50, was born September 23, 1960 in Springfield, Illinois and passed away on March 3, 2011, at the young age of 50. Robert touched the hearts of many people and will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 11 years, Carol; his children, Jennifer (Springfield, IL.) Tara

and Taylor (Tucson); his parents, Robert And Lillian Cawley (Springfield, IL); his two brothers, David Cawley (Springfield, IL) and Mark Cawley (Athens, TN) and several nieces, nephews and cousins. Robert enjoyed bowling, softball and most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family. He was also the #1 fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Blues. Robert loved his Country and served with honor, he served in the US Navy for four years and later served in the 162nd Air National Guard of Tucson, AZ and 183rd Air National Guard in Springfield, IL, retiring after 29 years of service. Robert was also a member of the Knights of Columbus and belonged to the Sangamo Surf Club of Springfield, IL, Robert was a member of Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church and Saint Joseph Catholic Church in Springfield, IL.

May his souls, and the souls of all the faithfully departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace.
