Robert Edward Lockwood

Robert Edward Lockwood, age 89, of Fowlerville, MI, went to be with his LORD and Savior on Sunday, April 26, 2020.  He was born August 28, 1930, to Leslie and Olga (Lott) Lockwood. Bob grew up in Lansing, MI, and graduated with honors from Lansing Tech. in 1948.  He was quite an athlete earning nine letters on his high school sports team, including 1st all-city basketball team, and pitching a no-hitter in baseball.  Bob was a skilled tradesman in plumbing, electrical, and building.   He worked for     X-Cell-O Corporation, later for Livingston County as a building inspector and then as Building and Grounds Facilities Supervisor. Bob served his country in the Michigan National Guard, retiring after 20 some years of service.  Bob married Frances J. "Janey" Kelley on Oct. 7, 1950, in Angola, Indiana.   They resided in Cohoctah Township for 66 years.  Janey was the love of his life, exemplified in the loving way he cared for her until her passing in 2007. They were married 56 years. Bob was a long-time active member of Calvary Bible Church of Cohoctah.  He loved his LORD and his church family.  He found it very difficult to not attend services these past weeks due to Michigan's "Stay Home-Stay Safe" order.  Bob deeply loved his family and was so proud of each of his grandchildren.  He is survived by 2 sons, Tom (Vicky) Lockwood of Byron, Mike (Ruthann) Lockwood of Fowlerville, and daughter Terry (Mark) Hatt of Fowlerville, 16 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. Preceding him also in death was his sister, Barbara "Bonnie" (Lockwood) Cross. Burial will be at the Sanford Cemetery in Cohoctah township with immediate family attending.  A memorial service will be held at a later date for friends and family.  In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to The Guest House of Fowlerville, 135 Free Street, Fowlerville, MI, 48836.  Online condolences can be expressed at
