Robert Paul Julian, age 78, passed peacefully into the loving arms of Jesus Monday, February 5. He was preceded in death by his infant daughter, Janet Lynne, and his parents, Julius and Helen Julian. He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Jaxie, and three daughters, Joan Harrington and partner, John, of Lunenburg, MA; Jenni Fleming and husband, Paul, of Wilmington, NC; and Jackie McInturff and husband, Lance, of Boone, NC. He is also survived by six grandchildren; Samantha Crockett, Cameron Crockett, Rachel Fleming, Mark Fleming, Jacob McInturff and Garrett McInturff. He is also survived by his brother Joe and wife, Mary Alice, of Salem, OH; sister Karen Guthrie of Louisville, KY; sister Sharon Klus of Columbus, OH; sister-in-laws Betsy Greene and partner, Nelson of FL; Natalie Stollenwerck and husband, Tom of Dallas, TX; nephews and nieces Steve and Dianna Julian, Mike and Deb Julian, Tim and Melody Guthrie, Joey Klus, Aimee Klus, Allyson Klus, Jeff and Alyson Stollenwerck, Jaxie and Alex Alt, Kate and Kris Zarczynski, and Ana Erbeznik and John Jeras.

Bob had several careers taking him and his family all over the country from Ohio to Massachusetts to California to Georgia and many places in between. First as a History teacher then textbook publishing sales manager then a Christian bookstore owner and finally Director of Operations for several McDonalds restaurants. His loyalty, work ethic and integrity made him a force to be reckoned with. He was a proud man, wonderful protector and provider, loyal and honest even when you didn’t want to hear what he had to say. We will miss his stories about his childhood, talking around the dinner table, watching sports of any kind with him except maybe golf as it can put you to sleep and being able to just ask his advice on anything. We are proud to call him husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, friend and confidant.

A Celebration of Life will be held Tuesday, February 13, 2018, 11am at Southport Presbyterian Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the church building fund. To share memories or condolences to the family, click the “Post a Condolence” tab below.
