On July 18, 2020, Robert Kingsley Tomlin (Bob) Agnew, of Ellicott City, beloved husband of the late Anne (Scott) Agnew, cherished father of William Arthur Agnew, Laurie Agnew Thompson and her husband Matt, and Daniel Scott Agnew and his wife Lisa, loving grandfather of Matthew Robert Thompson, Katherine Thompson McKenna, William Arthur Agnew, Jr., Barbara Agnew Bender, Amy Larner and Julia Squyres, dear great grandfather of Abby, Kacey, Eliza, Avery, Zoe, Kaitlyn, Carson, Anna, Caroline and Serena. Bob was predeceased by his parents Arthur and Marian Agnew and his brother William Harold Agnew.

Bob was born March 18th, 1922 in Passaic, New Jersey. He was a proud 1944 graduate of Amherst College where he excelled at sports, football in particular. He joined the United States Marines to serve his country later that year to serve in the Pacific theater, and was awarded a Purple Heart. After returning from the war he began a long and successful career in the insurance business, retiring from American National Insurance in Galveston, Texas, in 1988. Upon retirement Bob and Anne returned to the Northeast residing in Cape Cod, Massachusetts and later Baltimore, Maryland to be near their beloved daughter and son in law Matt and Laurie Thompson. He was a faithful member of St. Paul Catholic Church in Ellicott City, Maryland.

Bob was an avid and accomplished golfer, and he and Anne spent countless hours together on golf courses in Texas, Massachusetts and Maryland. They enjoyed traveling after retirement and took many memorable trips together.

Bob was truly a member of “The Greatest Generation” and was a man of honor, devotion and generosity throughout his life. He will be greatly missed by family and friends.

A special thanks goes out to the staff at Heartlands Senior Living Village in Ellicott City, Maryland, and to his special caretakers Joyce Souder and Lillie Glenn who took such wonderful care of him in his later years.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic a private memorial mass will be held. In lieu of flowers donations may be directed to St. Paul Catholic Church, 3755 St. Paul Street, Ellicott City, MD 21043.
