SPRINGFIELD, MO—lt is with heavy heart, yet hope, that the USA
Veterans Hope Center Board of Directors announces the untimely death of Board member Robert (Bob) Williams who was tragically killed July 19 in the Ride-the-Duck boating accident on Table Rock Lake in Missouri.

Robert & Judith Williams

As our very first board members, Bob and Judy Williams have been a driving force behind the USA Veterans Hope Center. They have faithfully provided mentorship and ministry through media to active military and institutionalized veterans, have organized ministry events for veterans, and have led as servant leaders, mentors, friends, and life coaches to all. Bob brought to the Board his meek and gentle spirit, Godly wisdom, and steadfast faith. He has been a Board member since 2013.

“We Love Bob. Bob was more than a Board member; he was a friend, mentor, and father and grandfather to our family. He will be missed. We continue to rally around Judy and I love her very much. We are broken-hearted, but God is a heart fixer.”— Almer Jackson, Founder & CEO
