Robert Radford was born on August 8, 1932 and died at home on January 26, 2018. A memorial service will be held 2pm on February 10 at Northaven United Methodist Church. Robert was preceded in death by Nevalee Jones Radford, his wife of 42 years, and his daughter Patricia Radford. Bob is survived by his companion, Janice Murray, his son Robert G. Adams, and his daughter Louisa Payne of Stillwater, Oklahoma. Other survivors include cousins, grandchildren, and many loyal friends.
After receiving his bachelor and master's degrees at Baylor, he began his teaching career at an elementary school in Indiana. From there he taught at Caney Junior College in Kentucky. After that he continued his own education at The University of Texas at Austin and received a PhD in Philosophy. Bob spent the rest of his career as a member of the Philosophy Department at Oklahoma State University. He moved back to Dallas about ten years ago. During these ten years he particularly enjoyed solving the problems of the world with his colleagues at the Town North Y, teaching Bible classes at the Stewpot, and creating groups at his church to discuss theology and religious practices. He will be missed by many.
For those who would like to honor Bob, contributions may be made to the Stewpot (1835 Young Street, Dallas, TX 75201), Northaven United Methodist Church, or to another charity of your choice.
