Robert Jackson “Cab” Hargrave, 71, passed away on Saturday, September 3, 2022.

Cab was born on June 13, 1951. He was originally from Bainbridge, Georgia, and was a Florida resident for many years before moving to Haywood County in 2007. He was preceded in death by his parents, Burch and Jane Hargrave, as well as his brothers, Burch Hargrave, Jr. and Andrew R. Hargrave, and sister, Sally Hargrave Berry. He had a Master’s Degree from Nova Southeastern University and worked at AT&T for many years before retiring. He was a beloved member of the Hargrave family and was also a treasured fixture of the Burt family, the Sutton family, and the Lalor-Aassar family.

There’s a rumor going around that he liked golf (ha ha!). The rumor is true as his passion for the game was apparent to anyone he met. Cab lived his life with similar passion; always greeting others with a friendly smile and a helping hand. He had a goofy sense of humor, a hearty laugh, and an obvious love for his family. He was a man with many aliases; growing up, his family called him “Bob”; he earned the nickname “Cab” in college, and then when grandkids came along, he became a wonderful and devoted “Buga” to them.   Among his giant family and circle of friends, he was adored and loved by so many people. Cab was a genuinely kind, honest, and all-around-great guy!
