IN MEMORY

Bob Slosser



CBN.com - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of CBN Board Member Bob Slosser on Friday, September 13, 2002.

Since joining the CBN staff in the mid-1970s, Bob has been a key leader, both at CBN and Regent University. He served as President of Regent University from 1984 to 1990, and was also a member of the Board of Trustees. After his retirement from the presidency of Regent University, he continued to serve as President Emeritus and Writer-in-Residence. For a time he was also a member of the Board of Directors for Operation Blessing International.

Bob served in many roles at CBN over the years, most recently as a regular columnist for CBN.com. Prior to joining the Internet Department, Bob had served as Senior Editor of CBN News.

In announcing his death, Dr. Pat Robertson said of him, "Bob Slosser served on the Board of Directors of CBN since the 1960s, and was not only a Trustee of Regent University since its founding, but served very capably and for a time as President of the institution. We know that he is with the Lord and is no longer in pain, but we are all saddened at the loss of a dear friend and fellow worker for many years."

In a long and illustrious career, Bob made an impact on society as an author, journalist, respected educator, and Christian leader. His many books include, Changing the Way America Thinks, Reagan Inside Out, The Secret Kingdom with Pat Robertson, Plain Bread with Ben Kinchlow, Child of Satan/Child of God, A Man Called Mr. Pentecost with David duPlessis, and The Miracle of Jimmy Carter with Howard Norton. He also assisted Hugh Downs with a book about elder care in America.

A graduate of the University of Maine, Bob worked as a writer and editor for several New England newspapers before joining the staff of The New York Times. He was later an assistant national editor of The New York Times, a news editor of The New York World-Telegram, and The Sun, and the founding editor of the National Courier.

He was an active communicator of the Gospel, as well as a lecturer in journalism and writing. As an Episcopal layman, he taught and preached before Christian groups of all traditions.

Bob Slosser is survived by his wife, Gloria, three daughters, a son, and 11 grandchildren.
