Robert Ault, 82, of Pendleton, passed from his earthly life into eternal life on June 5 after an extended battle with cancer.
Born Oct. 19, 1929, he was the son of Luther and Dorothy Ault of Lyons.
He was retired from Peabody Coal Company and recently employed as a crossing guard by the South Madison School Corp. He was also a U.S. Army veteran and a member of the United Methodist Church in Lyons.
He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Shirley (Davidson) Ault; three daughters, Tambi Smith of Texas, Bunni Steel of Idaho and Bobbi (Jim) Cook of Anderson; four grandchildren, Brian Vance of Tennessee, Danielle and Casey Smith of Texas, Hunter Cook of Anderson; and one great grandson, Brysyn Vance.
He is preceded in death by his parents; sister Mary Jo White; and a son Brack Robert.
Graveside service will be Friday June 8 at 2 p.m. at the Prairie Chapel Cemetery in Lyons with Don Reed officiating.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society.
We little knew that evening God was going to call your name, in life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
