Dr. M. Robert Mulholland, Jr. 1936- 2015, honoring a beloved friend and teacher
Late last evening our beloved teacher and friend, Bob Mulholland, went to be with the Lord. We write this news with sadness — for his passing is a great loss to us — but also with gratitude for the significant friendship we shared with him in Christ.
We have been privileged to walk with Bob and Lynn during these past few years, staying in close contact with them each step of the way. Recently the chemo stopped being helpful and things began to look grim. By God’s grace, I was able to talk with both Bob and Lynn on Saturday and at that time, Bob sounded strong and present so it was a surprise that the end came so suddenly.
This morning Lynn wrote:

My precious husband and servant of our Lord went to be with Him last night about 11:00pm, December 20, appropriately on a Sunday. I had to take him to the ER last Thursday with a high fever where he was diagnosed with pneumonia. When the serious pneumonia in addition to the serious cancer and his lowered immune condition weakened him, the Lord intervened and took him home.
Again I thank you for your support and prayers.
We love you.
We want to assure you that we are walking with Lynn during this time and I was able to talk with her immediately following Bob’s passing last night. As we know about the memorial services, we will pass that along to you.
May Jesus himself draw near to us as we mourn this loss and celebrate Bob’s life,
Ruth, for the Transforming Center team
