Bob was born on September 23, 1950 to Herman & Mildred Sprock.

He worked for top engineering companies such as Boeing, Marconi, Rockwell, and L-3 Communications for over 30 years.

He was a proud Corvette owner and active member of several Atlanta area Corvette clubs. He loved car shows and traveling with the club. He was also a passionate vintage pinball machine owner. He enjoyed spending time with his family, traveling, Georgia Tech football, tennis, jazz music, and home improvement projects. His travels with his beloved wife of 17 years, Lanie Bevan, included many cruises to destinations all around the world.

  1. CandleImageWords cannot express how I feel about this loss. Bob was a kind and gentle giant, always willing to share of himself and his time for others. A friendly face in the crowd, a big and firm handshake when greeting. I will miss him dearly. As Bob was fond of saying, “It’s a pleasure for you to meet me!” Yes sir, it was indeed good to have met and known you Bob. Safe travels on this next leg of your journey my friend.

  2. CandleImageJohn and I are so saddened for all of you. We know how heartbroken you are and we know that Bob will be greatly missed. Please accept our deepest condolences and know that all of you are in our every prayer. We wish you peace, comfort and love during this difficult and sad time.

  3. Lanie, we are so very sorry to hear of the passing of your husband, Bob. What a wonderful man he was. We are thankful we had the opportunity to get to know him these past few years and call him a friend. May he Rest In Peace

  4. CandleImageI first met Bob in 1979 when we both worked at Marconi Avionics in Atlanta for about 3 years. Later, we both moved to Rockwell International in Duluth Ga (which became Boeing in ~ 1998) and we worked there for many years. We became friends, went fishing together on Lake Lanier and along the banks of the Chattahoochee river, and enjoyed family events together as our children came along and grew up over those years. Bob was a great engineer. I remember one project early in our careers where we worked together daily at Eglin AFB (Ft. Walton Beach) for 3 months at that site. We had some great times. Our jobs took us in different directions the last 15 – 20 years and I wish that I had stayed in closer contact. Our sympathy (Bill, Mary Ann, Michael and Julie) goes out to all the extended family. Bob was a great guy.

  5. CandleImageI can not even come close to explaining the impact Bob’s loss has had on me. Over the years he had become a highly valued friend . I always looked forward to seeing his smiling face and experiencing his handshake which was as large as his heartfelt welcome to a friend. Bob was a great member in the Amazing Corvettes Club and always sought to make new people feel welcome. Bob was a friendly man who always made time for others. The warmth that he projected to others was honest and sincere. There was only one Bob Sprock and I am sure I will never find anyone like him again. My heart goes out to Lanie and family.
