Bob Driscoll (March 12, 1941 – April 23, 2012)

Bob Driscoll was many things to those who knew him.

To Kim Driscoll, he was her husband Bobby.

To Sunset Beach residents who participated in the Christmas Stroll,
he was Santa.

To the Sunset Beach Civic Association, he was a former board member who could be found monthly cleaning the beach he loved.  He was often called upon to be a bartender at events, or meet and greet the public.  He represented beach residents at City Hall, and succeeded in getting beach access and walkway signs placed on the beach.  He helped solve parking and traffic problems.  He was our Santa in the Christmas Stroll for the past six years.

Kim Driscoll says it best:  Everyone that passed through Bob’s life loved him.  There was never a day he didn’t make us smile or laugh with his great sense of humor.  He was the love and life of any party. 

Bob worked for GTE / Verizon Telephone Service for 30 years as a District Manager over Central Office Power Systems.  There, Bob’s easy going nature earned him the nickname POPE Cope.  But he was happiest when he retired and moved to Sunset Beach to finally become the beach bum he always wanted to be.

The Sunset Beach Civic Association will be creating a special bench in Bob’s memory to place on Sunset Beach as a reminder of all that Bob gave to his community.  It will be a special place to go to remember our Santa.
