Robert Hatfield Obituary

Robert Allen “Bob” Hatfield passed away Monday, September 18, 2023, at his home in New Church, VA. Born April 28, 1953, in Annapolis, MD, he was the son of Anna Mae Hatfield of Pasadena, MD and the late Ray Arthur Hatfield.

Following high school, Bob honorably served his country in the United States Army. After a lifetime of hard work as an HVAC technician, Bob and his wife, Barbara, retired and moved to the Eastern Shore of Virginia to enjoy a little peace in the countryside. Bob loved the outdoors and any kind of fishing or hunting. His love of the outdoors may have something to do with him being a sixth-generation member of the legendary Hatfield’s (as in the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s).

Bob is survived by his wife of 39 years, Barbara Meldrom Hatfield; son, Eric Christopher Hatfield (Gina) of Greensboro, MD; brother, Ronnie Hatfield (Kelly) of Severn, MD; sisters, Robin Harp (Jerry) of Swanee, GA and Rose Skiratko (George) of Pasadena; grandsons, Woodrow “Woody” Locklear III (Magin) of Pocomoke, MD, who Bob thought of and raised as a son, and Tyler Hatfield of Greensboro; great-grandchildren, Mackenzie Abbott, Dakotah Locklear, and Crew Locklear; and niece and nephews, Vanessa Hatfield, Ronnie Hatfield, Jr., Keith Wolf, and Niel Skiratko.

The family will gather privately to celebrate and honor Bob’s life. Should friends desire, contributions in lieu of flowers, may be made to the New Church Volunteer Fire and Rescue, P.O. Box 218, New Church, VA 23415.
