Deacon Robert S. Goldsborough, affectionately known as "Bobby," departed this life on Sunday, September 15, 2019 at home surrounded by loved ones. He was 75.
Bobby was born in Easton, Maryland on July 5, 1944 to Elizabeth Boulden Holland and the late Ernest Chester. He attended Robert Russa Moton School in Talbot County. He was employed by Mulholland Harper & Company for 37 years. He was also employed with Caroline County Public Schools for ten years until his retirement in 2015.
Bobby was a member of Abrams Memorial Holiness Church in Denton, MD where he was elevated to the office of Deacon by his pastor, Elder Thomas H. Fisher, Sr. He served faithfully as a member of the usher board and president of the Men's Ministry until his health would no longer allow.
Bobby's favorite hobbies were fishing, cooking, and playing pool. He liked to watch cooking shows, cowboy shows, and any sport especially football. He was an AVID Cowboys fan. He also was very passionate about seeing the youth succeed in education and athletics. He had a soft, kind, and gentle spirit - meek but not weak.
Bobby loved his family. He had a heart for his grandchildren and great grands. He will be sadly missed by his wife of 53 years, Elder H. Victoria Goldsborough, children, family and friends. Bobby was preceded in death by his grandfather, Isaac Harris; grandmother, Bertha Lee Harris; father, Ernest Chester; stepmother, Eunice Chester, Mother-in-law, Evang Louisa S.

Moore; great grandchildren, Alyiaha Christenson, Anthony Christenson, and A'Zia Moore; a special niece (like a daughter), Rasheme Chester; siblings, Ernestine Turner; Joyce Camper (Richard); Regina Holland; Charlene Holland (James); Kevan Chester (Angela); Jeffrey Chester; Stephanie Chester; stepsister, Josephine Seth; brothers-in-law, Allen Boston (Melanie), Milton Brooks (Michelle); Dwight Brooks (Fiesta); Mickey Hynson; sister-in-law, Darlene Boston and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
