February 22, 1941 - November 19, 2020
February 22, 1941 - November 19, 2020. Robert Randall Cauble was born to parents Samuel Randall Cauble and Cora Myrle Dose in Wenatchee, Washington, on February 22, 1941. Two weeks after he was born his father who most people called Jack, his mother Myrle and older sister Myrle Ann moved to Bakersville, California. The family lived in Baskersville for two years before moving back to San Antonio, Texas. Robert grew up in San Antonio known as Bob. He went to work when he was 12 years old at an ice house where he catered to the drive through customers. In middle school Bob played football. When he broke three ribs and his shoulder his parents would not let him play again. That’s when he took up tennis. In high school he won state three years in Tennis. Bob did good in school all the way through. He was smart and quick with numbers. After He graduated from Jefferson High school, he went on to San Antonio Junior College. While at SAC he continued playing and winning at Tennis. After two years at SAC Bob felt a need to help his mom and dad and could not continue his education. He began working in the construction industry with his uncle. While working on the ceiling of Bethel Temple in downtown San Antonio he was in an accident and lost sight in one eye. That never stopped him from doing anything. Being the strong man he was, he learned to compensate for being blind in his right eye. He soon found himself doing a lot of big jobs and running the work. Through the years Bob was a part of many great projects in San Antonio. When he would tell the story of working from swinging scaffold on the first Marriott, you wouldn’t be able to forget his bravery after hearing how the wind would blow the scaffold 30 feet away from the building only to swing back to it with a force. Bob was a force in and of himself. Anytime the Tower of American comes into sight, Bob comes to mind. He was as tall and proud as the tower he helped to build. When Bob decided to start his own Lath and Plaster company, he may have set behind a desk but he was always a friend to every worker. Like the downtown San Antonio Public Library that his business assisted with the exterior walls, Bob could tell a colorful story. Many of us will remember sitting with Bob across that desk attentive to the wisdom being shared. Respect for the people around him was a top priority. The opportunity to refurbish The Majestic Theater meant a great deal to Bob. It was a project done humbly, knowing that his grandfather had done the original plaster work. Bob lived a life of respect for others. As a construction sub-contractor Bob’s business was a part of many land marks. Bob ran RR Cauble Lath and Plaster until his health no longer permitted him to. His company did the exterior walls for buildings at Sea World, Fiesta Texas, numerous H-E-B’s, schools, government buildings and more. He was well known in the construction industry and had people often call him for information about the industry. He won many awards and also held many offices in the construction business. If you remember doing business with Bob Cauble, you will remember his hand shakes. Bob met Carole Ann Clauss at the Dairy Treat on Valentines Day. Eight months later they were married on October 30, 1964. They were married on a Friday evening at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church. The couple celebrated their marriage at Carole’s sister Dorothy’s home with family and friends. Afterwards they made their way to the coast. Carole remembers walking out on Bob Hall Pier. Bob and Carole had 3 children Carole Renay, Robert Randall Jr., and Alex Benjamin. Bob showed his love for Carole and his family in everything he did. Bob’s favorite hobby was hunting and fishing. He worked hard to provide for his family and was blessed. Bob enjoyed Carole right beside him in everything he did. They spent many Saturdays on the lake with family and friends. He and Carole enjoyed vacations where they fished together. Over the years they hunted with many friends and family on various ranches from Tilden, Fall City, Uvalde, and Harper Tx. Some years ago Bob was afforded the opportunity to purchase a family ranch. Bob was the strongest man his sons have ever known and he raised them in the tradition of working hard and enjoying hunting and fishing together. Bob spent many weekends through the year and every weekend during deer season with his entire family. He enjoyed hunting in the morning and a full family breakfast afterwards. The family would work and rest through the day. The evening hunt would be followed by a family meal, where all looked forward to Bob saying Grace. Bob was very strong in his faith which he would always bring up to anyone who would listen. He loved to sing church music and listen to it for hours when he could no longer sing. Sharing the gospel and telling people about his Savior was what he found brought him the most joy. Bob was committed to praising his God in every aspect of his life and spreading the Good news of Christ forgiving Grace. When he completed the Bethel Bible series, he advanced his knowledge of the message in the Bible and found one of his true passions in Life. Bob served the Church Council for St. John’s Evengelical Lutheran Church for four years. His family and savior were the most important things in his life. He went to be with Our Lord and Savior on November 19, 2020. He was preceded by his father Jack, mother Myrle and sister Myrle Ann Zunker. He is survived by his wife of 56 years Carole Ann Clauss Cauble, his three children Carole Renay Jandt and husband Dennis, Robert Randall Cauble Jr. and wife Susan, and Alex Benjamin Cauble. His Grandchildren Megan Lee and husband Christopher, Caitlin, Jacob Jandt, Robert Cauble III, and Shelby and Lexie Cauble. And his beloved Great Granddaughter Charlotte Monroe.
