Go Back

Dr. Robert Sheldon Dewers


Riverside Nature Center in Kerrville sadly notes the demise of Dr. Robert S. "Bob" Dewers, who passed away Thursday, July 24.
He was a leader in establishing Riverside Nature Center. Through his efforts, we received a Texas Forest Service grant that made possible the center's arboretum, which became Texas' largest stand of native trees.
That grant was only a part of the many ways Bob enriched the center throughout the years - from working the grounds to sharing the wealth of his keen mind.
Our deepest sympathies go out to Bob's family - son Alan and daughter Linda Sue, as well as to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Thank you, Bob, for all you did for Riverside Nature Center. May you rest in peace.
Funeral services took place Tuesday, July 29, at Grimes Funeral Chapel, Kerrville. Interment was in Restland Cemetery in Dallas.
