Robert Glynn Tisdale, 71, a resident of Morgan City, passed away Wednesday, January 3, 2018 at his home surrounded by his loving family.
Robert was born on June 29, 1946 in Pascagoula, Mississippi, the son of John and Irene Fortenberry Tisdale.
Robert was a faithful and active member of Pharr Chapel United Methodist Church, devoted in walking with the Lord. His whole life was about his family. This was evident in the way he loved, supported and guided them. He loved his grandchildren and loved traveling to their sporting events, cheering them on while they played. While his children were young he coached them in Dixie Youth Little League. He enjoyed watching football and rooting the LSU Tigers on to victory. For those who knew him, he was the most honest, patient, giving and caring person you ever met; never angry and always carrying a calm demeanor. He was truly a selfless son, husband, brother, father, grandfather and friend.
