Reverend Robert B. Louthan (1933-2013), pastor of Babcock/LRPC for 35 years, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on January 25, 2013. 

Bob’s Memorial Service at LRPC

We are sorrowful, yet rejoice that Bob has been taken into the immediate presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and is suffering no longer. We grieve with Sue and the rest of his family, yet not without hope, knowing ourselves the certainty of the resurrection and the hope of heaven for all who rest upon Jesus for their salvation.

His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’

Matthew 25:21

Pastor Louthan led Our Early leaders into what is now Loch Raven Presbyterian Church (PCA), that was incorporated in October 2, 1982 after leaving Babcock Memorial Presbyterian Church (UPC).
