Obituary of Robert Brown Salmon

Robert Brown Salmon, 56, of 209 Timberlake Drive, Lynchburg, Virginia unexpectedly passed away Thursday July 15th, 2021. Robert or (Ba) as his many nieces and nephews would call him, was born to Edward Austin (EA) Salmon Jr. and Evelyn Faulkner Harris in 1965 in Lynchburg, Virginia. 
Robert was predeceased by his parents Edward Austin Salmon Jr. and Evelyn Faulkner Harris, his fraternal twin sister Robbin Salmon Viar, his sister Jenny Salmon Tucker, his brother William Lee Salmon and his nephew Wesley M. Shafer.
Robert is survived by his stepmother Rebecca Blackburn Salmon, sister Gwen Salmon Hughes, sister Vicky H. Simpson, brother James R. Hughes, III and wife Jean, sister Tammy H. Brock and husband Jason, sister Jo Ellen Shafer, brother in laws Greg Tucker, Cris Viar and Wayne Shafer, nieces Ashley T. Myers, Kristen S. Meli, Kelley S. Taylor, Lauren S. Hughes, Lindsey H. Prather, Jessica B. Ayers, Madison W. Farrar, Rebecca N. Hawkins and nephews H. Austin Hughes, Robert L. Brock, Alex Hughes, Josh J. Hawkins, Morgan C. Viar, Michael E. Viar and Riley S. Hawkins.
Robert was a United States Marine and absolutely loved the time he spent serving his country. Proud of his service was an understatement. He spent many hours throughout his last years with long time love Cindy Trujillo and his beloved dog, Bosco. Robert was born and raised on Timberlake. He absolutely loved the lake, the community, and though he was separated from such throughout portions of his life journey, he always knew that, one day, he would be back on Timberlake, somehow, someway. 
Robert's heart was as big as they come. If you were in his circle, whether in the early stages of his life, the mid or the latter, whenever you would see him throughout his life, he did not recognize any time lapse whatsoever, and, for those few moments, it was as if time stood still. He was right back in the thick of it with you! God love him and God rest your soul Robert. 
Donations in his name can be made to the USMC or Lynchburg Humane Society.
