Robert Allen (Bob) Megahan, 79, of Hot Springs Village passed away on Friday, August 18, 2017. Bob was born August 1, 1938 in Wheeling, West Virginia to the late Burke and Alethea (Coyner) Megahan.
While in high school, Bob met Marion Weisal, the love of his life. They dated for five years before marrying in 1960. Bob graduated from West Virginia University that same year and then spent the next 34 years working for Exxon/Mobil and its subsidiaries. Following an early retirement, he and Marion moved to Hot Springs Village in August 1994, where they quickly filled their time traveling, bird watching, entertaining, and participating in many clubs, charities, schools and foundations. Bob was an active member of Christ of the Hills United Methodist Church where he served as a Stephen Minister. Bob became well known around Hot Springs Village for generously donating his time and money to many organizations including Arkansas Hospice, Jackson House, Kiwanis, National Park College (creating the Robyn Lynn Megahan Scholarship Endowment), Boy’s and Girl’s Club, mentoring at Mountain Pine Elementary School, and many others. Bob was a very special member of this community who’s hugs and gifts of time and money will be missed dearly.
Bob is preceded in death by Marion Elizabeth (his wife of 54 years), daughter Robyn Lynn Megahan, and two brothers’ William and Burke. He is survived by his son, Robert Scott Megahan and wife Jean of Cypress, Texas, and his two beautiful granddaughters: Allison Nicole and Jenna Lynn Megahan, and one very special niece Carolyn Robinson of Columbus, Ohio.
