About Santa Bob
“JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON” is the main thought in my mind in becoming
So looking forward to the 2019 Season, each year
has been better than before and I look for 2019 to be even better. In addition to being back at Bass Pro for
2019, I will be the Santa at Rhodes Hall in downtown Atlanta. Please check the website at https://www.georgiatrust.org/tours-events/santa/ for schedule and sign up. The schedule is also on this
website. Something very unique and inspiring that I discovered about myself in 2017 was that I really have a
real heart for Special Needs Children (of all ages). The look on their faces when they see Santa is truly
inspiring and heart felt. I hope to do much more of that in 2019 in addition to be Santa for all children of all
I believe Santa Claus displays love, hope and giving for all people,
especially the children.
Seeing the smiles on the children’s faces is a tremendous blessing to me. I have worked with children in organized sports, Church Drama and Music, teaching Sunday School and Bible
School ever since I was old enough to serve in those capacities.
I have been married for 53 years, 2
children and 5 grandchildren. A faithful member of my Church with a heart for the needs of
people throughout the world.
What a great year in 2018 I had as Santa Bob. It
started the week after Thanksgiving and was almost non-stop till Christmas
Day. My season consisted of being Santa at Bass Pro Shop in Macon, Skating Rinks, Church's, School's, a Charity
event at Georgia Tech, Nursing Homes and reading to children in Pre School and Elementary Schools. I
participated in tree lightnings, parades and was highlighted by riding in on a Fire Engine for an event. I will
again this coming season to the best of my ability try convey the Spirit of Christmas and ignite imagination and
to inspire hope to all I come in contact with.
