Robert Chapman has passed away

Robert Chapman was perhaps best known to JFK researchers as a friend of Mary Ferrell.  It's almost like they were attached at the hip.  He was taking such care of her that at one time I thought he was Mary's son.

 He had a stroke a few years ago and never completely recovered from that.

Robert ran a restaurant in Memphis called Molly's. 

ROBERT ANDERSON CHAPMAN, 60, owner of Molly's La Casita Restaurant since 1982, died peacefully on May 30, 2010. Robert is survived by his loving wife of 26 years, Jamie Goree Chapman, daughter Amanda Bailey Bogart (Alan), his mother Betty Wells Chapman, sisters, Susan Wilson (Clayton), Debbie Trimble (Jerry), brothers, Hal Chapman (Linda) and Charles Chapman. He was preceded in death by his father Arthur Robert Chapman and an infant sister, Rebecca. Robert was a graduate of Whitehaven High School and Memphis State University. He was also a board member emeritus of the University of Memphis Art Museum and a member of The Memphis Restaurant Association. He was a loving, kind and spiritual soul. Before his stroke, Robert was an avid golfer and a gifted artist. He will be greatl;y missed by his many friends and loving family. Visitation will be Tuesday, June 1 from 5-7 pm., and funeral service will be Wednesday, June 2 at 1 pm., both at Memorial Park Funeral Home. Interment will follow in Memorial Park Cemetery. Memorials may be made to The Church Health Center or the American Stroke Association.

Molly's La Casita will go on despite loss of owner Robert Chapman
