Obituaries » Charles R. “Bob” Priest Jr.

Charles Robert “Bob” Priest Jr., age 55, of Gaithersburg, Md., passed away on Saturday, September 2, 2017, at ManorCare Health of Potomac, Md.

He was born October 27, 1961, in Washington, D.C., and grew up in Amissville. A 1980 graduate of Culpeper High School and a 1984 graduate of Virginia Tech in civil engineering, Mr. Priest was a proud member of the Marching Virginians and Kappa Kappa Psi. He had previously served with both Amissville Volunteer Fire and Rescue and the Virginia Tech Rescue Squad. He was a professional engineer in civil engineering, a member of the Design-Build Institute of America and a principal for Planning, Design, and Development for AECOM for whom he had worked for 33 years.

His family was always his top priority and, with them, he was heavily involved with Pathways Baptist Church in Gaithersburg, having served as an elder, deacon, Sunday school teacher, and performing in the orchestra, choir and hand bell choir. A Boy Scout growing up, his love of scouting led to his sons’ involvement and his own service as a Cub Master. He was also an avid sports fan, always cheering on his Hokies, Redskins and Nationals.

He leaves behind his wife “Maggie,” Margaret Ann Munns Priest, who was the love of his life, and his sons James Robert Priest and Mathew Mason Priest, also of Gaithersburg, who were his pride and joy. He is also survived by his parents, Charles Robert Priest Sr., and Mary Settle Priest of Amissville; his sister, Lisa Priest Morrison of Warrenton, and several nieces and nephews.

The family will receive visitors at 11 a.m. Thursday, September 7, at Amissville Baptist Church, Amissville Baptist Church, 776 Viewtown Road, Amissville,
where the funeral will start at 11 a.m.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Pathways Baptist Church in Gaithersburg, Md., with visitation starting at 1 p.m.

Memorial contributions may be made to Pathways Baptist Church, 200 W. Diamond Ave., Gaithersburg, Maryland 20877.
