Robert L. Macklin

We would introduce and present him first as a true Man of God and the list would ensue in the following manner a lovingly, devoted husband and father, a proud brother, uncle, humble leader and loyal servant. The story does not stop there. Reverend Robert L. Macklin was a man of great integrity, wisdom, and faith. He often said "Love is the principle thing" and his life epitomized this very concept. The reach of his love and concern for people far surpassed his home, family, and his church, but it stretched out to anyone who would accept it.

He was not alone in his quest to be a help to those young people seeking to better their condition, the love of his life Mother Johnie Mae Macklin, graciously took her place beside him and together they made a positive impact on many lives. Mother Macklin was not afforded the opportunity to formalize her education when she was young, but she studied the English language and taught herself the proper usage.

Strong Advocate for Education

Being avid readers themselves, Reverend & Mother Macklin were strong advocates of education. After the demise of Mother Macklin in 2000, Supt. Macklin started a local scholarship fund at The Rising Star Church of God In Christ furthering his belief and understanding that the power of education and learning are a few of life's most important achievements. Not only in emotional support, but through his personal philanthropic contributions, he assisted many who aspired to pursue higher educational and vocational goals.

His support of others was never overshadowed by his own ambition; he was quite comfortable in allowing others to succeed to limitless heights. He was a man of few words, but the tapestry of his character stood as a beacon to all who knew him. The Robert Lee Macklin Scholarship Fund is an extension of the loving legacy of the man who bears its name- Robert Lee Macklin.
