Obituary of Robert Wayne Caldwell

Robert Wayne Caldwell, known to friends as ‘Boss Hawg’, passed away peacefully on April 20, 2020, at his home surrounded by family and loved ones.

A native of Owens Wells and Jackson, Mississippi, Robert was well known in the heavy equipment business. In his later years he moved to Eastover, SC where he owned 2 bars, Boss Hawg’s and O’Kellys, which he was a huge part of until his death.

He was a member of the Carolina Rebels Motorcycle Club and enjoyed his brothers and riding his motorcycle. He was so proud of affiliation and contributed his time and effort to his community.

He was a big proponent of charity work and supported many causes through benefits and donations.

He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Monica Shive Caldwell, a daughter, Brandye Caldwell Atkinson, a son, Robert (Berto) Caldwell, Samantha Cole Caldwell, 4 grandchildren,  Kaitlyn Caldwell, Kyler Atkinson, Ana Arechiga, Gabe Arechiga, 3 great grandchildren, Gunner Matthew Caldwell, Bryson Cole Atkinson, and Hazleigh Rae Hoard, 2 sisters, Tammy Caldwell Palmer and Michelle Caldwell Douglas and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert Ben Caldwell and Ouida Jeannette Farmer Caldwell of Jackson, Mississippi.

He will be cremated in Columbia, SC and a Memorial ride and Celebration of Life will be held when his grandson is back on American soil later this summer.
