“Pat Robertson dedicated his life to preaching the Gospel, helping those in need, and educating the next generation,” CBN wrote to remember his legacy.
He was married to his wife Dede for 67 years until she died in 2022. Their loving marriage bore four children, 14 grandchildren, and 24 great-grandchildren. Pat Robertson’s legacy will never be forgotten by the people whom he has inspired with his passion for the Lord.
“Pat had a hunger for knowledge of the Lord, and he wanted to share the love and faithfulness of Jesus with the world. His heart’s desire was that all people come to know Jesus.”
