Robert will be sorely missed by the Republican Party. He helped increase voter registration in Franklin County which helped elect the first Republican sheriff and commissioner in 1990.
He was chairman of the Franklin County GOP, Granville GOP, 1st District chairman and created the N.C. County Chairmans Association in 1990 which he chaired until 2007.

Robert Rector was an amazing repository of historical facts. I've never met anyone who had as much historical information at their fingertiips as he.
He was also dedicated to the Boy Scouts in Louisburg.
My deep sorrow and condolences go out to his family.
Mr. Rector was one of my history professors at Louisburg College when I was there from 1983 until 1985. I enjoyed his class and his style of teaching. I want to extend my condolences to his family and say that that Louisburg College has lost one of its greatest professors ever!

Your scouting family
Mr. Rector was one of my professors at Louisburg college and I enjoyed each class that I was in of his. Louisburg college has lost a great professor. Mr. Rector's family & friends are in my prayers and thoughts.
My condolences to the Rector family. I got to know Bob during his days as chairman of the Franklin County GOP (back before I decided to abandon any pretense of political affiliation) and consider it a privilege to have worked with him promoting what were, at the time, our shared beliefs.
Robert Rector was a dedidcated public servant. While he served as Chairman of the Franklin County Republican Party, the Party grew and achieved unprecedented success. During his tenure, Republicans Sheriff Robert Rector and Commissioner Harry Foy were elected to office. He was a great and gifted leader and also a very close, personal friend. He will be missed.
