With a grieving heart we are announcing that the founder of CornerStone Family Services , Bob Uhle, peacefully passed away on August 20, 2018. While living on this earth, Bob demonstrated the life of Philippians 1:21: “For me to live is Christ” and is now experiencing the joy of the second half of the verse, “and to die is gain,” as he is more fully in the presence of his Lord Jesus Christ.
Part of Bob’s legacy – beyond the multitude of lives positively impacted by him directly – is the training and mentoring of the counselors and coaches at CornerStone Family Services. Knowing that his time on this earth was short, Bob labored to impart his vision and love for people in the staff and board of directors of CornerStone Family Services. We aim to continue to live out Bob’s vision and heart for people for decades to come.
As Bob laid out at the founding of the agency: CornerStone Family Services strives to provide counseling that reflects the God-given worth of each individual regardless of their spiritual status in life. Our staff endeavors to promote the dignity, uniqueness, intrinsic value, and potential of our clients at whatever stage of life they encounter our services. No one can escape the pain and suffering this world has to offer. We strive as a community of like-minded professionals to combine the gifts, challenges, and opportunities God has given us to help others navigate life’s storms.
There will be a “Celebration of Life” for Bob at Upper Arlington Lutheran Church (Mill Run) on September 15th at 1:00pm. Further details will be posted at a later date.
Nearly 25 years ago, God called Bob Uhle to go back to school and begin a Christian Counseling ministry in Central Ohio. Two years ago, Bob moved on from that practice, uncertain what God had next. At just the right time, in just the right way God provided specific direction! In the very month when doors from the past were closing, Bob’s friend, Psychologist Ken Beavers, Ph.D., was closing the doors on his own non-profit counseling practice after twenty two years. He agreed to turn Cornerstone Family Counseling over to Linda and Bob Uhle. 20+ Counselors joined them, and they all began this new adventure of CornerStone Family Services! Today, Bob Uhle serves as Acting Executive Director at CornerStone Family Services.
Bob Uhle has wrestled with chronic illness for over forty years and has had the amazing gift of three successful kidney transplants over that period of time. Through this experience, he has come to appreciate the many small and large gifts of life. It also seems that Bob is learning slowly that God is trustworthy, no matter what!
Bob believes that authentic relationships are God’s primary tool for reaching a lost world and for emotional healing in life.
“I see the need to know more fully the One who fully knows me and loves me anyway, as my essential purpose in life. As a result, I need to take all that He has entrusted to me, and use it for His purposes. I am blessed to be married to an amazing woman since 1980; I have an awesome, fiercely independent young adult daughter who humbles me every time I hear someone refer to me as an “expert”!” – Bob

“Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken.”― C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
