Bob was born March 17, 1943 in Everett, Washington to the late Herman and Eleanor Paasch. He married his bride Sandy in 1995, merging their two families.
Bob was a Marine first and foremost, serving as a radioman in Okinawa before the Vietnam War. He was a lifelong carpenter with an affinity for the craft. Bob loved his family, and traveled up and down the West Coast for frequent visits in all weather conditions. His passions have been dirt bike racing, motorcycles, skiing, fishing, golfing, and camping. Can you say, "Outdoorsman"? He couldn't get enough four-wheeling and where there wasn't a path he made his own - much like how he lived his life.
Bob is survived by his wife, Sandy; three children, Dionne, Rob and Keith and three bonus children, Sabrina, Donna and Christina along with their spouses, Stan, Jen, Ketty, Jorge, Abel and Travis. He is also survived by two siblings, ten grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
