Robert Joseph McGill. Born April 24, 1938. Passed away October 9, 2013. Graduated from San Juan High School and Sacramento State University. Bob was the beloved husband of the former Joyce DaPrato for 55 years and loving father of JK and Mike. He spent his entire 52-year career at Aerojet in Rancho Cordova, where he was the former Fire Chief and retired as the Fire Marshal. Bob also served as President of the national Fire Department Safety Officers Association and was Chairman for the CalOES Region IV Local Emergency Planning Committee. "RJ dedicated his life to Aerojet for over 52 years. He will always be remembered as a friend, a mentor and a respected leader. His presence, his laughter, his intellect will be sorely missed and never forgotten. He was a warm and gentle human being." Bob was an avid Radio Control Airplane builder and flyer. Bob was also dedicated to his son's activities and was the former President of Orangevale Little League and Orangevale Rams/Sunrise Chiefs Pop Warner team. He is survived by his wife Joyce, sons JK and Mike, daughters in-law Colleen and Teri, grandchildren Morgan, Connor, Trent and Tanner, brothers in-law Eddie and Clem DaPrato, nieces Julie Enos and Kelley Simoni, nephew James DaPrato, and his faithful dog Paddy. At Bob's request, no services are planned. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Bob's memory can be made to the Sacramento SPCA.
