Robert "Bob" Andrew Perez passed away on Nov. 10, 2017, of pneumonia at Providence Hospital in Anchorage, Alaska, with his wife at his side.
Bob was born on Nov. 18, 1936, at La Junta, Colo., to Pete and Mildred (Whatley) Perez. His family lived in Wyoming and Montana before moving to Washington. He graduated from Moses Lake, Washington, High School in 1954, and had maintained lifelong friendships with classmates. During 1955-1959, Bob served in the U.S. Air Force, much of the time in Okinawa, Japan. He continued his education in Washington and Alaska. On Feb. 14, 1990, Bob married Jeanette "Jan" Aushra in Hawaii. At the time of his retirement, Bob was employed by the State of Alaska. A true Alaskan, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and hiking with Jan and his dogs.
Surviving Bob are his wife; daughter, Debra (husband Donald) Lane; sons, John Perez and Joseph Perez; grandchildren, Nicole Lane, Jonathan Pipkin and Adam Lane; sisters, Mary (husband Jack) Maver and Peggy Palafox; brother, Joseph (wife Sheila) Perez; and sisters-in-law, Jan Perez and Julie Erickson. Bob was preceded in death by his parents; son, Robert Perez Jr.; brother, Peter Perez; and sisters, Olga Perez and Dolores Lemm. He leaves many other family members and friends. A gentle soul, he is truly missed by many.
Bob's family is thankful to all those who provided medical care and other support for him during his illness.
At his request, no services will be held and interment will be at Fort Richardson National Cemetery at a later date.
