On Feb. 12, 2015, Dr. Robert Warren of Anchorage, Alaska, died while on vacation in Hawaii. He was 66. "Dr. Bob," as he was affectionately known, was a beloved member of the Alaska community. Robert was born in 1948, in San Pedro, Calif., to Robert and Marilyn Warren. Robert dreamed of becoming a dentist since he was a young man, which led him to graduate from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in 1973. After graduating, Robert joined the U.S. Army and served at Fort Bragg before moving to Alaska in 1974, when he began weaving himself into the fabric of the young state he loved. Robert served the people of Alaska for more than 30 years at Denali Dental Care. Dr. Bob was known widely for his expert dentistry skills, innovation and, most important to him, dedication to the well-being of his patients. He was the recipient of many honors and he served his profession in Alaska and in the western states with enthusiasm and tremendous devotion. Dr. Bob was especially proud of his long-tenure on the Alaska Dental Board and Western Regional Examining Board and the role he played in the improvement of dental services across the state. Robert valued being part of the Alaska community and contributed his time and energy to many civic organizations and charities. He was also an avid wine collector, scratch golfer, accomplished chef, passionate fly fisherman and frustrated Alaska gardener. Robert especially loved to travel with friends, taking every opportunity to experience Alaska and the rest of the world. And he was always the leader, organizer, planner and cheerleader for all occasions and events. Above all, Robert loved his family and friends with great passion and intensity. For Robert, family was not only those related through birth or marriage, but those many people he found along the way and made a part of his life. He loved easily and boundlessly. In this way, Dr. Bob created a large, extended family. That family is and will forever be grateful to have been a part of his adventure through this world, and to have been loved by him so dearly. Robert leaves behind his beloved and devoted life partner of 25 years, David Mayberry. He also leaves in Orange County, Calif., his brother, Richard Campbell (Barbara); nephew, Craig Campbell (Christy); and niece Lisa Campbell Price. He was particularly fond of his four grand-nieces and -nephews, Kamryn, Kyle, Blake and Paige. His visits with them were among his most precious memories. A Celebration of Life will be held in Robert's honor on May 7, 2015, at O'Malley's on the Green beginning at 5 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Robert's name to Special Olympics, AWAIC or Boys and Girls Club of Alaska. Arrangements were with Janssen's Evergreen Memorial Chapel.
