Robert Frank Harik Obituary

Robert Frank Harik, 83, peacefully passed from this life on August 18, 2016 with family by his side. Although he lost a courageous fight against prostate cancer, he did not let cancer take away his humor and loving spirit.

Bob was born in Wilkes-Barre, PA on March 17, 1933. He served in the U.S. Coast Guard and the Merchant Marines, before joining the Federal Aviation Administration in 1958 as an Air Traffic Controller. He went on to become a facility manager, branch manager and division manager before retiring in 1989.

In retirement, he was able to pursue his love of fly fishing and golf. He was also a tireless volunteer helping to locate photographs for memorial online tributes of Vietnam Veterans who sacrificed so dearly for their country. Bob was always eager to help his fellow man.

Bob was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather who leaves behind his wife Pat, children Doug, Debbie, Rob (Dianna), Ron (Pam), and Stephanie (Chad); grandchildren Ashley, Jessica, Brad, Michael, Avalon, Allyssa, Shannon, Samantha, Henry, and Max; and great-grandchildren Kyle, Ethan, William, Tyler, and Jayden. He was predeceased by his mother, father, five brothers and two sisters.

A memorial service will be held at St. James of Jerusalem Episcopal Church in Yuba City on September 3. A celebration of Bob's life, to which all family and friends are invited, will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 11 at Peach Tree Golf and Country Club, 2043 Simpson Dantoni Road, Marysville.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to your favorite charitable organization in Bob's honor.
