Robert Eugene Kamerman, 61, left this world to be with his Lord and receive his promised inheritance after battling cancer. Bob was a quiet man who lived his faith and never tired of reading his Bible. Bob was passionate about making and flying airplanes. His knowledge of the history of aeronautics and airplanes was well known and appreciated. He was a lifelong resident of Churchill and graduated from Manhattan Christian School in 1969. Bob joined the Navy in August 1969 and then attended Helena Vo-Tech in 1972 where he received his A & P License, allowing him to work on airplane engines and frames. Bob then joined his brother and formed Kamerman Brothers Construction. They worked together for over 40 years all over Montana and adjoining states. His favorite vacations were attending Fly-Ins and talking to other pilots. His final trip was seeing his son graduate from Marine Boot Camp. He is survived by his wife, Sharon; daughter, Melissa (John) Vitry; son, Private Christopher Kamerman; mother, Minnie Kamerman; brothers, Tom (Connie) Kamerman and Howard (Barbara) Kamerman; nephew, Glenn (Beth) Kamerman and their children Doug and Charles; nephew, Jon Kamerman; niece, Kristy (Ted) Sullivan and their children Ethan and Alex; niece, Amy (Joe) Braaksma and their son Joe; and many uncles, aunts, and cousins.
