Bob was born July 23, 1922 in Sunnyside and moved to the Denmark district as a child. He graduated from Kittitas HS, served as an MP in the Army in WWII
and married Gloria, the only child of Mr and Mrs Fred Derrick of the Badger Pocket, before moving to the Tri City area where he farmed for 30 years. They retired to his slice of paradise in Colville in 1980. They traveled a great deal and he often painted pictures of the places they had been. He always liked to keep busy and could be found building something, tinkering in his shop or greenhouse or feeding his tame deer, chipmunks and birds.
He will be greatly missed by all his family. Private family services will be held.
