Shimmin, Robert Morris  
Robert Morris Shimmin passed away peacefully on Tuesday August 25, 2015. Bob was born in Sierra Madre, CA on June 5, 1928 and grew up in Southern Ca. He met Patricia Sherman when he spotted her walking home from high school with her girlfriends in Long Beach CA. They married in 1948 in a small wedding attended by family and close friends, including those girlfriends that she was walking with and Bob's best friend who was riding with him that day. Bob and Pat were married for 67 years. They were blessed with 4 children Ronald Shimmin (Pamela), Barabara Shimmin, Dennis Shimmin & Karen Wright (Corey). And 6 grandchildren Tamra McFarland (Matthew), Tara McLean (Brent), Jeremiah Kalb, Jennifer Anthony (Clint), Cambria Ivey ( Colin) & Blake Hunter. And 3 great- grandchildren, Camden McFarland, Morgan Mc Farland, and Alexander McLean. Bob is also survived by his sisters Virginia Conner, and Dorothy Balliet. Bob was a faithful member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and he and Pat were devoted members of the Galt, Placerville, and Lodi English Oaks Seventh-day Adventist churches. Pastor Norman Osterander and Pastor Roy Hager were especially comforting to Bob in his final days. Bob spent his career as a building contractor. He was a licensed pilot, but his real passion, one that he had the joy of sharing with his son Ron, was rebuilding antique cars and collecting antique trains. Bob loved his wife Pat and was a constant companion and care giver for her during his final years. Helping her daily as she lives with Alzheimer's disease. The example of his devotion is his lasting legacy to his family. The family would like to thank the loving staff and rehab department at Vienna Nursing and Rehabilitation for their care and love in the last year; as well as the friends that were made while at Vienna. He felt a real comradery with other family care givers. Services will be private.
