CARPENTER, Robert  
CARPENTER, Robert Inspired by John Steinbeck's descriptions of Northern California, Bob moved from Malden, MA to San Francisco in 1957 after serving in the Air Force as an instrument repairman for the Strategic Air Command, stationed in the Aleutian Islands and Japan. San Francisco's public education and transportation system were a draw for Bob, and he took cable cars and other transport across the city to study Business Administration at San Francisco City College and SFSU while working at Wells Fargo Bank. At the bank, Bob met his future wife, Yvonne (Conn) Van Dyke. The two married in 1966 and had a daughter, Kimberly, in 1968. Bob was a loving husband and father with big heart and a feisty, fun-loving spirit. Bob and Yvonne remained friends even after divorcing, and Yvonne was able to visit him in the hospital twice in April just before he passed away. Wherever he lived, Bob was engaged in City Council affairs. For example he spoke in advocacy for the Santa Rosa Geysers Recharge Project in the 90s as well as other important local initiatives. Bob never failed to vote in an election for any office, no matter how minor. Bob could be seen on street corners around election time with hand-painted signs supporting candidates, or, if no candidates were strong favorites, his signs would simply say, "VOTE!!" His civic commitment extended to one of his favorite pastimes, picking up litter in parks and on the sides of highways. Without any formal adopt-a-highway sanctioning, he would often go out at sunrise with a couple of bags and fill them with trash that had been strewn overnight. In Sierra Vista, AZ, he would sometimes receive a note of thanks left in a jar on his stretch of road from someone who had witnessed his good work. Favorite tastes for Bob included shrimp louies, Spam/lettuce/tomato sandwiches with French dressing, and Miller High Life beer. Bob loved the music of John Denver and the writing of Shakespeare. He always supported the home teams where he lived, but he remained a faithful 49ers fan throughout the years. Bob is survived by his daughter, Kim Jellicoe; son-in-law, Roger Jellicoe; ex-wife, Yvonne Van Dyke; caretaker, Rhonda Stackhouse; and friend, Roosevelt Jackson. He is also survived by his nieces and their families in Texas and Arizona. Bob died on May 2, 2015 at Dameron Hospital in Stockton, CA at the age of 79 from various medical conditions resulting in heart failure. Funeral services will be held at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon on Tuesday May 19 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of donations, please put on a disposable glove or plastic baggie (or go bare-handed if you dare!) and pick up some trash the next time you are walking through your neighborhood or are on a hike in a beautiful place. And whatever your political leaning, VOTE!!
