Robert H. OCHSNER Bob Ochsner peacefully passed away at home on May 6, 2012, at the age of 90. He grew up in West Seattle, graduated W.S. High, and married his neighborhood sweetheart, Patricia. He worked at Boeing, then joined the US Naval Reserve and was stationed at Catalina Island. Shortly after returning to Seattle, he started his own auto dealership, Bob Ochsner Cars, which he operated for 55 years at various locations in Seattle, with the last and longest location in W.S. Bob was a community leader and gave his time as President of Rotary, Kiwanis, and the Washington Independent Auto Dealers Assoc. He was also active in Big Brothers, Little League, the Magnolians, Seattle Elks Club, and sponsored local race cars. He had a strong work ethic, an outgoing personality, was a prolific story teller, and the king of one liners- "this, that, and the next thing". Bob loved to garden, tinker around the house, dig clams, swim in Puget Sound at his summer cabin in Indianola, and play cribbage or pinnacle with his friends and family. He is survived by his wife of 69 years, and 5 of 6 children; Robert, Linda, Jim, Kathy, John, and 14 grandchildren. Funeral Mass will be celebrated Today, Friday, at 11:00 AM at Our Lady of Fatima Church, 3218 W. Barrett St., 98199. Please sign Bob's on-line Guest Book at www.Legacy.com Hoffner Fisher & Harvey
