Robert Allen Loehr II
Dec. 6, 1946 - May 16, 2021
San Jose, California
Robert Allen Loehr II was born in San Jose California on December 3, 1946. He was the oldest of two brothers, Rich and Jim, and one sister, Mary Margaret. Bob, as he preferred to be called, peacefully passed away on May 16, 2021 with his loved ones by his side. Bob was the loving husband of his wife of Thirty-two years, Claire. He was, also, survived by his step-sons David and Darren Winters, granddaughter Harlow, his sister Mary Margaret Loehr, his brothers and their wives Rich & Cheri Loehr and Jim & Barbara Loehr. Bob also had many loving nieces and nephews. Fourteen and one-half years ago, Bob was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and given a few years to live. Through many medical regimens he beat those odds and refused to give up. He was always encouraged when a new cancer treatment was available, ready and willing to volunteer and continue the fight. Bob never lost faith that a cure would come his way.
Bob grew up in Willow Glen and graduated from Willow Glen High School in 1964. He continued his education and graduated from Stanford in 1968 and Santa Clara Law School in 1975. Coming from a family of doctors, he became their legal counsel along with being the In-house Attorney for San Jose and Great Oaks Water Companies. His brothers and sister were invaluable resources during his cancer fight.
Retiring from his law career in 2010 gave Bob time to figure out how to win against Claire on the golf course, work in the garden growing spring fruits and vegetables, tending the hybrid irises, "Snow Flurry", his aunt developed, and sometimes planting alfalfa for the local deer. Bob loved to cook and was always working to come up with new dishes for Claire to enjoy. You would often hear Bob singing these crazy songs as he was creating in the kitchen. Bob loved to travel, seeing new environments, and playing new golf courses from Europe to many parts of United States. He was always interested in learning new ideas through reading, computing, or watching television programs. He wanted to be active in new conversations with friends or new acquaintances. His friends would always get a new joke that was usually quite silly, they loved that in him.
There will be a private family celebration of Bob's life in Pacific Grove at a future date. Bob loved going to the "Pink House" in Pacific Grove and walking on the beach with his two dogs Kahlua and Rusty each morning, it was his calming place.
If desired, donations can be made to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. This organization was very close to his heart.

My older sister, Linda, (1946-2007) went to Willow Glen with Bob and his brother, Rich, was in my class of 1967. His dad played a very important role in our family being our family doctor who actually made house calls for my mom and dad. I believe his dad delivered my sister and I at San Jose Hospital. Rest peacefully, Bob.
