Robert L. Dove Obituary

Robert L. Dove of Yuba City, CA was called to be with our Lord on November 9, 2013. He was born June 7, 1926 in Canistota, SD to Frank and Emma Dove. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Mary, and 4 sisters and 3 brothers. Robert graduated from Yuba City High School, and until his retirement, he worked for Harter Packing Company. Mary and Robert were married for 46 years and together they raised their family. Dad enjoyed his home for the past 58 years. Loved his family and faithfully instilled in them a strong work ethic, sense of responsibility and set a fine example by his words and actions.

He enjoyed his Friday night poker games with friends from work, spending time with fellow Moose Lodge members, but the best times of all were those spent with the family at Lake Francis and Thousand Trails camping grounds.

Robert is survived by his four children: Sherry (George) Warmoth, Karen (Garth) Long, Cathy Dove and Robert Dove Jr. He has 4 grandchildren: Eddie (Gina) Steininger, Misty Steininger, Laura (Dave) Cataldo, Nickole (Sam) Moore, and 8 great- grandchildren. He had a close family of nieces and nephews and sister-in-law, Lois Dove of Sacramento, CA.

The family is deeply grateful for the outpouring of love and prayers. The most heartfelt gratitude goes to Dr. Keith McAfee who so lovingly took care of Dad, and had his utmost trust and respect. Also loving thanks to Jim Chance, Dad's caregiver and constant companion who allowed him to spend so many years at his home with total dignity.

This is not the end, but the beginning. Our comfort lies in the truth "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord..." (Revelations 14:13, KJV)

Arrangements are under the direction of Sierra View Memorial Park. Graveside services: 10 a.m. November 15, 2013.
