Phoenix - 1/11/1926 - 6/4/2018

Robert John Bochek, 92, was born in Milwaukee, WI to Irene (Kihslinger) and Wenzel Bochek. His 3 younger siblings and their spouses preceded him in death: Joyce (Robert) Berns, Donna (Jim) Tourville and Eugene (Patricia) Bochek. Bob attended Milwaukee Trade & Tech High School then flew with the WWII Air Corps B-17 Bombers. He attended Layton Art School in Milwaukee and Chicago Art Institute before moving to AZ. His wife Wendy (Wanda Fraser Taylor) also preceded him in death. Bob was a professional artist, drawing and photographing many AZ scenes and businesses. Most of Bob's projects were not as fortunate as he was in surviving a fire. Bob was a survivor, never giving up his battle with cancer. His long full life gives testament to his belief in healthful eating and living, including having a spiritual life. Bob had a big heart, donating his time, talent and money even when not convenient. 18 nieces and nephews survive Bob. His many friends will also miss him. There will be a memorial service for Bob at the (VA) National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona at 23029 N. Cave Creek Rd. in Phoenix on July 19th at 10 am.
