Robert "Bob" Seger

  • "As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's..."
  • "As you endure this difficult time of sorrow, please turn to..."

Robert "Bob" Seger, age 90, passed away Jan. 25, 2019, in the comfort of the home he built 48 years ago at Pine Grove Ranch, Evergreen.
Bob was a Colorado native, born in Denver to Harold and Ferne (Lee) Seger, and grew up in the Wheat Ridge area. Bob married Ida Mae (Harrell) on Nov. 21, 1948, and they moved to the Evergreen area where they lived until her death in 2012.
At an early age, he began building houses with his dad. Bob was a construction superintendent for DeLano Construction for more than 30 years, building many large projects such as Evergreen Fire Station No. 1, an addition to Wilmot Elementary School, the Cadet Center at Air Force Academy, the jail in Georgetown, condos in Dillon, a sorority house in Fort Collins, and churches and mortuaries just to name a few. He was an accomplished woodworker and remodeler.
Bob was a resident of Evergreen for almost 65 years. He was a volunteer for the Evergreen Fire Department and retired after 20 years. He was a past member of the Jefferson County Mounted Posse and Masonic Lodge, and he was a 4-H leader.
He was a proud, strong man who loved his family and friends, old cars and trucks, his animals, and his life in Evergreen.
Bob is survived by his three daughters, Kathie (Bob) Surmeier, Linda (Steve) Story and Cheryl (Les) Pendleton; three granddaughters, Shelly (Sean) Stewart, Stacey Pendleton and Krystle Surmeier; and two, sisters Gloria (Frank) Langley and Betty (Gary) Avis. He is further survived by his extended Hladik family and many friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his wife Ida Mae and sister Alma Alexander.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019, at 10 a.m. at The Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park, 26624 N. Turkey Creek Road, Evergreen, CO 80439.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Evergreen Fire Department or the Humane Society.
