Robert B. Provence Obituary
Robert Blake Provence

San Pedro Native Robert Blake Provence unexpectedly passed away in his sleep on Saturday, January 6, 2018.

Bob was born on July 10, 1947 as the oldest of two brothers. He grew up in San Pedro, and spent his summers surfing and spearfishing in Crystal Cove and the South Bay. He was a medaled swimmer and water polo player through High School and College, and became a LA City Lifeguard at age 17. Years later he became a Los Angeles City Firefighter, before he retired at age 44, and moved to Maui in the early nineties. He built a house with his son and resided there for 20 plus years, surfing and golfing with his friends, before returning to San Pedro in 2005 to be closer to his family.

Bob is survived by his two children: daughter, Jennifer and her husband, Rob Dobos-Bubno; son, Matt Provence and his wife, Heather. He is also survived by five grandchildren: Trinon, Tyler, Alex, Hayden, and Ryan.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at the Top of the San Pedro Fish Market from 3pm-7pm. Paddle Out at a later date, to be announced, both local and in Maui. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits
