Robert Lloyd
(Bob) Dolan

We hoped there were going to be more years of talks, travels and tacos. If you knew Bob, you knew he was as good at listening to stories as he was telling them. He'd remember your story down to the smallest details and take delight in passing it along to others. As long as you were passionate about what you were doing, he was happy for you. He was truly an open-minded, accepting, nonjudgmental and worldly wise man. He departed on his latest journey on June 28, 2013, when he succumbed to myelofibrosis. Bob is survived by his wife of 45 years, Margaret Morgan; daughters, Alison Lewis (Pete), Kara Dolan Trapani (Giuseppe), and son, Dennis; two beloved grandchildren, Medwen Ana Lewis and Nino Roberto Trapani; his father, Jerry Dolan; brothers, Jim Dolan (Ann) and Jerry Dolan; sisters, Ellen Jensen (Bruce), Carol Warpeha, Diane Cycz (Steve), Cathy Cleveland (Dave); and cousin Don Sadler. Bob was predeceased by his mother, Jeanne Sudano; his stepmother, Marion Dolan; and his in-laws Jim and Ann Morgan. Uncle Bob will also be missed by his 24 nieces and nephews; 15 great nieces and nephews; and the Morgan Family. Born October 22, 1939 in Chicago, Illinois, Bob was raised in the South Bay area of California. He graduated from Loyola High School in 1957 and received his BS in engineering from UCLA in 1965. He then joined the Peace Corps and served 2 years in Pakistan, from which he made life-long friendships with his Pak 12 group. In 1971, Bob earned a MS in Civil Engineering from CSU, Long Beach. In 1977, Bob and family moved to the Pierpont area of Ventura where Bob shared his love of fishing and the ocean with his kids. They moved to Bahrain in 1982 where he worked for the Ministry of Housing for 15 years. There Bob helped develop a new city, Madinat Hamad, in the desert and also pursued his love of duplicate bridge. Returning to the US in 1995, he and his family settled in Roseville. Those years were highlighted with annual trips to the Sierras with family and friends. Bob loved his work and it broke his heart when he cleared out his desk and retired from AECOM in May. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made in his name to Mercy Hospice, 9912 Business Park Drive, Suite 1, Sacramento, CA 95827. Memorial to be announced. Price Funeral Chapel
