Robert W. "Rob" Dees Jr. Obituary
Robert W. Dees, Jr.
Rob Dees of San Pedro passed away November 3, 2011 at his mother's house in Torrance from complications of colon cancer. Rob was born in Greenville, Alabama and moved with his family to the Hollywood Riviera section of Torrance in 1956. He graduated from South High in 1966 and Troy (Alabama) State University in 1974. Rob's lifelong interests included surf and car culture and music-especially live music. He was a regular at Redondo Beach's Sweetwater nightclub and the beach at Sacred Cove in the 70s and 80s. Rob loved Opel automobiles, his timeshare in Mexico, Gram and Emmy Lou, Auburn football and, above all, a good time. Opinionated, articulate and witty, he could turn the answer to a yes or no question into a 20 minute story. Rob described himself in his last months as looking like a size medium elephant in an XXL elephant suit. In June, dozens of his friends from around the world joined him at a party thrown by Mike Cekalovich and Debbie Klett. Rob is survived by his mother Edith and sister Edie and was predeceased by his father, Lt. Col. (retired) Robert W. Dees. The family sincerely thanks Rob's devoted friends who supported him during his illness. Also his hospice nurse Eileen Miller and caregivers April and Sonia, who bestowed many kind favors on our curmudgeon. He was one of a kind and left a huge hole in our hearts.
