Robert M. Garvin Obituary
ROBERT M. GARVIN June 11, 1939 May 30, 2014 Robert (Bob) Marlan Garvin was born in Orange, Ca. on June 11, 1939. He was the only son of Marlan and Alice Garvin. Surviving is his only daughter Jenifer Oaks with her husband Scott, and his three grandchildren, Tifani, Trevor, and Tesa. Bob was 74 years old when he passed away Friday morning from natural causes. While attending and eventually graduating from Long Beach State, Bob opened his own music store called West Coast Drum Shop in Santa Ana, where he taught drum lessons, which was one of his favorite passions. Bob married in 1965 and started a career in the Aerospace industry as a machinist. In 1979, he and his family moved to Riverside, Ca. to accept a position at Rohr Industries, where he retired after 30 years of service. He was known around the plant for his good attitude, character, and sense of humor. Bob was a man of many talents and loved to share them with others. He enjoyed cooking, woodworking, and listening to jazz and the blues. He loved his family dearly and enjoyed cheering on his grandchildren at their sporting events. We look forward to being united again with him in heaven. A Memorial Service to celebrate Bob's life will be held in the Chapel at The Grove Community Church, 19900 Grove Community Drive, Riverside Ca. 92508 on Saturday, June 7th, 2014 at 10:00 am.
