Robert J. DIEMERT June 26, 1924 ~ April 24, 2011 Robert J. Diemert "Bob" was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Robert James Joseph Diemert and Jeannette Clara Dickson. He spent his early childhood in Fargo, North Dakota, graduating from Sacred Heart high school in 1942, where he was captain of the all-state football team. Shortly after graduation he was enlisted in WWII where he spent the next 3 years. He attended Seattle University on the GI bill, and graduated with honors. Bob went on to successfully partner a Seattle based brokerage firm, the Terry-Diemert Company, which remained in business for over 30 years. It was there that he met his loving and devoted wife of 53 years, Joan Delores Slabaugh. They were married on May 28, 1955. The couple had two daughters, Diane and Denise. Bob was an active member of his community. He was a Seafair Clown named I.O.U. in the 60's and 70's. He was also involved with the American Parkinson's Disease Association. Bob's favorite pastimes involved their family boat; salmon fishing in the Puget Sound and boating and camping in Desolation Sound B.C. with family and friends. He was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather and friend, and will be missed by all who knew him. Bob was preceded in death by his wife, Joan; and is survived by his two daughters Diane and Denise, his grandchildren Andrea, Allison, Julia, Adam, Jeffrey and Amanda, and by his great-grandson Owen. A special thanks to Bob's family, friends, neighbors and caregivers who offered so much love and support over the years. Also, to Evergreen Hospice, who's support was invaluable.
