Beaver, Robert Allen
FRIENDSHIP - Robert Allen Beaver, born Feb. 2, 1941, passed away peacefully in his sleep March 28, 2021. Bob was the eldest son of Herbert Cecil and Arlys Jean (Cummins) Beaver. He grew up in Knoxville, Iowa. Bob attended Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa, where he played football, basketball and baseball. It was at Simpson that Bob met the love of his life, Margo Ann Keil. Bob and Margo were married in May of 1962. Bob was a devoted and caring family man. He loved being outdoors, fishing, hunting, and riding on Castle Rock Lake in his pontoon boat. An avid sports fan, he loved to watch sports being played, especially when he could watch his grandchildren play. Next to sports, Bob's greatest passion was asking the question, "What can I do that is good for children?" and then giving back to causes that he believed in.
Bob is survived by his wife of 58 years, Margo; two sons, Kris (Shelly) Beaver of Columbus, Wis., and Kevin (Amy) Beaver of Adams; grandchildren, Zach (Samantha) Beaver of Sun Prairie, Kelsey Beaver and Jacob Caltagerone of Janesville, and Anna, Karley, Rylan and Lindey Beaver of Adams; and great-grandson, Simon Beaver.
