Robert Francis Kress, age 77, of rural Stockton, California, passed away on Nov. 26, 2021, under the care of Hospice House.
Robert was born on April 3, 1944, in Sacramento, to parents Harold and Dorothea Kress. Robert enjoyed 30 years employment with the US Forest Service in the fire department, retiring in 1994 as the Calaveras District fire management officer of the Stanislaus National Forest.
Robert is survived by his spouse of 40 years, Mary Lombardi-Kress, and his three children, Carolynn (Dominic) Degen, of Vallecito, Kathrynn (Stephanie) Kress, of West Sacramento, and Harold (Ashraf) Kress, of Rancho Cordova. He is also survived by five grandchildren, Jason (Lisamarie) Shaw, Tammy (Shepherd) Gehrke, Roger (Amber) Tindell, Donald (Kristin) Degen, and Robert Degen (Mackenzie); and seven great-grandchildren. Also survived by stepsons Michael (Sally) Hardig, Jeffery (Cheryl) Hardig and Kenneth (Theresa) Darby, and four step-grandchildren and two step-great grandchildren.
Robert enjoyed family, friends, fishing and felines. He had an abiding faith and a deep love of the Union Church of Vallecito led by Pastor Dave Harrison and his wife, Mimi. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him for his open and honest character and love for family and God.
