Robert was proceeded in death by his first wife, Louise and their 3 sons Robert, Harold (Sherri) and Steven. He is survived by his second wife Faith, daughter Sharon (Tim) granddaughter Destiny, grandson Logan. Son Darryl (Tessie) grandson Darren (Geneva) great grandson Nolan, granddaughter Ashley, great granddaughter Janay, his beloved dog Bear and bird Rooster.
Robert “Grandpa” was a man who wore many hats (let’s not forget those cowboy boots). They included Husband, Father, Uncle, Grandpa, Great Grandpa, US Army World War II Vet, two term Mayor of Downey, City Council, School Board Member, successful business owner, Master in Engineering, world traveler, pilot, and a faithful servant of the Lord. The hat that was most important, was that of being a Grandpa. Every child should be so blessed as his grandchildren were.
We will celebrate his incredible life at Florence Ave. Foursquare Church (11457 Florence Ave.) in Santa Fe Springs Friday, March 15th at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers, the family request donations to be made to Florence Ave Church in care of the Trevor Owens Foundation for Children’s Ministry.
