Robert John Babst

March 24, 1925 ~ October 2, 2013

Robert John Babst was born March 24, 1925 to the parents of Arthur Thomas and Mary Ellen (Horey) Babst. He attended Wenatchee High School graduating in 1943. After high school, he proudly served in the Army from 1943 to 1946, during WWII, as a Staff Sergeant, in charge of an Ordinance Automotive Repair Shop. He was stationed in Bougainville. Robert met Shirley Hagstrom, the love of his life, in Wenatchee. They were married for 65 years, residing in Wenatchee, where they lived and raised their family. Robert began working for the Great Northern Railroad while attending high school. After completing his service with the Army, he went back to work for the railroad until 1953. He then began working for Foremost Dairy until 1981. Robert was an accomplished ice-skater, electrician, carpenter and painter. He was a wonderful, loving and devoted husband, dad, grandfather, and great-grandfather. We will miss his great sense of humor and sharp wittiness.

We love you; you will be greatly missed”

Robert is survived by his wife, Shirley Babst; twelve children, Tom (Karen); Gary (Jackie); Dick (Cindy); Ron (Karen); Cheryl (Mitch) Fletcher; John (Debbie); Bill; Brad (Sharon); Carolyn (Scott) Asher; Christine (Dan) Danielson; Brian; Coyet (Marvin) Breshears; and was blessed with 21 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents; three brothers; four sisters; son, Gregory; and grandson, Ryan.

A Celebration of Robert’s life will be held at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Wenatchee at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 10, 2013. Rosary will be recited on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. at St. Joseph Chapel in Wenatchee.
