Robert Andrew “Bob” Coe
August 26, 1929 ~ June 7, 2014
Bob passed in the comfort of home and presence of his loved ones. He was born in Seattle, WA to his father, Earl Damon Coe, and his mother, Margaret (Currie) Coe, and lived his whole life in Washington state. As he was growing up in Seattle, the family enjoyed many camping, hunting, and fishing trips. In his high school years, Bob was great at track and pole vaulting, and he also enjoyed playing baseball. He excelled when he joined a shooting club. Bob was such a good shot that he was not allowed to compete with kids his own age. He worked with his Dad in their auto body repair shop for many years. He later took a job with Allstate Insurance as an insurance causality adjuster. Bob traveled to many disaster areas all over the country; he loved to help people. He was always amazed at people’s hospitality after they had lost everything. Bob was an avid Harley rider and painted many beautiful designs on motorcycles for friends. He enjoyed being a flagger at local motocross races. Bob never knew a stranger. He was active in the Elks Club for many years. After retirement, he still enjoyed camping, fishing and RV-ing across the country. His life was well lived!
Bob is survived by his loving wife, Sharon; daughter, Susan Coe; three grandchildren; and four step-children. He was predeceased by his parents; two brothers; and his beloved Yorkie, “Ki Ki”. Bob will be remembered by his beautiful and ever-present smile and perfectly-timed jokes.
I want to thank all those at Central Washington Hospital Home Care and Hospice, Aging and Adult Care, and also the Knights of Columbus, as well as his numerous family members and dear friends. What a wonderful job they did to help keep Bob comfortable as he passed from this world.
This fall, family and friends will have a Memorial Service at one of Bob’s most beloved camp trails. May God hold and bless him.
