Robert “Bob” L. O’Connor Surrounded by his beloved family, Bob departed our warm embraces on May 4th, 2011 at the age of 64. Survived by his “bride” and “soul mate,” Linda, of 31 years. They enjoyed boating around the Puget Sound with their three children who will miss him terribly: Carmen (Nathaniel), Robert (Jamie), and John (Holly), and 7 grandchildren, Jordan, Katie, Quinn, Jaylee, Alissa, Collin and Jakoda. Also survived by his sister Sandra (Tom) and brother Michael, sister in-law Sandy, brother in-law Tom (Heidi), several nieces and nephews, dear loving friends, and his “Precious” puppy that brought him a lot of laughter in his final days. Bob invested over 25 years training the independent automotive industry and had an undying passion for helping owners manage their businesses, always with their best interests at heart. He worked tireless hours alongside of Linda and touched many, many people with his hearty laugh and his knack for telling it like it is. He spent his final days at home looking out onto the lake that he loved so much with his partner, first mate, and the love of his life every moment giving him the best care that love can give. A warm thank you to Multi-Care Home Hospice, his nurse Cathy, and Chaplain Jana.
