Robert (Bob) Walsh, the best Grandpa, Father, Husband, and friend passed away on April 13, 2021 in Rupert Idaho.
Bob is survived by his loving wife Barbara of 53 years; his children, Michael Walsh (Rupert, Idaho), Michelle (John) Weeks, Mitch (Lisa)Walsh, his three grandsons Michael (Brittany) Walsh Omaha, NB, Tyler Weeks Portland, Oregon and Talan Weeks Boise, Idaho; one great-granddaughter Maylynn Walsh Omaha, Nebraska and his beloved dogs Allie and Annie.
Bob was born in Chicago, Illinois to Walter (Ray) and Alice Walsh in June 1946. The family moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota where Bob was raised with his sister Judy and where he met the love of his life Barb. As Bob’s career in telecommunications progressed, they moved to Wyoming and then to Idaho. In retirement Bob and Barb adventured in their 5th wheel, meeting many great friends until Bob’s health declined with and they settled in Rupert.
Our dad and grandpa was always busy building, fixing and even inventing things. His family was the most important thing to him, we were always on an adventure camping, fishing, boating, Dutch oven cooking making great memories. You could always find Bob helping a friend or neighbor mowing their lawn, building a porch, or working on their cars.
Bob wished to have his earthly body cremated and never liked being the center of attention, per his wishes there will not be a public service.
Our family would like to express our tremendous gratitude to all the staff at Minidoka Memorial Hospital as well as Dr. Kevin Owens and his staff. Our parents have been treated like family there for years. They always kept Root beer on hand special for dad and in the last days of his life offered him anything he wanted as well as comforting all of us.
