A graveside service will be held for Robert "Bob" Edward Bishop, at 1 p.m., Friday, June 22, at Sunset Memorial Park in Millington with Connie Prince officiating.

Bob was born Oct. 24, 1937, to Dewey and Lucille (Bosco) Bishop in Coquille. He died peacefully at home June 17, 2018 from glioblastoma reserve an inoperable brain tumor that was diagnosed in February of this year.

Bob was a Jack-of-all-trades, he could repair anything and everything. He had a passion for rebuilding and restoring old automobiles to pristine condition. After retiring from Roseburg Forest Products, he enjoyed going on cruises. He traveled the world and almost made it to all of the seven seas. His two favorite cruises were sailing north to Alaska and south to the Panama Canal. He loved to spend an evening every once in awhile gambling. He traveled to Paris on one adventure and Amsterdam on another.

He was easy going and humble, he'd give you the shirt off his back. He loved his children with all his heart and worked hard to fulfill their wants and needs. He loved hunting, camping, and fishing. Many a crab feast were held at their home. Hopping on his Harley or four-wheeler also was one of his passions.

For 53 years he was married to his first love Beverly - this love was followed closely by his love of old cars. 

He is survived by his wife, Beverly Jean; son, David and his wife, Jonell; daughter, Mary Lou; youngest son, Robbie; and numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He also is survived by their lifelong hunting and traveling partners, Terry and Janet Pierce.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, David.

Each and everyone of us have special memories of Bob, always keep him in your heart.
