ObituaryShare A Memory

Robert “Bob” Hatzenbeler, 77, passed away on February 27, 2019, surrounded by his loving family. 

 
Bob loved the outdoors and fishing with his brother, Gary, who both were taught to enjoy the sport from their father, Peter. His most favorite place to be was River Rue and then from his comfy home both located at Lake Roosevelt. 
 
Bob served in the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division, complete over 200 jumps. He then worked for Snokist Growers until he retired. 
 
He met his wife and love of his life, Patti, after retirement. They married and purchased their dream home overlooking Lake Roosevelt at Deer Meadows. They always opened their home to family and friends who had the most enjoyable time with them. 
 
He was very generous and always helping those he knew, family or friends. He was especially supportive of his mother, Ruth, after she fell ill. 
 
He is survived by his mother, Ruth, brother, Gary (Bev), sister, Janice (Ray), sister, Diana (Rick), daughters, Kim, Bobbi, and step daughters, Lori, Kathy, and Debbie. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews who called him “Uncle Bob”. Robert is preceded in death by his father, Peter Hatzenbeler, his wife, Patti Hatzenbeler, and his loving dog, Scruffy. 
 
We would like to give a special thank you to his sister and brother in law, Diana and Rick Anderson, for their loving care for Bob during his illness. We also would like to thank the Hospice team for their helping hands.
