Robert Eugene Roe
Dec 1, 1939 - Aug 23, 2016
Robert Eugene Roe, 76, passed away August 23, 2016 with his family by his side. He was born December 1, 1939 in Bakersfield, CA to Robert Raymond Roe and Anna May Badgett. He was a 1958 graduate of Fresno High School, where he met the love of his life Lorriann Persch. They were married on April 14, 1962 in Fresno, CA. He later continued at Fresno State where he studied education.
He was a hardworking, devoted Father who always put his family first. An active member of the LDS church, he had a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He will be
remembered for his persistent positive attitude, which he spread to all around him. He endured trials with a smile on his face. He could often be seen taking others under his wing, running people here to there, and was loved for his generous heart.
He loved the outdoors and enjoyed camping and fishing. As an Eagle Scout he was a great contributor to the Scouting program. He was a member of the Cordova Sportsman’s Club and Northern Travelers Salesman Club, which his children and grandchildren fondly remember for its annual Easter event.
His biggest joy was brought through attending sporting events of his children and grandchildren. The truest, loyal fan, he encouraged those he watched and motivated them to reach their full potential. He is survived by his wife (Lorri), son Robert (Sarah), daughters Robin (David), Renee (Paul), and Erin (Todd), brother (Dale), and many grandchildren.
