Robert L. Mackey was born Jan. 25, 1926, and died Dec. 19, 2007, at home with loved ones.

Bob joined the Smith River logging community in 1950. His family is very proud of his service during World War II in the U.S. Navy. Upon retirement, he became an avid gardener and wine maker. He loved being a part of the Del Norte community and he cherished the ribbons he received from the County Fair each year.

Over the years, Bob was blessed with many long-standing friendships, most notably, the andquot;Gangandquot; at The Bank and his breakfast pals at Alta's

Burger Bar.

He is survived by his three children, Mark MacKey, Adrianne Willard and Roberta Mackey Robin, along with five grandchildren.

An andquot;Irish wakeandquot; memorial will be held at The Bank in Smith River on Sunday, Jan. 6, at 3 p.m. All are welcome.

Arrangements are under the direction of Wier's Mortuary Chapel of Crescent City.
