Robert W. Edmonds was born May 12, 1934, in Los Angeles, and passed away on May 31, 2013, in Medford, Ore.

“Bob,” as he was referred to by friends and family, was a resident of Southern California, where he worked well over 30 years as an engineer for jet propulsion until 2000, when he and his wife Shirley decided to head north and moved to Del Norte County. 

A private man, Bob enjoyed leisure activities such as fishing, electronics, and building and flying model airplanes. He was also a longtime member of the Northside Baptist Church. 

Bob is survived by his wife Shirley, sister Marilyn Grinwald, son James R. Edmonds and three grandchildren. 

A memorial service officiated by Pastor Ed Fleshman will be held at Salmon Harbor RV Park on June 22, 2013, at 10 a.m. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to Northside Baptist Church, Crescent City, in memory of Bob.
