Robert “Bob” Walter Evers, 72, of Greeley, passed away on November 25, 2017 at Tru Hospice of Northern Colorado in Greeley. He was born on February 2, 1945 in Greeley, Colorado to Lambert Walter and Luella Grace (Runner) Evers.
After high school, Bob worked for Garnsey and Wheeler Rebuilders rebuilding auto components. When Garnsey and Wheeler Rebuilders closed, he began work at Kodak as a Production Operator and worked there for 23 years until retirement. After retirement from Kodak, he worked for Weld District 6 as a bus driver and monitor for special needs children. He enjoyed working with these children.
Bob was a member of the Air National Guard in Greeley and served from 1966 to 1971. Bob was also a member of the Elk Lodge 809 in Greeley. He was a member from 1968 to 1980. He was Tiler for awhile and ran the bingo games from a number of years.
During his life, Bob made some special friends. He went camping and fishing with Bill and Donna Bartlett, calling Bill “Brother Bill.” Bill started Bob working with stained glass and family and friends received many of his creations. Another great friendship was with Andrew (Andy) and Tricia (Trish) Weston and their two children, Dustine and Dakota. Bob introduced them as his nieces and nephews and they called him Uncle Bob. In later years, Bob enjoyed working out at the Greeley Recreation Center and making many new friends while working out.
Bob loved the outdoors and especially fishing and camping. Prior to his friend Kerwood Stout’s passing, the two of them enjoyed backpacking by horseback into the Rawah Wilderness Area.
