Robert F Blakley passed away on January 24, 2022 from esophageal cancer surrounded by his family. Bob or Stubby as those who loved him called him was born in Ogden on February 29, 1948 to Lyle Blakley and Verla Walker Blakley. He attended Weber County Schools and Weber State University.
Bob married the love of his life, Julie Ann Isaacs, on January 6, 1967. They were married for 55 wonderful years. They have 3 amazing daughters; Bridget (Tony) Mora, Sherry (Mike) Jones, Stacey (Brian) Lemmons, 8 beautiful grandchildren – Alex, Victor, Kylie, Tyler, Shaylee, Colten, Bobbie & Conner, and 4 brave great-grandchildren – McKenzie , Arrielle, Zoey & Rowan who adore and love their nana and their dad very much.
He savored every minute spent with them. He is also survived by two brothers Mark & Billy and a sister, Margaret.
Bob proudly served in the US Marine Corps. He retired from Hill Air Force Base and owned Bob’s trophies and awards.
Bob loved his family more than anything, he loved the outdoors and fishing. He served others wholeheartedly and was always there to lend a hand, a tool, or a fishing rod. Bob and Julie both enjoyed participating in Clinton Days Dutch cooking, community service and charity events.
Uncle Bob loved his nephews and nieces. He enjoyed spending time with the whole family at Cub River, hunting, fishing and family parties.
He was predeceased by his parents, a brother and 2 sisters.
To all my grandchildren, “I’m watching you.”
Our Father above water hallowed be their name.
Your rain will come. Your rivers flow on earth
as they do in heaven.
Give us today our daily fish and
forgive our over limit.
As we forgive those who set the line.
Lead us not into troubled waters.
Deliver us from the end of the season.
For yours is the river, the ocean and the glory.
Forever and ever. Amen.
