Robert “Bob” Lee Trout, age 92, passed away Sept. 26, 2013, in Sedro-Woolley, Washington, of a lung infection.
He was born to Helen and Howard Trout on Oct. 18, 1920, in Pontiac, Michigan.
Bob moved to Marion, Ind., in 1960 and worked for General Motors until he retired in 1976 after 34 years of service.
Prior to working at General Motors, Bob served his country in the Navy as an Aviation Machinist Mate Second Class during WW II. Bob’s time in the Navy gave him a love for world travel and other cultures. He loved sharing his many photo albums that journal his travels abroad. He was never short on stories and always eager to show the foreign currency collection he had accumulated.
In addition to his love for travel, early in life Bob loved to ride his motorcycles, spend time hunting, and was a very accomplished golfer.
For his retirement, he relocated to Largo, Fla. Bob was an avid fisherman and loved spending time on the Pier in Indian Rocks Beach or dancing at the supper club with his friends at Villa Capri.
He is survived by his two sons, Lewis Robert Trout and his wife, Susan, and Kevin Bex Trout and his wife, Deborah; grandchildren, Adam Trout and his wife, Aimee, and Cody, Bex, David and Rachel Trout; and great-grandchildren, Savanah and Caleb.
Bob lived a long, full life; he was a loving, supportive friend, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He will be missed and remembered fondly by the many people he touched.
An Interment Ceremony will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013, at Sylvan Abbey, Clearwater, Fla. Share your memories of Bob and sign the online guest register at www.lemleychapel.com.
