Robert “Bob” Thomas Gunn, age 55, of Ione, Calif., passed away, Aug. 12, 2013, in Ione. He was born in Oakland, Calif., on May 6, 1958, a son of Barbara Ann (Langler) and Bert Wallace Gunn.

Bob was raised in San Bruno, moving to Ione in 2003. From the age of 18 he worked for Pacific Bell.

He was always helping everyone; he was a giver, and just lovable Bob. He never met a stranger. He was also known as “Handy Bob;” he could fix anything. He was very talented and brilliant.
