Robert Lobaugh

June 11, 1941 — April 20, 2013

Robert Harry “Bob” Lobaugh, of Placerville, Calif., passed away on April 20, 2013, at the age of 71. He was born on June 11, 1941, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, to Burch and Jennie Lobaugh. He is survived by his wife, Karen Lobaugh. He and Karen were together for more than 57 years and were married on Aug. 16, 1958.

Bob loved the outdoors, boating, skiing, camping and fishing and was an avid golfer and member of Cold Springs MOB (Men of Brilliance). He was very entertaining with musical instruments and he very rarely lost at a game of pool. He was a member of the Elks since 1969. One of his many legacies will be his words of wisdom, “Prudence dictates a safer procedure,” and “Know when you don’t know.”

Bob is also survived by his two sisters, Vivian Kalal and Beverly Teeples, both of Hermiston, Ore.; his son and daughter-in-law, Rick and Debbie Lobaugh of Catheys Valley, Calif.; and his daughter and son-in-law, Ginger and Al SoRelle of Hubbard, Texas. He had six grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.

Memorial services will be private.
