Jan. 31, 1915 — Jan. 25, 2013

Robert Samuel Key of Placerville, Calif., went to be with the Lord Jan. 25, 2013, at his nursing home in Galt, Calif. He was born in Oregon County, Mo., on Jan. 31, 1915, and grew up in Alton, Mo. He married Suzanne McFry in 1941.

Robert began breeding dairy cows at the age of 18 and developed a grade “A” dairy production. He served during World War II in North Africa, Italy and Japan. In the early ’60s he moved to Oregon and worked as a mill worker until retirement. He was widowed in 1975. He married Betty Thompson in 1976. They lived in Oregon and California, most recently in Placerville.

Robert was known for his love of people and his story telling — most likely about his misdeeds growing up in Alton. He never lost his love for Herefords or his farm in Alton. He was a member of The Church of the Foothills in Cameron Park, Calif., where he served as a greeter into his 90s. His family remembers him for his kindness, sense of humor, storytelling and love of his grandchildren.

Bob was preceded in death by his wife, Betty. He is survived by his step-son, Dan Thompson and his wife, Faith of Stockton, Calif.; step-daughter, Rebecca Cooke and her husband, Mark of Elk Grove, Calif.; his grandchildren, Andrew Thompson and his wife, Susannah, Devenie Cooke, Philip Thompson and Tamara Cooke; and great-granddaughter, Penny Thompson.

There will be a viewing at Herberger’s Elk Grove Funeral Chapel from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013. The funeral service will follow at 2 p.m. Interment will be at the VA Cemetery in Dixon, Calif. In Lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the C.S. Lewis Foundation for the C.S. Lewis College, P.O. Box 8008, Redlands, CA 92375.
