In Memory of: Robert Joseph Cornell

Robert "Bob" Joseph Cornell, 70, passed away Monday, Aug. 16, 2010, at his home in Dolan Springs. He was born July 10, 1940, in Walla Walla, Wash.

Bob is survived by his wife of 50 years, Lori; mom, Barbara; sister, Fay; three children, Randy, Pat and April; six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

After serving eight years in the United States Army Reserves, Bob went on to become a transmission specialist. His last place of employment was Kermit's Transmission in Kingman where he worked on just about every car in the Kingman area.

For the last 16 years, Bob and his wife Lori have resided in Dolan Springs where the two of them personally built their retirement home.

Bob loved working on his property with Lori and enjoyed taking her out to eat at the local VFW. They rang in many New Year's at the VFW where they would visit with friends and dance the night away.

Although he was considered a quiet man, Bob had the biggest heart and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

A celebration of Bob's life will be held at 3 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 20, at the VFW in Dolan Springs.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Bob's name to the local VFW or DAV chapters.
