Bobbie (Bob) Dale Ashlock, 68, of Keizer went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 after a two week battle with pneumonia.
Bob was born May 30, 1953 to William and Opal Ashlock in Galena, Kan. After high school, Bob joined the United States Army on June 10, 1970.
In the year 1971, Bob met Lesie and they were married five months later on November 12th. They then went on to have three daughters, Brandy, Sara, and Delcina.
Bob’s first job in the military was a generator mechanic, but he quickly found a love for cooking. After 16-years in the Army, Bob medically retired as Staff Sergeant. After his honorable discharge, Bob went on to work for the Oregon Department of Corrections until age 60, when he officially retired.
Bob was a force of nature, determined to provide for his family. He always went above and beyond to show his love for them. His family meant more to him than anything in the world, something he mentioned often. His love for his family was selfless and unconditional.
Bob had a very extensive list of hobbies that he enjoyed. He played the guitar, assembled model cars, listened to music, loved his adult coloring, gardening, cooking, entertaining friends, and playing with his seven grandkids. Bob was also a very active and dedicated member of his church. If Bob was not home, you would often find him camping or fishing with Lesie, family, and friends.
Anyone who knew Bob, knew that he was the most loyal and loving father, friend, and husband. Bob was predeceased by his parents; and siblings, Loretta, Wilma, Kate, and Billy Lee. He is survived by his wife, Lesie; his three daughters, Brandy (Cole), Sara (Kris), and Delcina (Alex); his grandkids, Amber, Mackenzie, Nicky, Jackson, Amelia, Eli, and Brody; and his siblings, Roberta, Michael, Linda, and Jackie.
A celebration of life for Bob will be held Saturday, Oct. 2, at 2 p.m. at Countryside Christian Church, 5775 McLeod Ln N, Keizer, OR 97303.
