Obituary for Robert (Bob) Joseph Anthony

Robert Joseph (Bob with one O) Anthony passed away August 26, 2019 at the age of 79 at his home in Arvada, Colorado. Bob was born in Denver, Colorado, January 19, 1940. He graduated from West High School in 1957 and enlisted in the Navy as a Seabee. He was stationed in Adak, Alaska as a telephone lineman.

In 1960, he met the love of his life, Deanna Decker through his cousin, Valarie. His black and red 1956 corvette swept her off her feet. The two wed October 1, 1961. By 1964, they had 3 children – Jim, Mike and Kathy (aka Tiger, Toad and Beanbag). They all resided in Edgewater, Colorado for 10 years and moved to Arvada, Colorado in 1973, where Bob and Deanna currently live.

Bob worked 35 years at Adolph Coors company as a maintenance supervisor. He was instrumental in starting the fire brigade and emergency response team at the brewery. Bob was highly respected and well liked throughout his career.

He was loving husband, father, poppy and grand poppy. Always willing to help with anything (cars, school projects, scouting). Bob loved to camp, and take his family on many trips and outdoor excursions. Bob was brilliant person with a quirky sense of humor. He had a passion for the metaphysical and paranormal. His grandchildren still treasure the crystals he gave them. Bob even slept under a suspended pyramid for a period of time. Even his water and beverages, were put under the pyramid for energy and purification.

Bob is survived by his wife, Deanna Anthony and children, Jim (wife - Diane) Anthony, Mike (wife -Jayme) Anthony and Kathy Pennell and 5 grandchildren, Katie, Madison, Marcus, Colin and Mason and his 5 great grandchildren, Joe, Ana, Teddy, Clara and Genaeve.
Bob’s body may be gone, but his spirit, quirkiness and deep love for his family will live on through all of us.

As a celebration of Bob’s life, his family will hold a private gathering. We appreciate everyone’s love and support. In lieu of flowers, Bob would like donations be made under his name to Arvada Food Bank where he was a volunteer, AKA Community Table, cotable.ORG.
