On July 4, 2017 Heaven gained an amazing man. Robert (Bob) Eugene
Raypole, 75, passed away in Lake Havasu City after losing his battle
with cancer. His family members were all at his side.

Robert was born to Clayton and Betty (Steadman) Raypole in Nappanee,
Indiana Jan. 26, 1942.

He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather
and friend. He was always the go-to person if you needed answers. He
was a very smart man. Robert worked in the aerospace industry at
Boeing for 35 years as an industrial X-ray technician until he
retired in 2000.

He was passionate about many things but mostly his family, his race
car, and his love for life. Robert enjoyed traveling and meeting new
people. Fishing was a long-time hobby. He was a member of the Elks
Lodge of Buena Park, California, Cali-SS Impala Car Club, as well as
a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association and National Hot
Rod Association.

Robert is preceded in death by his parents, Clayton and Betty

He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Ida Raypole, his
daughters Jeanann Hagemann and Jody Clark, five grandchildren and
one great-grandson.

The family wishes to thank Hospice of Havasu for its compassionate
care during Robertís illness, especially Jenica who always made sure
his needs were met and Tammy and Heather for being there to answer
the many phone calls. The peace of mind that hospice gave the family
was priceless.

There will be no funeral service per Robertís request. A celebration
of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family
requests donations could be made to Hospice of Havasu in Robertís
name at 365 S. Lake Havasu Ave, LHC, AZ 86403.

Services were placed in the care of Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home.
