Robert Graydon “Bob” Etter passed away peacefully on Feb. 11, 2019,
at the age of 98. Born in Leslie, Arkansas, on July 7, 1920, his
family moved around the South and Midwest in search of work until
settling in Ohio in the late 1930’s.

After graduating high school, he attended Oberlin College before
joining the Army in 1941. He went to flight school and developed a
lifelong passion for flying. After leaving the Army in 1946, he
joined the Air National Guard where he remained until 1975 and
retired as a Brigadier General.

His passion for music was well known and the “General” could often be
found at the Moose Lodge on Friday nights, listening to his favorite
bands. On Sundays he was a regular at the Palace where, along with
friends, he listened to Jerry play the honky-tonk piano.

All who knew “Mr. Lucky” are invited to a Celebration of Life on May
4 from 1-4 p.m., at the Moose Lodge in Prescott Valley. Join his many
friends for music and an opportunity to share remembrances.
