Obituary for Robert "Bob" Emery Andrew

Born in Cook, Nebraska, he was the youngest of six children who grew up in Holyoke, Colorado. Preceded in death by his parents and his siblings.
He served in World War II as a Merchant Marine from 1944-1946 and travelled the world before marrying Janet Irene Killham on March 26, 1948 in Brighton, Colorado to begin their 70+ years of marriage. From Sydney, Nebraska, they moved their two young daughters (Rea J Andrew & Lyn R Rodgers) to Portland, Oregon where their family grew to include six grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren to whom he was devoted and of whom he was immensely proud.
He was an active and generous community member: a 33rd Degree Mason-Shriner, serving in all offices of the Blue Lodge including Senior Warden, a long-time member of the Presbyterian Church, and the moderator of the Men’s Forum of Newberg/Dundee for ten years. He delivered Meals on Wheels for 25 years, ran a paper and cardboard collection route to support Fish for ten years, and gave blood all his adult life (over 40 gallons) to receive a national honor in 2016 for 358 pints of donated blood.
He is missed but held close in the hearts and memories of those who knew him and loved him. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to an Alzheimer’s organization or the American Red Cross. Contact us: FamilyOfBobAndrew@gmail.com
A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 10 a.m. at Macy and Son Funeral Directors, 135 NE Evans St, McMinnville, Oregon.
