Robert Allen Radabah, 62, Husband, Father, Grandpa, Best Friend to all. A lover of life adventures and all those he knew. He was the sort of man we could only hope to be like. He brought joy and laughter to all he knew and he was taken too soon. We still had so much to learn from him. Robert “Bob” passed away suddenly and unexpectedly to the dismay of his family.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert S. Radabah and Virginia Miller, and his siblings Roger Radabah and Ada Volkman.
He is survived by the love of his life and best friend Michelle “Mikki” Radabah, his siblings Victor Volkman, Dave Volkman, Rocky Radabah, Chip Radabah and Tammy Renn. and his children, who were his world, Travis Hensley, Bobby Radabah, Serina, Amber Radabah and Ashlee Armstrong; along with a whole slew of grandchildren who were his very breath as well as many nieces and nephews that brought him joy. Every one of us miss him furiously and will forever have a void in our hearts where he belongs.
Born December 7, 1957, in Fairbanks, Alaska, he sacrificed his schooling to care for his younger siblings, a role he would develop and perfect with his own children. Though lacking a formal education, Bob was the consummate handyman, a true jack of all trades who made sure our homes, vehicles and lives were in order. None of us would have made it in life without his selfless support, vigor for life and constant jokes. In addition to this pure servant’s heart, Bob was a warm and affable man, who loved nothing more than to make people laugh. Whether by a cheesy joke, a silly song, a goofy dance, he could masterfully bring a smile to the sternest face. We love you Pop of the Pa (aka) ‘the bull’ and we can’t wait to see your beautiful face again.
A Memorial will be held for the most wonderful man ever at 542 Willow Glen Drive at 6:00pm, Friday June 12. Feel free to bring a dish.
