OBIT RobertWorcester


(1-Year Anniversary)

June 18, 1922 - September 13, 2016

Cupertino, CA.

Bob leaves behind many family members and so many friends, all of whom greatly miss him on this 1 year anniversary of his passing... September 13, 2016.

“Milkshake Bob” was one of his favorite nicknames (from his famous milkshake-making days at the El Camino Hospital snack-bar), but he most cherished being called “Gramps.” And many of us family members are now remembering those days of being zoomed around the lawn in that great big, iron wheelbarrow of his... screaming in delight!

We miss you so, Gramps.
