Robert “Bob” Workman

Robert “Bob” Workman, 87, went to be with the Lord July 25, 2019. He was born Aug. 8, 1931, in Tacoma, Wash.

Bob attended Mossyrock High School before joining the United States Navy and serving as signalman for four years. In 1955, he married Barbara Thayer and together they raised three children. Bob worked for Boeing and various other jobs before starting Workman Contracting with his son, Jerald. He loved his family and spending time with them. Bob supported his kids and grandkids in all their various activities. He was an avid Washington Huskies fan and the world would come to a halt when a game came on. Bob would share his knowledge and love of Husky sports to anyone willing to listen. He also enjoyed camping and horseback riding in the mountains.

Bob is lovingly remembered by his wife of 63 years, Barbara; three children, Sheryl (Gordon) Coleman, Jerald (Johanna) Workman, both of Mossyrock and Denise (Larry) Solverson of Spokane; 12 grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister, Wanda Russell of Moses Lake; and brother, Jim Workman of Arizona.  

A celebration of Bob’s life will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 3, 2019, at Mossyrock Assembly of God, where he attended. A reception will follow.
