Obituary of Dr. Robert "Bob" Larrabee
Bob was born on January 4, 1945 in Texarcana, Arkansas to Clyde and Edith Larrabee. He graduated from Bellingham High School in 1962. After his honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy in 1973, Bob received his BS from WWU and went on to continue his education at California School of Podiatric Medicine, where he received his Doctorate of Podiatry in 1981.
A lover of the outdoors, Bob spent his summers with family camping and fishing, with many fond memories made at Caples Lake Resort and Glacier National Park. He also enjoyed .22 caliber match shooting, going to air shows, and spending time with his dogs, goats, and donkeys. Bob had a great sense of humor and enjoyed teasing people. His keen knowledge, wit, ambition, and his compassion for animals will be missed.
Survivors include his daughter, Patricia (John) Whitlock; step-sons, Jeff (Kandi) Brinson-Larrabee, Kevin Brinson, and Don (Jen) Brinson; seven grandchildren; and 2 great-grandchildren.
He is predeceased by his mother, Edith; and grandmother, Ruth E. Terry.
