Obituary

Robert “Bob” Wolfenbarger

March 27, 1952 – May 16, 2020

Bob Wolfenbarger left us too soon following two and a half years in a valiant battle against
pancreatic cancer. Preceding him in death are his parents Raymond and Doris Wolfenbarger
and an infant brother, Johnny. He leaves behind his wife of 46 years Nancy (Ulm) sons Ryan
(Sandra) Richard (Kendra) granddaughters Jayde, Lyndi, and another granddaughter due this
fall that he had greatly looked forward to meeting. He is survived by his sisters Linda, Patti,
Kathy, and Karen.

Bob was a born and raised Lebanon native, a member of the Lebanon High School class of
1970. Following graduation he spent two summers working on a Fire Suppression Crew out of
Redmond, Oregon then on to Central Oregon Community College with an emphasis on studying
forestry. In the years that followed he worked for the US Forest Service in Sweet Home.

Aviation was a lifelong passion and he juggled hours of flight training during his off hours with
the USFS. He went on to manage the Lebanon Municipal Airport for two years then was elated
to eventually become the pilot for Colson/Colson (Holiday Management) retirement home
builders. Bob worked 23 years for them developing a deeply valued family-like relationship. The
privilege of traveling around much of the globe were some of his fondest and richest memories.

In 2005 Bob and his son Ryan developed Wolfco Timber Services, LLC. This venture provided a
platform where he could pass his love and knowledge of forestry and logging along to his sons.

Bob wore many hats on any given day. He would land the plane in the morning and by
mid-afternoon be out harvesting timber. He found great pleasure in the outdoors and always
appreciated nature whether he was flying, logging, managing timber or hunting, It was with
great joy when during these times he could share each of these activities with his family and
friends.
A celebration of life for Bob will take place once restrictive gatherings are again allowed.

I have a lot of really great memories of Bob,... he was a really good person! The hours of flying with Bob in his first little plane were so exciting! Bob would go over the preflight with me, then he would say, “where do you want to go”,.... several times we flew into the mountains and he would have me look for elk, or opens to scout! I will never forgot the hunting trips back in the 70’s and 80’s and all the great trophies that Bob took over the years. Bob was a very skilled hunter! I always thought Bob enjoyed scouting and preparing for opening days as much or more that the actual hunt. I also really enjoyed logging with Bob in the 1990’s, and watching High School football in the late 90’s, when his son Ryan was a star lineman. Bob was just a lot of fun to be around. Bob really loved his family and was very proud of them all,... I’m going to really miss Bob,.....

Bob was genuinely one of the kindest, most humble, and one of the hardest working men I had the pleasure of knowing! Please accept my condolences. Mike Murphy Eugene Oregon
