Robert Ross Nohl

Died July 13, 2012
Robert Ross Nohl, 70, passed away peacefully on July 13th after a valiant battle with cancer.
Bob was born in West Seattle to Robert G. and Dorothy Nohl on May 20, 1942. He was a proud graduate in the West Seattle High School class of 1960. He then served in the US Army in Taiwan. Bob loved being a commercial ﬁsherman from Alaska to San Francisco before he started a landscape business in the Seattle area.
In his heart, Bob was always a farmer. Bob and his wife Colleen loved to travel and relished in the culture and diversity they discovered. Bob loved people and loved to talk.
He had a gift that made one feel as if they were the only person in the world. He made everyone feel welcome. Bob was happiest when he was entertaining friends with his excellent cooking in his gourmet kitchen. He always loved a party. Building an off-the-grid home in Port Townsend was his passion for the last 15 years.
He died peacefully, surrounded by family and friends. Bob had many friends because he was such a welcoming, kind, and loving man. He will be missed by all who knew him. People far and wide will miss his smile, sense of humor and his friendly, easy-going manner.
A memorial will be held July 29, 2012, at the West Seattle Golf Course, 1:00 – 4:00.
In lieu of ﬂowers, please make donations in Bob’s name to the West Seattle Food Bank.
