With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Robert (Bob) Brongil, 65, who was a long-time resident of West Seattle. He was a beloved father, brother, husband, grandfather, and friend. Bob had an unfortunate battle with cancer that he eventually succumbed to on January 30, 2021. He fought every step of the way because he knew how important he was to his family and friends who loved him dearly.
Bob was raised on Mercer Island, Washington to Frank and Ramona Brongil. He attended Mercer Island High School and continued his schooling at the University of Puget Sound where he earned his Business Degree. After that, he started his own successful business for 30 years. Bob loved to travel, especially snowbirding in Mexico. He was born and raised to a strong Catholic family who was grounded in their faith and he continued that tradition by being an usher at Our Lady of Guadalupe.
He leaves behind his wife Judith Brongil, daughters McKenzie Walsh (Chris Walsh) and Brita Brongil (Shaq Blair), grandsons Kelton and Casen, granddaughters Evi and Kapri, sister Kathy Stevens (Jeremy and Lindsey), and brother Gary Brongil (Marilyn North) and several other loving family members and friends.
A funeral mass will be celebrated privately at Our Lady of Guadalupe. In lieu of flowers, remembrances in Bob’s name may be made to Our Lady of Guadalupe in West Seattle.
A celebration of life will be held at a future date to honor Bob.
We will all miss you Bob!
Dear Lord please open the gates to heaven and welcome Bob and allow him a place in heaven. Allow him the opportunity to watch over those who loved him and supported him in life. We ask you for your strength and guidance to help us learn to cope with this lose, and help lift us up and show us how to learn and become better and stronger in your name. Amen.
