Almost two years after losing his cherished wife, Virginia, Robert Allen Caddock went home to be with the Lord Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2005.

He had a long and successful career at Boeing and served with valor and distinction in World War II. He was passionate about many things, above all his faith, his family, and his Lord's creation.

He is survived by his five children, Barbara, Rebecca (David), Robert (Marilou), William (Lori), and Nancy (James); his nine grandchildren, Matthew (Mijanou), Brooke, Joy, Ben (Colleen), Elizabeth (Nathan), Jessie, Charlie, James (Amanda) and Bobby; and five great-grandchildren, Mia, Alea, Abigail, Christian, and Mackenzie.
