News Tribune, The (Tacoma, WA) - Sunday, January 6, 2008
Deceased Name: Robert Hatfield
Robert "Bobby" Hatfield Bobby went fishing at that sweet spot in Heaven on Dec. 12, 2007. He died peacefully at home. Bob was born in Cottage Grove, OR on Oct. 6, 1948 to Pauline and Lewis Hatfield. Bobby grew up and went to school in Auburn, WA. Bob always had a story to tell. The last story he told us was how he was bamboozled into rattlesnake hunting by some friends in Arizona. The reason for the hunt was jokingly withheld from him until he was already in the bush (snakes gave Dad the heebee geebees). So we laughed through the entire story. He could entertain people for hours. All his life Bob was well-known for his easy and outgoing personality. He could lift the spirit of someone in the dumps, aid a fellow worker, play handyman for his two best girls, play poker with his grandson, recount a humorous story, or just make up an anecdote. He was a frequent camper, fisher, and outdoorsman. He could easily shed a tear while listening to an Andrea Bocelli composition, or immersing himself in the latest Harry Potter book. He could walk through the woods and point out birds, mushrooms, and other joys of the forest. Bob loved his workshop, woodworking, painting, and being around people. The last decade of his life was the happiest, and was spent with the love of his life, Patty Colville. Bobby died fulfilled and contented, knowing he was respected and greatly loved. He is survived by his longtime companion Patty Colville, his children Rob Hatfield, Christina Hatfield, and Ricci Baker, sisters Donna Ross and Lewan Hatfield, and grandchildren Kelly, Jesse, Dallas, Austin, and Kayle. A celebration of his life will be held at the Puyallup Eagles Club on Jan. 10, 2008 at 1:00pm.
