Robert ‘Bob’ Wilkie Iddins: July 2, 1940 – June 7, 2017

Iddins

Robert “Bob” Iddins peacefully went to be with our lord June 7, following a short illness. A loving family man and outdoorsman, Grandpa Bob cherished and is survived by his loving wife Penny of 58 years; his two sons Jimmy and Bobby and their wives Katie and Kathy; his five grandchildren, Erin, Mark, Ben, Alex and Kelsey; and his six great-grandchildren, Brooklynn, Jackson, Kaylin, Bennett, Alexis and Xander.

Bob was born and raised in Seattle until his early teenage years, where he moved to Whidbey Island and graduated from Langley high School in 1958. He married his wife Penny that same year, made their home and raised their two sons on South Whidbey Island.

Bob was a successful business man, making a career as bank manager of the Clinton branch of Whidbey Island Bank until 1984, where he and Penny moved to Alaska to continue his banking career until 2003, when Bob retired.

Bob was also an active member of the South Whidbey Kiwanis club and a volunteer fireman for more than 40 years on Whidbey Island and Craig Alaska. He and Penny made their home in Craig, Alaska, until Nov. 2016, when they re-located back to South Whidbey.

Bob was also an avid outdoorsman, where he enjoyed hunting and fishing. In his free time, Bob spent much of his time commercial salmon fishing, sports fishing and hunting in the great outdoors of Alaska.

In his retirement years, he and Penny spent most of the winter months enjoying traveling the U.S. in their motorhome and the warm sunny climate of Yuma, Arizona.

Grandpa “Bob” was loved and cherished by his family and will be sorely missed.

There will be no services at Bob’s request. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the South Whidbey Island Volunteer Fire Department or the Craig Alaska Volunteer Fire Department.
