Robert “Bob” Westfall died in the early morning hours of Oct. 5, 2019, at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center.
Bob was born in 1940 in Billings, Mont., to Clifford and Dorothy Westfall. He married Lana Fetters Westfall in Butte, Mont., in 1964. He and his family moved to Libby in 1971. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife and son Travis Westfall.
Bob is survived by his son, Robby Westfall, and wife, Debra, of Kalispell. Bob also is survived by his sister Shirly Baustain of Whitehall, Mont., grandson Andrew Westfall, his wife, Julia, and his son, Aiden, of Somers, Mont. Bob has two step-grandchildren, Kirk and Kristen Peterson from Arizona, with four great- grandchildren: Kirkie, Kyle, JoeJoe and Journey.
Bob will be greatly missed by his family and friends. He always loved a great story and possessed never-ending faith in the Lord to take care of us all. He always said, “I’m going to be OK, because if I am not here, I am walking with the Lord.”
He always found the good in everyone, and was helpful and kind to whomever he met. A devoted tinkerer, he loved working on cars.
We are going to miss the man we knew as “Dad Pops and Papa.”
Services will be held at the Libby Christian Church on Oct. 26 at 1 p.m.
