Bob Brosious Bob Brosious

(May 8, 1950 - Dec. 13, 2017)

Bob Brosious was born in Powell on May 8, 1950, to Quentin and Wilma Brosious. He died Dec. 13, 2017, in Wenatchee, Washington. He was 67.

Bob was raised in the Powell area, and graduated from Powell High School in 1968. He joined the United States Navy in 1969, serving most of his military career on the island of Guam. He was honorably discharged in 1973. After the military he settled back in Powell, and followed in his father’s footsteps, becoming an electrician. He would eventually earn his master electrician license. That would prove to be a lifelong vocation.

While in Powell he married Barbara Peters in 1976, and became Dad to Chris. Life events took him to Wenatchee, Washington. While in Wenatchee he worked in a gold mine and later took a job with the Chelan County PUD, where he worked until the time of his death. He often said: “Why retire when I love my job and the people I work with?”

Bob married Pam Nelson on May 16, 1987, and became “Pops” to Shelly and Jeff. Bob and Pam were passionate about family, antique collecting and traveling. Oh, how they loved to travel! Bob and Pam enjoyed spending time with favorite friends Ron and Kitty Ullman. Bob lost the love of his life in April of 2015, when Pam died.

Bob is survived by his mother Wilma; son Chris (Antonine) Brosious, Shelly Shepard, and Jeff (Juanita) Nelson; grandchildren Hayden and Parker Brosious, and Rayce Nelson; brothers: Dean (Marianne), Dusty (Terri) Brosious; and sister Barbra (Steve) Knopp. A large extended family survives and remembers him.

He was preceded in death by his father, and grandson Hudson Brosious.

Services for Bob are pending. Memorial donations in Bob’s name can be made to charities that assist children with autism.

    I was saddened to learn of Bob's passing. I always enjoyed the contacts with Bob while we attended Powell schools together. He was a special guy...quiet, well-mannered, and pleasant to be around. I know he will be missed by many. God bless him and all his family members.
