Musician and Comedian will be Dearly Missed
Robert (Rob) J. Downer, born January 2, 1955 in Oakland, CA and grew up in Shoreline, WA., passed away after a short courageous battle with cancer on December 26, 2011. Rob loved playing his drums, guitar and singing with several different bands. Rob loved telling jokes and was a great impersonator of John Wayne, Rodney Dangerfield and Johnny Carson just to mention a few. Rob was a perfectionist and loved reading. He is survived by his partner Lisa of 30 years, who was by his side continuously. He also is survived by his father Jim, sister Cheryl and brother Tom.
There will be a memorial at a later time.
Remembrances can be made in Rob's name to Evergreen Hospice of Kirkland, WA.
Looking into the portals of eternity
Looking into the portals of eternity teaches that the brotherhood of man is inspired by God's word; Then all prejudice of race vanishes away.
Just as the Wave Cannot Exist
Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me. It is an uncomfortable doctrine which the true ethics whisper into my ear. You are happy, they say; therefore you are called upon to give much.
