82, of Phoenix passed away on February 5, 2013. Bob retired from the Illinois State Department of Corrections in 1991 and moved to Phoenix in 1994 where he met the love of his life, Willie Dodt. He considered his stepchildren his own and introduced them as such. Bob loved God, Willie, family, and country – and don’t forget those Yankees! He was a Third Order Carmelite and worked closely with the Carmelite priests at St. Agnes Church. He is survived by Willie, 9 step-children, 21 step-grandchildren, 16 step great-grandchildren, and 1 step, great, great-grandchild; his sister Bernadette Sephton, and nephew Robert Sephton. Services will be Tuesday, February 12, 10:30 a.m. at St. Agnes Catholic Church. Visitation is one hour before the service. Arrangements are by Whitney & Murphy Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to St. Agnes St. Vincent de Paul Society, one of many organizations where Bob volunteered.
