Royce “Bob” R Gale died peacefully in his home on September 15, 2019 in the arms of his loving wife, Phyllis. Bob was born on January 3, 1932 in Des Moines, Iowa at his family’s home on the kitchen table.
As a young man he enjoyed athletics, most importantly diving at Lincoln High School and went on to serve our country in the Korean War. In 1956, he began his career under the name of Spencer and Anderson Upholstery and took pride in serving hundreds of customers with his solid, quality workmanship. He lived a life filled with the joys of bowling, golf, healthy food, watching baseball, taking walks, and enjoying a beer on the deck at the end of the day. But his greatest joys were his grandchildren, family, and friends. We are all blessed to be on the receiving end of his kindness, warmth, compassion, and love.
He is preceded in death by his brother Dick; sister-in-law Marlene; and brother Roger. He is survived by his wife Phyllis; sisters Janet and Sonia; daughter Syd; sons John, Daniel, and David (Koenig); 8 grandchildren; and 3 great-grandchildren.
A visitation will be held on Friday September 20, 2019 at Faith Lutheran Church 10395 University Ave, Clive, Iowa from 1:00-2:00PM. with a service to follow at 2:00 P.M.
