Beloved husband, father, grandfather and son, Rob Boll died Sept. 22 at the age of 61.
Rob and his wife Kathy left the Gig Harbor area and moved to Independence, Kansas, last year, seeking a more peaceful life in the country. Rob instantly fell in love with the area and told his wife he’d be happy never leaving the state.
A former Key Peninsula resident, Rob was a master carpenter who thoroughly loved the process of building and worked in construction for over 40 years. Before leaving Gig Harbor he was employed at Harrison Homes, where he built many beautiful homes but, more importantly, many relationships.
He was recently employed with Koehn Construction Services in Fredonia, where he was just beginning to enjoy new friends and their shared camaraderie. He felt he found a new family there and was eager to begin his projects.
Rob leaves behind his wife Kathy; children Jessica, Robert and Anna; stepchildren David (Amy) and Alisha (Jeremy); grandchildren Logan, Haley, Natalie, Robert, Katie, JJ, Bea and Sam; new great-grandson Damien; and his mother, Patti Boll.
Rob had a tremendous love for the Lord, and he will be greatly missed by his family and friends. A memorial service was held Oct. 14, at the First Baptist Church in Independence.
