Robert Schlosser

He was 72 years old and very proud of his family and friends.

Robert “Bob” Schlosser died peacefully on September 30, 2019. He was 72 years old and very proud of his family and friends.

He was born September 3, 1947, to Henry “Hank” G. Schlosser and Eleanor C. Utsond at Saint Anne’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. He grew up in Illinois and married his high school sweetheart, Sherry D. Anderson in 1967. Some of his most memorable summers as a child were with his grandparents Henry & Olga Schlosser in Edgerton, Wisconsin, fishing and boating on the Rock River and being with the whole Schlosser family.

In his earlier years, he enjoyed riding his motorcycles, being a backyard mechanic and restoring his ’62 Corvette. Later in life he enjoyed traveling the world by visiting his son at all his different duty stations, boating, fishing, playing pool and, after retiring last February, gaming online with his grandkids. Bob received considerable pleasure watching his five grandchildren grow up.

He is survived by his wife, Sherry Schlosser, living on Vashon, and his three children Mark, Jill and Kim and five grandchildren. Along with many other relatives and friends across the United States & Poland.

A memorial service will be held on October 13, 2019, at the Vashon Island Community Church followed by a reception celebrating his life.
