Robert Napier

KINGMAN, Ariz. — Robert W. “Bob” Napier, 64, passed away November 7, 2012, at the Kingman Regional Medical Center. He was born November 13, 1947, in Adrian, to Dallas and Dorothea Napier. Bob was a donut-maker at a family donut shop — Hinkles Donuts — in Toledo, Ohio, prior to moving his family to Lake Havasu City in 1974. He worked for McCulloch Corporation as well as the Lake Havasu Unified School District where he retired in 2009 as a ground maintenance worker. Bob had a love of the desert and horticulture. He enjoyed studying and cultivating outdoor plants and small gardens and was very knowledgeable of desert wildlife. He also had a flair for antiques “picking,” always appreciating the stories and history behind the rare pieces he would find at yard sales. Bob, a quiet and reserved man, will be remembered by his family as having a quick wit and a heart of gold. His sense of humor was appreciated by family, friends, and strangers alike, and he was always giving from his heart to the best of his means. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. Bob is survived by his mother, Dorothea Napier, of Deerfield; daughter, Kimberly (John) Alexander, of Kingman, Ariz.; son, Charles (Bianca) Napier, of Lake Havasu City, Ariz.; brother Ron (Kaye) Napier, of Temperance; sister Sue (Benny) Rapp, of Deerfield; grandchildren.
