Robert Lee Wynn, 72

Robert Lee (Bob) Wynn was born March 10, 1947 in Ottumwa, Iowa and entered into eternal rest on Oct. 30, 2019 at his home in Globe surrounded by his loving family.

Bob retired from the City of Globe on Dec. 10, 2008 and continued to live in the house he built until the time of his passing. He was an active member of the Pentecostals of Globe Church and had been baptized in the Name of Jesus on March 25, 2001.

His giving spirit and friendship touched so many lives throughout his life.  He helped others all he could. If you knew him, there is no doubt that he remodeled, rebuilt or restored something for you -- whether it was a car, a house, or a belief that there are still good people in the world. Do not dwell on his death as this is just one single moment in time. Remember him for the lessons he lived, the encouragement he gave and the love he shared. Remember him for how he touched your life, how he gave of himself, and how his legacy will continue through you.
