Robert Charles Accetturo went home to be with his Savior Jesus Christ, surrounded by family and friends, on September 16, 2018, in Edmonds, Washington, at 76 years of age.

Robert was born March 8, 1942, in Seattle, Washington, to Mike and Toni Accetturo. He graduated from Bishop Blanchet High School in 1960, and enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving three years at Sand Point Naval Base.

After his service in the military, Robert began a career in construction, which included working on the Alaska Pipeline, managing the Monroe Quarry and then transitioning into the public sector, where he held supervisory positions for Snohomish County, City of Marysville and City of Mukilteo, retiring at the age of 62.

Robert and his wife Cynthia were active in their church and in the Edmonds community for many years. He enjoyed camping, fishing with his buddies, boating throughout the San Juan Islands and traveling locally, especially to Cannon Beach with Cynthia, and abroad with his family and friends.

Robert is survived by his loving wife Cynthia; three sons, Todd (Fabiola), Mario (Melinda), John (Aimee); daughter Leah Craig (Troy) and daughter-in-law Amy; twelve grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; sisters Karina, Shelly, Lisa and brother Greg; and many loving cousins, nieces and nephews.
