Oct 30, 2017

Robert Johnston Shier, 64, passed away unexpectedly on Oct. 12, 2017. He was born Feb. 17, 1953, in Seattle and has been a resident in Edmonds for 24 years.

Robert is survived by his wife of 28 years, Christine, daughters Sara and Angela, sisters Margo (Ron) Otto, Janet (Jim) Morford, brother Allan (Jan) Shier and nephews and nieces.

Bob served in the Army from 1972 to 1979, stationed in Heidelberg, Germany, where his love of travel developed while visiting 28 countries. After leaving the Army, Bob finished his degree in construction management. He has been an active member in the local 131 Carpenters Union since 1991, most recently working with Goebel Fixtures for the past seven years, traveling to many cities and supervising the installation of fixtures in high-end stores.

Bob enjoyed spending time with his wife and daughters, getting projects done around the house, traveling, taking pictures and spending time outdoors.

Bob has been our solid rock, a wonderful father and loving husband. It's with great sorrow and shock; we will miss him and his humor forevermore.

A celebration of Bob's life will be held noon Sunday, Nov. 5, at Evergreen-Washelli, Seattle.
