Robert ‘Bob’ Baillie


Bob Baillie, 82, of Harbor, passed away Dec. 21, 2011, at a local hospital.

Bob was born July 25, 1929, near Pittsburgh, Pa.,  the fourth son of Roynald and Bertha (Armhurst) Baillie.

Following high school graduation in Pittsburgh, he moved with his parents and younger brother Don to California. 

At the age of 19, he was drafted into the U.S. Army, and served honorably  in Korea and Japan.

Upon his return to California, Bob worked for G. Paoletti Co. Inc., where he was employed for 40 years.

After retiring, he moved to Brookings with Harriet, his companion of 35 years.

He was a past member of  Elks Lodge 1934.

Bob was always “handy” and enjoyed building projects with children’s  enjoyment in mind, such as tree houses, swings and train sets.

He was “Pa Pa” to Harriet’s children, Steven and Gail, and grandchildren Liz, Val, Rachel, Hannah and Dylan, and spent many hours with them.

He will be truly missed.

Cremation is under the direction of Redwood Memorial Chapel.
