Robert "Bob" Avery

October 28, 1936 — July 29, 2023

Bob was born on October 28, 1936 in Seattle, WA to Lloyd and Mabel Avery. He went to heaven on July 29, 2023. A veteran of the US Air Force, Bob served the Seattle Police Department for over 27 years, a majority of that he served as a Seattle Police Harbor Patrol Officer and diver. He was a talented golfer and bowler, receiving a 300 PBA ring. He retired to Birch Bay, WA and loved watching the ocean and being surrounded by family and friends. He embraced everyone who came to the beach house and considered them family. Bob is survived by his wife of 38 years, Darla Avery; brother, Vern Avery; and children, Greg and Stacy Avery, Steve and Shelley Avery, Ryan and Tiffany Larsson, Debra and Craig Hamilton, and Michelle and Dale Altenburg. Bob was blessed with and adored his ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

A celebration of his life will be held opening weekend of crab season on Saturday, August 19 from 1pm-5pm at his home, The Beach House, as this was his favorite time to have crab on the wall.
