ATASCADERO — Robert “Bob” Lewis Floth died in the early morning hours of Oct. 13, 2012, from complications following open heart surgery at Twin Cities Community Hospital.
Bob was born in Fresno on Aug. 13, 1951, to the proud parents of Curtis and Juanita Floth. Upon graduation from Canoga Park High School in 1969, he was drafted and joined the United States Air Force and served four years in Thailand and Maine during the Vietnam War. After returning home to Southern California, where he lived and worked, he married and had a daughter, Nicole.

After living many years in Paso Robles, he finally resided in Atascadero. He loved nothing more than spending time with his family. He also loved to fish, camp and go golfing.
He was preceded in death by his father, Curtis “Bud” Floth.
