Robert A. “Bob” West, Sr., of Saint Charles, Missouri, passed away Sunday, June 27, 2021, at the age of 88.  Loving husband of the late Marcia Lois West; beloved son of the late Walter West and Helen Cora Carr; devoted father of Robert “Bobby” West, Jr.; dearest brother of Beverly (the late Ed) Swain, Michelle (Timothy, Sr.) Sargent, and the late Gary West; and dear uncle, brother-in-law, and friend to many.

Bob worked for Rexall Drug Company and retired after more than 35 years.  He was a resourceful employee and worked in many areas of the company, including the warehouse, parcel post supervisor, and dock foreman.

Bob was a wonderful family man, and family was most important to him.  He always loved spending time with his family, no matter what they were doing.  He loved to go on road trips with his wife and take cross country adventures to California to see the Rockies, as well as spending time with his uncle and other family.  He also liked to just hop in the car and take a good ole Sunday drive.  As much as Bob was a family man, he also adored his dogs very much.

As an outdoorsman, Bob loved being outside and he enjoyed fishing, camping, and anything else he could do with his family.  He was a Scout leader for his son's Boy Scout den, and he always looked forward to the jamborees.

Bob was an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals, and he always enjoyed going to their games in his younger years with his buddies.  He also liked watching their games on TV, and he loved Stan Musial, as well as many other players from the 40s, 50s, and 60s era baseball.

Bob was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.  Memorial contributions may be made in Bob’s name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Baue Funeral Homes is currently following CDC recommendations regarding mask and social distancing policies.

    Dear Bob, Jr., Beverly and Michelle, and your great big families,
    Deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear Dad, Brother and Uncle. You will always remember how he loved you. But now he is heaven’s gain – I bet Marcia has had that little hole to pull him through ready and waiting. His spirit will always be in your hearts till you meet again.
    Sincerely,
    Nancy Doerhoff

    candle 7While we did not have the opportunity to meet Bob we heard a lot about him from his sister, Bev, while she travelled around part of Australia and New Zealand with Mary and I and our St Louis friends, Ann and Nancy.
    Besides being very much loved by his younger sister it was clear that they had a wonderful relationship. The assistance Bob had provided to the family while they were growing up together will never be forgotten.
    We will not have an opportunity to meet Bob when we return to St Louis but we will know in our hearts that his memory will never be forgotten.
    Denis and Mary Mockler

    Dear Beverly, I know from my own loss of my oldest brother that it is like losing an anchor to your childhood and an irreplaceable link to the “you” you were then. Big brothers are protectors, dispensers of wisdom, guidance, and practical help, teasing & tormenting at times, but always there when needed.
    Your family was blessed to have him with you so long, and he was incredibly blessed to have two loving sisters and his son to ease his passing. May God grant you comfort in your bereavement.
