APRIL 11, 1943 – JANUARY 30, 2021
Robert “Bob” William Fagler passed away on January 30, 2021 at Applewood Living Center in Longmont, CO. He was 77 years old.
Robert was born on April 11, 1943 in Longmont, CO and attended Longmont High School before entering the upholstery trade. He operated his own business, Robert’s Upholstery, for over 30 years.
Robert married Wilberta “Willie” Louise Beach in December 1960. They quickly welcomed four daughters; Nancy Yvonne, Linda Louise, Kristine Anne, and Penny Jane. Many of their family activities were based around camping and fishing, which Robert later enjoyed with his grandchildren, as well. Robert loved fixing up old cars and restored classics, such as the Durant and Oldsmobile; and who knows how many others, as some projects were kept hidden from his wife. Robert enjoyed model trains, cataloging finds from stamp and coin exhibitions, and Clint Eastwood movies.
Robert lost his wife Wilberta in 2010 after 49 years of marriage, due to health complications. Robert focused his time on his love of train models and created vast landscapes, which he was happy to show to anyone. Robert was able to enjoy his first cruise in 2017, plus several baseball games with his daughter, Linda, who cared for him for many years. Despite limited mobility, Robert never stopped enjoying his hobbies and continued his stamp and coin, and model collection until the very end.
Robert was preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Helen; wife, Wilberta; and various other family and friends. He is survived by his children, Nancy Rumfelt (husband Robert), Linda Allour (husband Patrick), Kristine Fagler, and Penny Snow; siblings Kenneth Fagler (wife Pat), and Patricia Fagler; his grandchildren, Danielle Allour, Hannah Harris, Emily Theisen, Austin Clark, Miranda Theisen, Khira Hathaway (husband Jack), William Snow, (wife Memorie); and great-grandchildren, Tayler, Gary, Aeidan, Eralynn, and Harlen.
A private Celebration of Life was held for close family and friends on Thursday, February 4, 2021 at Ahlberg Funeral Chapel; after which Robert was laid to eternal rest next to his loving wife Wilberta, at Longmont Mountain View Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Robert’s name to Mountain States Children’s Home of Longmont, CO. More information can be found on their website, www.msch.org.
