Robert “Bob” Michael

Heaven’s pastures must have been looking a little brown, the irrigation crews up there in need of a leader who knew how to get the water down the field and how to enjoy life between sets. And so, Friday evening, God took Robert “Bob” Michael home. He was 82.The casket will be open for visitation on Monday from 8 a.m.-5p.m. at the funeral home, and prior to services at the church. Funeral Services will be held at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, April 22, at First Congregational Church, Downtown Billings. Burial will follow at Mountview Cemetery. Instead of flowers, the family suggests memorials to the American Heart Association, 2812 1st Ave. N., Billings, MT, 59101. Or, if you’d prefer, buy yourself a beer and say it was on Bob. He’d have liked that.
