CORVALLIS — Robert Sago, 77, of Corvallis, passed away on Dec. 20, 2018, at Marcus Daly Hospice.
He was born on Jan. 31, 1941, in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, to Edward George and Julia Anchak Sago.
Bob was most likely known through his employment at the local feed store where he worked for nearly 30 years. He started when it was known as Peavey, then it became Lake Milling before it became Lakeland Feed. To his customers, he was affectionately known as “Big Bob” or “Chicken Bob”. It did not seem to matter if you were in the market for chicks, he seemed to convince you that you needed a dozen or more by the time you left.
Bob also loved hunting and fishing with his son Ed and his grandson Kaleb. He enjoyed classic Mopars and attending car shows in the Spokane Valley. He also enjoyed sitting in the garden watering his plants.
Robert is preceded in death by his parents and daughter Roberta Sago
Robert is survived by his wife, Dolores; daughter, Rebecca; son, Ed; grandson, Kaleb (Brittany); great-granddaughter, Lennon; and great-grandson Matthew.
A visitation will be held on Thursday, Dec. 27, 2018, at Daly-Leach Memorial Chapel from 5-8 p.m. A funeral mass will be held on Friday, Dec. 28, 2018, at Saint Frances Catholic Church in Hamilton at 11 a.m., immediately followed by a reception at the Pastoral Life Center adjacent to the church. A graveside service for Bob will be held at 1:30 p.m., at Riverview Cemetery in Hamilton.
