Robert "Bob" Ray Cline was born in Kansas on November 10, 1943.
He graduated from Fort Hays State College in 1965 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Chemistry and then was commissioned into the Ari Force in June 1966. He was an Air Traffic/Weapons Controller and he served tours in Vietnam, Germany, Spain, Korea, and within the United States.
After retiring from the Air Force in 1986, he owned and operated two home maintenance businesses focused on keeping senior citizens in their homes. He also volunteered for Silver Key, where he enjoyed meeting and helping senior citizens. From 2002 to 2019, Bob was a technical service rep for Diversified Chemical Technology working at Coors Brewery in Golden, Colorado.
Bob loved his family and always put them first. He married the love of his life "T" in 1982, and they served in the Air Force together until his retirement. Bob encouraged and supported T as she continued her Air Force career, and when they moved to Colorado for an assignment at the Air Force Academy, Bob knew he had found God's country and his forever home.
Bob was preceded in death by his mother, Alice L. Taylor.
He is survived by his loving wife, Teresa; his children, Debbie (Simon) Bidwell, Shelly (Ken) Richardson, and Brian (Rashael) Cline; and his seven grandchildren; as well as his siblings, Barb Beine, Julia Taylor, and Sam (Wanda) Taylor; four nephews and a niece.
Bob was everyone's rock and their helping hand - he was always there when you needed him. He will be greatly missed by his many friends and family.
