Robert H Watkins, age 70, passed away suddenly and peacefully at his happy place – Camp Dearborn in Milford, Michigan on September 7, 2022. His untimely death occurred just a couple of months after he retired from MedSpeed Healthcare Logistics after a 40-year career in healthcare.
Born in 1952 in Romulus Township Michigan to Raymond Homer Watkins and Jo-Ann Stearns Watkins, Bob was a 1970 graduate of St. Alphonsus High School in Dearborn, Michigan.
He is survived by loved ones: daughter Robin Palmer and grandchildren Adrianna and Madison Liford, and Adam Rakes II in Dearborn Heights, Michigan and his beloved significant other, Kitty Flynn.
Bob leaves behind sisters Patricia Watkins, (Pamela Watkins, deceased), Joseph Watkins (Jo Ann), Lori Ann Bloom Phillips, Timothy Bloom (Lisa), and Tami Bloom Adkins (Philip), as well as nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends whose lives Bob touched.
Camping, golfing, and fantasy football were other consuming passions and Bob loved nothing better than to drive up to beautiful Milford, Michigan, and his beloved Camp Dearborn – his “home away from home”.
Visitation will be at the Schrader-Howell Funeral Home, 280 S. Main Street, Plymouth, Michigan on Sunday, September 11, from 1:00 to 5:00PM and the memorial service will be at 5:00PM.
