Robert Percifield

In the early afternoon of June 8, 2024 the fishing was not so great. One more cast with his favorite fishin’ lure and The Mighty 0l’ Fisherman was gone. Bob Percifield left his loving family and friends to fish in the beautiful streams of Heaven. His Mom and Dad were waiting for him with fishin’ pole in hand saying, “It’s about time you showed up son, we’ve been waiting for you long enough.”

Robert {Bob) Jess Percifield was born to Robert Bates Percifield and Pearl Virginia Dawson in Ronan, Montana on Dec. 6, 1933. Bob spent his younger years with his Grandparents while his parents worked in logging camps in Montana. Bob moved with his parents to Kennewick Washington living in Campbell’s Cabins when he was about seven years old.

Bob was a member of The Laborers Local Union 348 for approximately 45 years. He worked construction on many dams in Washington including McNary Dam. Bob lost his father when he was just 15 years old to a terrible accident on McNary Dam. He would then take over the head of the household to help his mother and his brother and sisters.
Bob loved hunting and fishing with family and friends. Salmon, Steelhead, catfish, ducks, geese, whitetail and mule deer feared him. He has many beautiful photos to show for his love of the sport. He taught his children and his grandchildren to love the great outdoors and everything it had to offer.

When Bob wasn’t hunting or fishing you could find him at the Kennewick Eagles 2485 involved in many charity events. He was a loyal member of the Eagles spanning some 20 years. Bob was very proud of his “2485 Hillbilly Band,” entertaining his friends with his song and music. When he wasn’t “pickin’ and grinnin” you could find him in the Annex playing cards. He was the one with the great big smile on his face and your money in his pocket.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents, his sisters Patricia Coleman and Glenda Huff Hamilton, his children, Monty and Terry Percifield and his great Grandson Gage Percifield.

Surviving Bob are his loving wife of 30 years, Shirley Percifield, Brother Danny Lee Percifield, Sister-in-law and dear friend Doris Cook, son and Daughter-in-law, Bob and Oksana Percifield, and daughter-in-law Janet Percifield. Also surviving Grampa Pig are his grandchildren, great grandchildren, his great, great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews and many wonderful friends. Bob’s grandchildren gave him the name Grampa Pig because of his love for raising pigs. He provided many trophy winning pigs to 4-H youngsters. That made him very proud.

A graveside service will be held at Sunset Gardens, 915 Bypass Hwy, Richland Washington on July 13, 2024 at 11:00 am. A Celebration of Life and potluck to follow at 1:00 pm at The Kennewick Eagles 2485, 115 North Fruitland Street. Please feel free to bring a dish for the potluck luncheon.
The family would like to give a heartfelt thank you to “Heartlinks Hospice” for their gentle and loving care given to our loved one. Your help was so greatly appreciated.
