Robert G. Kirkland

Robert G. Kirkland, who was

80 years young, passed from this life on Jan. 27 in the Veterans’ Hospital in Fresno.

He was born in 1931 and was the beloved husband to Janet Kirkland from Hunters Valley. He died from a sudden, fatal bone cancer.

Mr. Kirkland is survived by his mother, Hazel Loucks, who is almost 102 years old; his daughter, Linda Turley; granddaughters, Kathleen Turley-Ramirez and Laura Pelletier; step-children Julie Saltsman, Cristine Sutherland, and Beverly Nichols, plus several greatgrandchildren.

Bob was preceded in death by his brother, Elmer Lee Kirkland; and his grandson, Austin Turley, all from the Modesto area.

No services are pending at his request. “My old truck driver just drove away to heaven, and he will be sadly missed,” his wife wrote. “We love you Bobby Gene.”
