Robert “Bob” Eugene Mikesell, Lt. Cmdr., USN (Ret.)

Bob passed away peacefully on April 3, 2017 surrounded by his loving family in the Moosehaven Life Care Center at the age of 84. He was born in North Lima, Ohio, in November 1932 to parents Robert Clayton Mikesell and Mary Margaret (Price) Mikesell.
Bob graduated from Springfield High School in Petersburg, Ohio in 1950. He married Mary Ann “Rusty” Withers in 1952 in St. James Episcopal Church, Boardman, Ohio. He is survived by his devoted wife, daughters Stephanie Leigh Mikesell (Terry McFaul) of Madison, Wisc. and Sally Mikesell Crosby (Jim) of Orange Park, Fla., grandsons Alexander Galen Crosby (Hayleigh) and Gregory Robert Crosby of Orange Park, Fla. He is also survived by his sister Sandra Mikesell Davis (Jim) of Hanoverton, Ohio.
He served his country honorably, enlisting in the United States Navy in 1951 and retiring after 24 years of service in 1975. Bob was a Korean and Vietnam War veteran and also served in other duty stations in the United States. Following his retirement from the United States Navy, Bob served as a defense contractor assisting the Hellenic Air Force until 1992.
He became affiliated with the Loyal Order of Moose on August 7, 2012 when he joined Lake Shore #2020 in Orange Park Florida. Bob came to Moosehaven with his wife Rusty on February 11, 2015 where he resided for the past 2 years.

Bob’s family will always be grateful for the loving care they have received from the entire Moosehaven family. We are especially thankful for the staff of the Life Care Center and Katherine Smith Hall who provided such compassionate care for Bob and his family in his final months. The family would also like to thank Community Hospice of Northeast Florida for their exemplary care for all of us in his final days.
