Bobby Leavitt was born to Franklin Ernest and Mary M Leavitt on 11/10/1936 – he really filled those 83 years full! He had one sister, Golda that died as an infant and is survived by seven brothers: Duane, Ronald & Pat, Norman, Elden & Carol, Dale, Lister & Lynda, Frank & Cheryl, and his very special friend Roxie Gordon. He was Uncle Bobby to many nieces and nephews and too many others who just claimed him. He was born in Nevada but grew up and went to school in Homedale, he looked forward to the monthly gatherings with classmates. He worked for farmers in the Homedale area, and Dick Rutledge at his Caldwell feedlot, then moved to a group home in Boise. He worked many places but his favorite was keeping Walmart’s parking lot clean, was employee of the month and honored for his15 years of service. He enjoyed serving in University Christian Church (now Parkview Christian Church) as an Elder and in the bell choir. He competed in Special Olympics for years and has the ribbons and medals to prove he was a winner! He won a gold medal in Bowling at the World Games. His many vacations included Disneyland, Hawaii, Alaskan cruise, Grand Olé’ Opry, Seattle Mariners game, San Diego, New York, Las Vegas, and always looked forward to his next trip. Many thanks to all the agencies that loved on him for years, he started with the ARC and final years were with the excellent staff and activities at HISway. Family graveside service were held Tuesday, May 19th at the Wilder cemetery. There will be a celebration, of a life well lived, at Parkview Church when we can be together again. Donations would be appreciated to the folks that gave extra meaning to his life: Idaho Special Olympics (199 E 52nd St, Garden City, ID 83714 or give.specialolympics.org/Idaho) or Parkview Christian Church (201 W Ustick Rd, Meridian, ID 83646). Looking forward to being with all of you who loved him soon!

Bobby was a stalwart of the University Christian Church bell choir. He was always present and would help others. Sometimes he would play his bell part and someone else’s part too.! He was a gentleman, a very kind man and a very Christian person. God bless him.
