Robert Sizer Obituary

Victor - Robert F. Sizer died at Bitterroot Living Center in Stevensville, MT on Tuesday, January 30, 2024. Bob was born April 7, 1925 in Victor, MT. He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers and his wife, Lorraine. In Bob’s own words: Seeing that I have no close relatives, I will write my own obituary. I graduated from Victor High School in 1943 and enlisted directly into the Army. Ironically, I stayed for the next 26 years. I served in World War II (Europe), the Korean War (three times) and Vietnam. I loved the comradery and adventure of being a soldier. I didn’t like the needless deaths, the blood and the sorrow. I was a medic in World War II (Battalion Aid Station) and an artillery officer in Korea, and for the rest of my service. After I was released from active duty, I went to college and earned a couple degrees, and taught school for eight years. I have met so many memorable people over the years. Homeless people in post-war Europe and Korea, hallowed monks in Japan, and KSC’s (Korean Service Corps), who chugged (backpack) supplies in Korea under fire and have all been remembered countless times. It’s been a good ride. There were bumps, mud holes, and rough patches, but there were also lots of spring flowers, soft rain, autumn leaves, falling snowflakes and colorful sunsets. I have known some good dogs, some prissy cats, and a raccoon whom I’m sorry I have to leave. All have been my family. Interment will be at the Veterans Cemetery in Missoula with my wife. I am survived by friends and acquaintances. --- Goodbye. Condolences and memories may shared at www.whitesittfuneral home.com.
