Robert “Bob” Joseph Lesh, 89, of Great Falls, passed away on November 5, 2020 from COVID complications surrounded by family.

Robert was born in Great Falls and moved to Stockett when he was a small child. He went to elementary school in Stockett and graduated high school from Centerville. He was an outstanding athlete in both football and basketball. After graduation, he joined the United States Marine Corps. On his third deployment to Korea serving as a supply sergeant, the armistice was signed, and they were able to turn around and come back home, before being honorably discharged.

Bob was always a hard worker. He worked for Electric City printing for 20 years as a pressman and for The City of Great Falls Park and Rec department where he retired after 19 years. He was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish for over 60 years.

Bob had a love for athletics. He was his children’s and grandchildren’s biggest fan, attending every sporting event and even some practices. He even won an award for being the number one bench coach, because he was always the loudest in the room. He loved the outdoors and spending time with family on Holter Lake boating and fishing. He was the best handyman, he fixed everything, so it ran smoothly. He was a big guy with an even bigger heart. Family was everything!
