Robert "Bob" Bruce Jeppesen, 58, of Spokane, Washington, died Sunday, March 12, 2006, at the Spokane Hospital.

Bob was born April 25, 1948, in California, to Robert Bruce Murphy and Betty Jo Jeppesen, who later divorced.

At a very young age Bob was adopted by his grandparents, Joseph and Mildred Jeppesen, when his mother died of balbar polio.

He grew up on the Jeppesen Farm north of Rexburg with his cousins, and graduated from Madison High School.  He worked on different farms in the valley until moving to Kettle Falls, Washington.

He married Morrine Page, whom he later divorced.  He then married Gloria Fiveash.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping with friends and family.

Everyone who knew him called him by his nickname, Bubba. He was loved by those who knew him because of his friendly ways and good heart.

He is survived by his children, Sharon Jeppesen of American Falls and Kelly Jeppesen of Pocatello; five grandchildren: Michael, Brandon, Cody, Alisha and Casey; his brother and sisters by adoption: Keith Jeppesen, Phyllis Morris and Joyce Covington, all of Rexburg.

He was preceded in death by his mother and grandparents.

Funeral services will be conducted Saturday in Kettle Falls, Washington.  A Memorial service will be held in Rexburg at the graveside, to be announced at a later date.
