When you first met Bob he most likely said, "Hi I’m Bob, spelled the same forwards and backwards." He also bragged that he never lived more than 10 miles from the place he was born. On 4th of July, 1960 Bob was born in Everett General Hospital to June and Vern Winchell. He graduated from Mariner High School and really did never live more than 10 miles from Everett. He made a good living as a CNC Programmer for machine shops in the Everett and Arlington area. He is survived by his loving wife Karen, sons Christopher and Timothy, his daughter Michelle, and stepdaughter Elaine and her husband Ian and granddaughters Maddy and Avery. Also, his Brothers Bill and his wife Alicia, and Steve and his wife Julie and niece Katherine. Bob was rich with the love of friends and family. He was a member of the Evergreen Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, the Greater Everett Brewers League, and the American Civil Liberties Union. He enjoyed astronomy, camping, travel, live music, brewing beer and many other endeavors. He was well-known for his American Barleywine and Doppelbock, his favorite homebrews. A private man, he kept a lot of things to himself including a 3-year battle with cancer that finally won out. He went with dignity and in his own way on his own terms. He had a strong spirit and he fought hard. He is finally out of pain and at peace now. A Celebration of Life will be planned for Spring 2023. Every one is invited to plant a tree in his honor through One Tree Planted. We will never forget this amazing man, and the richness he brought to each and every one of our lives.


Leave the earth with beauty

Earth specializes in soil transformation, an environmentally-friendly alternative to burial and cremation. Over a 45-day process, we gently transform a body into nutrient-rich soil. We then send this soil to our local conservation land where it’s used for restoration projects such as reforestation and nourishing challenged ecosystems.
