Captain Bob Smith, 78
September 17, 1933 – January 15, 2012

His family moved to Denver shortly after. Bob joined the Navy at the age of 19 and served on board the ship USS Phillipine Sea during the Korean War. On return he married and has three surviving children.

After beginning to learn to fly at the age of 14 he was ready to join Western Airlines in 1966. He served Western as a pilot. He also served in numerous elected positions with the Air Lines Pilots Association including Master Executive Counsel Chair. He flew for Delta after Western merged with Delta until his retirement.
Through his adventurous years he skied the mountains of Colorado, sailed in boat races in Coronado, Calif., snowmobiled the frozen lakes of Minnesota, golfed Hawaii golf courses. He was a member of CAMS and flew RC airplanes for many years. His greatest love was Harleys. He got his first in 1947. In later years he bought and sold bikes all over the nation. He was a lifetime member of HOG after joining in 1983. He had fun with the Tuesday and Thursday golfing guys and once a year those crazy Kalispel golfers.

Subj: Capt. Robert E. Smith

Captain Robert E. Smith, passed away from throat cancer Sunday, Jan. 15th, 2012. I believe Bob hired on with Western Air Lines in 1966 as a Co-Pilot, then transferred to Minneapolis in 1977 as a 727 Captain, then to Salt Lake City in 1982 as a 727 Captain and a Delta Air Lines 727 Captain after the merger in 1987, where he retired medically in 1993. In the middle 1970's, Bob was Chairman of the Western Air Lines ALPA Master Executive Council. At his passing, Bob lived with his
wife, Pasty, in Couer d'Alene, ID. Bob’s obituary can be seen at

It is with a sad heart that I must inform you that Fred passed away on Wednesday. Cryssie & I were out eating and we got the call from Freddie, their daughter. She said it started some time around six the night before and the care giver called the doctor. He was taken to Prebyterian and just gave out. Freddie said he did not have a heart attack, he just had lost a lot of weight and gave out. Mauriece has
been told but doesn't understand. Freddie & David drove to Robeson Ranch from Houston arriving about 8pm on Wednesday.
Funeral arrangements at bottom of email.
Cathy Carrasco Pate & Doug Pate have graciously offered their home for a gathering to celebrate Fred's life following the service. Their address is 3050 Creek Bend Circle

It is VERY close to the funeral home. Please bring some kind of food. Cryssie is bringing a ham. Need one more something like roast beef or a turkey breast and anything else for fill-ins. If you plan to bring paper goods, like paper towels, trash bags, paper plates, dessert plates, napkins or plastic ware please co-ordinate that with Cathy. I will help co-ordinate the food, so if you know what you are bringing, let me know. That way I can let anyone know what else is needed if you are open for suggestions. Cathy said she would get wine and beer, so if you want to give her money instead of cooking, I am sure that would be appreciated as well.
I have no idea at this time where Mauriece will go to live, or any other specific details.

Sincerely,
Linda Sorenson
There will be a visitation on Sunday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and the funeral will be at 10 a.m. on Monday.Fred's grandson, Troy, will conduct the service.
