Bob Waltee

Bob Waltee, a beloved son, father and friend to many, passed away due to natural causes Sunday, December 16, 2018, in Havre, MT. 

Bob was born February 24, 1969, in Kalispell, MT, to Robert Waltee Sr. and Barbara Biers. He was raised in Oregon and Montana, attending Havre High School with the class of 1987.

Over the years, he was a maintenance worker,  landscaper, coal miner, tree planter, cook, rescue dog worker, artist,  fisherman, roadie and bell ringer. He may have shovelled your walk last winter. He lived for some time in the Missoula area with his first love, Deanna Doyra, and their children, Shaela and Blaze Waltee. He later migrated to the East Coast with his son Zach Waltee and family there, eventually returning to Missoula and then to North Dakota to be closer with his brother Darryl Lehmann of Bismarck and his grandmother Jane Bitterman of Beulah. His youngest son, Logan Waltee, lives there still.

Considering Montana home, he returned in 2010, exploring and visiting several parts of the state from fishing at Lakeside on Flathead to hiking Blue Mountain near Lolo to camping in the Rimrocks of Billings to fencing and running cows in the Bear Paws and Chinook area to riding his bike on the Havre streets - he had a life-long love of the outdoors and the Big Sky country of Montana.

His mother, Barbara, moved to Havre to be closer with him in the fall of 2014. Though he didn't see them often,  Bob loved each one of his children very much.

A memorial will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, December 30, 2018, at Havre's Set Free Ministries.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Feed My Sheep.
