Robert “Bob” was born in Oakland, California on November 28, 1954, to Beverly and Reay Peart. He spent much of his childhood in Lake Tahoe, graduating from South Tahoe High in 1973.

In 1996 Bob moved back to South Lake Tahoe, where he lived for most of the remainder of his life. In 1998 he married his wife, Angie. He worked at Lake Tahoe Community College for many years as an office administrator, retiring in 2020.
He had several passions including genealogy, fishing, and music, particularly classic rock. He enjoyed building miniature train models and was a Carson City Railroad Association member. He loved traveling and was passionate about Disneyland where he enjoyed visiting and collecting memorabilia. He was a sports enthusiast and loved the San Francisco Giants and 49ers.
Bob will forever be loved and remembered by family and friends for his sense of humor, storytelling, and ability to make conversation with anyone. He loved connecting with and learning about others.
Bob is survived by son David Peart, daughters Michelle Damante and Lisa Peart-Velez, granddaughter Kayla Peart, brother Bruce Peart and Heidi Haugen, partner Beverly Guariglia, Kathryn and Bill Green of Davis, as well as nieces, cousins, and many friends.
