In loving memory ~
Bob passed away on October 24th, 2022. He went peacefully in his home, with his boots on. He was surrounded by two sisters, two nieces, and his son.
Bob's life can be summed up as one extraordinary journey with many chapters, friends and adventures; a Ski bum, African Game Warden, outdoor writer, wildlife ecologist, advocate for tourism and conservation, river bum, mountain bum, outfitter, rancher, African tour guide and African Chief, and finally, late in life, a father. From the Northern Rockies to the deserts and rivers of the southwest to the African savannah and beyond. Mr. Bob has had a good time. (Friends in Ghana couldn't pronounce the "J" in Jamieson, so he was always "Mr. Bob" there.)
"I have pretty much done everything I ever wanted to, from my time in Africa, to skiing all over the world, to hunting the north, rafting wild rivers in many places, to loving some pretty amazing women.... it has been a damn good ride...."
