Robert “Bob” Burlingame passed peacefully in the presence of family on November 8th, 2021 in Casper, WY.

Bob was born to Edward Burlingame and Blanche (Bailey) Burlingame on February 16th, 1946. He was born and raised in Elkader, IA and was the youngest of four siblings.

Bob did not like school, but preferred spending time with his friends and family. As a teenager he loved working at the Elkader Cinema, and at McTaggart Furniture Store. He enlisted in the United States Navy in 1968 and always spoke very highly of the time he spent serving his country. He loved telling stories about his ship, the USS Oriskany, and the places he explored while travelling the Pacific.

One of Bob’s favorite pastimes was singing and playing guitar. He was a very talented musician and a lifelong Elvis fan. Bob was known to share his love for music with everyone he knew. Although he favored rock & roll, he could play and enjoy music from all genres.

Bob was a kind and loving man. He was often heard saying his greatest achievement in life was having four beautiful children.

He is survived by his wife of 39 years Betty (Nelson) Burlingame, sons Aaron and Jason Burlingame, daughters Christie Burlingame and Karen (Burlingame) Davis. He is also survived by his brother Gary Burlingame, sister Sandra (Burlingame) Hakert, and 9 grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his brother Jon Burlingame, parents Edward and Blanche, his grandparents, many aunts and uncles, two nephews, and a niece.
