Obituary

Robert "Bob" Leon Comegys, Jr., passed away peacefully at his home in Bondurant on December 1st, 2018 of cancer (at the age of 74). He did so surrounded by four generations of family, to include his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Bob met his wife, Donna, when they were still in high school. They married young and had four children. For the next 57 years they spent their marriage living between Iowa and California, spending the bulk of those years living in the Bondurant area. With a skill of fixing things, Bob worked at Firestone in Des Moines for 31 years. Throughout his life, though, Bob worked in many fields and trades. He was extremely handy at all areas of labor, especially automotive work. In his spare time, he filled his years with trail-riding, car clubs, racing, swap meets, and family.

Rob is survived by his wife of 57 years, Donna. He is also survived by three of his children to include Jack (Vicki), Tracy Northway (Rick), and Brett (Jenny). In addition, Bob left behind ten grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren, other extended family members, friends, and his dog Herbie. He was preceded in death by his parents, four siblings, and his son Robin (Nita).

The family isn't having a traditional funeral, but is instead inviting people who knew Bob to a Celebration of LIfe on Wednesday, December 5th, 2018. The event will be from 5 pm. to 7:30 p.m at Camp Sunnyside,401 N.E. 66th Ave., Des Moines, Iowa 50313. A short prayer will be given at 6 p.m, and an opportunity for friends and family to openly share memories or stories of Bob will follow.

In lieu of cards or plants, the family asks that donations be made to the Pony Express Riders of Iowa, P.O. Box 1704, Des Moines, IA 50305, in the name of Robert Comegys, for the benefit of Easter Seals.
