Robert (Bob) Lee Walton of St. John, WA passed away May 20, 2019 after a brief illness. Bob was born April 24, 1934 in Tacoma, WA to Leroy and Edna Walton Sr. He was a gifted musician that mastered several instruments, played in a band, and enjoyed music throughout his life.



As a teenager, Bob joined the Tacoma Mountaineers and became part of a group of renowned climbers including Jim and Lou Whittaker and Leroy Ritchie. Together they climbed most of the major peaks in the Pacific Northwest. In 1958, Bob was a member of the team that made the first ascent of the South Mowich Glacier Icefall and Tahoma Sickle on the West Wall of Mt. Rainier, a route seldom used since due to its technical difficulty and dangerous terrain.

Following graduation from Stadium High School, Bob served in the Coast Guard, spending time on an ice cutter in the Arctic. Bob enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting and the outdoors, which he loved to paint until his final days. In 1957 he married Rosemary "Robin" Fogarty and started a family. 

Bob began painting in his 30’s. In a matter of a few years, he became an accomplished full-time western artist, with his paintings appearing in galleries, art shows, and private collections throughout the United States, including an original painting on display in the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Washington DC and a 6,356 square foot mural in Heppner, Oregon.
