Robert “Bob” Edwin Oviatt, 59, died peacefully at home in his man-cave in Eau Claire on June 27, 2020.

Born Oct. 8, 1960, in Owosso, Mich., Robert was an outdoorsman, enjoying mountaineering from a young age. He was passionate about his family, his Harley, deer hunting and playing with his bands, “Freestone” and “The Loose Cannons.” He adored good music, and he instilled that in his children. His quiet presence, his goofy personality and his sense of humor will all be greatly missed.
