Bob was a true outdoorsman and a cowboy at heart and frequented Plumas County many times over the years.

He is survived by his loving daughter, Amy Argento (Joe); sister, Ann Becker (David); nephew, Matthew Becker; his wife, Louise Ost; brother John Ost; and numerous nieces and a nephew from the Portland, Oregon area.
