It is with profound sorrow the family announces the passing of Robert “Bob” Duane Everly of Clinton, who died at his home on January 17, 2022. He was 83.
Bob was born in Carnegie on July 14, 1938, the son of Robert and Flora “Dolly” (Baker) Everly. He grew up in Beaver County and attended Southside schools. Upon graduating high school, Bob enlisted in the United States Army, where he proudly served in Vietnam, the U.S., France and Germany, attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant prior to his honorable discharge after 14 years in 1967.
Bob met the love of his life, Faith Stobart, and the two married on April 18, 1980. Bob and Faith were a match made in Heaven, sharing a unique love that was the envy of everyone who met them. A day did not go by where Bob did not tell his “Faithy” how much he loved and appreciated her. He considered himself the luckiest man to have her as a wife.

Most of all, Bob loved spending time with his wife, whom by his words he could not live one day without. Being the devoted and loving husband he was, God granted him his wish, and carried him home in his loving arms.
To his family and friends, Bob was known for his candor, quick wit and sharp sense of humor, which he got from his mother. Bob was loved by all who knew him and was a friend to many. He loved his family and was kind to everyone he met.
