Obituary

George Robert (Bob) Chilcoat, 82, lowered his final sail on January 28, 2019 at home in Urbanna. Bob was born on February 27, 1936 in Muskogee, OK to the late George L. and Pearl B. Chilcoat. Bob is survived by his wife of 16 years, Roberta Dutile Chilcoat. Also, his sons, Rob and wife Luz of Tulsa, OK; Jeff and wife Susan of Corpus Christie TX; his daughter, Emily Cook of Owasso. He is also survived by his step-daughter, Emily Yetzer and spouse Chrissie. He leaves five grandchildren, Nathan and Shelley Chilcoat, Malcolm Chilcoat, Will Cook, and Reid Yetzer. His loving big sister, Darlene Eaton of McAlester, OK also survives.

Bob was raised in Baton Rouge, LA, and was a 1960 graduate of Louisiana State University. Upon graduating, he enlisted in the Navy, entered Officer Candidate School, and was commissioned an Ensign. His service took him to many bases including Long Beach, CA, Key West, FL, Charleston, SC, and Norfolk, VA. His most memorable times were in the submarine service on board the USS Grampus. As much as Bob loved the Navy, he left after just six years as a full lieutenant to spend more time with his two young sons. Bob’s next journey was a career with IBM until his early retirement in 1994. It was then he purchased “Fairwind” a classic Bristol 40’ that he sailed around the Rappahannock and Chesapeake Bay. He was an excellent sailor, as sure footed on deck as a 20 year old. Bob enjoyed being an above average golfer and took pride in making his own clubs. He was a man of many talents, including building and repairing computers, and doing all the work on the addition/renovation of his and Roberta’s home on Howard Street. He worked hard and meticulously until his body could do no more.

A reception to remember Bob’s life will be held at the Middlesex County Women’s Club Building, 202 Virginia Street, Urbanna, Virginia, 23175 on Saturday, February 2, 2019 from 1-3:00 p.m. Faulkner Funeral Homes, Bristow-Faulkner Chapel is assisting the family with arrangements.
