Robert Brennan

Oct. 15, 1954-May 21, 2014

DUNCAN — Robert Brennan, better known as “Tall Bob” passed away early Wednesday morning at Duncan Regional Hospital, following a brief illness. He was 59 years old.

Bob was born Oct. 15, 1954 in Yuma, Ariz. to Robert and Marion (Shulver) Brennan. Over the years he worked as a carpenter, mechanic, lawn mower repairman, and welder. However, the job he loved the most was as a horse packer and guide in Durango, Colo. Tall Bob had made many friends over the years. He will be missed, but never forgotten.

Survivors include his brother, John Brennan and wife Bonnie, Durango, Colo.; a sister, Judy Kinman Petty, Comanche;  his niece, Annette Skeen and husband Elmer, Duncan; great-niece, Lacey Jones and husband Patrick, Comanche; great-nephew, Kirby Skeen, Duncan; his great-great-niece and nephews, Payton and Paxton Jones; and Faryan and Roper Skeen.

Bob requested no viewing and no memorial service. He was always concerned about not putting people out. He has donated his body for medical research as a way to help others.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Stephens County Humane Society P.O. Box 669 Duncan, 73533 or Christian Helping Hands in Comanche,  608 Oak Main, Comanche, 73529.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
