Robert Henry Henricks, 92, of Casa Grande, passed away peacefully at his home on September 24, 2023, surrounded by his loved ones. Born on September 27, 1930, in Freeport, Illinois, he was the cherished son of Henry and Josephine Henricks.
Robert was an extraordinary man who touched the lives of all who knew him. As a proud veteran of the True Blue Airforce, he exemplified honor and bravery throughout his service. However, it was in his role as a father that Robert truly shone. He deeply loved his family and was their rock of strength and support.
A great dancer with an infectious zest for life, Robert found joy in every moment. He possessed a spirit of adventure and had a passion for travel, particularly to Hawaii. Alongside his beloved wife, Doreen of 42 years, Robert journeyed across all fifty states over an unforgettable six-year period.
Throughout their marriage, Doreen remained the center of Robert's world. Their bond was one of deep devotion and unwavering love. Always finding ways to surprise her and make her smile, Robert cherished their time together with every passing day.
Not only did Robert share immeasurable love with his immediate family but also embraced his extended family as his own. He treated all his in-laws as beloved children, fostering a sense of unity and warmth that brought everyone closer.
Robert will be greatly missed by those he leaves behind. He is survived by his loving wife Doreen; sons and daughters Judy Pauley, Debbie Rainbolt, Frannie Navarro, Danny Henricks, Denise Bonacorso, Anissa Henricks, and Tim Henricks; twenty-five grandchildren; fifty great-grandchildren; and seven great-great-grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, Robert is preceded in death by his daughters Kathy Dutra-Gomez and Lori A. Davis, as well as his sisters Lavonne, Lois, and Lucille.
Today we gather to celebrate the incredible life of Robert Henry Henricks. Let us remember him for the love he shared, the joy he brought, and the everlasting impact he had on those fortunate enough to know him. May his legacy live on in our hearts forever.
