Long-time resident and active community member, Bernhard Robert (Bob) Leirmoe passed away peacefully into the arms of Jesus on May 10 at home in Wickenburg, AZ. He was born to Adelaide (Tecklenburg) and Ben Leirmoe on October 12, 1936 in Bay Shore, Long Island, NY. After high school, Bob graduated from Pace University and joined the Army, serving honorably in the U.S. and France.

Bob was also a committed blood donor and member of the Red Cross 20-Gallon club. Bob enjoyed world travel, visiting family and friends across the U.S., bridge and Bible study. He was a faithful attendee at Mt. Hope, St. Albans and multiple bible study groups including those with Rod Hackett at Wickenburg Bible Fellowship.
