Robert James Bleick, 34 passed away on January 3, 2024 in Kalispell. Robert was born on January 24, 1989 to Richard Bleick and Laurie Timmons (Shipp) in Spokane, Washington.
Bobby spent his childhood in the Flathead Valley with a couple of years in Washington state both of which he made many friends at school and enjoyed fishing and playing baseball.
Bobby had a passion for cars starting at an early age; particularly Honda’s. He attended Flathead High School, where he expressed that love for tinkering with cars by joining an automotive club and then worked at Norby’s Car Care. Bobby joined the National Guard out of high school and subsequently worked at the Armory there as well for a time. He loved playing with Legos as a kid and that desire to create, continued in his adult life; from building furniture to remodeling homes and new construction as well. He would ultimately translate that skillset into a career, which he continued until he passed. He was a soft-hearted man who loved children. They were drawn to his big blue eyes and goofy, yet charming smile, all the nieces and nephews were excited to see Uncle Bobby. He also loved animals, including his turtle, that he named Bert McCracken (after his favorite musician), and his beloved dogs Zimba and Kiwi. His greatest love was for his sons Landen and Kaeden.
Bobby is preceded in death by grandparents and great-grandparents who loved him very much. He is survived by his children Landen James Bleick, Kaeden Douglas Bleick, his parents Laurie & Greg Timmons, siblings Mike Joshua Bleick and his fiancé’ Rachelle, Kevin Timmons, Nina Timmons, and John Richardson. He is also survived by his grandpa Tom and Grandmother’s Sandy and Alaina as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Bobby was blessed to be loved by so many of his family and friends, all of whom will miss him dearly but will continue to hold his spirit in their hearts.
