Robert W. “Bobby” Kizer

April 28, 1979 — June 25, 2005

Purdue University has lost a great fan with the passing of young Robert W. “Bobby” Kizer. Bobby a resident of 10369 Pretty Lake Trail for most of his life, died of natural causes on Saturday morning June 25, 2005.

The 26 year old son of Robert M. and Virginia N. (Stephens) Kizer, he was born April 28, 1979 in Indianapolis, Indiana. He graduated from Plymouth High School with the Class of 1998. For a year and a half he enjoyed being a ‘stockman’ for the Plymouth Wal-Mart store.

Bobby had a large heart for many things… all sports, U.F.O’s, his pet cat ‘Cosmo’ and especially TURTLES. His competitive nature was displayed as an active participant in the Blueberry Festival Turtle races for over 18 years.

For Bobby who loved to visit the athletic facilities of any university, there was only one that truly moved him – the West Lafayette Indiana campus of Purdue University with its Mackey Arena and Ross-Ade Stadium. There he would routinely enjoy with his family their love of Boilermaker Basketball and Football, highlighted with a post-game trip to Arnie’s for his favorite salad and pizza. Nationally he followed his favored baseball team the Atlanta Braves.

He passed his personal time with watching movies and listening to music CD’s particularly that of John Williams.

Bobby is survived by his parents, Bob and Ginger Kizer and two brothers, Keith M. Kizer of Baltimore, MD and Ross M. Kizer of Sterling Virginia.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Gilbert R. and Betty Kizer and maternal grandparents Winfield and Rosa Stephens.

The family will receive friends from 4 – 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 29, 2005 in the Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home, 1100 N. Michigan St. Plymouth and one hour prior to an 11 a.m. service on Thursday in the Trinity United Methodist Church, 425 S. Michigan St. Plymouth, where Bobby was a member. The Rev. William Kaster, pastor, will officiate.

Burial will follow in the New Oakhill Cemetery, Plymouth where at his request his tombstone will read; “Go Purdue…beat I.U.!”

Memorial gifts in Bobby’s memory may be made to the church.
