Robert "Bob" Delgadillo

Robert "Bob" Delgadillo, 50, passed away on June 21, 2007 after a short battle with cancer.

He was the oldest of three children born to Juan and Mary Delgadillo. He was raised in Seligman and married his high school sweetheart, Georgia. In 1976 they moved to Flagstaff where their three children were born and raised.

Over the years he was a laborer at Ponderosa Paper Company and Jeld Wen Fiber, and he also managed his own rental properties. His real claim to fame is the antics he would pull on unsuspecting customers at the famous Delgadillo's Snow Cap in Seligman, where you can get a cheeseburger with cheese and dead chicken. He was a gifted drummer and played with many of the local musicians throughout the years. He was a natural at making someone feel like one of the family, which has won him love and affection of many.

He was preceded in death by his father and mother.

He is survived by his wife of almost 32 years, Georgia; two daughters Bree of Las Vegas, and Aerie Wolfe (Jason) of Flagstaff; and a son Matthew of Wichita, as well as two beautiful grandsons. He is also survived by his brother Juan of Seligman, and sister Cecilia Alvarado of Bullhead City, many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and friends. He will be missed dearly.

Services were held in Flagstaff at St. Pius X Chapel, 2257 E. Cedar Ave. Rosary was recited Sunday evening, June 24, 2007 where Bob was also eulogized. A funeral Mass took place on Monday, June 25.

In lieu of flowers the family request donations may be made in his honor at the American Cancer Society's Climb Chino for Cancer, to be held in Seligman on July 21. Donations may be sent to the American Cancer Society, 2724 E. Lakin, Ste. 9, Flagstaff, AZ 86004, (928) 526-3800, ext. 3. Please make checks payable to The American Cancer Society, in honor of Robert Delgadillo.
