Following a short illness, Bob Stinson, a Bellevue stalwart, passed away at the Buffett Cancer Center.  He spent nearly his entire life living and working in Bellevue.  He progressed from being a caretaker at the Bellevue Cemetery to become the Ward 2 Councilman.  Along his path, he served as a Rescue Squad Chief for the Bellevue Volunteer Fire Department and then served 26 years on the Bellevue Police Department.  He was a police officer at the Omaha Airport at the time of his death.  Bob was an avid Big Red fan but will best be remembered for his dedication and sense of responsibility in public service.  For his family, he will always be a great father to his children and a loving husband to his wife of 43 years.

    RIP Bob Stinson
    My condolences to the family & friends.
    I have very fond memories growing up with the family, as we lived in the same neighborhood, went to the same school & even had the same last name. Your mom Ruth made me a beautiful macrame plant hanger that held a large round piece of glass for my plants. That was about 40 years ago and I still cherish it dearly. The entire family were all beautiful souls. You will be missed dearly. Again sending love to all the family and friends.

    I remember bowling with Bob and Linda back when my husband was alive, Bob was one of the paramedics who worked on my husband, Chuck in 1990 when his heart attack took him away. Condolences to Linda and family.
