Obituary for Robert Arthur Domer

Robert Arthur “Bob” Domer, 77, died Tuesday, October 16, 2018, at his home in rural Vinton following a recent illness.
Memorial services will be held 11:00 a.m. Friday, October 19, 2018, at the Vinton Presbyterian Church with Rev. Phil Borleske officiating. Visitation will be held from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Thursday, October 18, at Van Steenhuyse-Russell Funeral Home in Vinton.
Bob was born October 22, 1940, in Stanwood, Iowa, the son of Arthur and Bessie Klinkhamer Domer. He graduated from Stanwood High School and attended Iowa State University in Ames for animal husbandry.
Bob proudly served his country in the National Guard.
On January 24, 1970, Bob was united in marriage with Joyce Zachmeyer in Cedar Rapids.
Bob raised cattle and loved to show them, winning the Iowa State Fair Champion Steer in 1989, which led to the purchase of his prize cattle by Japanese cattle buyers. Bob also worked in sales for Wick Buildings.
He enjoyed spending time with his grandsons and attending their sporting events and activities. He and the boys liked to bet on their favorite teams; no one ever paid up, but they enjoyed bragging rights when their team won. Bob was a huge sports fan: playing golf, watching and attending NASCAR races and cheering on the Chicago Cubs and Bears and the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Bob is survived by his wife of 48 years, Joyce, of Vinton; two daughters: Cathy (Mike) Peters and Robin (Brandon) Dunbar, both of Vinton; one brother, Dennis (Janice) Domer of Tipton; and four grandsons: Forrest and Austin Peters and Chase and Cameron Dunbar.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
