- February 11, 2019

Our beloved brother Robert E. Mason, age 69, passed away Feb 8, 2019 at Spearfish Canyon Healthcare in Spearfish, SD.

Bobby was born April 26, 1949 in Deadwood, SD to Robert & Evelyn (Dryer) Mason. He has been active at Black Hills Works in Rapid City, SD since 1972 learning many trades and most importantly to live independently. In 1995 he was honored at the Black Hills Works Recognition Gala and featured in the RC Journal. Also, he was a participant in the Special Olympics and proud of his medals. Our brother enjoyed country music, his Denver Broncos, fishing, bowling, swimming and his model cars. Family was very important, he was always reminding us of when the next holiday or his birthday was coming up. A must-do would be going to his McDonalds or as he would say “O’Donalds”. Church was a big part of his life, he liked to listen to the Gospel or as he mispronounced it “the Gossip”. Bobby had many challenges and obstacles in life, but he always persevered with strength and resilience.

He is survived by his brother Steve (Launa) Mason, his sisters Linda (Dan)Green, Deanna (Darryl) Cornell, numerous nephews & nieces.

Bobby was preceded in death by his parents Robert & Evelyn Mason, Grandparents Maurice & Loula Mason, Edward & Ethel Dryer and great-nephew Kyle.

Our family is grateful to everyone who inspired, influenced and cared for Bobby throughout his life.  

 We will be celebrating his life at Trinity United Methodist Church in Lead, SD Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 11:00 am. Please dress casually as Bobby was a Bronco Jersey and Jean type guy.

 In lieu of flowers, if you choose to give please consider Black Hills Works or Spearfish Canyon Health & Rehabilitation (formerly David Dorset Home).

 Arrangements are under the care of the Lead-Deadwood Memorial Chapel of Lead.
