Robert Andrew Culbertson, Jr.

- July 24, 2019

Robert Andrew Culbertson was born February 10, 1956, to Edna (Erickson) and Robert A. Culbertson, Sr. in Sturgis, SD.  He earned his wings on July 22, 2019, in Rapid City at Regional Hospital. 

     Bob was the 5th and final child for the family.  Bob enjoyed growing up in Sturgis.  He was a man who would do anything for anyone.  His sense of humor and laugh is something we will never forget.  The love he showed his family, friends, and everyone he met is something that will never be forgotten.  His passions were golf, playing cribbage every chance he had, spending as much time with friends and family as possible, and spoiling his grandchildren.

     Bob joined the SD National Guard in 1972.  The stories that were told and laughs that were shared were still some of the best times for him.  Bob worked for Pope and Talbot for 27 years.  He was most recently working for Spearfish Middle School, where he loved everyone he worked with, from the other staff members to the kids.

     Bob married Sharon Alice Sundquist on May 23, 1981, in Spearfish, SD.  Bob and Sharon shared two sons that he was very proud of.

     Bob is survived by his wife and best friend, Sharon Culbertson from Spearfish; son, Lanny (Melissa) Culbertson and their children, Mackenzie and Noah from Rapid City; son, Kevin Culbertson from Spearfish; brother, John (Mary) Culbertson from Hot Springs; sister, Janis Culbertson from Spearfish; sister, Sherrill (Van) Dennis from Sturgis; and sister, Karlene (Dwight) Griffee from Sturgis.  Also grateful for sharing his life were numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and all of his friends who were like family.

     He was preceded in death by his father, Robert Culbertson; mother, Edna Matz; stepfather, Earl Matz; infant son, Shane Culbertson; and numerous other friends and family members, who all welcomed him into heaven with open arms.

     Visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Wednesday July 24, 2019, at Kinkade Funeral Chapel in Sturgis.

     Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Thursday, July 25, 2019, at Spearfish United Methodist Church in Spearfish, SD.  Interment will follow at 2:30 p.m. at Mount Calvary Cemetery in Rapid City, SD.

     Thank you to all of our friends and family for all of your support during this difficult time.
