December 25, 1952 – December 28, 2016
Robert Thomas Sims Jr., passed away Monday, December 28, 2015 in Arcadia, California surrounded by his family. Bob grew up in Edina, Minnesota and was extremely proud of his Midwestern roots and values.
Bob’s was an entrepreneur and he had a passion for real estate. He spent his career developing projects ranging from single family homes to luxury senior communities in Texas and California. If you asked him, he never worked a day in his life.
Bob was predeceased by his parents, Robert and Gloria Sims. Bob is survived by the love of his life, Reni Rose; her daughter, Chelsea; his daughters, Morgan, Devon, Shelby, and Taylor; his grandchildren, Charlee Grace and Jack Thomas; and his siblings, Mari Sullivan, Lisa Carrico, Tom Sims, William Sims, Mike Sims, and Mark Sims.
Bob was a proud, devoted father and was blessed with four daughters. He taught them that they had value and inspired them to maximize their potential. If you want to see a twinkle in his eyes and listen to him boast with pride for hours, just ask: How are Reni and the girls?
Bob truly was larger than life and will be dearly missed by all those who loved him. His service will be held on February 19, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. at Mater Dolorosa in Sierra Madre, CA followed by a celebration of his life. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be sent to Team USA in support of the US Women’s Paralympic Swimming Team or the Lone Survivor Foundation at www.lonesurvivorfoundation.org.
