Robert (Bob) Gerald Mastel left us on August 7, 2019 at the age of 74. He was born on January 1, 1945, in San Joaquin. He was a longtime resident of Hoopa.

Robert was preceded in death by his wife, Mandy Sue Mastel, his father, Bob Mastel, his mother, Eva Mastel, and his sister, Marilyn Landergen.

He is survived by his children Chère Reynolds, Christina Rudick and John Mastel; his brother Art Mastel; his partner in life, Debbie Jo; his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and his nephews and nieces.

Robert was a giver. He would lend a hand to anyone who was in need of help. Life wasn’t always kind to him, but he always pushed on and knew in time that things would work itself out. His laughter was contagious, you would laugh just from his laughter. When he smiled his eyes would light up, especially if he was talking about his grandchildren. He will be missed so very much.

Family and friends are welcome to attend services on Saturday, September 7, 2019, at noon in Fortuna at Sunrise Cemetery.
