Robert Myron Overson

May 31, 1940 ~ December 21, 2018 (age 78)

Robert Myron Overson was born on May 31, 1940 in Central, Arizona and died in Tucson, Arizona on December 21, 2018. 

Robert is survived by:  his wife, Janet Barney Overson, 4 children;  Debra Fretz (Michael), Annette Richards (David), John Overson (Robin) and Jim Overson (Caressa), 1 brother, Calvert, 18 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild.

Robert was known as Bob to his family and friends.  He was a heavy equipment operator for his brother, Calvert in San Diego, California.  He didn't like the big city, so after two years he moved his family back to the Gila Valley.  In 1964 they moved to Benson to run a dairy farm.  Later, he purchased some cattle and found it to be an expensive hobby.  He began driving for Ozella Trucking and then drove the milk truck for United Dairymen.

Bob loved to fish, hunt and camp in the White Mountains.  His favorite place was the East Fork of the Black River.

Bob will be missed by his family.  He was a loving grandpa who had many stories to share with them.
