Obituary

Robert William Henn was born on November 27, 1942 in Santa Monica, California. He passed away suddenly on May 19, 2020 at the age of 77 in Bakersfield, California. Bob will be forever remembered by his two sons Chris (Manya) and Mike (Courtney). He will also be fondly remembered by his six grandchildren, Kathleen, Tara Jean, Mikie, Khrista, Terrell, and Cavanaugh, three great-grandchildren, Aelianna, Zahyra and Isabelle, and his brother Rick Henn. Furthermore, he will be greatly missed by all his nieces, nephews, extended family, and dear friends. He will be reunited with his daughter Teresa in heaven, who passed away before him. Bob loved his family very much. He was a devout Catholic who felt the call to served in the US Army in the Quartermaster Corps and was immensely patriotic. He was also an enormous UCLA fan as he was a UCLA Bruin himself. He annually looked forward to the Rose Bowl, and it's parade with the hope blue and gold would be represented. Entertainment came very naturally to him and Bob cherished touring with a local group in the Antelope Valley known as “Nuns for Fun.” Musically, he excelled at the drums, keyboard, and singing and even got to appear as Elvis or Bing Crosby from time to time. The business world was in his blood from a young age, as his family owned the “Henn Cafe” on Sepulveda Blvd in Southern California, where he enjoyed working as a young boy. He later became involved in his community through volunteering and entered the real estate industry, where he worked as an agent for over forty years. Bob had a great sense of humor and loved old classics like Laurel & Hardy, Abbott & Costello, and The Pink Panther. He had a great passion for cooking and experimented in the kitchen often. Every year he would make his infamous Thanksgiving stuffing and rum cake. Bob also had a great interest in wine and had a vast knowledge of the art of wine tasting and pairing. He desired to learn and speak new languages and study everything thing there was to know about Ireland; Saint Patrick’s Day was a favorite of his. Bob will be missed deeply by his family, friends, and peers. We love and miss you already Dad, Grandpa, and Friend!

Bob did not want a Memorial Service. We’d love for you to look at the pictures and to leave a message or a story about Bob if you’d like. The family thanks you in advance for all the well wishes and memories.

In honor of my precious "other Dad". He truly loved me unconditionally since I was 8. Will miss him beyond words. Love and peace to all family and friends who cherish him. He joins my beloved sister - friend, Teresa, over the rainbow, and deserves the very best Heaven can provide 🙏💔💫💋

🌈🙏❤️Bob Henn was my "other Dad". He treated me like I mattered (which was unforgettable) since I was a young child. Teresa was my best friend in Long Beach since 4th grade and Teri the boys and Karen took me in after school most days. Thanks to Bob's selflessness, Teri and i actually became closer when she moved to the Valley to join her Dad and big brothers for Junior High. Bob made trips at least monthly in traffic for HOURS just to make sure Teri and I could spend weekends together. He treated me like his own, took me on vacations, fed me, always was kind to me💕.

Bob put in a good word for me when I went to Marymount College, via his Catholic contacts... So when I arrived I was treated like a Saint! He and Teri shared the same (Sagittarius) loves... Treasured their family and always wanted to gather everyone together 💕 He loved telling us of his genealogy, Malibu and Beach Boys stories, of gorgeous Karen's American Indian roots, and he was SO PROUD of his 3 kids, his Dad and brothers. Bob exposed me to the Arts, and the Pageant of the Masters... Taking us many times, during and even long after his brother Rick was heading the Orchestra and writing the score for the performances. 🎶 I recall his CD he made with NUNS for FUN, and we sat in my car studying and enjoying his solos while he'd explain all that was happening if we were to see the performance live👏❣️

Teri couldn't always be there when she wanted to be, and sometimes she missed supporting her Dad during events when he had health scares, so she'd send me to represent her and keep her in the loop. I know it was so hard for her to be without him and her brothers sometimes, but now I have to imagine that the two of them are laughing and singing together🎶❣️

I know Bob loved his grandchildren so much, and he wanted to give everything he could to make life easier for his kids and grandkids. He and I would talk for at least an hour or more, momthly, and he'd come join us for holidays several occasions 😊 I will miss his calls, and his charming character, and his greeting and signed off on every conversation we ever had, "Bridge!!!! It's your 'other Daaaddd... Bobbyyyyeah!... Love you unconditionally and completely, GOODBYE FOR NOW."

And back at you Bob... love you and goodbye for now. My other Dad.

He left me a message that last evening, and I still have his voice... Thank you precious friend 💖
Love Bridget DuKet

PS: So that's where Mike got his talent for making Pink Panther birthday cakes?!! 🎂💕👍
