Robert Sago, 77, of Corvallis, Montana passed away on December 20, 2018 at Marcus Daly Hospice. He was born on January 31, 1941 in McKeesport, Pennsylvania to Edward George and Julia Anchak Sago.

Bob was most likely known through his employment at the local feed store.  He started when it was known as Peavey, then it became Lake Milling before it became Lakeland Feed.  To his customers, he was affectionately known as “Big Bob” or “Chicken Bob”.  It did not seem to matter if you were in the market for chicks, he seemed to convince you that you needed a dozen or more by the time you left.

Bob also loved hunting and fishing with his son Ed and his grandson Kaleb.  He enjoyed classic Mopars and attending car shows in the Spokane Valley. He also enjoyed sitting in the garden watering his plants.

Robert is preceded in death by his parents and daughter Roberta Sago.

Robert is survived by his wife Dolores, daughter Rebecca, son Ed, grandson Kaleb (Brittany), great granddaughter Lennon and great grandson Matthew.
