Robert “Robbie” Bolan went home to be with his Lord and Saviour on Tuesday, June 9, at the age of 58 after his health started to decline due to a stroke in March.
Robbie was born March 20, 1962, in Ogden, Utah, to Gerald G. and Cynthia L. Bolan (Simonson). He spent his first nine years growing up in Ogden. Following the passing of his father, his mother remarried and they moved to Kemmerer, where he spent his childhood and part of his adult life. He later moved to Havre, Montana, to be with his mom and stepdad.
Robbie enjoyed fishing every chance he got. He made it into the Havre Daily News when he caught an 8-pound Northern Pike back in 2006.
Robbie was known for being kind, helpful, outgoing and funny. Robbie made friends wherever he went with his infectious grin and the way he made people laugh. He had a heart of gold toward everybody in his life. His family was his whole world and he loved all of them unconditionally.
He was preceded in death by his father Gerald G. Bolan; uncles Maylen Hebdon, George Mahas, Bob Bolan and Gene Howell; aunts Wilda Howell and Lillian Hebdon; great grandmother Pearl Hebdon and both sets of grandparents.
He is survived by his mother and stepdad Cynthia L. and Vernon L. Biebinger; his brothers Gerald “Rick” (Deanne) Bolan, John (Cindy) Bolan, Ronald (Danielle) Bolan and David (Beccie) Biebinger; his sisters Brenda Bolan and Darla Biebinger Peterson; his aunts Janet Mahas and Shelly Bosteder; uncle Dennis Bosteder and many nieces and nephews.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Wilderness Funeral Home of Chinook, Montana.
A private celebration of life was held at the home of his mother.
