Robert Eugene Drake, age 85, a life long resident of the Buffalo area, passed away October 11, 2021. He left peacefully in his home surrounded by family and friends; his loving wife, Dorothy, his sister-in-law Caroline, a niece, Deb, his nephew, Greg, and best friend, Lynn!

He was loved by many and will be missed by all.

After completing his GED, Bob enlisted in the Air Force, where he attained the status of Master Sargeant, while serving in the Vietnam Conflict. Receiving an Honorable Medical discharge, Bob returned to Cokato, MN in 1979, and purchased the Troll Inn Bar. It was there that he met Dorothy, and on May 2, 1981, they were married, settling in Buffalo.

Bob loved the out of doors and when he could, you would find him fishing. The neighborhood kids remember Bob sitting in his garage watching them play in the street and always eager to offer a helping hand.

Services for Bob have been scheduled for Tuesday at 10:00 AM at The Peterson Chapel in Buffalo. Visitation will be held at The Peterson Chapl from 6-8 PM on Monday, October 15th and again one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow at Fort Snelling at 12:30 PM with full military honors.

The Peterson Chapel, Buffalo assisted the family with arrangements.
