Robert (Bob) Julian Marks, a long time resident of rural Blanchardville, WI, passed away on February 17, 2021 after a courageous battle with multiple health issues. Bob was preceded in death by his father Julian Marks and his beloved mother Zelma (Sally) whom he cared for until her passing in 2005. Bob is survived by his daughter Melissa and her family. Although Bob projected a gruff exterior, those closest to him knew him as kind and gentle, with a quick wit, dry humor, and a heart of gold. He will be deeply missed. The family would like to thank the friends and neighbors who selflessly assisted Bob and provided care throughout his illness. Their kindness will not be forgotten. Memorials in Bob's name may be made to the Green County Humane Society.
