Rob Roy McGregor, 81, of Friday Harbor, Wash. passed away peacefully on Monday, July 21, 2014 in Friday Harbor. Teddy, his wife of 60 years, was by his side.

His family will remember a generous and loving father and husband who always knew what he wanted. Traveling was a passion and he was fortunate enough to see the world.

Rob was many things: charitable, decisive, funny, and determined. He was an excellent golfer, a better poker player and he enjoyed an evening gin and tonic. We will miss him.

Rob is survived by his wife, Teddy; son and daughter-in-law, Jim and Mary McGregor; daughter, Betsy McGregor; grandchildren, Brittany and spouse, Ryan Gaither, Rob Roy McGregor; and great-grandchildren, Ava, Layla, and Samuel.

A celebration of Rob’s life will take place on Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014 at 1:30 p.m., at the Presbyterian Church in Friday Harbor. Arrangements are in the care of Evans Funeral Chapel and Crematory, Anacortes, and the San Juan Islands.
