Robert Lee “Bob” Dyke, 79, Bella Vista, Arkansas, died Friday, February 16, 2024 at Mercy Hospital in Rogers, Arkansas.

He was born March 30, 1944 in Parsons, Kansas, the son of George F. “Frank” and Elsie L. (Modesitt) Dyke.  Bob attended a country school through the eighth grade then attended and graduated from Thayer High School.  He served in the U.S. Navy from 1962-1968 and was a member of the American Legion.  On April 6, 1980, he was united in marriage to Marlene Sue Koerner in Thayer, and they celebrated over 43 years of marriage.  Bob worked for Chanute Manufacturing Company for 20 years, Kawneer Company for 25 years, and Wilcox Truck Sales for 15 years.  He had a love for horses, and saved enough money when he was young to buy his first horse named Lightning and later in life loved his Appaloosa named Ranger.  He enjoyed bass fishing, was a jack of all trades, and used his carpentry, plumbing, and electrical skills to build two homes and help his family in any way.  Bob was hardworking, dependable, and cared about the well-being of everyone he knew.
