Robert Joseph Parrow was born in Ortonville, Minn., on March 27, 1931, one of 11 children of Adlow & Rose (Baumann) Parrow. He married Evon Ekstrom; they later divorced. Bob met & married the love of his life, Audrey (Berg) Baustadt. Bob & Audrey lived life to the fullest. He was the true
patriarch of the entire family. He was a very talented musician, playing guitar with the Classic Country Jammers right up until his illness. Bob's greatest joy was his grandchildren; he was especially close to
Candee's oldest daughter, Kenzie "The Bum". Bob was "Bob of All Trades" and could fix anything. He helped everyone and expected little in return. He made a huge impact on everyone who knew him and we will all miss him.
Survivors include his loving wife of 35 years, Audrey; sons and spouse, David (Sandy) Parrow, Rob (Theresa) Parrow, James (April) Baustadt, Jeff (Kim) Baustadt; daughters and spouses, Vicky (Bob) Stanton, Renee (Rob) Crisler, Candee (Stacey) Singer; brother, LeClair (Sylvia) Parrow; sisters, Dorothy Schott, Gloria (Howard) Peterson, and Lorraine (Les) Newton; 15 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Lorna Peterson; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, five brothers and one sister.
