In loving memory of our dear father, Robert Duval Jackson.
Ninety-eight years ago, on July 18th, 1925, in Denver, Colorado, a remarkable man came into this world. Born to the late John and Gladys Jackson, Robert was a devoted brother to Esther Montgomery, Betty Frasier, and Margaret Hammit, who preceded him in death. In his lifetime, he was blessed with three children—Ronald Roe from Montrose, Colorado, Carolyn Gene Ethridge-Taggart from Montrose, Colorado, and Barbara Jackson from Coos Bay, Oregon. His son Ronald left this world before him, but his daughters Carolyn and Barbara carry on his spirit.
Robert’s love story began on May 11th, 1944, when he married the love of his life, Dorothy Gene McCombs. Their union was a source of joy and strength until Dorothy’s life was tragically cut short on September 27th, 1974. Together, they navigated the journey of life, facing its challenges hand in hand.
A proud Navy veteran, Robert served as an American hero during World War II. His dedication to his country was matched only by his commitment to family. A businessman, contractor, and broker, he wore many hats throughout his career, but the one he cherished most was that of a father, which he was remarkable at.
Robert was a devout member of the Episcopalian Church and an active participant in the Elks Lodge, embodying the principles of service and community. His faith and involvement in these organizations were integral parts of his life.
Beyond his professional and community contributions, Robert embraced life with passion. His hobbies included swimming, hunting, fishing, flying his plane, and restoring vintage vehicles. His zest for life was contagious, leaving an indelible mark on those who shared in his adventures.
Robert Duval Jackson will be laid to rest on December 5th, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. MT at Crippin Chapel, 802 E Main St., Montrose, CO 81401. As two loving daughters, we celebrate the life of our father—a man whose kindness, strength, and love will forever echo in our hearts.
May he rest in peace.
