Doris passed away, from Alzheimers in 2009, but Bob continued to volunteer hundreds of hours even after her death at Samaritan Bethany on 8th, receiving the Volunteer of the Year award in 2012 from the Aging Services of Minnesota. Bob was an avid fisherman and accomplished woodworker and golfer. One of his proudest teenage memories was carry professional golfer Byron Nelson's clubs at the country club in 1945. Mr. Nelson gave him a $5.00 tip and bought him a coke.

Bob is survived by a son Randy (Kathleen) Mieras of Rochester, two grandsons Jeffrey (Amy Drewes) Mieras of Rochester and Kevin (Lindsey) Mieras of Brooklyn Park, MN and five great grandchildren and his devoted caregiver Thuy Truong. He was preceded in death by his wife, parents, two sisters and one brother.

Bob WAS a wonderful volunteer for us at Samaritan Bethany. He became a friend and family member here. He will be SO missed by SO many. My deepest condolences. Allison DeRaad

Marilyn (Mieras) Doud on Dec 19, 2017

I'm so sad to hear of my cousin's passing, and send my condolences to his family and all who knew this kind, generous man. The last time I saw him was at my mother's funeral in 2005, and I remember talking with him about Doris and her struggle with Alzheimer's. When I was a child, our social life revolved around family, and Bob and Doris were certainly a part of that. I know he will be missed, and I hope the memories of a life well lived will give all of those who knew him some comfort.
