It is with great sadness that we share the news that longtime Salem Chamber Senior Ambassador and dear friend Bob Sticha passed away on November 19, 2023 at the age of 90.
A dedicated Chamber volunteer and supporter of Salem businesses, Bob was beloved by our community for his unwavering positivity and enthusiasm. Always a bright light at Chamber functions and community events, Bob will be missed by all those who knew him, including his fellow Ambassadors and Chamber staff, whom he visited often.
Thank you to Bob’s friend and Ambassador Bruce Womack for his special connection to Bob and support of him in his later years. This photo (above) was taken of the two friends at Greeters on August 4, 2023.
Bob is survived by his three sisters, Pat Pederson, Betty Grant, and Joan Ames, his son, Jim Sticha, his daughters, Debi London (Tate) and Linda Sticha Nelson (Joel), his four grandchildren, Alyssa, Lacey (Sean Sellers), Kellen, and Ellee London, and his great-grandson, Rein Sellers.
We send our condolences to Bob’s family, friends, and Chamber members who knew and loved him like we did.
