Bob was born October 21,
1951, in Watertown, SD to
the late Lloyd and Geraldine
(Bonfoey) Colclazier.
They lived in Garden City,
SD for several years, until
relocating to a farm east
of Tulare. Bob attended
Tulare High School with
his close-knit classmates,
until his senior year when
the family moved north
of Redfield, SD. He
graduated from Redfield
High School in 1971. He
enlisted in the U.S. Navy
shortly after, serving during
the Vietnam War. After his
Honorable Discharge, he
relocated to Center Point,
IA to work in construction
where he met the love
of his life, Roberta Jean
Knight. They were married
May 17, 1980, in Walker,
IA. They made their
home in Redfield where
he joined his dad in the
trucking business, which he
continued for 37 years until
health issues forced him
into early retirement. Bob
loved trucking and hauled
everything from fuel to
grain, taking him all over
the United States.
Four children were born
into Bob and Roberta’s
41-year union. Bob was
a devoted husband, father,
brother, and Papa. He
loved all things Peterbilt,
Harley-Davidson, pheasant
hunting, golfing, his annual
birthday bonfires surrounded
by the many pine trees
he planted in his yard, and
spending time with his
family and friends.
Growing up, Bob was a
member of the Wesleyan
Church in Redfield. He
was a proud member of the
Redfield American Legion
and loved volunteering
for dinners, BINGO, and
representing the American
flag whenever he could.
Grateful for sharing his
life are his wife, Roberta
of Redfield; daughters:
Jennifer (Andrew) Weber
and their children Wynnie
& Waylon of Emery, SD;
Angela (Austin Wiarda)
and their daughter Brooklyn
of Castlewood, SD;
Sara and her children Riley,
Addison, and Bentley of
Redfield; and son Nicholas
(Jenna Blankenship) and
their children Caleb and
Beckett of Sioux Falls, SD.
He is also survived by two
sisters: Nancy (Kervin)
Simonson of Sisseton, SD
and Debora (and the late
Robert “Bobby”) Geramita
of Aberdeen, SD; brother
Randy of Redfield; and
numerous other relatives.
He was preceded in death
by his parents, parentsin-
law Robert and Eileen
Knight, four brothers-inlaw,
and many trucking and biker buddies.
