Robert Underhill, 69, Rochester

Robert Duane Underhill, 69, passed away peacefully on Jan. 29, 2017 at his residence in Rochester.  Bob dealt with many medical issues which stemmed from having polio at a young age.

Bob was born on April 26, 1947 in Austin, Minnesota.  He is survived by his wife Louise Underhill; two step-sons Mark Percival and Gary Percival; his mother, Betty Derby and two brothers, John (Megan) Underhill and Larry Underhill.  He was preceded in death by his father Robert Underhill and sister Janice Richards.

Bob was an avid reader and enjoyed reading books on his computer, especially about computer programming.  Bob loved the outdoors and fishing was a great pastime.  He truly enjoyed hockey, especially the Minnesota Wild as well as the Gophers and Twins.

A funeral service is planned for Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017 at 11:00 am at the First Presbyterian Church, 101 6th Ave NW, Kasson with Pastor Brian Egelston officiating.  Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the church.  Burial will be at Grandview Memorial Gardens, Austin at a later date.

Bob was a unique person and touched many lives.  A special thank you to John, Cassisity and Tucker Chapman of Rochester for their caring hospitality over the past several years.  

In lieu of flowers, the family prefers memorials to the church.  Dibble Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Kasson is in charge of arrangements.  Online condolences may be shared at
