Robert Donald ‘Bob’ Mager, 91, of 513 Croix St., Negaunee, entered into eternal rest on Monday morning, February 1, 2021 at the Marquette County Medical Care Facility.

Bob was born July 7, 1929 in Negaunee to Arthur and Lila (Alongo) Mager and graduated from Negaunee High School, Class of 1948. Following graduation, he served in the United States Army in Japan, being honorably discharged in 1950.

Mr. Mager was employed as an electrician for Cleveland Cliffs Iron Company. Prior to his CCI employment, he served as a police officer for the City of Negaunee. Bob was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Negaunee and was a 32nd Degree Mason. Most important to him was spending time with his beloved family.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Stanley Mager; and two sisters, Hazel Uitto and Beverly Roberts.

Bob’s family extends a heartfelt thank you to the staff at MCMCF for their compassionate care provided.

We met Bob and Family while stationed at the former AFB K.I. Sawyer in 1962.
Over the years we have remained the Best of Friends and shared Wonderful times together in America and the United Kingdom, especially in Cornwall England where Bob
was interested in the Mining Industry history.
Bob was so very Proud of his Family, they were the World to him and he loved
each and every one.
Bob will be greatly missed and will always be remembered with Love and Respect.
If I may add also he was a 'True Brit'
Our heartfelt Condolences and Love to Nancy and all the Family.
Diane Mckown and Family.

My condolences to the entire family.
I knew of Bob my entire life as my parents always talked of him so fondly.
I’ll always remember him coming to the Uk to visit us and what great time we always had.
