Robert “Bobby” W. Wateski, 45, of La Crosse passed away Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017, at Gundersen Health System in La Crosse.

He was born in Jacksonville, Fla., to Doris (Rossman) Wateski. He attended Logan High School.

Bobby enjoyed hunting, fishing, and going up north with his son, Dalton, and having father/son time. They would just crank the tunes and head out on the open road. Bobby loved his Minnesota Vikings, but most of all he loved his family and friends. Bobby would give you the shirt off his back.

Bobby is survived by his mom, Doris; son, Dalton Wateski; sister, Debbie (Chuck) Wateski; nephew, Dustin (Jeanette) Wateski; great-nephew, Jayden; and great-niece, Emma; and very special person in his life, Dan Berger. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and all his friends who he considered family.

A celebration of life will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, at George Street Pub, 1728 George St., La Crosse.

The Dickinson Family Funeral Home & Crematory is assisting the family with arrangements.
